MONTREAL -- Montreal Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo was selected the CFL's outstanding player for the second time in six seasons Thursday.

Calvillo, the former Utah State star who also won the 2003 award, threw a CFL-high 43 touchdown passes this season and led the Alouettes to the Grey Cup on Sunday against the Calgary Stampeders. Calgary quarterback Henry Burris was the other finalist.

Edmonton slotback Kamau Peterson (top Canadian) also was honored Thursday along with Montreal guard Scott Flory (lineman), British Columbia defensive end Cameron Wake (defensive player), Toronto returner Dominique Dorsey (special teams) and Saskatchewan slotback Weston Dressler (rookie).
