Dunlops: Ottawa

The Ottawa Sun's Earl McRae has added another Dunlop Award for sports writing to his collection.

An Ottawa Sun story by Elisabeth Johns says McRae won his 11th Dunlop for a June 2007 story titled "This Isn't How a Legend Should End."

It detailed J.I. Albrecht's "journey from his life as a (CFL) football star to his life at a Toronto nursing home, where he spent his last six months bedridden and in pain."

Sun editor-in-chief Mike Therien said McRae was able to "peel back the layers of a complicated" legend, the story says.

Jeff Morgan, a copy editor, picks up a Dunlop Unsung Hero Award.

The awards will be presented June 26 in Toronto.
