Homecoming 2019 kicked off with a bang with the homecoming BBQ on Friday Evening, announcing the Homecoming Court nominees.
It follwed up with Saturday’s tailgating before the football game that kicked off at 1pm. At halftime, Tyler Tanzymore of Kappa Alpha Psi, Inc. and Megan Williams, President of Black Student Organization, were crowned Homecoming King and Queen.
Valpo Football also retired the numbers of those who were the best to ever wear the number 80 – Frederick “Fuzzy” Thurston and number 70 – Gary Puetz. Valpo fought hard but the game ended with Valpo at 13 and University of Charleston at 19.
Overall, it was a very exciting Homecoming weekend for both the football team and alumni.
