BOULDER — Get ready for a CU Buff reunion bash of epic proportion as Pasta Jay’s celebrates the career of Darian Hagan on April 13.
The CU football great, best known for quarterbacking the Buffs to the team’s only national championship in 1990, will be inducted into The Colorado Athletic Hall of Fame on April 17.
Pasta Jay’s will honor Hagan with a reunion party on April 13 starting at 3 p.m.
CU fans past and present are welcome to stop by Pasta Jay’s and congratulate Hagan, as the QB celebrates with old coaches and teammates. CU greats such as Alfred Williams, Mike Pritchard and Deon Figures are expected to attend.
While regarded as one of the greatest players in CU history, Hagan was also the first Golden Buff to ever work at Pasta Jay’s. The restaurant has employed scores of CU athletes since opening for business in 1988.
Hagan’s tenure at Pasta Jay’s was as memorable as his days under center at Folsom Field.
“He never lifted a dish in his life and he still made more tips than the waitresses,” Pasta Jay observed. “He was Hagan and everyone loved him.”
The bond started between Pasta Jay and Hagen in 1989 has only grown stronger over the decades.
“I am proud to honor my brother Darian with a reunion party,” Pasta Jay said. “He is one of my closest friends and one of my worst employees!”
