From Gibraltar to Geno Auriemma How a coaching board made its way across the Atlantic and into the hands of the UConn coach
Hartford Courant - 14th February 2019
Written by Kelli Stacy
It’s 1 a.m. in the tiny British territory of Gibraltar and Jason McMahon is still two hours from getting into bed.
He knows he has to get up in the morning for his telecommunications job, but he’ll worry about that later. Right now, he’s focused on one thing.
UConn — his favorite team — is playing South Carolina in the Huskies’ final top-15 matchup of the season. It’s a big game for the Huskies having already lost two games this season, and McMahon is eager to see how UConn performs.
Not only is McMahon watching for the action, but he’s also hoping to catch a glimpse of something that’s traveled over 3,500 miles and landed in the hands of UConn coach Geno Auriemma.
The wood clipboard that the coaching legend scrawls plays on throughout the game was designed and handcrafted by McMahon himself. It has traveled from his home in Gibraltar, a territory of about 35,000 people on the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula, and arrived in Connecticut just days before the Huskies’ big game.
“It’s a neat thing,” Auriemma, who met McMahon in 2017, said. “It’s a neat little memento and a nice gift from a fan. UConn basketball goes a long way around the world, so I felt pretty appreciative that he’d go out of his way to do something like that.”
