Brandon Banks was named the Most Outstanding Player leading the three-down circuit with 112 receptions for 1,550 yards and 13 touchdowns in Condell’s offence. Banks was one of four CFL all-stars on Condell’s offence.

Bralon Addison had a breakout season with 95 catches for 1,236 yards and seven touchdowns. Offensive linemen Brandon Revenberg and Chris Van Zeyl had standout season, the latter claimed the Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman award.

Condell was a key coaching piece with Orlondo Steinauer leading the way as the Ticats set a franchise record with 15 wins in the regular season.
