PLAYERS: Jon Cornish
Former Hawaii receiver Chad Owens was honored as the Canadian Football League's outstanding player Thursday night, three days before he leads the Toronto Argonauts against Calgary in the Grey Cup. The 30-year-old Owens led the CFL in receiving with 94 catches for 1,328 yards and six touchdowns, also topped the league in return yards with 2,510 and had a record 3,863 all-purpose yards. Owens edged Calgary running back Jon Cornish in voting conducted by the Football Reporters of Canada and the eight CFL coaches. Cornish became the first Canadian to lead the league in rushing since Orville Lee in 1988 with Ottawa, finishing with 1,457 yards to break Norm Kwong's 56-year-old record for Canadians. Cornish played at Kansas.
