This season, the Huskies introduced Champions Plaza at Griffiths Stadium. There is a flag commemorating each of the Huskies three Vanier Cup Victories: 1990, 1996 and 1998. There is also one flag to recognize all of the Huskies Hardy Cup victories and one each for the Churchill and Uteck Bowl Victories from various seasons. Prior to each home game, the University of Saskatchewan Huskies Football Program honours its alumni.
During the ceremony on November 7 against the Regina Rams, Huskies fans joined the Alumni, stood on their feet and cheered wildly as the Alumni Flag was raised.
November 7 Honouree
The Huskie Football Alumni are proud to recognize and support the Huskie Athletes “Play for a Cure” initiative to raise awareness and funds for the Canadian Cancer Society.
Cancer has touched the lives of every Canadian and Play for a Cure is our athlete’s way of making a difference in our community. Twenty of our Huskie Football players and one Student Trainer from the team will have their heads shaved at the end of the season as part of the fundraising that Play for a Cure stands for.
The Alumni created a Play For A Cure Flag and recognized those student athletes making a difference in the Search for a Cure to Cancer.
We salute our Huskies for their commitment to finding a cure for Cancer signified by the Alumni Play for a Cure Flag.
