B.C. Lions linebacker Solomon Elimimian named CFL's top defensive player

November 27, 2014 - 7:21 PM

VANCOUVER - B.C. Lions linebacker Solomon Elimimian is the CFL's top defensive player.

Elimimian was honoured Thursday at the CFL's awards banquet at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.

Elimimian captured the honour in voting conducted by the Football Reporters of Canada and nine CFL head coaches.

Elimimian had a season to remember, registering 143 defensive tackles and 151 total tackles — both CFL records — while adding five sacks for the Lions.

Linebacker Bear Woods of the Montreal Alouettes, the CFL's second-leading tackler with 89, was the award finalist.
