University of Regina receiver Ryan Schienbein was named the Canada West Offensive Player of the Week on Monday after his huge game helped lift the Rams to a big 51-13 Week 2 road win over Alberta in Edmonton.

Schienbein tied his career high with 13 receptions, ended up with 176 receiving yards, and set a new career high with three touchdown catches in the win.

“Ryan found a way to get himself open all night, and to be honest he’s really looking like the player he was two years ago when he was an all-star,” Rams head coach Steve Bryce said. “He’s having fun out there, he’s explosive once he gets the ball, he’s making people miss. He’s just really fun to watch right now.”

Through two weeks of the Canada West schedule, Schienbein has a conference-leading 19 receptions and also leads the league with four touchdown catches while his 215 receiving yards rank fifth.

Schienbein is also starting to make some serious headway on the U of R’s all-time receiving lists. He’s broken into the school’s top ten in career receptions (116), ranks seventh in career touchdown catches (15), and is closing in on Addison Richards for 10th all-time in receiving yards.

The Rams will be back in action at home this weekend with a game against UBC (1-1) at Mosaic Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
