Two former Saskatchewan Roughrider greats who played in the 2007 Grey Cup win were inducted into the CFL team's Plaza of Honour Friday night.
Offensive lineman Gene Makowsky and defensive back Eddie Davis were honoured at the annual Credit Union Centre dinner. Their names will also be added to the cairn outside Mosaic Stadium in Regina.
Makowsky said being inducted by the club is a humbling experience and a great one for his family.
"What a huge honour," said Makowsky at the dinner. "You get a chance to reflect a little bit on your career and how much this franchise and this province means to me and my family."
Makowsky played 17 seasons with the Riders before announcing his retirement in 2012. He played in 16 playoff games and four Grey Cups, winning the championship in 2007.
In 2011, he passed Rider legend Roger Aldag to become the leader for the most games played in Rider history with 284 games.
Eddie Davis said when he first found out he was going to be inducted he didn't believe it was real.
"The first thing that ran though my head was, you gotta be kidding me...you know you just get a ton of emotions flowing in at the same time," said Davis.
"I feel so flattered that they would think of me for this honour," said Davis. "Especially going in with Gene this year, we carried the Grey Cup in, in 2007, and so for us to come into the Plaza of Honour together is such a great experience."
Davis played 15 years in the CFL, his last nine with the Riders.
He was named CFL All-Star four times and West Division All-star five times. Davis won two Grey Cups, the other with the Calgary Stampeders in 1998.
The Plaza of Honour Dinner, which is presented by SaskTel, has inducted 117 people who have made major contributions to the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
