For alumni of Yellowjacket football, the annual spring dinner with Coach Pat Stark has become a treasured tradition since it began 11 years ago. In April, a record 56 alumni attended the gathering at Perlo’s Restaurant in East Rochester. Some came from significant distances, traveling from such places as New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, and Virginia.

Coach Stark is an icon of Yellowjacket football. A Hall of Famer at both Rochester and Syracuse, he significantly elevated the stature of the program during his tenure as coach from 1969 to 1983. In 1970, he was named Section I Coach of the Year.
