Sun receiver Anderson voted CJFL Player of the Week

The Okanagan Sun are continuing this season's trend of getting league-wide recognition.

This week, the Canadian Junior Football League has named quarterback Nick Wenman as the Offensive Player of the Week, while returner Nathanael Anderson has been named Special Teams Player of the Week.

With both in the running for the league-wide Player of the Week, Anderson came out on top, securing 53% of the vote.

Sun DB Tye Kitzman won that distinction after Week 1, which is voted on by fans through a poll on the CJFL's website.

After an injury to starter Keith Zyla, Wenman lead his team to a 36-0 win over Kamloops on Saturday night.

Wenman completed 20 of 30 passes that night, and threw for 278 yards, for an average of 13.9 yards per catch.

He also connected for three touchdowns through the air, to Anderson, Kyler Mosley, and Liam Crane.

Anderson returned five punts on Saturday, totalling 95 yards.

That included a 28-yard return, which was on top of his seven catches and 52-yard TD reception.

As well, the Sun have held onto their #2 spot in the league power rankings, for a second straight week.

The only difference from Week 1 saw the Westshore Rebels moving up one spot to 4th place, after a win over the VI Raiders.

The Calgary Colts, who have yet to start their season, fell one spot down to 5th place.

The Rams and the Sun will battle in Langley this weekend, with kickoff set for 5 pm on Saturday.
