Gov. Ned Lamont and Annie Lamont welcomed trick-or-treaters to the Executive Residence in Hartford Monday as a UConn Huskies football player and cheerleader. He wore a helmet for a while before taking it off for a break. He’s the 89th governor of Connecticut, so the uniform number.

The UConn football program was all over social media on Halloween night.

Governor Ned Lamont handed out Halloween treats dressed as a UConn soccer player, while his wife Annie was a cheerleader. Lamont greeted trick-or-treaters at the Executive Residence in Hartford, dressed in a number 89 UConn uniform to signify that he is the state’s 89th governor.

Lamont, it should be noted, is a big supporter of UConn football. Lamont and his chief of staff, Paul Mounds, were among those who participated in the recruiting process that brought Jim Mora in November 2021.

“I love this guy,” Lamont told CT Insider shortly after Mora was hired. UConn is 4-5, coming off an upset win over Boston College, which hadn’t lost to a New England school since 1978.

Meanwhile, the Huskies in Storrs were all about the ‘trick’ this Halloween. The football program had linebacker Ian Swenson act as a fashion model dressed in a UConn football uniform and placed him at the entrance to the Burton Family Football Complex.

When players and staff came in, Swenson scared them.

The UConn media team placed a hidden camera by the door to record all the reactions. When freshman Victor Rosa walked in, Swenson jumped ahead of him, causing Rosa to roll away in visible shock.

Though one of the most animated reactions came from tight end Justin Joly, who after being scared yelled an exasperated “Sweeny!”

Then he threw a “flag on the piece” and jokingly called the stunt “mean.”
