After a homecoming full of excitement and nostalgia for me, I woke up this morning to several text messages which delivered some awful news. UConn star cornerback, and all around outstanding individual, Jasper Howard passed away. While details are still filtering in, it is here where I will take a step back from any and all reporting. Here is where I draw the line on my responsibility to readers and that to my friends, teammates, and br0thers.
Jazz was a great teammate, always an inspiration on and off the field, and was one hell of an athlete. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, as should all of yours. Keep him in your thoughts. This is a tough day for UConn football.
