University of Denver Alum Miller Baird (DU '72) and his wife Debbie worked tirelessly to gather thousands of signatures on Jesse Martin's Banner Friday evening. They met hundreds of students, hundreds of alums and thousands of DU hockey fans.

Angel Field in the DU Athletic Department was able to gather the player signatures earlier in the afternoon.

Thanks to all the fans who participated and to the volunteers who made it happen. Doubtless many will ever forget this magic evening when Pioneer Nation came together to support one of our injured athletes.

Thanks to all who worked so hard to make this happen. Especially Miller and Debbie for buying the banner and collecting the signatures, DG for masterminding and collecting the funding the Minnesota trip to present the banner today, and Zeke Perez, who gets the honor of presenting the banner to the family in St. Paul. Also to Angel Field for all her work in making the banner available for the team and fans at Magness.

The banner brought everyone together in a common cause, and I am sure Jesse and his family will enjoyhaving that symbol of support and pride.

A big thanks to the students, who also turned in a Division I level cheering performance in support of Martin and the team. They really came together from the pregame, to the anthem, all game long until the final horn. Your enthusiasm was a big difference maker...,
