Jovan Olafioye – OL– BC Lions


BC Lions tackle Jovan Olafioye was named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman at the 2012 Gibson’s Finest Player Awards.

After coming up short in the same category in 2011, Olafioye rebounded in fine form in 2012, anchoring a BC offensive line that allowed the club to lead the league in yards-per-game, as well as rushing yards.

Olafioye was also a part of a Lions offensive that allowed a league-best 30 sacks.
