SDSU's student section, The Show, is asking fans attending tonight's matchup between the Aztecs and Boise St. Broncos to bring stars to Viejas Arena to pay tribute to Jerry Coleman.
Help us honor San Diego icon and true American hero, Jerry Coleman by bringing your own star to hang on Wednesday against Boise. #OhDoctor— The Show (@TheShowSDSU) January 7, 2014
As we all know, Jerry Coleman's impact was far-reaching, and all of San Diego is affected by the loss of such an integral part of our community. So this is just one way to keep Jerry's spirit alive and show respect for someone who did so much for us all.
I've been told that fans will hang the stars if/when the arena observes a moment of silence for the Colonel, as well as following key plays throughout the game, much like Jerry would hang his star after great plays were made. I know a lot of us at Gaslamp Ball are SDSU fans (and Boise fans) and will be attending tonight's game, so you'll want to be a part of this.
