OTTAWA - Stanley Bryant of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers captured the CFL's top lineman award Thursday night.

Bryant received the honour at the CFL's awards banquet.

Centre Sean McEwen of the Toronto Argonauts was the finalist.

The six-foot-three, 297-pound McEwen, 24, is completing his second season with Toronto, which led the CFL in pass attempts (713) and completions (502) while finishing second in passing yards and net offence.
