Toronto quarterback Clay Sequeira and Montreal defensive back Marc-Antoine Dequoy and Concordia return specialist / running back Kevin Foster are the U SPORTS Football Players of the Week, for the period ending September 2, 2019
Offensive Player of the Week: Clay Sequeira, Toronto
Sequeira, a Fourth-year quarterback, had another standout night, leading the Varsity Blues football team to a 54-26 victory over the Windsor Lancers in their 2019 OUA home opener on Sunday night at Varsity Stadium.
The commerce major from Pierrefonds, Que., who started his 2019 campaign off with a bang in Week 1 after posting over 450 yards in the air, doubled down on his electrifying efforts thus far with another stat-stuffing performance in Week 2. The veteran pivot went 17-for-28 for 464 yards and six touchdowns, showing off his arm strength on several occasions with a few big game-changing plays, including three 50+ yard touchdowns in the final frame.
After a low-scoring start to the game, Sequeira certainly opened things up in a big way for the Blues in the final quarter, leading his team to a 35-point stretch and 21 unanswered to dash any hopes of a Windsor comeback. Adding to his impressive day in the air, Sequeira also tacked on 110 yards on the ground on 13 rushes for a second straight week of over 500 all-purpose yards.
Sequeira currently sits atop the nation, leading all U SPORTS quarterbacks with over 460 passing yards per game, 12 yards per attempt, and 10 touchdowns.
