Today is the second anniversary of the death of UConn cornerback Jasper Howard. Howard was killed in a fight outside a school-sanctioned dance at the Student Union on Oct. 18, 2009. This came hours after the Huskies’ 38-25 win over Louisville on Homecoming Weekend. Howard had 11 tackles, a forced fumble, which he recovered, in the win. His famous words to the media on Oct. 17, 2009, “You gotta play every play like its the last play you’re ever gonna play,” will not be forgotten by the UConn football team or many students and fans at the university. Howard has a memorial in the Burton Family Football Complex.
