Considered by many in Riderville to be Roughrider Royalty, Gene Makowsky anchored the Saskatchewan Roughrider offensive line for 17 seasons.

Makowsky had an all-star career and is one of the CFL’s all-time best to play the game. Originally a second round (23rd overall) pick in the 1995 CFL College Draft, Makowsky played in 284 regular season games and is the Roughrider all-time leader of games played. Makowsky also saw action in 16 playoff games and four Grey Cups, earning a championship ring in 2007.

Makowsky, a five time CFL All-Star and two-time CFL Most Outstanding Lineman, brings the same passion he had on the field to the podium. Today, Makowsky continues to serve the Saskatchewan people as a member of the Saskatchewan legislature.

During his CFL career, Makowsky used his vast physical tools to create opportunities for his teammates. He now uses the podium to bring those same opportunities for success to his audiences.

Professional, personable and inspirational, the Saskatchewan born Makowsky shares his personal on-field experiences and interesting behind the scenes locker room stories.

Makowsky’s presentations also weave in how teamwork and leadership messages can be incorporated into individual strategies for success in both personal and business endeavors.

A member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, Makowsky also touches on how giving back to the community can be can rewarding and an exceptional motivational tool in both your work and personal lives.
