Congrats to him for winning the honours as Canada's athlete of the year for 2013. Not often a CFL player wins this, last time Russ Jackson according to the article.[url=http://www.calgaryherald.com/sports/football/calgary-stampeders/Cornish+wins+Marsh+Award+Canada/9265011/story.html]http://www.calgaryherald.com/sports/foo ... story.html[/url]

Terrific to see Jon Cornish win the Lou Marsh Trophy. A once in a lifetime accomplishment for a once in a lifetime season by the Canadian RB
And let's face it, a lot of people would say only a player in what is considered as the top league or circuit for the sport they play in should win it so it really is significant when a player in a league like the CFL wins it.
Good to see a CFL player win this, pity it is him. My last ounce of respect for him vanished that the play awards. If I saw him on the side of the road changing a flat, I would likely stop and deflate another one.
