Gibson's Players of the Month: July 2013
Not surprisingly when you give some thought to his start, Kory Sheets dominated the Gibson's scorecard for the July Player of the Month selections.
Sheets' who appears on a pace for not only a record breaking but an award winning season, ran his way onto the Gibson's roster for July, his running totals for the month of 712 yards on 118 carries for 4 touchdowns, setting a pace for the rest of the league's running backs to set as their gold standard for 2013.
The Als Kyries Hebert claimed the Defensive honours for the month, one of the few bright moments for an Alouette season of misery so far, the Als defensive unit doing their best to keep the Als hopes alive, led by Hebert who has been spectacular on defence in the early going.
Joining them on the Gibson's Player of the Month roster are two Stampeders, Jon Cornish who like Sheets sets the pace for pretty well every game he plays in, securing a spot as Canadian Player for July, the Stamps kicker Rene Paredes who continues to impress with his reliable kicking foot rounds out the monthly awards as Special Teams player for July.
