If you set a Grey Cup record for the longest reception in the 100+ year history of the game, there's a good chance you're going to haul in MVP honors assuming your team wins the game.

That's exactly how DeVier Posey's night went as the former Buckeye wide receiver took home the Most Valuable Player award following his Toronto Argonauts' 27-24 victory over the Calgary Stampeders in the CFL championship game in Ottawa.

Posey caught seven passes for 175 yards and one touchdown, including the aforementioned 100-yard reception that goes in the books as the longest ever in Grey Cup history.

“If y'all can't tell by our record, we're fighters,” Posey said as he accepted the award after the game. “We love each other and this ain't mine, man. I'm doing this for my boys, man. I love these dudes.”

Posey is in his second season as an Argonaut after spending three seasons with the NFL's Houston Texans. He had 52 receptions for 744 yards and 7 touchdowns for Toronto in the regular season.
