TORONTO - The B.C. Lions led all CFL clubs with 12 players named to the division all-star team on Thursday.

Quarterback Travis Lulay took the nod at quarterback for the West Division while fellow outstanding player nominee Anthony Calvillo of Montreal was the East Division all-star at the position.

On offence, Lulay was joined by Geroy Simon, Angus Reid, Ben Archibald and Jovan Olafioye. Kicker Paul McCallum was named to the special-teams list.

The Lions picked up half of the 12 spots on defence. Aaron Hunt, who earned his fifth division all-star nod, was joined by Keron Williams, Khalif Mitchell, Solomon Elimimian, Dante Marsh and Korey Banks.

The Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Eskimos both had six players named to the West list while the Saskatchewan Roughriders had three selections.

In the East, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers led the way with eight selections. Montreal and Toronto had seven picks apiece and Hamilton had five.

The division all-stars were selected in a vote of Football Reporters of Canada members, CFL head coaches and fans from across the country. The league all-stars will be named Wednesday.

B.C. and Winnipeg earned home playoff dates by finishing first in their respective divisions. Hamilton visits Montreal in the East semifinal this Sunday while Edmonton hosts Calgary in the West semifinal.

The division finals are on tap Nov. 20 and the Grey Cup will be played in Vancouver on Nov. 27.
