Defensive lineman David Ménard of the Montreal Alouettes and veteran quarterbacks Zach Collaros of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Jeremiah Masoli of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats were named the CFL's to players for October on Wednesday.
Ménard had six sacks, nine tackles and two forced fumbles in five games as Montreal posted a 4-1 record. He collected at least one sack in each game this past month.
The Chicoutimi, Que., native was named a CFL Top Performer in Week 11 after having two sacks, two tackles and a forced fumble in the Alouettes’ 27-16 victory over the Ottawa Redblacks.
Collaros led Winnipeg to a perfect 4-0 mark as it clinched first place in the West Division. He completed 72.1 per cent of his passes for 1,101 yards and eight touchdowns.
Masoli led Hamilton to a 2-2 record and the club is a win away from clinching a playoff spot. He went 89-of-118 (75.4 per cent) passing for 1,261 yards and seven touchdowns, including a stretch of three consecutive games with over 300 yards in the air.
