Montreal, December 15, 2021 – The Canadian Football League announced on Wednesday its 2021 CFL All-Stars, on which three players from the Montreal Alouettes were selected, as running back William Stanback and receivers Eugene Lewis and Jake Wieneke received the nod.

William Stanback – Running back (2nd selection)
CFL All Star: 2019, 2021

Stanback received his second nomination in 2021, as he concluded the season atop many categories, including rushing yards as his 1,176 yards put him more than 300 yards ahead of his closest competitor, who played one more game than him. His 1,290 yards from scrimmage are also best in the CFL, as are his 193 carries, his 6.1-yard average per carry and his six games with more than 100 rushing yards.

The 28-year-old maintained his level of play throughout the season, even if three different starting quarterbacks threw him passes. He also threw a 35-yard pass on a trick play.

Jake Winieke – Wide Receiver (1st selection)
