Dogs Ready To Hit The Field

Ready to hit the turf of Griffiths Stadium in PotashCorp Park for spring camp, the University of Saskatchewan Huskie football team will get its first chance to test skills for the 2014 season.

Spring camp kicks off early Thursday morning with the 14th 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. 2013 Grey Cup champion quarterback Darian Durant and receiver Geroy Simon from the Saskatchewan Roughriders will speak. 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 p.m. in the first practice of the weekend. They suit up again Friday at 5:30 p.m., 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Saturday and finally 10:30 a.m. Sunday. All fans, supporters, alumni, family and friends are invited to attend any of the practices during the camp. The camp will feature around 90 returning Huskies, new recruits and walk-on players
