I have received permission for sharing these comments made in an interview to our local Rivals reporter (John Battle) from High School Coach Ken Barger (Poughkeepsie, N.Y.) concerning our program. I thought it was very important to share this now, especially with all of the recent negativity about. Over the years, Coach Ken Barger has developed a relationship with the UConn coaching staff, and he shared his thoughts on the program.
"I really like the UConn program," he said. "I have had a chance to watch them develop from 1-AA all the way to a BCS game on the national stage. I currently have the starting fullback, Reuben Frank, there. I love how they academically push the kids and I love the facilities. I love how hard they coach the kids. UConn has a chance to be a special place again and anytime they have a young man from Poughkeepsie that they like, I will make sure that they have everything they need on the young man. They are committed to doing things the right way."
