MONTREAL - Dominique Dorsey of the Toronto Argonauts is the CFL's top special-teams player.
Dorsey captured the John Agro trophy as the league's top special-teams performer Thursday night at the CFL's awards banquet. Calgary Stampeders kicker Sandro DeAngelis was the finalist.
Voting for the award was conducted by the Football Reporters of Canada as well as the eight CFL head coaches.
The five-foot-seven, 173-pound Dorsey was a bright spot for a Toronto team that struggled for much of the season, finishing third in the East Division standings with a 4-14 record. Despite missing the Argos final five regular-season games due to injury, Dorsey posted a CFL-high 2,892 all-purpose yards.
Dorsey finished second overall in kickoff returns (50 for 1,257 yards, one TD) and missed field goal returns (five for 187 yards) and third in punt returns (63 for 752 yards, one TD).
DeAngelis, who won this award in 2006, was the CFL's scoring leader this season with 217 points. He made 50-of-58 field goals - both league highs.
