THE YUILL AWARD
Beginning in 1988, the Captain of the St. Andrew's College Saints is honoured to be presented with The Yuill Award given by a great supporter of St. Andrew's, Mr. W.H. (Bill) Yuill of Medicine Hat Alberta. Mr. Yuill was Captain of the Saints in 1956, following in the footsteps of his father, J.H. (Hop) Yuill, who was Captain of the Saints in 1917.
The Yuills are the only father and son combination to serve as Captain of the hockey team in its over 110 year history.
The presentation is made annually at the Friday Luncheon for the teams participating in the annual MacPherson Hockey Tournament - which was established in 1984.
In 2008, Mr. Yuill presented a special Yuill Award to Jim Herder '64 in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the MacPherson Tournament over its first twenty-five years.
