Quarterback cherishes collective memories of time at KU

Posted on Sep 16, 2015 in Alumni News and News

Chip Hilleary fell in love with the University of Kansas after a football recruiting visit and knew Lawrence was where he wanted to spend the next four years.

Football fans will recall Hilleary as the quarterback who helped lead KU football to its first bowl win in 31 years with a 23-20 victory over Brigham Young University in the 1992 Aloha Bowl.

In our new video, Hilleary, d’94, describes how despite campus always changing with new construction and new faces, it’s always the same university that he remembers. “The leaders that are present now at the University of Kansas definitely have a vision and respect the past and the history of what it’s like to be a student here,” he says.

Hilleary, a Life Member of the Alumni Association, cherishes his memories of KU, including the final time he wore a Jayhawk football uniform his senior year and the camaraderie of the friends he made.
