Julian Harter, a resident at Quail Summit Senior Living Community in Canandaigua has a passion for Syracuse Men's Basketball. Julian saw his favorite team in action for the first time in his life at 87 years old.
Julian had never been to a bigger sporting event than a small local community college game. "To go to a game where it seats so many people would be exciting. I've never been in a stadium that makes you feel like you're a part of something larger than yourself. To go to an SU game, a team tha tmeans so much would be thrilling."
Julian saw Syracuse play Rutgers University on Saturday, February 19 with his two sons, and three grandsons. The game was a close one, but Syracuse won in overtime. "It was a real nail-biter." The stadium boasted the second highest attendance for the 2010-2011 season, with 29,000 people cheering on the Orangemen. He described the experience as a fun trip...that was just mind-boggling."
