Here’s the blurb from CFL.ca:
The reigning Most Outstanding Canadian, Andrew Harris is the West Division nominee for the second year in a row. Harris led the league in rushing and set a career-high with 1,390 rushing yards. The Winnipeg, Manitoba native also recorded 58 receptions for 451 yards and scored 11 touchdowns on the season.
The East Division nominee is REDBLACKS receiver Brad Sinopoli. The Peterborough, Ontario native set a CFL record when he notched 116 receptions, a new Canadian record surpassing Ben Cahoon (112). Sinopoli finished third in receiving yards in the CFL with 1,376 and had 36 second down conversion catches. This marks back-to-back seasons that both Harris and Sinopoli are nominated for the award.
2 outstanding candidates, both fully deserving
This will be the closest race there is.
BTW, Ottawa, you’re welcome
Very, very true!
What were the Stampeders thinking anyway giving Brad Sinopoli just bit time on the field? Sinopoli is right up there with Dave Sapunjis and Andy Fantuz when it comes to the most dynamic homegrown receivers of the last quarter century.
It’s true, Calgary didn’t give Sinopoli a lot of playing time. The reasons are many
1)- He was a young player and not that experienced at the time
2)- Calgary had the ratio balance the way they wanted and there wasn’t a place to start him.
3)- Huff was smart enough to know that Sinopoli would look for opportunities closer to home once he became a FA so why make that investment?
