announced their league All-Stars today and the lone Tiger-Cat was Defensive End Justin Hickman.
Hickman was one of the best defensive players in the league this season, most notably tying for the league lead in sacks with 13. His selection was almost guaranteed and is definitely completely deserved.
I was a bit surprised to see none of the other four Tiger-Cats – Linebackers Jamall Johnson and Rey Williams, Receiver Chris Williams and Kicker Justin Medlock – were named. I thought Johnson had an excellent shot at being named, and I would have put him in there ahead of Chip Cox.
I also thought that Chris Williams could be named, but seeing the four Receivers that were selected – Jamel Richardson, Geroy Simon, Fred Stamps and Nik Lewis – it's hard to complain about Williams's omission.
But congratulations to Justin Hickman on his first league All-Star selection.
