Bobby Lepori played an emotional game last week when the ‘Dogs faced off against his hometown school Nevada (Reno). This week he says will be “bittersweet.”
In a tradition started 12 years ago by Head Coach Pat Hill, the seniors will get one final tackle the night before their final home game. Lepori will get a moment to talk about his years playing at Fresno State then he will get to run down the field surrounded by his teammates before making his “final” tackle.
The seniors did not expect to be 5-4 or more importantly 1-3 at home entering the final home game of 2008. This will be the first senior class to have a losing record at Bulldog Stadium under Pat Hill.
