Another post-season honour for Jon Cornish.

The Calgary Stampeders running back, already a finalist for the CFL's outstanding player and Canadian awards, was named to the CFL Players' Association all-star team Thursday.

Cornish, 29, of New Westminster, B.C., led the CFL in rushing with 1,813 yards, which is the most ever in a season by a Canadian player. Kory Sheets of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, who finished second with 1,598 yards, was also named to the all-star squad.

Voting for the squad was conducted by CFL players.

Henry Burris of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, the CFL's passing leader, was named the team's quarterback. The offensive line consists of tackles Jovan Oliafoye of the B.C. Lions and Josh Bourke of the Montreal Alouettes and guards Chris Van Zeyl of the Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton's Peter Dyakowski. Ticats veteran Marwan Hage was named the centre.

Fred Stamps of the Edmonton Eskimos and Montreal's S.J. Green are the slotbacks while Calgary's Maurice Price and Saskatchewan's Chris Getzlaf are the wide receivers.

Calgary's Jon Hufnagel was named the all-star head coach while Stampeders Rob Maver and Rene Paredes are the punter and kicker, respectively. Paredes made 54-of-57 field goals this season (league-record 94.7 per cent) and earlier this year hit a league-record 39 straight field goals.

Defensively, Saskatchewan's Alex Hall and Calgary's Charleston Hughes line up at end while Bryant Turner of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Toronto's Khalif Mitchell are the tackles.

Montreal's Chip Cox, a finalist for the CFL's outstanding defensive player award, anchors a linebacking corps that includes Winnipeg's Henoc Muamba (finalist, top Canadian) and Toronto's Marcus Ball.

The secondary consists of cornerbacks Dante Marsh of the B.C. Lions and Montreal's Geoff Tisdale while the defensive halfbacks are Korey Banks of the Lions and Saskatchewan's Craig Butler. Kyries Hebert of the Alouettes is at safety.
