Alouettes/Proulx and Flory Best in the East: Proulx is Rookie of the Year and Flory is Named Top Lineman

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 9, 2005) - The Canadian Football League announced today the 2005 Rogers Most Outstanding Player Awards for each division and two Alouettes were honoured:

MOST OUTSTANDING ROOKIE: MATTHIEU PROULX (1st nomination)

The pleasant surprise of the 2005 edition of the Alouettes has been without a doubt Matthieu Proulx. He has had an exceptional season, blocking two punts including one that led to a touchdown. Proulx leads the Alouettes with 12 special teams tackles and has played frequently on defence, making seven tackles and one interception. He is probably the Alouettes' most promising rising star.

West Division nomination: GAVIN WALLS (WPG)

MOST OUTSTANDING LINEMAN: SCOTT FLORY (2nd nomination)

The 2003 East Division Most Outstanding Lineman, Scott Flory stands an excellent chance of winning the CFL title this year. Montreal's offensive line provided for a remarkable CFL first: four receivers and a running back all over the 1000 yard mark in a season. Flory was CFL All-Star in 2002 and 2003, and an East Division All-Star in 2002, 2003 and 2004.

West Division nomination: GENE MAKOWSKY (SSK)

The winners in each category will be announced at the Rogers CFL Player Awards in Vancouver, BC on Thursday, November 24, 2005.
