Hugh Vassos, Vice-chair of the Foundation, commented: “We are very fortunate to have Warren Moon as our speaker. Warren started his professional football career in Canada with the Edmonton Eskimos. He looks back to his time in the CFL with fond memories. Warren is excited to come to Saskatoon. Thanks to the Siemens Transportation Group, for once again sponsoring our Keynote Speaker.”
Ryan Lejbak, Chair of Dogs Breakfast 10, announced that tickets for the best football breakfast in Canada are now available by going on-line to http://www.huskiesfootballfoundation.com or by calling (306) 966-1021. Lejbak added: “We wanted to do something special for Dogs’ Breakfast 10. In addition to having one of the all-time great quarterbacks, we will announce the third recipient of the Huskies Football Ambassador Award and introduce some of the new recruits who will be a part of another Vanier Cup run for the Huskies.”
Todd Peterson, Chair of the Foundation, reminded football fans: “The Dogs Breakfast continues to raise much-needed football scholarship funds for the Huskies. The scholarships are essential if the Huskies are to field a championship calibre team. We congratulate head coach Brian Towriss for his 26 outstanding years as Huskies Head Coach and we want to assist him as he continues the winning tradition of Huskie Football.”
The event is one of the top football fundraisers in Canada that annually generates over $100,000 for football scholarships to the U of S. In total, over $700,000 has been raised since 2001. The Dogs’ Breakfast is one of Canada’s largest sports breakfasts with about 2,000 people in attendance.
Previous Dogs’ Breakfast speakers include: Brian Towriss, D.D. Lewis, Bobby Jurasin, Glen Suitor, Steve Mazurak, George Reed, Ron Lancaster, Matt Dunigan and Russ Jackson.
Huskies Head Coach Brian Towriss added, “The Dogs’ Breakfast is held on the weekend of the Huskie Football Spring Camp and many of the speakers stay in Saskatoon for a few extra days and help coach during the camp. In fact, some of the previous speakers return each season to lend their support to the team.”
