In front of Penner is Barry Moroz, play-by-play broadcaster on CFRY of the Terriers games, who was a head table guest.
Autograph seekers| Saskatchewan Avenue was lined with hundreds of people Tuesday afternoon as youngsters cheered the victorious Terriers and got autographs from players prior to the Terriers being treated to a steak dinner hosted by the city of Portage at the Portage Hotel. Here is a sample of the crowd that waited for the motorcade to stop near hotel.
