Knowlton Wins Most Outstanding Defensive Player

A season that ended in disappointment for the Tiger-Cats and their fans just got a little less gloomy as Markeith Knowlton has been named the 2010 CFL's Most Outstanding Defensive Player.

I won't go into a long soliloquy about how great Knowlton is. Everyone who reads this blog knows how much I admire Knowlton. Numerous times I have referred to him as the best defensive player in the CFL; tonight he was officially bestowed the title.

Good on you, Markeith.

The Tiger-Cats were shut out in the other three awards they were nominated for: Marcus Thigpen lost out on Most Outstanding Rookie to BC Lion Linebacker Solomon Elimimian; Dave Stala was beaten by Saskatchewan Receiver Andy Fantuz for Most Outstanding Canadian; and Marwan Hage, somewhat surprisingly, lost the award for Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman to Calgary's Ben Archibald. The other award winners were Chad Owens for Most Outstanding Special Teams Player and Henry Burris, who was finally given his due by being named Most Outstanding Player.

Congratulations to all the award winners, and another big hand for Markeith Knowlton.
