Baggs Named Defensive Player of the Month

The Players of the Month for October have been announced, and to no one's surprise, Stevie Baggs has snagged Defensive Player of the Month.

Baggs was a dominant force on Hamilton's Defensive Line over the last month. Baggs finished the month with 20 tackles, four sacks and three fumble recoveries – two of which he took back for touchdowns – and an interception. He won Defensive Player of the Week twice in October, after dominating performances against the Argonauts (where he had two sacks) and the Alouettes (where he returned a fumble for a touchdown and had an interception).

I would have been more surprised had Baggs not won this award. Baggs was simply spectacular over the final month of the season (his first since returning to the CFL from the NFL), and his addition provided a spark to the Tiger-Cat Defense.

A well-deserved award for the man we call Shakespeare.
