The Trinity football team won its 40th game in a row at its home field in Hartford on Saturday. Ten years without losing a game at home! That is the longest home winning streak in the country. They beat Williams on Saturday, 21 - 13. The last time the Bantams lost in Hartford was 2001, and it was Williams who beat them.
I have had the fun of watching major conference football in a stadium of 106,000 screaming fans, but it is also fun watching a football game at a Division 3 school along with 3,800 of the athletes' friends, families, alumni and classmates. The players at Trinity and Williams know that they will not go on to play professional football . . . they just play because they like playing football.
