ALABAMA STATE UNIVERSITY

Alabama State University is in the midst of a vital season of transformation. While holding true to its legacy of providing a quality education for its students, the University also is experiencing unprecedented growth, both physically and academically.

ONE TEAM ONELegacy DREAM The ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

Alabama State University evolved from the Lincoln Normal School that opened on Nov. 13, 1867, with 113 students, thanks to the courageous efforts of its founders, nine former slaves from Perry County, Ala., known affectionately as the Marion Nine. The Lincoln School incorporated on July 18, 1867. In 1868, the State Board of Education gave the school a new designation, and it became known as Lincoln Normal School. In December 1873, the state board accepted the transfer of title to the school after a legislative act was passed authorizing the state to fund a Normal School. George N. Card was named president. Thus, the predecessor of Alabama State University became the first state-supported educational institution for blacks. This began ASU’s rich history as a “Teachers’ College.” In 1887, the second president, William Burns Paterson, was instrumental in the institution’s move from Marion to Montgomery. In the decades that followed, Lincoln Normal School became a junior college and, in 1928, a full four-year institution. More name changes were on the horizon: In 1929, the institution became State Teachers College at Montgomery, Alabama State College for Negroes in 1948 and Alabama State College in 1954. In 1969, the State Board of Education, then the governing body of the University, approved a name change to Alabama State University.

The Transformation

The University’s Vision 2020 Transformation initiative was launched when Dr. William H. Harris returned to the University in 2008.  During his first tenure (1994-2000), Harris was instrumental in the Knight v. State of Alabama remedial decree, which resulted in much of the tremendous growth that the University has experienced over the past 15 years.

Because of the decree, the University has been transformed both physically and academically. Multimillion dollar academic and athletic buildings now grace the 172-acre campus, including new football, baseball and softball stadiums, as well as upgrades to existing facilities. High-demand academic programs have been established and cutting-edge research is being conducted by ASU faculty and students. We now offer Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science, as well as master’s and education specialist degrees. The University also offers the Ph. D. in microbiology, the clinical doctorate in physical therapy, and the Ed.D. and the Ph.D. in educational leadership, policy and law. With a focus on a global initiative, the campus has a diverse student and faculty population while maintaining its proud heritage as a Historically Black College or University (HBCU). Alabama State University charters more than 70 student organizations, including nine Greek organizations and 17 honors organizations. In addition to social, cultural and political groups, students have musical performance opportunities, such as the Mighty Marching Hornets and the University Choir, and departmental organizations for most majors. Intercollegiate athletic programs include baseball, basketball, tennis, track and field, volleyball, softball, golf, bowling and cross country. The ASU Hornets are members of the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) and compete at the NCAA Division I level.

The Future ASU has its eye on the future while remaining true to its mission of being a student-centered institution that provides quality programs in undergraduate and graduate instruction, continuing education and research. The faculty, staff and administration of the University are committed to the pursuit of the institutional goal of preparing students to compete successfully in an increasingly global economy.

Thy Sons and Daughters love thy halls, Aglow with truth and light, And every heart beats true to thee, In whom there is no night. O Alma Mater, fair and dear, We proudly hail thy name, Which far and near is known and loved And crowned with glowing fame. Thy campus flowers and shady walks Bring thoughts of Marion Green Before thy trials in Beulah Vale, Which God from us did screen. But now we stand on College Heights Content with God’s decree, For all He does is right and good And makes for Liberty.

Chorus Alabama! Alabama! Hail, hail, hail, hail, college so dear Alabama! Alabama! ‘tis for you we’ll cheer All hail the men who fight on the field All hail your glory can’t be repealed! So, hail, hail, hail, hail, Alabama! Hail, hail, hail! bamastatesports.com

In 1980, the Mighty Marching Hornets put together a halftime show saluting the late Joe Louis, one of the world’s greatest boxers. This show toured many cities and received rave reviews for each performance.

James Oliver Band Director

In 1985, the Mighty Marching Hornets were invited to represent the Southwestern Athletic Conference at the second annual Freedom Bowl Classic in Atlanta. They also performed at the game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Chicago Bears in 1986, where they presented a tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The Mighty Marching Hornets were the exhibition band for the South Central Marching Band Classic in Homewood in 1986. The band has performed at other classics and games such as the Bronze Classic in Atlanta (1991), the Motor City Classic in Pontiac, Mich. (1991), the Alamo Heritage Bowl in Miami (1991), the Circle City Classic in Indianapolis (1992), the Battle of the Bands in Mobile (2000) and the Detroit Football Classic (2003). Recently, members of the band were invited to perform on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” The Mighty Marching Hornets have won numerous awards for their unique performances, which are distinguished by an unusual step called “Double Time.” Expect nothing less than the best from the Mighty Marching Hornets as they strive to uphold their motto: “The Price of Glory is High.”

ONE TEAM ONE DREAM ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

For each of the past three seasons, the Alabama State University football program has tied for the best record in the SWAC’s Eastern Division, earning a berth in the championship game in 2010. With that success has been three consecutive winning campaigns, achieved for the first time since 2003-05. Entering his seventh season leading his alma mater, head coach Reggie Barlow has the program positioned right where he believed it could be. “We tried to build the program the right way, where we would be able to put consecutive years together where we are competing for the championship,” Barlow said. “I think our coaches and players have done a good job of that. Going into this season, we’re expecting the same. We’re hoping the coaches we have here and the players we have in the program will again put us in position to compete for a championship at the end of the season.” The program will also play its first full season in New ASU Stadium, a sparkling new $62 million stadium which opened Thanksgiving Day 2012.

26

“For our University, students and fans, it’s history in the making,” Barlow said of the 26,500-seat venue which will host six games this season. “It’s rare when you get to be involved in ‘the first time’ for a facility. It’s a blessing we’re in this position to lead the program in the first full season in our new stadium. We’re looking forward to it. It’s an unbelievable venue for football and it will be fun to have other schools come and see our stadium.” In addition to ASU’s on-field success, Barlow continues to be adamant about having success in the classroom. The former ASU graduate and wide receiver has worked hard at trying to bring those same expectations to the ASU Football team. More than 30 Hornets earned at least 3.0 GPAs in both the fall and spring semesters in 2012-13. “It was important to me,” Barlow said. “No matter how well I did during the season, my mom would continually ask me when I was going to finish my degree. She made me understand how important it was. Now it’s my turn to do the same for my players and my community.” A record-breaking receiver and kick returner, Barlow was recruited to ASU by the legendary Houston Markham, for whom the ASU football complex is named. During his senior year, Barlow caught 58 passes for 1,267 yards. The Montgomery native and Sidney Lanier High School standout finished his Hornet career with 133 catches and 2,536 yards, school records surpassed in 2011 by former wideout Nick Andrews. The NFL took notice and Barlow was selected in the fourth round of the 1996 NFL draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. It was the kickoff to a successful professional career. To this day, Barlow’s name is still etched on several of the team’s records. In 1998, Barlow led the NFL in punt return yardage, with 43 returns for 555 yards and a touchdown and was named a Pro Bowl alternate.

He still ranks among the Jaguars’ career leaders for most punt returns (79), most punt return yards (967), and average per return (12.2), as well as among the single-season record holders for most punt returns (55 in 1998), most punt return yards (555 in 1998) and average per return (12.9) in 1998. After five years in Jacksonville, Barlow joined the Oakland Raiders. In 2002, Barlow began his two-year tenure with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he would soon earn a Super Bowl Ring. Even at the height of his success, the idea of coaching was never far from Barlow’s mind. Throughout his career, he collected tips, ideas and habits of his coaches, going so far as to record them in a notebook. He would put that information and experience to good use when he joined the ASU football staff as quarterbacks coach in 2005. In his first season, Barlow served as mentor and tutor to

single snap of college football experience between them. Under Barlow’s tutelage, Alex Engram would earn a SWAC Newcomer of the Week award and finish eighth in the conference in total offense. After that season, Barlow was named interim head coach. Just a few weeks later, the interim title was removed and Barlow’s dream was realized. “I love ASU,” Barlow said. “They have been so good to me and my family. This is my dream job.” Barlow is married to Michele and is the father of three children — Ericka, Reggie Jr. and Simone.

He has athleticism to elude rushers and keep plays alive. We’ve been happy with what we’ve seen from him thus far and the way he’s developed in leading the team.

ONE TEAM ONE DREAM

Favor, a Southern Miss transfer, played in 12 games over two seasons for the Eagles. Last season he played in five games with three starts, completing 37-of-67 passes for 650 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions while also rushing for 133 yards and three touchdowns.

ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

“Favor is real mature. He understands the game, and has great maturity. He can make all the throws, and can run with the ball as well. He has athleticism as well. We’re expecting him to be a heavy contributor to our offense this season. When you have two guys that have the skill set these two have, you have to find a way to allow them to make plays. We’re thrilled about his development and look forward to those two competing.”

For each of the past three seasons, the Alabama State University football program has tied for the best record in the SWAC’s Eastern Division, earning a berth in the championship game in 2010. With that success has been three consecutive winning campaigns, achieved for the first time since 2003-05. Entering his seventh season leading his alma mater, head coach Reggie Barlow has the program positioned right where he believed it could be.

“For our University, students and fans, it’s history in the making,” Barlow said of the 26,500-seat venue which will host six games this season. “It’s rare when you get to be involved in ‘the first time’ for a facility. It’s a blessing we’re in this position to lead the program in the first full season in our new stadium. We’re looking forward to it. It’s an unbelievable venue for football and it will be fun to have other schools come and see our stadium.”

OFFENSE

Perhaps the top position battle this fall will be at the quarterback position. Redshirt sophomore Daniel Duhart and junior transfer Arsenio Favor will compete for the starting role.

“We tried to build the program the right way, where we would be able to put consecutive years together where we are competing for the championship,” Barlow said. “I think our coaches and players have done a good job of that. Going into this season, we’re expecting the same. We’re hoping the coaches we have here and the players we have in the program will again put us in position to compete for a championship at the end of the season.”

Duhart played in seven games last season, completing 29-of-42 passes for 288 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. Showing great poise when called upon to play, Duhart threw a touchdown pass on his first collegiate drive and earned SWAC Newcomer of the Week honors after passing for 192 yards (22-of-31) with two touchdowns and no interceptions in leading Alabama State to a come-from-behind win at Prairie View.

The program will also play its first full season in New ASU Stadium, a sparkling new $62 million stadium which opened Thanksgiving Day 2012.

“Duhart has been in the system for a few years now and has a really good grasp of the offense,” Barlow said. “We know he’s a pinpoint passer.

2013 Alabama State Football Media Guide

2012 first-team All-SWAC performer and Newcomer of the Year Isaiah Crowell returns after rushing for 842 yards and 15 touchdowns. “Isaiah is a guy that can run with power and speed, and catch the ball out of the backfield,” said Barlow of the junior who also caught 11 passes for 95 yards. “He’s good in pass protection and has been real committed to the offseason program. He has a real vision for the things he wants to achieve this season, going over 1,000 yards and 20 touchdowns. He’s been working hard and it’s great to have a guy like that coming back.” Malcolm Cyrus (459 yards, 5 TDs), Andre Kincey and Jahaad Coleman also add key depth at the position. Nehemiah Henry (20 rec., 316 yds, 1 TD in 2011), Marcus Gamble (24 rec., 116 yards in ’12),and DeMario Bell (10 rec., 318 yds, 3 TDs) lead a versatile wide receiver corp. “Our receiver group is a great mixture of size, speed and explosiveness,” Barlow said. “Nehemiah has done some great things in the program. Getting him back with his route running and ability to make plays with the ball in his hands gives us a top-notch threat. Marcus is very savvy, a good route runner who has size and speed and

can block on the perimeter. DeMario burst on the scene and had a lot of explosive plays for us and we’re expecting the same this year, and he has the tools to do more this year. He has size, speed, and power and catches the ball well and goes and gets it at its highest point, and he can stretch the field for us.” On the offensive line, senior center Edmund Davis is the anchor of the unit, and is joined by returning starter right tackle Tovar Allen. “Edmund is the sheriff and the captain; the glue to keep the unit together,” Barlow said. “He’s done it for a lot of years for us, and we really love his maturity and leadership, and the way the guys buy into what he says. He’s packed on good weight in the offseason, and has organized the player workouts. We are really encouraged by Tovar’s development and growth. He’s been really steady and we look for his continued improvement.” Justin Robinson is expected to emerge as a threat in the passing game from the tight end position. “Justin has good size, catches the ball well, and will be an asset in the running game with his blocking,” Barlow said. He’s graduated as well, very mature and we want him to be more involved in our offense. I think 25-30 catches would be an outstanding season for him, and he has the skill set to do it.

DEFENSE

Under new defensive coordinator Kevin Ramsey, Barlow is looking for the group to be a disruptive force. “We’re happy to have Kevin with his expertise and all the things he’s accomplished in his career,” Barlow said. “We want our guys to be real combative, play with aggressiveness, apply pressure and have great attention to detail. We want the quarterbacks we’ll face to be forced to make quick decisions.

Baker and the return of DeMarques Taylor lead the mix of players.

“It’s probably our deepest position,” Barlow said. “It’s a mixture of young and old. We have Taylor and Matt Leonard back with that group. They’ve been in the program for a long time and we’re going to rely on their dedication and experience to help our young guys along, along with Marcus Owens. I’m hoping these guys take a huge step forward and develop into what we need them to be.” The Alabama State secondary is young but talented group. Safety Deandre Rashada is the only returning starter, but Nick Martin, Michael Showers and Troy University transfer Dionte Ponder are expected to be key contributors. “Nick has the size, speed, mindset and cover skills to do what we’re asking him to do in this scheme,” Barlow said. “It’s a matter of him continuing to develop with more film study and work. We believe Michael has big-time talent, and we just need him to maintain his confidence. Dionte gives us an opportunity to have good depth. Bradley Street has size and speed, and just needs to continue to gain experience. Darius Knox and Marcus Berg will also be back and add to the experience of the group.”

SPECIAL TEAMS

Mr. Do-It-All Bobby Wenzig is back as a major threat for the Hornets, not only with his ability in the scoring game, but his ability to flip field position with punting and kickoffs.

On the defensive live, Carlton Jones and Chris Terry return to anchor the end positions, but the return of Derrick Billups in the middle could be the X-factor up front.

“Bobby has been the most stable and consistent performer we’ve had over the last few years,” Barlow said. “He has NFL ability and we’re hoping he will continue to play well and be an asset for us.”

“Billups is the man in the middle,” Barlow said. “He’s a great story with him coming back with

SCHEDULE

The Hornets will play 12 games this season, highlighted by the season opener at home against Jacksonville State, a road game at SEC opponent Kentucky and hosting Stillman for the first time in the 90th Turkey Day Classic. “We talk all the time about the parity in our conference,” Barlow said. “Last year, several of the teams had new coaches and were adjusting to the SWAC. Now, those teams have a year under their belt and are headed in the right direction. To open SWAC play on the road against the two teams that played for the championship will be a real challenge.” Following the opener against the Gamecocks, Alabama State will begin conference play on the road with games at Eastern Division champion Jackson State and SWAC and Western Division champion Arkansas-Pine Bluff. The Hornets will open their home conference schedule with back-to-back games against Grambling State and Alcorn State. Alabama State starts October on the road at Texas Southern and home against Prairie View A&M. Following an open date, the Hornets will face archrival Alabama A&M in the 72nd State Farm Magic City Classic in Birmingham. ASU will begin November at Kentucky before finishing conference play at home against Southern and on the road at Mississippi Valley State. After an open date, the Hornets will host Stillman for the first time in the Turkey Day Classic. The Toyota SWAC Football Championship Game is Saturday, December 7 at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas.

Bethune-Cookman 38 Hornets 28 ORLANDO - The Alabama State football team lost the opening game of the 2012 season to Bethune-Cookman in the 8th MEAC-SWAC Challenge. Alabama State opened the season by taking the first drive of the season for a touchdown, marching 75 yards in 12 plays. Jenkins scored on a five-yard touchdown run to give the Hornets a 7-0 lead. Nick Martin recovered a muffed Bethune-Cookman punt at the 20yard line to set up the Hornets’ second score, a two-yard run by RB Isaiah Crowell to extend the lead to 14-0 with 4:28 to play in the first quarter. Alabama State scored early in the second quarter, quickly moving 72 yards in eight plays. Jenkins’ three-yard scoring run gave the Hornets a 21-0 lead with 13:45 to play in until halftime. After that, Bethune-Cookman scored 38 unanswered points over the next two-plus quarters to take a 38-21 lead with just under seven minutes remaining in the game. The Hornets ended the scoring with a 39-yard touchdown pass from Daniel Duhart to T.C. McWilliams. Despite leading 21-10 at halftime, the Hornets could not maintain the lead or re-establish momentum, as three turnovers by ASU helped contribute to 28 second-half points by Bethune-Cookman. Jenkins was voted the Hornets’ MVP of the game, completing 19 of 29 passes for 196 yards with no touchdowns and one interception while rushing for 39 yards on 15 carries with two touchdowns. Crowell rushed nine times for 18 yards, and McWiliams caught six passes for 89 yards and one touchdown.

ONE DREAM Isaiah Crowell and Greg Jenkins each rushed for a pair of first-half ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL touchdowns as Alabama State defeated Mississippi Valley State at Cramton Bowl. After going three-and-out to open the game, Alabama State scored on its next three possessions to take control of the game in the first quarter. Jenkins ended a five-play, 52-yard drive with a 14-yard scoring run to give Alabama State a 7-0 lead less than three minutes into the game. Crowell’s 15-yard touchdown run to the far right pylon ended an eight-play, 58-yard drive to give the Hornets a 14-0 lead with 4:32 remaining in the first quarter. On the ensuing play from scrimmage, ASU’s Edward Mosley forced a fumble that was recovered by Willie Roller and returned to the Valley 9-yard line. Jenkins’ scoring run on the next play extended Alabama State’s lead to 20-0 just 19 seconds later. FS Kejuan Riley became ASU’s modern era leader in interceptions with 18 with his third-quarter pick. He surpassed Emmanuel Martin (1989-91). Crowell scored his second touchdown in the second quarter on a three-yard run to end a seven-play, 55-yard drive to give Alabama State a 26-0 lead it would take to halftime.

ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

Hornets 19 Grambling St. 18 GRAMBLING, La. – Greg Jenkins’ 29-yard touchdown run with 4:15 to play gave Alabama State the victory over defending SWAC Champion Grambling State at Robinson Stadium. Jenkins’ scoring run was set up by P Bobby Wenzig’s 14-yard run from punt formation on 4th and 2 from the ASU 38-yard line. Three plays later, Jenkins knifed through the Grambling defense for the winning touchdown to complete the eight-play, 70-yard drive. The Hornets’ defense allowed just one first down on Grambling’s final drive and stopped the Tigers on downs with 2:48 remaining. Alabama State had taken a 13-12 lead early in the fourth quarter on Isaiah Crowell’s three-yard touchdown run with 12:49 remaining in the game. Grambling State came back with a touchdown on the ensuing drive on a 10-yard scoring pass from backup quarterback Frank Rivers to Anthony McGhee to take an 18-13 win with 6:41 remaining as the two-point conversion failed prior to Alabama State’s game-winning drive. Jenkins totaled 203 yards (138 passing, 65 rushing), accounting for two touchdowns (one passing, one rushing), while Crowell rushed 15 times for 98 yards and one touchdown. The Hornets’ defense allowed just 78 rushing yards against the Tigers, the lowest output yielded this season. WR T.C. McWilliams caught five passes for 56 yards and one touchdown, including three catches for 30 yards on the gamewinning drive.

Arkansas-Pine Bluff 24 Hornets 21 ONE TEAM

ONE DREAM The Alabama State football team dropped a three-point decision to ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL Arkansas-Pine Bluff at Cramton Bowl. Trailing 24-14 in the fourth quarter, Alabama State drove 69 yards in seven plays. Greg Jenkins’ 17-yard touchdown pass to Justin Robinson cut the Hornets’ deficit to 24-21 with 3:19 to play. After the Hornets’ defense held Arkansas-Pine Bluff to a threeand-out, Alabama State regained possession with 2:06 to play. The Hornets drove 43 yards in eight plays to get into scoring range, but Bobby Wenzig’s 44-yard field goal attempt with 56 seconds to play went wide right. Alabama State hurt itself with several dropped passes that could have gone for big plays, and committed 13 penalties for 115 yards. Trailing 7-0, the Hornets scored on their second drive of the second quarter. ASU drove 77 yards in eight plays, taking less than three minutes off the clock. The key play was a 23-yard pass from Jenkins to Darren Daniel to the UAPB 9-yard line. Two plays later, Isaiah Crowell’s four-yard touchdown run tied the score at 7-all with 5:07 to play until halftime. Opening the second half down 14-7, the Hornets begin the third quarter with a 10-play, 82-yard scoring drive. Malcolm Cyrus’ first career touchdown, a 13-yard run to the left far pylon, tied the score at 14-all with 10:26 to play in the third quarter.

ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

Hornets 54 Alcorn State 14 LORMAN, Miss. – Alabama State scored early, often and late to rout Alcorn State in the rain at Jack Spinks – Marino Casem Stadium. Alabama State’s defense and special teams combined to score three touchdowns in the game, while the offense was able to take advantage of additional Alcorn State special teams issues as Alabama State scored the most points since losing 64-58 in triple overtime to Tuskegee on Turkey Day 2007. Alabama State (3-2 overall, 3-1 Southwestern Athletic Conference) scored three first-quarter touchdowns, including two in a 20-second span. A bobbled punt snap by Alcorn gave the Hornets’ possession at the Braves’ 17-yard line. Three plays later, Greg Jenkins fired a 19-yard touchdown pass to T.C. McWilliams in the back of the end zone to take a 7-0 lead with 7:03 to play in the opening period. On the next play from scrimmage, Brandon Roberts forced a fumble at the Alcorn State nine-yard line that trickled into the end zone. Winton Steward recovered for a touchdown to extend the Hornets’ lead to 14-0. Alabama State’s defense extended the lead late in the first quarter. Leland Baker deflected a pass that was picked off by teammate DeAndre Rashada, who returned it 16 yards for a touchdown to give the Hornets a 21-0 lead with 16 seconds to play in the quarter. The defense came up with a fourth-down stop deep in Alabama State territory early in the second quarter, leading to a Hornet touchdown four plays later. Isaiah Crowell’s career-long 61-yard touchdown run gave Alabama State a 28-0 lead with 7:44 to play until halftime. Crowell rushed 16 times for a season-high 127 yards and one touchdown. A bobbled snap of another Alcorn punt attempt set up the Hornets’ next touchdown at the Braves’ seven-yard line, where RB Malcolm Cyrus’ scoring run on the next play gave Alabama State a commanding 34-0 lead with just under six minutes to play in the first half. After Alcorn State scored a pair of late first-half touchdowns, Alabama State scored on its opening drive of the third quarter. Jenkins completed a six-play, 63yard drive with an eight-yard touchdown run to increase the lead to 41-14. The Hornets added a pair of touchdowns less than a minute apart in the fourth quarter. Carey McKnight blocked an Alcorn punt, which was recovered by Corey Schofield in the end zone to extend the lead to 48-14 with just under 11:00 to play in the game.

Alabama State scored touchdowns on three consecutive drives in a 3:39 span of the second quarter. Crowell’s 63-yard run, a career long, came on the first play of the drive to give the Hornets a 7-0 lead with 7:56 to play until halftime.

ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

Hornets 35 Prairie View 21 PRAIRIE VIEW, Texas – Daniel Duhart completed 22 of 31 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns to rally Alabama State to a weather-delayed win at Blackshear Field. Duhart entered the game late in the first quarter in place of an injured Greg Jenkins and led Alabama State from a 14-point first quarter deficit with 20 second-quarter points. Duhart threw touchdown passes to T.C. McWilliams (13 yards) and Justin Robinson (12 yards) as Alabama State took at 20-14 halftime lead. Alabama State forced three turnovers in the final 2:36 of the first half to take its first lead. A fumble recovery by Marcus Berg at the PV 19-yard line led to the Duhart-to-Robinson scoring pass with 1:36 to play in the half to tie the game at 14-all. On the next Panthers’ drive, Maurice Tate’s interception at the PV 20 led to Bobby Wenzig’s 42-yard field goal to give the Hornets their first lead at 17-14 with 42 seconds to play in the half. Kejuan Riley’s interception and 58-yard return to the Panthers’ seven-yard line with three seconds to play left enough time for Wenzig’s 24-yard field goal on the final play of the second quarter for the halftime lead. The game was delayed for one hour and 50 minutes due to lighting and storms in the area of the Prairie View campus. The game was at halftime with both teams in the locker room when the delay began, as fans were evacuated to the William Nicks Building. After Prairie View regained the lead 21-20 late in the third quarter, the fourth quarter was all Hornets. After Alabama State thwarted the second of two Prairie View fake punt attempts, the Hornets drove 45 yards in four plays. Malcolm Cyrus’ 12-yard touchdown run and the two-point conversion pass from Duhart to Robinson gave Alabama State the lead for good, 28-21 with 9:05 remaining. On the ensuing possession, a fumbled PV punt attempt was recovered by Deontrelle Simon at the Panthers’ five-yard line, setting up Rodney Cross’ scoring run on the next play for the final margin.

Tuskegee 27 Hornets 25 Tuskegee turned four big plays into 20 points and knocked down a potential game-tying two point conversion with two minutes left to defeat Alabama Statein the 89th Turkey Day Classic. The exciting game between the two rivals was the opening game for the Hornets in their new on-campus stadium, which featured a sellout crowd in the first game. Isaiah Crowell’s one-yard run with 2:04 left capped a nine-play, 70- yard drive to bring the Hornets to within two points at 27-25. Greg Jenkins two pointconversion was tipped away from T.C. McWilliams in the back of the endzone and Tuskegee came away with the victory. After Bobby Wenzig’s 35-yard field goal midway through the third quarter cut the Tigers lead to 16-12, Tuskegee’s Derrick Washington took a pitch and ran toward the sideline before pulling up and throwing a halfback pass to Marquel Gardner. The play covered 57 yards and put the ball at ASU’s 19. Two plays later Justin Nared hit Kaleep Williams from 16 yards out for a touchdown. Tuskegee went for two and William Buford was able to convert the conversion and gave Tuskegee the largest lead of the game at 24-12. On the second play of the final quarter, Jenkins found Jarrett Neely from five yards out to cut the lead to 24-19 with plenty of time left. After that score Tuskegee put together their best drive of the game. The 15-play, 56 yard drive culminated with Eduardo Murillo’s 20 yard field goal that put the Tigers up 27-19. The drive took 8:59 off the clock and left ASU with 5:22 to work with leading up to their final score. Tuskegee was able to turn its first three big plays into scores in the first half on their way to a 16-9 halftime lead. On Tuskegee’s first possession, Nared was able to turn a third-and-17 play into a 42-yard long completion to Marquel Gardner. It was a pass that was tipped up in the air and Gardner grabbed the ball while on his back before it could hit the ground. That set the Tigers up on ASU’s 22 and Murillo ended the drive with his first field goal of the game from 22 yards out that gave Tuskegee at 3-0 lead.

ONE TEAM ONE DREAM ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

In 1920, eight men representing six colleges from the state of Texas met in Houston to discuss collegiate athletics and the many challenges facing their respective institutions. By the time the session concluded, they had founded an athletic league that went on to become one of the leading sports associations in the world of collegiate athletics, the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC). The Southwestern Athletic Conference’s current members include: Alabama A&M University (Huntsville, Ala.), Alabama State University (Montgomery, Ala.), Alcorn State University (Lorman, Miss.), Grambling State University (Grambling, La.), Jackson State University (Jackson, Miss.), Mississippi Valley State University (Itta Bena, Miss.), Prairie View A&M University (Prairie View, Texas), Southern University and A&M College (Baton Rouge, La.), Texas Southern University (Houston, Texas) and the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (Pine Bluff, Ark.). Former members of the SWAC include Bishop College (1920-56), Paul Quinn College (1920-29), Sam Houston College (1920-59), Texas College (192068), Wiley College (1920-68), Langston University (1931-57) and Arkansas AM&N (1936-70). The founding fathers of the original “Super Six” were C.H. Fuller of Bishop College; Red Randolph and C.H. Patterson of Paul Quinn College; E.G. Evans, H.J. Evans and H.J. Starns of Prairie View A&M; D.C. Fuller of Texas College; and G. Whitte Jordan of Wiley College. Paul Quinn became the first of the original members to withdraw from the league in 1929. When Langston University of Oklahoma was admitted into the conference two years later, it began the migration of state-supported institutions into the SWAC. Southern University entered the ranks in 1934, followed by Arkansas AM&N in 1936 and Texas Southern in 1954. Rapid growth in enrollment of the state-supported schools made it difficult for the church-supported schools to finance their athletics programs. One by one they fell victim to the growing prowess of the tax-supported colleges.

ONE TEAM ONE DREAM ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

The enter-exit cycle continued in 1961 when Texas College withdrew, followed by the admittance of Alcorn A&M in 1962. Wiley left in 1968, the same year Mississippi Valley State entered. Arkansas AM&N exited in 1970 and Alabama State entered in 1982. Arkansas-Pine Bluff (formerly Arkansas AM&N) rejoined the SWAC on July 1, 1997, regaining full-member status one year later. Alabama A&M became the conference’s 10th member when it became a full member in September 1999 after a one-year period as an affiliate SWAC member. Today, the SWAC ranks among the elite in the nation in terms of alumni playing with professional sports teams, particularly in the sport of football. On the gridiron, the conference has been the biggest draw on the Division I-AA level of the NCAA, leading the nation in average home attendance for 19 of the 20 years the I-AA division has been in existence. In fact, in 1994, the SWAC fell just 40,000 fans short of becoming the first non-Division I-A conference to attract one million fans to its home games. The SWAC’s ledger of alumni reads like a who’s who in college sports listings. Representing the SWAC in pro halls of fame are football stars Lem Barney (Jackson State/Detroit Lions), Mel Blount (Southern University/Pittsburgh Steelers), Willie Brown (Grambling State/Oakland Raiders), Buck Buchanan (Grambling State/Kansas City Chiefs), Willie Davis (Grambling State/Cleveland Browns and Green Bay Packers), Ken Houston (Prairie View A&M/Houston Oilers and Washington Redskins), David “Deacon” Jones (Mississippi Valley/ Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers and Washington Redskins), Walter Payton (Jackson State/Chicago Bears), Jackie Slater (Jackson State/Los Angeles and St. Louis Rams) and Charlie Joiner (Grambling State/Houston Oilers, Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers); baseball stars Lou Brock (Southern University/St. Louis Cardinals) and Bill Foster (Alcorn State/Negro Leagues), and basketball star Willis Reed (Grambling State/New York Knicks). Current championship competition offered by the SWAC includes men’s baseball, basketball, cross-country, football, golf, indoor track, outdoor track and field and tennis. Women’s competition is offered in basketball, bowling, cross-country, golf, indoor track, outdoor track and field, soccer, tennis and volleyball.

in conjunction with the ASU Office of Compliance office, strives for honor and dignity of fair play and the highest standards associated with intercollegiate athletics programs. “Representatives of Athletics Interests,” which include alumni, boosters and friends of Alabama State University, all have a key role in maintaining our standards under the guidelines of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). NCAA rules and regulations for “Representatives of Athletics Interests” Relationships are easily formed with ASU student-athletes, as fans watch and cheer them on in their competitions. Building these types of relationships is not only exciting for the fans, but also important in the lives of the student-athletes. In an effort to ensure the eligibility of every student athlete is not harmed, ASU’s Compliance Office shares these guidelines for what can and cannot be provided to our student-athletes: DOs • Provide an occasional meal in your home to a student-athlete or an entire team. You also may provide transportation to your home for the occasional meal. • Provide summer employment to a student-athlete, provided the athlete is paid the going rate and only for work actually performed. DON’Ts (among other things) • Give a gift of equipment or clothing • Arrange employment for a prospect’s relatives • Give cash or co-sign on loans • Provide free or reduced-cost housing • Provide free or reduced-cost services, rentals or purchases of any type • Provide use of an automobile • Provide or arrange any special discounts, credits or special payment arrangements (i.e. airline tickets, restaurant meals, cash) • Provide the parents, family or friends of a student-athlete with free admission to an Alabama State University or booster club recognition banquet • Provide tickets to an athletics, institutional or community event Intro to NCAA Compliance: Helpful Facts ONLY coaches and athletic department staff members are permitted to be involved in the recruiting process. • Alumni, friends and “other representatives of athletics interest” (boosters) who are not employed by the University are not permitted to contact a prospect or members of the prospect’s family by letter, telephone or in person

for the purpose of soliciting their participation in the athletic program. Alabama State faculty members are allowed to have contact with prospects, but only while they are on campus during unofficial or official visits. A student-athlete becomes a prospect... • When the student-athlete begins ninth-grade classes. Before the ninth grade, a student-athlete becomes a prospect if a college provides any financial aid or other benefits to the student-athlete (or the athlete’s relatives or friends) that the college does not provide to all prospective students. • A student-athlete is considered a “recruited” prospect at a particular college if any coach or representative of the school’s athletics interest (booster or representative) approaches a student-athlete or any family member about enrolling and participating in athletics at that college. Activities by coaches or boosters that cause a student-athlete to become a recruited prospect are: - Providing the student-athlete with an official visit - Placing more than one telephone call to the student-athlete or any other family member - Visiting the student-athlete or any other family member anywhere other than on the college’s campus Alabama State University’s Athletics Compliance Office monitors and verifies compliance with all NCAA, SWAC and University requirements. The office educates not only the athletics staff, administration and student-athletes, but also University faculty, staff and administration, as well as other individuals and entities with athletic interests. ASU is committed and compelled to uphold the principle of institutional control in the operation of its athletics department in a way that is consistent with the rules and regulations of the NCAA, SWAC and University. Everyone involved with Alabama State athletics, both inside and outside the University, has a role and responsibility to operate with accountability and integrity when it comes to compliance with NCAA rules and regulations. Communication is the key when it comes to understanding how each person fits within the structure of the NCAA’s rules and regulations.
