Calgary Stampeders running back Jon Cornish, Toronto Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray and Saskatchewan Roughriders defensive back Dwight Anderson are among the notable CFL players honoured by their peers in the 2013 CFL on TSN Player Poll.
 
With one week left in the regular season, Cornish - voted The Toughest Player To Bring Down - is a leading candidate for the CFL's Most Outstanding Player award. He has rushed for 1,799 yards and could break Willie Burden's club record for rushing yards in a single season with a 98-yard performance against the B.C. Lions on Friday Night Football.

Ray becomes just the second two-category winner in the history of the CFL ON TSN Player Poll. He was chosen by peers as the CFL's best clutch performer and most accurate passer with more than 50 per cent of the total vote in both categories, including a near-unanimous selection as the league's most accurate quarterback.
 
The lone repeat winner from last year is Anderson, who was a near-unanimous selection as the league's best trash-talker. Anderson has been awarded the distinction in all four years of the CFL ON TSN Player Poll.
 
TSN's Dave Naylor joins the CFL on TSN panel to analyze the results of the poll alongside host Dave Randorf and analysts Chris Schultz, Milt Stegall, and Jock Climie during the CFL ON TSN pre-game show on Saturday at 1:30pm et on TSN.
 
More than half of the league participated in the CFL on TSN Player Poll as players representing all eight CFL teams cast ballots.
