Wednesday-- March 6, 2013

The following is a cut-and-paste from an e-mail from the Minuteman Club. I'm going to go if it stops snowing...

Dear Minutemen,

The University of Massachusetts Football Team invites our football alumni to come join us at the "Night of Champions" on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 at 7:00 PM. This FREE event will be held on the UMass Campus in the Curry Hicks Cage.

Watch selected MINUTEMEN football players attempt to break school and personal records in the: BENCH PRESS, SQUAT, and DEADLIFT!  Witness amazing vertical jumps in the Minuteman Dunk Contest, and see extraordinary speed, agility, and quickness in the Minuteman Challenge Obstacle course!

The "Night of Champions" will be a great way to get to know your Minutemen face to face AND get excited about the 2013 football season.

There will also be a FREE autograph session for you and your guests with our players and coaches at 6:00 PM.

Seating is limited, so please RSVP by replying to this e-mail. Include your name and how many people will be in your party.

Yesterday, at the UMass Pro Day at Gillette Stadium, I ran into graduated Minuteman great, Jeromy Miles. He's the subject of our fourth MINUTEMAN UPDATE:

Hi! This is Jeromy Miles. I graduated from UMass with my bachelor's degree in kinesiology in the spring of 2010.  After graduating, I signed with the Cincinnati Bengals as a college free agent.  I have just finished my third season with the Bengals, and I'm currently still on the team.  I've been spending this off-season training hard and spending time with my fiancee in Worcester. I'm looking forward to being blessed with another full season in the NFL. 

I am also working diligently to build up our alumni database. Please email my Administrative Assistant, Joann Chauvin  jchauvin@admin.umass.edu with your updated email, phone, and address. If you know of any "lost" alumni, please pass along their information to our office.

Go UMass!
