A tribute to Terry Hoeppner

Hep, happy.

Jane Hoeppner stood at midfield pumping her hands in the air at a cheering crowd as the tribute to her late husband was about to begin 25 minutes before the start of a new season.

A large group of students in the east stands chanted Terry Hoeppner as a short videotape showing highlights of Hoeppner’s time at IU was played on the scoreboard video monitors.

Before the video tribute was shown, a moment of silence was observed with the Hoeppner family standing in the red state of Indiana logo at the center of the field and the Hoosier team on the sidelines. At the end of the tribute, the IU band played the fight song as Jane Hoeppner was shown on the scoreboard screen enthusiastically clapping.
