Lunch With Larry - Photo Gallery

<B>CORAL GABLES, FL -</B> The 2001 season has kicked off with a bang and so did the first "Lunch with Larry Coker" this week. A newly started tradition slated for every Monday after a home game, the event was held at the UM Faculty club and was deemed a success.

The luncheon is sponsored by both All Sports - #1 Canes Shop since 1959 and the Hurricane Club and witnessed a crowd of over 100 UM fans and supporters for the inaugural event. All attendees had the opportunity to get their photo taken with the Canes' new head coach and any other Canes in attendance.

Aside from Larry Coker, the event also featured Heisman Trophy Candidate/Miami quarterback Ken Dorsey, Defensive Coordinator and former Cane Randy Shannon, new Volleyball Coach Nicole Lantagne and Hurricane Club President John Joffre. The event was emceed by Voice of the Hurricanes, Mark VanderMeer while All Sports GM Harry Rothwell provided giveaways and information on the latest items gracing the store's shelves.

Due to the postponement of this weekend's contest with Washington the next "Lunch with Larry Coker" will be held on October 8th after the home match up against Troy State. With the Canes traveling north to Tallahassee for the October 13th showdown with Florida State, the luncheon on the 8th would be a great opportunity for Cane fans to chat with the coach about his first head coaching trip to Doak Campbell Stadium.

Start making plans to attend October's event today! Here is a photo gallery with some of the attendees ...
