Burlington, Ont. – Dion Pellerin has been named Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Offensive Football Player of the Week for the period ending September 9, 2019.
Offensive Player of the Week – Dion Pellerin, Waterloo Warriors
The Waterloo Warriors needed every bit of offence they could muster in what turned out to be a shoot out with the Windsor Lancers, and Dion Pellerin did all he could and then some to play his part for the black and gold to come out victorious.
Simply put, Pellerin was a beast for the Warriors, as he anchored the ground game in the team’s come-from-behind 45-42 win on Saturday. The fourth-year running back amassed 200 yards on the ground, including a 69-yard touchdown that opened the second half scoring and gave the Warriors the three-point edge at the time. The production didn’t stop on the ground; however, as Pellerin also made his presence felt in the team’s aerial attack. The geography major reeled in a pair of receptions for 16 yards, including an eight-yard major in the final frame that once again gave his team the lead.
With Saturday’s performance, Pellerin now leads the OUA in rushing yards per game at 156.5.
