Player Awards



Ben Archibald – T – Calgary Stampeders

Calgary Stampeders left tackle Ben Archibald is the 2010 CFL Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman. This is Archibald’s first time winning the award after being the runner-up for the honour in 2009. He beat out Marwan Hage of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in this year’s voting.

A stalwart on the offensive line, Archibald started all 18 regular-season games and the Western Final for Calgary this season.

He was a key component on an offensive line that paved the way for the league’s top most proficient running game and provided excellent protection at the all-important left tackle position for the league’s second-ranked passing attack. The Stamps led the league in rushing yards (2,618), rushing first downs (162) and allowed the second-fewest sacks (30).

"This means a lot to me on an individual level to be recognized for your efforts," he said. "But also as a team to have one of these to represent your team means a lot.''

Archibald, a three-year CFL veteran, has started 36 consecutive games at tackles for Calgary. He was a West Division all-star and CFL all-star in each of the past two seasons.

This is just the second time a Stamps player has been named the CFL’s most outstanding offensive lineman as Fred Childress won the award in 1998.
