Edmonton Eskimos quarterback Mike Reilly has been named the most valuable player of the 103rd Grey Cup.

Reilly completed 21-of-35 pass attempts for 269 years, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Edmonton's 26-20 win over the Ottawa Redblacks in Sunday's CFL championship game.

He also connected with Akeem Shavers for a two-point convert on the game-winning touchdown.

Reilly also led the Eskimos in rushing with 66 yards.

Chambers receives Canadian honour

Eskimos wide receiver Shamawd Chambers has been named the Most Outstanding Canadian of the 103rd Grey Cup.

Chambers had 49 receiving yards, including a 32-yard reception to help set up a touchdown, as the Eskimos beat the Ottawa Redblacks 26-20 in the CFL championship game.

Chambers, a Toronto native, was selected sixth overall by Edmonton in the 2012 CFL draft after starring for the Wilfred Laurier Golden Hawks in college.
