The 8th annual KU Kickoff, held last weekend in Prairie Village, was a great success!
Thousands of Jayhawks of all ages gathered at Corinth Square to celebrate KU while they enjoyed the pep band, Spirit Squad and live music from Sellout. Four KU coaches addressed the crowd: football coach Charlie Weis, men’s basketball coach Bill Self; women’s basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson; and women’s track and field national Coach of the Year Stanley Redwine.
Watch the short video below to see some of their remarks to the crowd:

Thanks to all the alumni, fans and friends who joined us for KU Kickoff! We hope to see you on the Hill this fall.
KU alumni should have received emails this week with the KU Men’s and Women’s Basketball 2013 NCAA Tournament Preview Guides. These digital guides, courtesy of KU Athletics, include a special video message from head coaches Bill Self and Bonnie Henrickson, along with a breakdown of the first-weekend match-ups. Look inside to read player profiles, watch highlight videos from the past season and more.
Thanks to all the Jayhawks who attended our Great Plains Chapter Reception and Golf Tournament Thursday and Friday at the Golf Club at Southwind in Garden City. The Garden City Telegram wrote a nice story about women’s basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson’s comments at the reception about her high hopes for next year’s team.
