With his first place ranking in three of the five events, Samuel Giguere of Sherbrooke was the clear winner with Dylan Barker of Saskatchewan and Brady Browne of Manitoba keeping pace on the defensive side. The list includes a good mix of receivers, defensive backs, linebackers and one former Hec Crighton Award winning running back. This is not surprising given the athletic skills needed at these positions.
Note that no offensive or defensive linemen cracked the Top 10, which doesnât suggest that these individuals are not great athletes. Trench warfare on the gridiron takes a different skill set altogether; linemen arenât expected to have 4.50 times in the 40-yard dash, for example. Realistically, these guys donât have a lot of ground to cover. Strength is the most important attribute at these positions.
