Four-time Super Bowl champion Ronnie Lott will be attending the University of Saskatoon Huskie football program’s fundraising breakfast event later this year on April 30th.
This is the 15 annual event of its kind and is designed to raise the money for the school’s football scholarship program, which has been said by their coach Brian Towriss to be one of the most important factors of the team’s competition success.
The ten-time Pro Bowl player was drafted in the first round of the 1981 by the San Francisco 49ers, and later on played with other teams including the Los Angeles Raiders and New York Jets. He was signed on with and supposed to be on the Kansas City Chiefs but had to retire in 1995 instead due to his sports related injuries.
In 2000 Lott was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and spent a few years working as a sports analyst for Fox NFL Sunday after his retirement. In addition to that, he worked on the NFL’s game coverage throughout the season in 1998 and currently is on the Board of Selectors for the Jefferson Awards for Public Service. Lott currently works on the PAC-12 television network on a show called PAC-12 Playbook.
Lott will be one of five NFL star speakers at the Huskies fundraiser in April, and hopes to help the sport of football gain more popularity in the Canada region. The tickets to attend the breakfast event at the University of Saskatoon go for $125 a ticket and $1,000 for a table.
