Saskatchewan football fans will have their focus set on the Roughriders this weekend.
That’s the way it should be. Fans watch closely as the Green and White try to become the first cross over team to win a Grey Cup.
Another football team in Saskatchewan is in pursuit of a historic milestone as well.
No team has ever won four consecutive Canadian Bowl titles in the 110 years of Canadian Junior Football.
The Saskatoon Hilltops go for a four-peat this weekend when they visit Windsor for the national title on Saturday.
Many players have made the transition from one of Saskatchewan’s great football teams to another.
Former Hilltop players Ted Dushinski, Gord Barwell, Wayne and Cliff Shaw and Ron Atchison were part of the first Roughrider team to win a Grey Cup in 1966.
Decorated Canadian Bowl champion Graig Newman was part of the 2013 Grey Cup championship Roughrider team.
Football fans in Saskatchewan hope to witness two historic moments in 2017.
