The W.J. Mouat Hawks and Rick Hansen Hurricanes hauled in the hardware last week at the B.C. High School Football Association’s awards banquet in Vancouver.

Maleek Irons, the W.J. Mouat Hawks’ record-breaking running back, was beaten out for the AAA player of the year award by Marcus Davis of the Mount Douglas Rams, but he claimed the offensive MVP award. Irons finished with 3,304 rushing yards in 12 games, eclipsing the old mark set by Reg Bradshaw of the Centennial Centaurs in 2001. He also scored 44 touchdowns.

Mouat offensive lineman Nick Westad and defensive lineman Sheriden Lawley were named AAA provincial all-stars.

The Hurricanes put three players on the AA all-star team – running back Jasnoor Dhaliwal, offensive lineman Harjot Ghuman and defensive lineman Arsh Gill.

Dhaliwal also won a Boston Pizza scholarship as one of nine academic players of the year, while Hansen tight end/linebacker Brandon Ho shared Grade 11 player of the year honours with Liam Wishart of Valleyview.
