Wynn Named a CFL Top Performer of the Month for August

August 28, 2019 - Canadian Football League (CFL) - Hamilton Tiger-Cats News Release

The Canadian Football League announced Wednesday that Hamilton Tiger-Cats defensive tackle Dylan Wynn has been named a CFL Top Performer of the Month for August.

Wynn, 26, registered 10 defensive tackles and six quarterback sacks through four games in August, helping the Tiger-Cats to a 3-1 record over that span. He posted at least one defensive tackle and one sack in all four games, culminating with four defensive tackles and three sacks in Hamilton's 13-10 road win over BC last Saturday.

The 6-2, 283-pound native of Concord, California has started all 10 games for the Tiger-Cats this season and currently sits tied for second in the CFL with a career-high eight sacks, while adding 26 defensive tackles. His previous career high of six quarterback sacks was set in 2017.

Winnipeg's Willie Jefferson and Edmonton's Trevor Harris, first and second in voting, respectively, join Wynn as this month's CFL Top Performers. The three players were chosen by a panel of judges who independently send their selections to the CFL head office. The panel includes former Canadian Football League players Matt Dunigan and Duane Forde of TSN and Pierre Vercheval of RDS.
