The significance isn't lost upon William Stanback.
The Montreal Alouettes running back was named the East Division's nominee for the CFL's outstanding player award Thursday. Only two players at that position have won the honour since 1998.
Trouble is, the West Division nominee is Zach Collaros, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers' veteran quarterback. And since 1998, quarterbacks have claimed the award 15 times.
