More than 150 former Husky football players were among the crowd of about 250 people who returned on May 12 to say farewell to Memorial Stadium, UConn’s home field for nearly 60 years. The stadium will make way for the new Basketball Student Athlete Development Center.

The former Huskies had mini-reunions among teammates, toured the Burton Family Football Complex and Mark R. Shenkman Training Center, tossed the football, and enjoyed a barbecue meal under sunny skies. The former players were hosted by head coach Paul Pasqualoni and current members of the football team.
