At each home game, a Huskies season ticket holder is invited to plant the Huskies flag at center field during the Huskies team introductions. On November 14 against the Calgary Dinos, Ryan Lejbak had the hounour.
The Huskie Football Team recognizes the amazing support of the Huskies Football Fans and uses the Flag Plant as a way to thank a season ticker holder for their passion about the team. The fan waves the Huskies Flag while the team enters the field amongst fireworks, music and a packed stadium of standing, noisy fans.
“I was thrilled to be asked to plant the flag,” said Lejbak. “I was kind of nervous standing on the sidelined waiting for my cue. But once I was on the field, I had an amazing time. The fans were so loud that I couldn’t hear anything. I can only imagine what it is like for the opposition quarterback when the game starts. Thanks Huskies!”
Lejbak has been a season ticket holder since 2007 and is often seen at away games. He sits in Section 11.
