The Eddie James Memorial Trophy is a Canadian Football League trophy, awarded to the leading rusher in the West Division. Unlike other CFL trophies, there is no equivalent for the East Division.
The award is named after Eddie James, a former running back for the then Regina Roughriders in the 1930s. In 1995, as part of the failed American expansion, the James trophy was awarded to the leading rusher in the North Division.
