Cory McCoy earns the accolade in week 2 of the BC Football Conference

The Okanagan Sun are undefeated so far this year, and defensive linesman Cory McCoy was an essential part in the Sun’s latest victory.

In a 21-16 win over the Valley Huskers on Aug. 10, McCoy led the Sun defense with eight tackles and two quarterback sacks. The powerful performance earned him the nod as BC Football Conference Defensive Player of the Week.

McCoy is a Kelowna alumni and at six-foot-four and 255 pounds has been a dominant force on the Sun in their first two wins.
