UMass Football History --- 1982 Game Program Scans

I've added 15 images from various 1982 UMass game programs to the UMass Historical Scans section of the blog. The link is here . Included are some featured scans of Garry Pearson.

In 1982 UMass went 5-6 and 3-2 in the Yankee Conference.

On 11/13/82 UMass defeated New Hampshire to win a piece of their 14th Yankee Conference Championship.

On 11/30/82 Garry Pearson rushed for a then-UMass single game record of 288 yards against AIC. He finished with 1,631 yards, 312 attempts, 5.2 yards/carry and 13 TDs.

All Yankee Conference were:
  • Glen Holden CB
  • Garry Pearson RB
  • Todd Comeau DE
  • Gary Frecker TE
  • Grady Fuller S
  • Scott LaFond LG
I found a number of 1982 game programs in the vast UMass Football Blog archives, that accounts for the larger number of scans than normal for 1982.

The historical scans section of the Blog now includes:
  • 1971
  • 1973
  • 1976 through 1982

Found a nice link for the CAA media day interviews and preseason selections with game action video.


If you can't find it, just click on the article with Cohen and Belcher from Maine. The videos are in that file.

Nice picture of Doug Flutie getting sacked--I was at that game and UMass played a great game but Flutie was too much to handle...
