The Edmonton Eskimos 47th annual dinner not only honoured players past and present, but the future generation of fooball stars as well.

Twenty-two-year-old Edmontonian Steven Giang received the Edmonton Sun Wes Montgomery memorial award, which recognizes achievement in junior football as well as academics.

"We're here this evening to honour Wes Montgomery, who passed away in 2005," said Sun publisher John Caputo. "He was a great Eskimos supporter. He enjoyed life and loved sports, especially football."
