Quarterbacks Bo Levi Mitchell of the Calgary Stampeders and Jeremiah Masoli of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats are the finalists for the CFL's outstanding player award.
Mitchell, who won the award in 2016, threw a CFL-high 35 touchdown passes this season. The native of Katy, Texas, helped Calgary (13-5) finish atop the West Division standings.
Masoli finished second among CFL passers with 5,209 yards in his first full season as Hamilton's starter. He helped the Ticats (8-10) earn second in the East Division with a league-high 12 300-yard passing contests.

The other award finalists include: linebackers Adam Bighill of Winnipeg and Larry Dean of Hamilton (defensive player); running back Andrew Harris of Winnipeg and Ottawa receiver Brad Sinopoli (top Canadian); tackle Stanley Bryant of Winnipeg and guard Brandon Revenberg of Hamilton (top lineman); kickers Ty Long of B.C. and Ottawa's Lewis Ward (special teams); Ward and Saskatchewan receiver Jordan Williams-Lambert (rookie); and Saskatchewans Chris Jones and Ottawas Rick Campbell (coach of the year).

The CFL will honour its top individual performers Nov. 22 in Edmonton.

Only change I would make is Sinopoli for top Cdn.  When you lead the league in catches (by over 20) breaking a Canadian Record...you win that award.  Harris had an exceptional year by any calculation...but when you break a single season record of one of the best receivers in the history of the league...you get that award.

I think that's the only award up for debate, IMO the rest are slam dunks....

Agreed 100% Harris had another great season, but in my mind you can't nominate the guy that set a Canadian record and then tell him that fact got passed over and he doesn't get selected as winner the of Top Canadian Award.

Harris won last year, Sinopoli's turn to win again this year.  They're both great.

I think the deciding factor is A. Harris probably represents about 30% of the Bomber offense. He also was the rushing leader and very active in the passing game. IMO that edges out Sinopoli.
