TORONTO – Winnipeg Blue Bomber Kicker Justin Medlock captured the CFL’s outstanding special-teams player award Thursday night.
The award was handed out at the league’s awards banquet at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
Kick-returner Brandon Banks of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, last year’s award winner, was the other finalist.
Medlock hit a CFL-record 60 field goals this season, his first with the Blue Bombers.
The 33-year-old was also the league’s scoring leader and made all 40 converts he attempted.
The Bombers improved to 11-7 to make the playoffs this season after posting a 5-13 mark in 2015.
