HUSKIE FOOTBALL SQUAD HITS FIELD FOR SPRING CAMP
Huskie football returns to the turf in Griffiths Stadium in PotashCorp Park as the University of Saskatchewan squad hits the field for its 2016 spring camp.
Spring camp kicks off early Thursday morning with the 16th annual Dogs Breakfast at Prairieland Park and wraps up Sunday with the Green and White scrimmage.
The Dogs Breakfast helps raise scholarship funds for the team. Special guests Rod Smith, Jock Clime and Duane Forde from the CFL on TSN will host a panel at the breakfast. Joining the panel members will be Saskatchewan Roughriders head coach and general manager Chris Jones and former Rider quarterback Kerry Joseph. At the event, Huskie head coach Brian Towriss will make an official announcement of new recruits to the team.
The players will then hit the field that night at 6:00 p.m. in the first practice of the weekend. They suit up again Friday at 5:45 p.m., 10:30 a.m. and 3:45 p.m. Saturday and finally 10:30 a.m. Sunday for the green and white scrimmage. All fans, supporters, alumni, family and friends are invited to attend any of the practices during the camp. The camp will feature more than 100 returning Huskies, new recruits and walk-on players.
