CFL's Most Outstanding Player Award

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Most Outstanding Player Award is annually awarded to the best player in the Canadian Football League. The two nominees for the award are the Terry Evanshen Trophy winner from the East Division, and the Jeff Nicklin Memorial Trophy winner from the West Division. The winner of the award is chosen by the Football Reporters of Canada.[1]

The award was created in 1953 as the Schenley Award, named after Schenley Distillers Corporation, to honour the most outstanding player in Canadian Rugby Union, the fore-runner of the CFL; Schenley ended its sponsorship of the awards in 1988.[1]
