Former Aggie Anthony Calvillo Nominted For CFL Player of the Year Honor For Third Straight Time



Nov. 3, 2004

TORONTO, Canada - Another year, another outstanding player award nomination for former Utah State quarterback Anthony Calvillo. The Montreal Alouettes quarterback was named the Canadian Football League's East Division nominee for the award Tuesday for the third straight year. He was a finalist to Winnipeg receiver Milt Stegall in 2002 before winning it last year over B.C. Lions quarterback Dave Dickenson.

"What I take pride in is my dedication to the game and how I prepare myself," Calvillo said. "What I'm proud of most is my consistency the last three years with this club, and I think a lot of that has to do with the team we have.

"If we didn't have the players we have and not done what we've done, I wouldn't be here," he added. "I think it all comes from having a winning team."

Calvillo, 32, led the CFL in pass attempts (690), completions (431) and yards (6,041) and was tied for second in touchdown tosses (31) as Montreal posted a league-best 14-4 record. The 11-year veteran won the honor last year after throwing for a league-best 5,891 yards.

Calvillo lettered at Utah State in 1992 and 1993 and led the Aggies to the 1993 Las Vegas Bowl Championship. In his two-year career in Logan, he threw for 5,642 yards, which ranks fifth on the school career passing list.
