Pringle, Withycombe, Wright win CFL awards

November 02, 1995|By Gary Lambrecht

Mike Pringle, Mike Withycombe and Chris Wright, who played crucial roles in Baltimore's 15-3 regular season, each was named a Most Outstanding Award winner in the Canadian Football League's Southern Division yesterday.

Pringle, the CFL's leading rusher for the second straight season, was voted the South's Most Outstanding Player after finishing with 1,791 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns.

Withycombe, a 30-year-old CFL rookie left guard, was voted the division's best offensive lineman. Withycombe's versatility figured heavily in the voting. He also played four games at left tackle and five games at center, because of injuries.

Wright, the Stallions' kick return specialist, was named Rookie of the Year in the South, after setting a league record for most return yards in a season (2,256) and most games with 100 yards in punt returns (five).

The league-wide award winners will be announced in two weeks.
