PRIOR LAKE, Minn. -- Twenty years ago, a winter's-worth of hard work was paid off in the best way for UND football letterwinner Tip Enebak. He got to hang out with his former teammates, many of whom lived across the country and he hadn't seen in 20-30 years.
Enebak continues to host the event, now held at the Legends Golf Course in Prior Lake, Minn. The event is as strong as ever. Not only do former University of North Dakota letterwinners get to connect with former teammates and other generations of the UND football family, but the group raises money for scholarships in the process.
Scholarship endowments were formed on behalf of former football coaches Dewey Sundby and Gene Murphy. This year those gifts continue to grow and give back at record levels, and are awarded to UND football student-athletes.
Enebak may have helped start the event with Jim Thompson, Jerry Jacobs and Don Gulseth, but the legacy and connections live on each summer.
