WitP: Chad Owens, Travis LaBoy, Isaac Sopoaga

Chad Owens was named CFL Special Teams Player of the Week.
Argonauts WR/KR Chad Owens has claimed his third CFL Player of the Week award this season! The “Fly’n Hawaiian” has been named the CFL Special Teams Player of the Week for his inspired and game-changing effort against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Sunday afternoon at Rogers Centre.

Owens was unstoppable as a returner this weekend totalling 218 kick return yards and scoring his third kick return touchdown of the season. All told, he returned a single-game career-high eight (8) punts for 125 yards, 15.2 AVG, including an 80-yard punt return touchdown, with 4 kickoff returns for 93 yards, LG 30, 23.2 AVG.
Dave Allen of the Marin Independent Journal profiles Travis LaBoy.
LaBoy had the 49ers' lone sack in last week's loss at Seattle, but he managed just one assisted tackle Monday. With the game remaining close and the first-string defense asked to contain the Saints' dangerous offense time and again, LaBoy's contributions were limited. Still he spent a little less than half the game on the left corner rushing the passer.

"I play my role as a backup," said LaBoy, who rode a stationary bike on the sidelines when the 49ers had the ball throughout the first quarter. "I gotta keep warm - doing my Tour de France."
Isaac Sopoaga had 3 tackles in the game.

And Chawan Cut just happened to be at yesterday's 49ers game. Here's some of his photos.
