Lemar Durant’s trophy case got a little more crowded last week.

The Simon Fraser University Clan wide receiver was named to the Super Region Three first team all stars for his remarkable efforts this season.

The former Centennial Centaur hauled in 82 receptions for 1,227 yards and scored 16 touchdowns, the longest of which was for 73 yards.

He also tied the Great Northwest Athletic Conference record for more touchdowns in a game when he scored four on the road against Dixie State last month. He is the only GNAC player to be named to the Super Region Three first team. Nationally, Durant finished third overall in the NCAA in receiving yards per game, sixth in receptions per game, third in total receiving yards and 14th in scoring.

This season the Coquitlam athlete was named to the GNAC All-Conference first team and division Newcomer-of-the-year. He was also Simon Fraser’s most valuable player for the season.
