CHARLOTTESVILLE — Interested in one of the No. 89 football jerseys that All-America tight end Heath Miller wore at UVa?
How about a No. 7 (Matt Schaub) or a No. 18 (Marques Hagans) or a No. 66 (D’Brickashaw Ferguson) or a No. 91 (Chris Long)?
Any or all of those, plus many, many more, could be yours this weekend — but you’ll have to hustle.
UVa’s Spring Football Festival is Saturday at Scott Stadium. The team’s intrasquad scrimmage starts at 2 p.m. Gates to the stadium, however, open at noon, and that’s when the clearance sale near the scoreboard, under the pergola, gets under way.
Jerseys worn by UVa players from 2000 to ’06 will be put on sale, as is, on a first-come, first-served basis.
The price: $75 apiece.
At least one of Nos. 1-99 will be available when the sale begins, said Matt Althoff, UVa’s director of equipment room operations, except for Nos. 12 (Shawn Moore), 24 (Frank Quayle), 35 (Bill Dudley), 48 (Joe Palumbo), 73 (Jim Dombrowski) and 97 (Gene Edmonds).
Those six numbers have been retired.
