The Blue Bombers didn’t just get a new coach on Wednesday, but a new all-star too, as linebacker Henoc Muamba was named to the 2013 CFL all-star team.
Muamba, who is entering free agency, was the lone Bomber picked for this year’s honour, which was selected by 50 voters from the Football Reporters of Canada and head coaches of the CFL.
One former Bomber, defensive end Alex Hall, was also named to the all-star team. Hall was traded to the Saskatchewan Roughriders late in the season for their Grey Cup push.
The other all-star selections included, from the Toronto Argonauts, pivot Ricky Ray, centre Jeff Keeping, defensive tackle Khalif Mitchell, guard Chris Van Zeyl and cornerback Patrick Watkins.
From the Calgary Stampeders, kicker Rene Paredes, punter Rob Maver, special teams phenom Larry Taylor, defensive end Charleston Hughes, offensive tackle Stanley Bryant, running back Jon Cornish and receiver Marquay McDaniel made the all-star cut.
The Roughriders sent Hall, receiver Weston Dressler, running back Kory Sheets, guard Brendon LaBatte and safety Tyron Brackenridge to the all-star team. The B.C. Lions were represented by defensive back Ryan Phillips and linebacker Adam Bighill.
The Montreal Alouettes all-stars included linebacker Chip Cox cornerback Geoff Tisdale, receiver S.J. Green and defensive back Jerald Brown.
The Edmonton Eskimos had two all-stars, defensive tackle Almondo Sewell and receiver Fred Stamps, and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats had none.
