On November 19, 2013, the SSHF hosted the world premiere for our three vignettes celebrating the Saskatchewan Roughriders and their involvement with the Grey Cup as participants, hosts and champions. As Grey Cup 2013 unfolded it became quite apparent that our “new” videos were only historically correct up to Sunday, November 17, 2013, resulting in some significant post production work.
The updated vignettes, which were previously only visible at the Hall of Fame, can now be seen below. They provide the SSHF with a tremendous opportunity to showcase the Roughrider permanent collection and involve many of our inductees.
The SSHF is grateful for the financial support from the Community Initiatives Fund and Saskatchewan Lotteries which made the production of these vignettes possible.

It is no secret that we hold each one of our inductees in very high regard. This is likely due, at least in part to the fact that during the induction process, we are made very familiar with the inductees and their accomplishments. It has always been our intention to give you, our viewing audience the same incredible perspective of them that we are privileged enough to have. For the induction class of 2013, we took a huge step in that direction by producing a small video piece for each new member that we are posting to our website.
Included in each of these short but dynamic pieces is an insightful look at the life and accomplishments that each one of our new inductees has lived out along the way to finding a home in our Hall. Each video can be found on the individual inductee pages on our site www.sasksportshalloffame.com as well as via the YouTube links here.
Please feel free to visit our page, or better yet, our galleries and take in all the history and heritage for yourself. We look forward to welcoming you all in and sharing even more incredible information on the history of sport in Saskatchewan with you.
