jasper-howard-uconn.jpgAn officially licensed T-shirt commemorating fallen Connecticut football player Jasper Howard is now available, with the proceeds raised going to benefit two funds set up in his honor.

Howard, a junior cornerback, was fatally stabbed Oct. 18 after a university-sponsored dance on campus.

Today, he was honored before the Huskies' game at West Virginia. Both teams and the head coaches exchanged pre-game hugs and handshakes at midfield.
