Those Were The Days - 1998 Fighting Illini Football Team
We were down in Champaign recently for an Illini game and as part of the pre-game festivities we spent some time in what they call the "Legacy Lounge" in the Northwest corner of Memorial Stadium. Along with a nice bar and some good tailgate chow (bbq sandwiches this week), they have photos of a bunch of the past Fighting Illini football teams. There, on a few of the team photos, was a picture of *this guy* that I was able to show my nieces and nephews and kids. That was kinda fun.
There's a page here on the blog that chronicles a bit more about my time as a punter on the Fighting Illini football team in the 90's. Jake Parrillo - punter on Illinois football team.
If you look closely at the photo, you'll see me in #44.
