Former Western star Andy Fantuz just scored on a 29-yard pass-and-run play to put the Saskatchewan Roughriders ahead by nine points in the fourth quarter of the Grey Cup game, so he's a possibility to be named the game's most valuable Canadian.
Fantuz has had three catches for 61 yards, including a grab that set up a field goal late in the half. Those might sound like modest stats, but in a defence-dominated game, it's made a difference for Saskatchewan, who's leading 23-16 with half the fourth quarter gone.
He would be the second Mustangs receiver in recent history to take top Canadian honours.. Dave Sapunjis, who did so three times with the Calgary Stampeders in the 1990s, did it for the first time when he was the same age Fantuz is now, 24. Now there's parallel.
