Cornish up for two CFL awards

New Westminster’s Jon Cornish will be going to the Grey Cup, or at least to its awards ceremony, where he’ll not only be up for top Canadian honours but best player as well.

The CFL announced Wednesday that Cornish, a graduate of St. Thomas More Collegiate, has been voted as the West finalist in not only the most outstanding Canadian category, but the most outstanding player as well.

Cornish will be up against Toronto receiver/kick returner Chad Owen for the top award, and Montreal Alouettes linebacker Shea Emry, a native of Richmond.

Cornish broke a 56-year-old CFL record for Canadians by leading the league in rushing with 1,437 yards this season.

The CFL will hand out its awards in Toronto on Nov. 22.
