The BC Lions receiver Bryan Burnham and kicker Sergio Castillio have earned West Division All-Star selections.

Burnham adds to his growing list of 2019 accolades after earning the club’s nomination as Most Outstanding Player last week. The six-year vet enjoyed a career-best 100 receptions for 1,492 yards and 11 touchdowns on the year. One of just three CFL receivers to hit the 100-catch plateau, it was Bryan’s first time reaching the century mark while his receiving yards were second to only Hamilton’s Brandon Banks.

Castillo too enjoyed career numbers making 41 of his 45 field goal attempts in 2019 and setting the bar as the only CFL kicker with a success rate above 90 per cent. The first-year Lion was remarkably consistent throughout the year, but especially so in the second half of the season missing just two field goal attempts dating back to early September.
