Boucher (’66) a former standout on the Husson soccer team in his day and a current member of the Husson University Athletics Hall of Fame. Mr. Boucher once again provided a facelift to the field that bears his name; the upgrades include a state of the art press box and lighting system. The press box will provide a venue for television and radio broadcasts, print media coverage, public address announcers, statisticians and scoreboard operators.
