Blue Bombers’ Marc Liegghio Wins 13th Man Sports’ Week 4 Player of the Week

Week four was an interesting time in the Canadian Football League, especially with the Edmonton Elks and Toronto Argonauts game being postponed for the time being due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Elks’ locker room. Although there were only three games this week, it didn’t take away from the action on the field.

For the first time since running this series in week two, a player has run away with the votes.

Below you can see the final vote count.

Votes were counted from Twitter and from r/CFL on Reddit

The Blue Bombers have had concerns at kicker all season long with Tyler Crapigna struggling to make his field goals on a consistent basis, and while Liegghio was a time count violation away from missing the go-ahead kick late in the game, he was given a second chance and was 4/4 on the night. He did miss an extra point that would have been critical had Rene Paredes made his long field goal at the end of the game, but he came up just short. Although it wasn’t a perfect night for Liegghio by any means, he’s adding his name to the list of players who have won 13th Man Sports Player of the Week.
