WINNIPEG, MB. - The Canadian Football League announced Tuesday that returner Janarion Grant has been named a Shaw CFL Top Performer for his showing in last week's win against the Calgary Stampeders.

Grant returned two punts for touchdowns in the first half of Thursday night's game, covering 76 and 83 yards. He became just the eighth player in CFL history to accomplish that feat, and the first-ever Bomber. Grant finished the night with 306 combined kick-return yards - 222 on seven punt returns and 84 on four kickoff returns.

The Bombers are back at IG Field Thursday night as the B.C. Lions come to town for the club's first Intercept Cancer game.
