Some of their fellow athletes told 22News that it’s a huge success for the entire school.

“That was awesome,” football player Jaylen Larry said. “Anyone else’s success feels like part of ours, so it’s just an awesome experience to be part of, honestly. it’s a fantastic kind of feeing.”

UMass sophomore Lauren Willie recalled, “I was watching in the dining hall with a couple of friends. I just transferred here so it’s really exciting to go to a big university. So it’s actually something to cheer for.”
