As the days go by it seems like everyone has been associated with former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez continue to distance themselves from him.
Now Hernandez’s alma mater, the University of Florida has decided to remove a brick from their campus that honors him for being a former All-American football player.
UF released a statement.
“We didn’t feel it was appropriate to celebrate Aaron Hernandez. We put together an immediate plan after the initial news broke to remove his likeness and name in various private and public areas in the facility, such as the South Endzone team area, locker room, football offices, Heavener Complex Kornblau Lobby and the brick display entrance to the football facility.
“We were able to implement some of the changes immediately and this (brick removal) was a more complex process to complete with our vendors.
“The plan was to have everything completed before the end of July.”
