Shot after shot soared over the bar for the UConn women’s soccer team as they could not control the nerves in their loss to Providence College on Thursday.
The one-time UConn defensive back and NFL Combine killer did not play in the New England Patriots’ 13-3 Super Bowl victory, but was a team member nonetheless. The pride of Grafton, Massachusetts was signed by the Pats for their stretch run, and while he racked up several inactives, he did dress and play in their AFC Championship win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Melinfonwu has had an inauspicious start to his career, but now is a champion with a ring. Always good for a former Husky.
