    The votes are in and @Cornish has been named Top Offensive and Top Canadian of the week awards!

    Congrats Jon, both extremely well deserved awards and certainly not the last of this season.

    Jon Cornish, Ricky Foley and Troy Stoudermire were named the Canadian Football League Players of the Week for Week 10 of the 2014 Canadian Football League season.

    The three players were chosen by a panel of judges including: former Canadian Football League players Matt Dunigan and Duane Forde of TSN, and Pierre Vercheval of RDS.

    Calgary Stampeders running back Jon Cornish was named the Offensive and Canadian Player of the Week for Week 10. Cornish rushed for a season-high 163 yards and added a touchdown in the Stampeders’ 28-13 win over the second place Eskimos. The former University of Kansas Jayhawk’s productive Labour Day performance also garnered him Canadian Player of the Week honours.

    Cornish, playing in only his third game of the season, showed off the form that led to him winning the league’s 2013 Most Outstanding Player award. He carried the ball 17 times and averaged 9.6 yards per carry in the annual clash between the two provincial rivals.

    Cornish also punched in a three-yard touchdown in the final quarter to give the Stampeders a two possession advantage.

    Did not take Corndog long to kick it into high gear! And again I owe it to Anthony Parker JR that was a hell of a catch!

    There's no question that Corndog's a motivated RB right now...;)

    Sixty yards back of the CFL's rushing leader, and closing fast.

    And after only 5 games played over the entire season! :D

    Outstanding achievement from an amazing talent...
