The University of Calgary Dinos football team released their selections for the Canadian Interuniversity Sport football awards. Winners will be announced during the week of Nov. 20, in conjunction with the Vanier Cup in Saskatoon.

Freshman quarterback Dalin Tollestrup led the way for the Dinos, this time in nominations: one for the Hec Crighton Trophy as the most outstanding player in CIS football and the other for the Peter Gorman Trophy as the freshman of the year. Tollestrup won the Canada West offensive player of the week award for his recent 462-yard passing performance against the Simon Fraser University Clan.

The Dinos nominated linebacker Chase Moore for the most outstanding defensive player in CIS Football. Moore was named Canada West and CIS defensive player of the week for his game against the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds, Sun., Oct. 22. Moore recorded 57 solo tackles this season, good for third in Canada West.

The Dinos also nominated offensive and defensive lineman Dylan Steenbergen as the most outstanding lineman in CIS football. Steenbergen had 11 defensive solo tackles, before being moved to the offensive line during the last two games of the season, both victories.
