In search of...the Husky Walk
Figure out which UConn player the youngster was in this picture from on the previous post? It's none other than Rob Lunn at age 2 1/2. Thanks to Rob's dad, Bob, for the picture. The picture was taken at a Buffalo Bills event in upstate New York circa 1988, and the two guys alongside young Rob are star linebackers Cornelius Bennett and Shane Conlan. Apparently, the excitement knocked little Rob out and he passed out, ball in his clutches, on the ride home.
The photo was part of a feature I wrote on Rob that appeared in Friday's Register. Unfortunately, it didn't appear on our website, but I'm working on it. Rob's dad is a New York State Supreme Court justice, and Rob talked about an assortment of topics including growing up..."Needless to say, I didn't win many arguments," he said. ... his recruitment (he committed to William & Mary before visiting UConn, then changed his mind) and evolution into a starter for the Huskies .... and his future aspirations. Rob isn't thinking about following dad's footsteps into judgeship, but plans to attend law school to study contract law and become a sports agent. I am working to get the story online soon.
That's it for now. Maybe some postgame notes.
