A record number of former Yellowjacket football players took part in this spring’s annual “Dinner with the Coach” to honor Pat Stark, who coached the team from 1969 to 1983, and to renew their ties as classmates, teammates, and friends. Nearly 40 football alumni gathered at an East Rochester restaurant in April, coming from as far away as Los Angeles for the get-together.

A member of Rochester’s Athletics Hall of Fame, Stark led the Yellowjackets to 60 victories, including a 12-game winning streak that still stands as a program record for consecutive wins.
