Funeral services set for Salaam
A public funeral service for former University of Colorado football star and Heisman Trophy winner Rashaan Salaam will be held Friday.
The service will start at noon at the Islamic Center of Boulder, 5495 Baseline Road. Mourners planning to attend are asked to arrive by 11:45 a.m.
After the service will be a public procession to Mountain View Memorial Park, 3016 Kalmia Ave. in Boulder.
Salaam was 42 when he died Monday of a suspected suicide. His body was found at Boulder’s Eben G. Park — 2 miles from Folsom Field, where he rushed for 2,055 yards and 24 touchdowns as a Heisman-winning junior in 1994.
