LANGLEY — Once again, here’s our best effort to turn subjectivity into a science.
Ahh, it’s pretty tough to do.
Still, when you break 300 yards rushing in the AAA ranks it’s pretty tough to not get the nod.
The B.C. Lions’ ‘Neon’ Leon Bright did his thing returning kicks and lining up as a receiver back in the late 1970s, now Notre Dame’s ‘Neon’ Teon Alexander-Amour, Varsity Letter’s Player of the Week, is lighting things up for the Jugglers by doing it out of the offensive backfield
