Trent Guy – Special Teams Player of the Week

Guy’s latest honour comes as a result of his 125 yards on six kick returns and 65 yards on four punt returns in the Alouettes’ 41-28 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats last weekend. His night’s work included 103 yards on five kick returns in the first half alone.

The former University of Louisville Cardinal standout is now sixth in the CFL with 526 yards on kickoff returns this season. The 25-year-old CFL rookie has also amassed 198 yards on 29 punt returns, including a 41-yard return last Friday, his longest of the year.

Guy received this same honour a week ago after setting a franchise record with a 129-yard missed field goal for a touchdown against the Toronto Argonauts.
