5 members of Winnipeg Blue Bombers named to CFLPA All-Star Team

Five players on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers have been voted to the CFL Players’ Association All-Star Team.

The only member of the Bombers’ offence who was recognized was offensive lineman Stanley Bryant who was chosen an all-star at the tackle position.

Three more players on defence received the honour.

Willie Jefferson is an all-star at defensive end, Adam Bighill is the all-star middle linebacker and Winston Rose is an all-star at cornerback. Mike Miller was named the all-star on special teams.

With his positive drug test earlier this season, Andrew Harris was passed over for the all-star running back nod, despite leading the league in rushing. The Montreal Alouettes’ William Stanback was voted the all-star at running back instead.
