Winnipeg Blue Bombers running back Andrew Harris became the first player ever to be named Most Outstanding Player and Most Outstanding Canadian, which happened after the Blue Bombers coasted to a 33-12 win in the 107th Grey Cup in Calgary on Sunday.

Harris, a 32-year-old in his 10th season, gained 134 rushing yards and a touchdown on 18 carries, as well as 35 yards and a touchdown on five catches. The Winnipeg native posted career highs this season in yards per rush (6.1), yards per game (86.3) and total scrimmage yards (1909).

The Blue Bombers’ championship drought ended after 29 years with Sunday’s win over the Tiger-Cats, a game in which Winnipeg led from start to finish.
