Sack Master Steven
It’s a pace that the BCFC has not seen in recent memory. On Saturday night Okanagan Sun defensive lineman Steven Doege set a new BCFC sack record compiling two sacks against the Westshore Rebels.
Doege needed just a half sack to set the record and got it quickly. In the first quarter, Doege came flying through the line and took down Rebels quarterback Cat Todorovich for the record setting mark.
Later in the game Mark Black fell victim to another Doege sack who has now recorded 24.5 sacks in 24 career games. The Kelowna native made an immediate impact in his first career
game with a sack in Victoria against the Rebels on August 1, 2009. He would finish his rookie season with his best game of the year, compiling five sacks against the South Surrey Rams, a mark that tied a Canadian Junior Football League record for a single game.
He would total nine sacks that year and would be named the Sun Top Rookie and a BCFC All-Star. In 2010 the Rutland Senior Secondary grad would continue his torrent pace, racking up 11.5 sacks, setting a new Okanagan Sun record. He would record three multi sack games including three against the Kamloops Broncos on August 28th.
His efforts did not go unnoticed being named a CJFL All-Canadian, BCFC All-Star and BCFC Top Defensive Lineman.
In just his second season he would become the Sun all time sack leader. This season Doege has four sacks in four games. Perhaps the most impressive piece is the fact defences are double teaming him and he is still averaging a sack a game.
