For Game 5 of the home slate, Rhett Lashlee returned to the sidelines of Rentschler Field, albeit on the visitor’s side this year. UConn matched his up-tempo for most of the game and treated the kids of Hartford Youth Scholars to an offensive show.
Hartford Youth Scholars’ mission is to create lifetime opportunities for underserved Hartford children through preparation to be successful in the post-secondary environment. HYS provides the youth who need it most, access to preparatory services to succeed beyond high school graduation.
“Our scholars had a wonderful time, we had great seats! It was a couple of our scholars’ first time ever going to a football game, so it was a nice experience for them. Hartford Youth Scholars appreciates your help in making it possible for our scholars to enjoy the UConn football game!”Brittany Rodriguez, Assistant Program Dean.
