The second all-time leading rusher for the Saskatchewan Roughriders and a former team Chairman who served five seasons on the Board of Directors will make up the induction class at the 2017 Rider Plaza of Honour ceremony at Mosaic Stadium in September.
Rider greats Wes Cates and Roger Brandvold are those two men. Cates couldn't attend Tuesday's news conference but former teammate Gene Makowsky spoke on his behalf and said the Columbus product was a great Roughrider who was a class individual that was calming in the huddle. Meanwhile, Brandvold says among his highlights is the 2013 Grey Cup game in Regina. He says he knew we were going to win that game when the whole team skipped individual introductions and ran out as a team. This year's Plaza of Honour induction celebration goes September 22nd at Mosaic Stadium.
