  • Print

QUEBEC -- University of Ottawa quarterback Brad Sinopoli was named the Canadian Interuniversity Sport football player of the year on Thursday night.

The native of Peterborough, Ont., became the fourth Gee-Gees' player -- all quarterbacks -- to claim the prestigious Hec Crighton Trophy after Phil Cote in 1999, Rick Zmich in 1982 and Paul Paddon in 1970.

The other individual award winners announced during the CIS all-Canadian banquet were St. Francis Xavier linebacker Henoc Muamba of Mississauga, Ont., who captured the Presidents' Trophy as the nation's top defensive player; Laval defensive end Arnaud Gascon-Nadon of Montreal, who received the J.P. Metras Trophy as the most outstanding down lineman; Calgary quarterback Eric Dzwilewski of Boise, Idaho, who claimed the Peter Gorman Trophy as rookie of the year; and Manitoba linebacker Thomas Hall of Winnipeg, who for the second straight year received the Russ Jackson Award for best combining academics, athletics and citizenship.

The winner of the Frank Tindall Trophy as CIS coach of the year will be announced today.

Sinopoli, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound senior, led the country with 2,756 passing yards, 22 touchdown passes and 184 completions in conference play, all school records. He was also second in the nation and first in the OUA with 301 attempts, another team mark.
