The busy football weekend in Saskatoon began Thursday morning with the 18th annual Dog’s Breakfast at Prairieland Park.
In the midst of the Huskie Football Foundation raising scholarship money for the U of S football program, and former N-F-L offensive lineman Tony Mandarich as the guest speaker, head coach Scott Flory introduced 39 recruits to the nearly two thousand supporters. Of the 39 recruits, 21 players are on offence and 18 on the defensive side of the ball. As well, 22 of the 39 players are from Saskatchewan…12 of those from Saskatoon. It’s Flory’s second season as sideline boss for the Huskies. He and his staff will put the recruits and veterans through Spring Camp paces this weekend, starting at 6 tonight at Griffiths Stadium. The camp ends with Sunday’s Green and White scrimmage at 10-30 a.m.
In addition, the four-time defending Canadian Bowl-champion Saskatoon Hilltops hold their Spring Camp this weekend, starting tomorrow night at their new clubhouse and winding up Sunday afternoon with the Blue and Gold scrimmage at 1:30 at Saskatoon Minor Football Field.
