A couple of Ticats have been nominated for CFL Player of the Year awards.
Receiver Andy Fantuz is up against Calgary running back Jerrome Messam for the Most Outstanding Canadian award.
Return man Brandon Banks has been nominated for Most Outstanding Special Teams Player along with Winnipeg kicker Justin Medlock.
Fantuz broke the Tiger-Cats’ record for receptions in a season with 101 catches for 1,059 yards and five touchdowns.
He is also the first Canadian receiver to reach 100 receptions in a season since Kamau Peterson and Ben Cahoon in 2008.
Messam led the CFL with 1,198 rushing yards.
Banks, who won the special teams award last year, recorded 2,082 total kick return yards and had three return TDs in 2016.
Medlock, a former Ticat, broke the league record by kicking 60 field goals with the Ble Bombers this season.
That was one better than Dave Rideway’s record in 1990.
