Westshore lineman wins BCFC defensive player of week honours

Kent Hicks piled up the tackles in Rebels' loss against the Sun

Defensive lineman Kent Hicks has earned the Westshore Rebels’ third straight B.C. Lions defensive player of the week award for the B.C. Football Conference.

Hicks, a 6-4, 290-pounder out of Abbotsford, was honoured Monday following his one sack, five tackles and one assisted tackle performance against the Okanagan Sun. He led a Rebels defensive effort that limited the Sun to one offensive touchdown in a 27-21 loss.

Previous defensive winners from the Rebels were linebacker Shaun Robinson, for his efforts in a win over the Vancouver Island Raiders, and defensive back Julio Makambo for his performance in an opening week win over Langley.

Westshore running back Jamel Lyles earned offensive player of the week last week and the special teams award for his work against Langley.

The Rebels (2-1) take on the Broncos (0-3) in Kamloops this Saturday night.
