Andrew Harris, who was able to hang out with members of the Jets previously, had one of the biggest games of his career. The 32-year-old native of Winnipeg rushed for 134 yards and a touchdown on 18 rushes while adding another score and 35 yards while catching five passes.
That effort earned him Most Valuable Player and Most Valuable Canadian honours, becoming the first-ever player to receive bother honours.
The Bombers beat the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 33-12 to hoist the trophy.
