MISSISSAUGA -  At each Grey Cup, the Canadian Football League Players’ Association has the honour of presenting the Tom Pate Award.  It is an award presented not just for one’s ability to perform on the field, but rather it is an award given to a player who also displays qualities that distinguish them from their peers off the field as well.

Each year, the current CFLPA membership across the league selects a teammate to be nominated for this award and represent their respective team.  The recipient embodies the qualities that distinguished Tom Pate; qualities that recognize a Player with outstanding sportsmanship, a Player who has made a contribution to his team as well as to his community and to his Association.  From the 9 Team nominees, one individual member is selected to receive the honour of being awarded the winner of the Tom Pate Award for that season.

It is with great honour, we announce the nominees for the 2017 Tom Pate Award as selected by their peers:

MONTREAL Stephen Adekolu - WR

TORONTO Jamal Campbell - OL
HAMILTON Courtney Stephen - DB
WINNIPEG Chris Randle - DB
