University of Florida school calendar owners flipped the page to July 2014 only to find a familiar face featured this month: Aaron Hernandez.
Today, Hernandez is behind bars in Bristol County House of Corrections, charged with three murders. But the former New England Patriot player was once an up-and-coming Gator. The photo shows Hernandez running the ball in his Gators gear, and includes some stats: “Height 6’1”, Weight 245 lbs, Hometown: Bristol, CT.”
Yup, that’s him.
The official Twitter account of the Florida Gators confirmed the authenticity of the photo.
That means the calendar was approved shortly before he was arrested in June 2013 in his North Attleboro home.
Apparently you can still buy your own calendar at Target.com.
Hernandez was also featured as Mr. August in the offiial 2013 Patriots calendar, months after his arrest—though that calendar was published long before Hernandez was implicated in the double murders in South Boston, and before the murder of Odin Llyod.Lara can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
