Hamilton, ON – The CFL Players’ Association (CFLPA) tonight announced the 2021 CFLPA All-Star team at a special event during this year’s Grey Cup festival in Hamilton.
CFLPA All-Star nominations are considered to be highly prestigious awards as they are voted on by peers – for the players and by the players.
The 2021 ballot was made available to all current CFLPA members on each team. There were more than 300 ballots cast and only players who had played nine or more games during this shortened season were eligible to be on a ballot.
Players could not vote for any player or coach who is a member of their own team and could only vote for other players they most closely study and compete directly against week in and week out. For example, wide receivers and slot backs were voted for by defensive backs.
In addition, all CFLPA members voted for one 2021 All-Star Head Coach and one Special Teams Player.
Congratulations to the 2021 CFLPA All-Star Team as voted on by the players:
