Award Nominees

TORONTO -- Awards season has arrived as the Canadian Football League announced Thursday the team winners for the 2015 Shaw CFL Awards.

The players were selected by voting members of the Football Reporters of Canada (FRC) and CFL head coaches.

In this first ballot, FRC representatives from each CFL city plus the respective head coach submitted votes for the six categories. Voters were asked to select players from their local CFL club who, through on-field performance excellence, best represent the awards' titles - Most Outstanding Player, Most Outstanding Canadian Player, Most Outstanding Defensive Player, Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman, Most Outstanding Rookie, and Most Outstanding Special Teams Player.

  • means unanimous.

Along similar lines, player poll results.

Most Underrated: Brad Sinopoli, WR, Ottawa REDBLACKS (6%)
Most Accurate Passer: Henry Burris, QB, Ottawa REDBLACKS (28%)

I think being underrated is going to cease to be a "problem" for Sinopoli in short order.
