(WTNH)–On Friday, the UConn football team will end its season against Tulane. It’ll be the final game for the seniors, including Madison’s own and Daniel Hand High School grad Matt Walsh.

The same goes for Obi Melifonwu, as the safety will be NFL bound.

“It’s kind of surreal, I don’t think it’s hit me yet,” said Melifonwu. “I don’t think its going to hit me until I hit the field. It’s definitely going to be an emotional game for me. So the charge for me and for the staff and all the players, everyone involved is to give everything you have left within you for those guys.”
