Brendan LaBatte cracked the offensive squad at guard, while defensive ends Charleston Hughes and Willie Jefferson, and halfback Ed Gainey were named to the all-star defence.

This is the sixth CFL all-star selection for LaBatte, who is in his 11th CFL season.

Hughes is a CFL all-star for the third season in a row. He led the CFL with 15 quarterback sacks in 2018.
