Every once in a while a person, who also happens to be a super-fan, touches a college football program in ways that cannot be measured. For Western Michigan, that young man was John Mulhearn.
Mulhearn is the son of a former Bronco player, who connected with the team in a very unique way. The team took young John under their wing and he could be seen at practice, on the sideline at games, in the locker room with the team after a big win, or devastating loss, or at the spring game providing the heartwarming moment of the year.
Unfortunately, John recently passed away, but to pay tribute to him, his family, and what their bond with the Western Michigan family meant, the Bronco created a nice little video tribute to honor him.
Bravo Western Michigan. Bravo.
