The CFL has announced six team award winners from each CFL club who will advance to the next stage of voting in the lead up to the 2021 CFL Awards.
The winners were selected by their respective CFL city’s voting members of the Football Reporters of Canada (FRC), as well as their team’s head coach.
Voters were tasked with selecting players whose on-field performances best represent the team’s Most Outstanding Player, Most Outstanding Canadian, Most Outstanding Defensive Player, Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman, Most Outstanding Rookie, and Most Outstanding Special Teams Player.
The East and West Division finalists for the 2021 CFL Awards will be announced on Thursday, November 25.
