"It was great to have everyone back," said head coach Mike DeLong. "Our alums are such an important part of our proud tradition here at Springfield College, and it's always special to have everyone together again."
The alums were treated to a picture-perfect Western Massachusetts day as they returned to support the football program. Last season, Springfield won its fifth ECAC Bowl Championship and ended the year with an 8-3 record.
The Pride will kick off the 2013 campaign against local-foe Western New England on Saturday, September 7, beginning at 1:00 pm.
