REGINA -- Talk to anyone born within the borders of Saskatchewan and they’ll tell you how much of an honour it would be to suit up for the Roughriders.
For that reason – among several others – Saskatoon native Scott McHenry and Regina native Patrick Neufeld couldn’t be happier to see their contracts extended by the Riders.
“It’s an honour to be able to say that I’m going to be a Saskatchewan Roughrider for another two years,” said McHenry.
“Growing up playing football in Saskatoon and then playing for the (University of Saskatchewan) Huskies and now the Riders and knowing they have me in their plans…it’s an honour,” he added.
As of now, the Roughriders have 12 players from universities inside Saskatchewan – six from the University of Regina and six from the University of Saskatchewan.
They also currently feature four players from provincial junior teams.
