The CFL debut of Rakeem Cato in week number one caught the attention of pretty well everyone from fans in the stands and viewers at home, to the panel of judges that this year will select the Shaw Top Performers each week.
Cato's strong performance in Week One delivered him the debut 1st Place for the 2015 season.
With the CFL revising its Players of the Week process, it would seem that there will be much attention directed towards the offensive side of the game for this year. Something that may not sit very well with defensive players, who will be wondering what they have to do gain a little respect.
For the first rankings of the new season, the CFL panel settled on two quarterbacks in Cato and Trevor Harris and a wide receiver in Ryan Smith for the awarding of points in week one.
With the Fans taking to social media to salute the QB position by giving Drew Willy the most tweets to secure him the Fans vote in week one.
