The UCONN Band Will Do Something Special Tonight

The University of Connecticut's football team's season opener is on Thursday night.

The marching band will honor the family of a Parkland, Florida school shooting victim who dreamed of attending the university.

14-year-old Alex Schachter loved UConn and wanted to play trombone in the band. The school admitted him posthumously.

The  band will play his favorite song  "25 or 6 to 4" by Chicago and spell out the name "Alex" on Rentschler Field.

Alex's family will attend the game in East Hartford.
