I was wondering what are views on the possibilities across the nation for CIS Rookie this year? From the AUS it seems to me that running back Jordan Botel at Mount Allison must be in the consideration somewhere. He has made an impact right from game one, and was huge in both of Mount Allison's victories. He has twice been named AUS offensive player of the week, and ranks 4th in CIS rushing with more than 100 yard per game average. His game against Saint Marys last Saturday was truly outstanding (of course helped by a great performance by the offensive line). He is far ahead in the AUS rushing at this point in the season. So who else should be considered? Would love to hear about some of the other great first year players from other conferences (and other suggestions from the AUS).
