Championship Ring

As a memento to their success of becoming National Champions, and to the honor and prestige that it brought to the University - each member of the team was presented with a custom crafted Championship ring. There were 31 members of the team that received rings with an additional ring being minted for Chancellor Fredrik Eaton, the primary funder of the Ring Project.

It's heavy metal. Heavy. Ten karat gold,
it was designed by Jostens representative Pat Tyre and former coach Mike Kelly.
The face of the ring has a dominating V with Reds scripted on the face, with a diamond encrusted above the script. Encircling the surface is script which reads 1998 National Champions. On one side is a caricature of the Unversity Cup, while the other commemorates the first step in the process, the AUAA championship.
The player's name and number is on the side as well.
