Toronto, ON – (July 21, 2009) – Jarious Jackson, Dwaine Carpenter, Paris Jackson and Nick Setta were named the Gibson’s Finest CFL Players of the Week for week three, the Canadian Football League announced today.
The four players were chosen by a panel of judges that includes former Canadian Football League players Matt Dunigan and Duane Forde, now of TSN, and Pierre Vercheval of RDS.
Jarious Jackson was sensational while filling in for the injured Buck Pierce, as he threw for 362 yards and four touchdowns while completing 19 of 28 pass attempts. On his first play, Jackson threw a 45-yard pass to Geroy Simon that set-up the game’s opening touchdown by running back Martell Mallet.
Jackson also threw touchdown passes to Paris Jackson, Emmanuel Arceneaux and another to Simon while leading the Lions to their first win of the season.
Dwaine Carpenter played a huge role in the Stamps victory against the Toronto Argonauts this past week, as he recovered two fumbles and scored a touchdown, while also collecting three tackles and one quarterback sack.
Nick Setta came up big for the Ticats this week as they defeated the Blue Bombers 25-13 at Ivor Wynne Stadium. Setta made three of four field goal attempts, hitting from 32, 36, and 42 yards to help Hamilton win their second game of the season. Setta scored 13 of the Tiger-Cats 25 points.
Paris Jackson’s big game helped the BC Lions collect their first win of the season by defeating the Edmonton Eskimos 40-22 at Commonwealth Stadium. Jackson had nine catches for 126 yards and one touchdown, and was one of replacement QB Jarious Jackson’s favourite targets all night.
