I hope everyone is having a great fall!

Not much to report this time around—send us your updates—we’d love to hear from you!

Our classmate and former UMaine football player, Brian Gaine, has moved from the Houston Texans, where he was the director of player personnel, to the Buffalo Bills, where he will serve as the VP of player personnel. His NFL career has included a start with the NY Jets, then the Dallas Cowboys, then Miami Dolphins before going to the Texans. As a Black Bear, Brian brought in 74 passes as tight end. Congrats on the new role, Brian!

In other sporting news, Derek Soule was inducted into the Maine Baseball Hall of Fame. At Greely High School, Derek has coached the Rangers for 17 seasons, winning four state championships. He also played there as an all-conference infielder. Congratulations, Derek!

Hope this finds you well!
