Lew Hayman Trophy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Lew Hayman Trophy is a Canadian Football League trophy, awarded to the outstanding Canadian player in the East Division. Each team in the East Division nominates a player, from which the winner is chosen. Either the winner of the Hayman trophy or the Dr. Beattie Martin Trophy will also win the Canadian Football League Most Outstanding Canadian award.

As part of the failed American expansion in 1995, the Hayman trophy was awarded to the Martin Trophy runner-up, as the South Division teams (to which other East Division titles were assigned to that year) did not have an import quota.

The trophy is named after Lew Hayman, former coach and general manager of the Toronto Argonauts and the Montreal Alouettes, as well as a past CFL president.
