Builder (1986)


Ed Henick was on e of the original members of the Saskatoon Hilltops playing in the 1947 and 1948 seasons. In 1948 the club took part in the Western Junior final but lost out to Vancouver. He served as an assistant coach in 1950 and was the club's president in 1963 and 1964. All the while continuing to work for the Hilltops, Henick served two terms as president of Football Saskatchewan in 1973 and 1974 and it's secretary-treasurer from 1975 to the present. He also served two terms as president of the Prairie Junior Football league.

Ed was the main force behind the formation and success of the Kinsmen touch and the minor tackle football leagues in Saskatoon. He has remained a director of the Hilltops for many seasons and at game time at the Hilltops home games he can be seen in the ticket booth selling game tickets. Because his work does not finish until the paper work is done, Ed rarely sees the first half of the game.

In 1981, Ed was selected the Kinsmen Sportsman of the Year. The following year, the Hilltops honoured him with a life membership.
