BUFFALO, N.Y. -- University at Buffalo head football coach Jeff
Quinn and members of the UB Bulls football team will pledge their
support for women at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, April 9, in UB Stadium by
placing their handprints on a sheet that will be hung in the UB
Student Union as part of the “Clothesline Project.”
The “Clothesline Project” is a visual display that
bears witness to violence against women by hanging T-shirts
decorated to represent women’s individual experiences on a
clothesline that is on display to the public.
Men who support the women involved in the project are encouraged
to place their handprints on sheets demonstrating that their hands
will never hurt a woman.
Quinn wants his players to treat individuals with respect,
"I have placed an emphasis on our players to be other-centered.
The four Bulls' commandments in our locker room are what we carry
every day and that's part of who we are. That's don't lie, don't
cheat, don't steal and treat women with respect,” Quinn said.
“I tell our players all the time to keep quiet and do
your job and good things will happen to you. Keep your hands off of
people and that's what I want our players to understand. I want
them to be tough gentlemen."
