Still Big Men on Campus

  • July 22, 2013

University of La Verne Head Football Coach Chris Krich and his staff recently invited University of La Verne football players from years past to come back to campus and re-connect with the program and with each other in an alumni reception in the Sarah & Art Ludwick Conference Center at University of La Verne.

“This event is specifically designed to help bring back and connect the  former Leopard football players with the program,” Krich said. “When I got here, there seemed to be a disconnect between the football team and its alumni. So I started it last year as kind of a social gathering/town hall meeting where we, the coaches, talk exclusively to the alumni about the upcoming season.

“We are using it as a kickoff to the 2013 season and a great way to get to know the alumni by dispersing information about what we have been doing throughout the year.  I want the alumni to be connected with our program and also network with each other, so the new and old can mix and mingle and get to know one another on a personal and, hopefully, professional level.”

Several alumni from past teams attended the event on the top floor of the Sara & Michael Abraham Campus Center, as did University President Devorah Lieberman, Provost Greg Dewey and Director of Alumni Relations Monika Moore. They shared conversation and caught up with each other over food and drink, and learned more about the current football program at La Verne.

The 2013 football season kicks off Sept. 21 at Whitworth College in Washington. The Leopards’ first home game is Sept. 28, against Menlo at 1 p.m.
