University of Saskatchewan Huskie football receiver Kit Hillis and defensive tackle David Rybinski were named CIS All-Canadians Wednesday at an awards banquet hosted in Toronto.
Hillis and Rybinski were given the nod as CIS First Team All-Canadians. It is the
first time either have been honoured at the CIS level. The Huskies have had 82
All-Canadians since 1969.
“We are proud of what Kit and David have accomplished in 2012,” said Huskie head coach Brian Towriss. “Both are very deserving of every accolade.”
Rybinski tallied 15
tackles and 4.5 sacks for a loss of 32 yards in 2012, while Wide receiver
Hillis had an outstanding season for the green and white to lead the Canada
West in receiving. The Business student recorded 57 receptions for 797 yards
and eight touchdowns in six games. He set a Huskie season benchmark for
receptions in a single game.
The McMaster Marauders will get a chance to defend their Vanier Cup title on Friday night when they battle the Laval Rouge et Or in a rematch of last year’s CIS final. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. at Rogers Centre, live on TSN and RDS. Pre-game coverage on TSN starts at 7 p.m.
