The two main lynchpins of the Okanagan Sun’s offensive line have been cited for their exceptional play throughout the B.C. Football Conference regular season.

Lineman Michele Vecchio and Quinn Horton were named this week to the BCFC’s 2016 all-star team on offense.

Vecchio, a graduate of Rutland Senior Secondary, was named to the team for the third consecutive year.

Despite battling a number of injuries this season, Vecchio didn’t miss a game and was instrumental in protecting his quarterbacks and opening up holes for Sun running backs.

Horton, who was drafted this spring by the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders, was in his first season with the Sun.

The 6-foot-4, 310-pound Winnipeg native and former SFU lineman used his size and skill to regularly shutdown onrushing defensive linemen.

Earlier in the week, four Sun players—Jonas Gering, Beck Fullerton, Layne Hull and Conor Richard—were named to the BCFC’s defensive all-star team.
