HAMILTON - It was already shaping up to be a pretty good week for Henry Burris.

Tuesday it got a little better when his four-touchdown performance against the B.C. Lions earned him CFL offensive player of the week honours.

Burris and his surging Ticats are headed to Calgary later this week. Calgary, of course, is Burris’ most familiar CFL city having spent 10 years as a member of the Stamps and it remains home to the Burris family. With quality family time in short supply during a football season, Burris was very much looking forward to the trip. The award was just a nice little capper.

It would be easy to paint Burris as the CFL’s version of a fine wine aging to perfection, but that would actually be a disservice to Burris’ play of late, really since he arrived in Hamilton.

As good as he has been throughout his career, it is since he arrived in the Hammer that Burris has put up numbers that dwarf anything he has done previously in the CFL.
