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.

THE LEGACY

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 cuttingedge 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.

Dr. Gwendolyn Elizabeth Boyd returned on February 1, 2014, to Alabama State University - her alma mater - as its new President, after an extraordinary career of leadership and public service that has spanned more than three decades in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area.

A nationally recognized champion of education, Boyd has spearheaded efforts across the nation and in other countries to help broaden the scope of educational offerings, especially as it relates to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) disciplines.

A Montgomery, Ala., native, Boyd earned her undergraduate degree from Alabama State University (ASU), with a major in mathematics and a double minor in physics and music. Upon graduation, Boyd received a fellowship to pursue graduate work at Yale University, where she was the first African-American female to earn a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from this Ivy League institution. She also has earned both the Master of Divinity and the Doctor of Ministry degrees from Howard University.

Because of her efforts in advancing education, Boyd was nominated by President Barack Obama and received U.S. Senate confirmation to serve as a trustee to the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation in 2009.

Boyd’s relationship with ASU actually began when she was a child, living just a few blocks away from the University. Despite her humble beginnings, Boyd excelled early and consistently as a student. Her life as a trailblazer began when, as a teenager, she was one of five black students chosen to integrate Montgomery’s Baldwin Junior High School. Continuing as a pioneer, she helped to establish an interracial council while at Jefferson Davis High School, was a member of the National Honor Society, performed in the school choir and graduated as valedictorian of her class in 1973. Boyd came to ASU on an academic scholarship, and in her words, the University “embraced me, invested in me and changed my life inexorably.” As a college student, her academic and leadership skills were evident, as she was inducted into Alpha Kappa Mu National Honor Society, Beta Kappa Chi Education Honor Society and Pi Mu Epsilon Mathematics Honor Society; pledged Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. and was the Beta Eta Chapter president on campus; was a member of and traveled with the Young Hearts gospel singers; was elected Miss Alabama State University (1976-77) and graduated summa cum laude in 1977. Boyd’s professional career at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) was highlighted by exemplary leadership and dedicated service. Early in her career, she was an analyst in the Strategic Systems Department, where she was part of engineering teams that conducted independent analyses and operational performance evaluations of Strategic Weapons Systems on Polaris, Poseidon and Trident submarines. In 1999, she became the Assistant for Development Programs and was later named Executive Assistant to the Chief of Staff at APL. In 1997, Boyd was selected to serve on the Johns Hopkins Diversity Leadership Council, and served as chair from 2001-2014, reporting directly to the President of Johns Hopkins University as the council worked on issues of diversity, inclusion, civility and respect across the various divisions of Johns Hopkins.

President Barack Obama has appointed Boyd to the President’s Advisory Commission on Educational Excellence for African-Americans. This Commission is charged with strengthening the nation by improving educational outcomes for African-Americans and to ensure that all African-Americans receive an education that prepares them for college, productive careers, and satisfying lives. Boyd also is a minister and an ordained itinerant elder in the AME Church. While in Maryland, she served on the ministerial staff of Ebenezer AME Church in Fort Washington, Md. In 2000, Boyd was elected to serve as the 22nd National President of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., an international organization of more than 250,000 members. Known as the “Technology President,” Boyd helped to establish technology in all facets of the sorority’s activities and administration. Her four-year tenure as president included a number of transformative accomplishments, including the launching of Project SEE (Science in Everyday Experiences), an initiative funded by a $1.6 million National Science Foundation grant with a goal of promoting math and science for middle school African-American girls. She also led the sorority’s humanitarian and education advocacy efforts in various parts of Africa, including Swaziland, Lesotho and Soweto, South Africa. In 2013, Boyd served as chair of the sorority’s Centennial Celebration, which involved organizing a year-long series of events culminating in a Washington, D.C.-based convention that drew more than 40,000 participants from around the world. Boyd is a lifelong community servant, having served on boards of local, national and international organizations, including the Links, Incorporated; Children’s National Health Center in Washington, D.C.; the National Partnership for Community Leadership; the United Way; and the APL Federal Credit Union. Her work has earned dozens of awardsand honors, including two honorary doctorates and Congressional recognitions. She has been honored with 23 Keys to various cities throughout the country, declarations of Gwendolyn E. Boyd Day in eight cities in the country, civic citations, and various leadership and volunteer awards, as well as professional awards for her achievements in the fields of engineering and higher education.

Thousands of young men have worn the black and gold jerseys and become Hornets for life! ASU hosts the nation’s oldest black college game (the Turkey Day Classic) and competes in the black college classic with the number one attendance (the Magic City Classic). ASU is regularly invited to participate in games and events across the country. The Hornets also boast a long list of players who have gone on to star in the NFL. Each week, the Mighty Marching Hornets storm the field at halftime to the delight of fans, as the ASU cheerleaders and the Hornet mascot energize the home crowd. And at the final horn — no matter the final score — the ASU fans stand with hands raised as the alma mater is played. FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIPS

Alabama State, O Mother Dear, Again we come to thee. Our pains and sorrows we forget, When e’er thy face we see O happy harbor, blessed place, O sweet and pleasant soil, In thee we hope, in thee we trust For thee we pray and toil.

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.

HEAD COACH REGGIE BARLOW ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

ONE TEAM ONE TEAM ONE TEAM ONE TEAM ONE TEAM ONE DREAMONE DREAM ONE DREAMONE DREAM ONE DREAM Reggie Barlow will enter his eighth season as the Hornets head coach, and the 10th season on the ASU staff. After serving two years as quarterbacks coach, Barlow took over the reins in 2007 and since then has become the Hornets third all-time winning coach in the history of Bama State football.

After building a foundation during his first three years at the helm, the last four years have seen Barlow lead ASU to four consecutive winning campaigns which hasn’t happened since the 1967-70 seasons. He has led the team to a 30-16 overall record during that time and a 27-9 conference record. Three of the past four seasons has seen the Alabama State University football program tied for the best record in the SWAC’s Eastern Division, earning a berth in the championship game in 2010. “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 play its second full season in New ASU Stadium, a sparkling new $62 million stadium which opened Thanksgiving Day 2012. “For our University, students and fans, it’s history in the making,” Barlow said of the 26,500seat venue which will again 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 our new stadium.” 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. Barlow’s success as a coach has been shown with his record on the field, but the SWAC recognized his performance as a player when he was inducted into the SWAC Hall of Fame in 2013. 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.

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 after Barlow’s retirement, the NFL has not forgotten about the former Pro Bowler. He has agreed to work as a representative of the NFL to be their spokesman in the NFL Play 60 initiative. He goes out and speaks to elementary children in the state of Alabama about the importance of eating healthy and staying active with exercise or play at least 60 minutes each day.

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 future NFL second-round draftee Tarvaris Jackson – currently a quarterback with the Seattle Seahawks whose team won the 2014 Super Bowl. In 2006, Barlow worked with a trio of quarterbacks without a 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.

Defensive Coordinator/Defensive Backs Kevin Ramsey is in his second season as Alabama State defensive coordinator, joining the Hornets from SWAC rival Texas Southern University, where he spent nearly four seasons with the program. It didn’t take long for Ramsey to put his hand print on the Hornets’ defense, as ASU improved to finish second among SWAC schools in scoring defense allowing 25.8 points per game. Ramsey’s attacking style of defense made it hard on the opposition’s running game as the Hornets only allowed a SWAC-best 110.1 yards rushing per game which not only led the SWAC but was 11th nationally. ASU led the SWAC in quarterback sacks with 50, a 4.17 per game average that placed ASU second among all FCS teams. Ramsey served in the same capacity for TSU from 2009-10, and during most of the 2012 season, after a stint as interim head coach in 2011. Ramsey’s Tigers led the FCS in total defense in both 2010 (204.9 ypg allowed) and 2011 (245.0 ypg allowed), and in fewest first downs allowed (140 in 2010, 141 in 2011).

Ramsey, who participated in NFL coaching internships with the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles, coached three seasons as secondary coach for the Arizona Cardinals (2000-02) before returning to the college ranks at Arizona State in 2003. Teams that Ramsey has coached have been to a number of bowl games including the Outback Bowl with Georgia in 2000, the Carquest Bowl in 1995 and Sugar Bowl in 1994 with Big East Champion West Virginia and two trips to the Citrus Bowl in 1996 and 1997, the Orange Bowl in 1998 and the Fiesta Bowl National Championship Game with Tennessee in January of 1999. Ramsey was a three-time All-Missouri Valley pick at defensive back while playing at Indiana State from 1980-83. He was a second team All-American as a senior and also played baseball for the Sycamores. He graduated from Indiana State with a degree in Physical Education in 1984. A native of East St. Louis, Illinois, Ramsey and his wife Doreen have four daughters: Kajavia, Samiya, Tresnae and Amariell.

His 2010 squad led the nation in six statistical categories: total defense, fewest first downs allowed, sacks (45), tackles for loss (112), lowest third down percentage allowed (22.5) and pass efficiency defense (78.9). Prior to Texas Southern, Ramsey spent five seasons as defensive coordinator at Carson-Newman (2004-08), where his units ranked in the top 20 in several national categories each season. Ramsey began his coaching career at Kansas State (1984-85) as a graduate assistant and junior varsity defensive coordinator at Mission High School in Mission, Texas (1986) before coaching at some of the nation’s biggest schools - Kansas State (198789, outside linebackers), Northwestern (1990-92, defensive line/ defensive backs), West Virginia (1993-94, defensive backs), Tennessee (1995-98, defensive backs), Georgia (1999, defensive coordinator) and Michigan State (2000, defensive backs).

Associate Head Coach/Offensive Line The longest tenured coach on the ASU staff, Antonio Bradford is in his 10th year on the Hornet coaching staff. Last season, he returned to coaching the offensive line, a position he coached from 2008-11. Bradford’s offensive line opened the hole for the Hornet runners to the tune of a SWAC-leading 231.5 yards per game, good enough for 14th among the Football Championship Series (FCS) schools. Bradford is also the video coordinator for the Hornets. Among his responsibilities include creating tapes for coaches to grade performances and to prepare game plans for upcoming opponents. Bradford was a three-year starter at left guard at Alabama State from 2002 to 2004. His teams won back-to-back Eastern Division titles in 2003 and 2004, and won the ASU’s second SWAC football championship in 2004. Bradford was a member of an offense that was the most prolific in America and featured – among others – former Alabama State standout Tarvaris Jackson, who went on to be drafted by the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings in the second round in 2006, and current member of Super Bowl 48 champion Seattle Seahawks. Bradford, who began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at ASU, holds a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice, and a master’s degree in general counseling. He is married to his wonderful wife, Faith.

Defensive Line

DeMarco McNeil is in his third season on the Hornets’ coaching staff after serving as a coaching intern at the University of Tennessee in 2011. McNeil has been able to mold the Hornets defensive line into one of the top defensive fronts in the SWAC. In 2013 McNeil had molded a deep front four that played six players in all 12 games with one player playing in 11 games and another playing in nine. That depth helped the Hornets maintain their freshness through each game which saw the Hornets front four constantly in the opponent’s backfield.

sacks (-190 yards), 10 pass break ups, 26 quarterback hurries, nine forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries. He was an All-SEC defensive tackle at Auburn, where he was a fouryear starter and was named to Auburn’s All-Decade team. McNeil was named Alabama’s Mr. Football coming out Mattie T. Blount High in Prichard, Ala. Following his playing career at Auburn, McNeil spent two seasons as the defensive line coach at Birmingham Southern for two years (2009-10). He entered the coaching ranks as a graduate assistant at Auburn (2007-08), where he was a dominant defensive player for the Tigers. McNeil and his wife Lanicia have two daughters, Madison and Allison.

ASU’s defensive front finished last season with 72 tackles behind the line of scrimmage for a -193 yards. They also combined for 28

Linebackers

Dominique Stevenson is in his fourth season on the Alabama State coaching staff, his second coaching the Hornet’s linebackers. Stevenson has molded the Hornets linebackers into one of the top linebacking corps in the SWAC. Last season the three starting linebackers were ASU’s top three tacklers. Kourtney Berry led the Hornets and was second in the SWAC with 105 tackles, Leland Baker’s 88 stops had him tied for 10th in the SWAC, and Daerius Washington was 14th with 82 total tackles. Under Stevenson’s leadership, Kourtney Berry turned his freshman season into a year which saw him named the SWAC’s Newcomer of the Year and a First-Team All-SWAC performer.

Stevenson went to LSU after working the 2008 season at Southern Methodist University, where he was a volunteer linebackers coach. After being drafted in the seventh round of the 2002 NFL Draft, Stevenson played parts of five seasons (2002-06) with the Buffalo Bills and Washington Redskins. A four-year letterman and three-year starter at the University of Tennessee (1997 -2001), Stevenson won a national championship with the Volunteers in 1998, and was a second-team All-SEC selection as a senior. He attended Gaffney High in Gaffney, S.C., and graduated from the University of Tennessee with a BA degree in Urban Studies in 2001. He is married to his wonderful wife Angela, and they are the proud parents of two sons, Dominique and Jacob-Zion.

Stevenson spent his first two seasons as the Hornets’ safeties coach, helping Kejuan Riley to become the school’s all-time leader in interceptions with 21 and earning Consensus All-America honors. Stevenson came to Alabama State after spending two years as an intern coach at LSU, where he helped mentor linebacker Perry Riley, who was a fourth-round NFL draft pick in 2010 to the Washington Redskins, 2011 NFL first-round draft pick defensive back Patrick Peterson with the Arizona Cardinals, who also was a First Team All-SEC selection and Thorpe Award Winner, and freshman All-American Tyrann Mathieu, who went on to be a fourth-round pick by the Arizona Cardinals.

The Hornets have proven to be one of the top teams in the Southwestern Athletic Conference over the past four years, finishing at the top of the Eastern Division three times earning a berth in the 2010 SWAC Championship game. This year the Hornets will again strive for that lofty perch the rest of the conference has seen them sit as they have 63 lettermen and 16 starters returning from a team that finished 8-4 in 2013 and 7-2 in conference action. After winning four games in the first full season in the Hornets new home stadium, ASU will again host six games in the allimpressive $62 million New ASU Stadium. “It has brought great excitement, the guys have embraced it, and it is a different mindset and feeling when you go over to the stadium,” Head Coach Reggie Barlow said. “All over the country and around the state, people know about it and everybody is asking about it.”

“When you are recruiting guys they want to know where are they going to play and where are they going to stay, where’s your weight room, etc. We can take them over there and it has definitely helped us. It’s a great feeling when you’re able to bring them on campus and take them over to the stadium.”

OFFENSE

The Hornets averaged over 30 points per game last season and was one of the top rushing teams in all of the FCS averaging over 235 yards per game. ASU did show it had a balanced offense as the Hornets threw for 2,384 yards in 2013 averaging almost 200 yards per game. With seven returning starters, the Hornets are looking to once again be one of the top offenses in the SWAC. It all starts on the offensive line and the Hornets are looking to replace four-year starter and All-SWAC honoree Edmond Davis at center which is a tall task to order, but the Hornets do

ASU has two returning quarterbacks that saw plenty of action over the course of the season, including starter Daniel Duhart (6-0, 193). He threw for 1,903 yards and 18 touchdowns while completing over 54 percent of his passes. He also ran for 161 yards.

have plenty of experience with nine returners and four starters returning along the offensive line. Matthew Bates (6-3, 305) and Tovar Allen (6-6, 315) return to the tackle positions while Robert “Rock” Roquemore (6-5, 313) and Damian Love (6-4, 295) return to the guard spots. Kerry Williams (6-2, 300) has been given the tall order of running the offensive line while replacing Davis at center.

Quinteris Toppings (6-1, 220) stepped in as a freshman last season and played in three games. He found himself in a tough situation when he had to step into the game against Prairie View after injuries to the two quarterbacks in front of him. All he did was lead ASU to a overtime win and in the process was named the SWAC Newcomer of the Week. “It is good we have two talented guys back there at quarterback and both have played a lot of football,” Barlow said. “They have another year in the system under their belt and should be better players this fall.”

“I like the depth we have on offense and I liked the competition we had at the offensive line position during spring,” Barlow said.

Whomever the quarterback is going to be they are going to have plenty of talented running backs to hand the ball off to. Even though ASU lost All-American Isaiah Crowell, the Hornets have five talented runners back led by Malcolm Cyrus (5-10, 180). He heads into his senior season coming off a year which saw him run for 759 yards and six touchdowns, averaging 5.8 yards per rush. He played through injuries the second part of the season but only missed one game during that time. He has over 1,200 career yards rushing and 11 touchdowns.

“Jylan is someone who stepped up and showed us this spring he can be a guy we can roll in there. We can even be creative with moving Tovar (Allen) to guard and letting Jylan play some tackle at times.”

Jahaad Coleman (5-9, 185) is a hard-running junior that was named the Most Valuable Offensive Player in the seasonending Turkey Day Classic. He finished the year with 207 yards rushing and three scores while averaging 6.5 yards per carry.

The other experienced linemen are Darius Preyer (6-3, 280), Andre Hammon (6-4, 272), Demechery Hickingbottom (6-4, 320), Jylan Ware (6-6, 260) and Tony Jacob (6-8, 342).

Khalid Thomas (5-9, 175) and Andre Kincey (5-9, 180) are both back and are both talented, and probably would start on most of the other teams on the Hornets schedule. They are quick and elusive and can go the distance each time they touch the ball. “Malcolm (Cyrus) can do it all. He can run for power, he can run for speed on the edge,” Barlow said. “He protects well and can catch the ball. With (Andre) Kincey, Khalid and Jahaad Coleman, we have solid guys behind him.” ASU has seven returning receivers including the top two receiving leaders in Earl Lucas (5-8, 160) and DeMario Bell (6-3, 180). Lucas finished with a team-high 51 receptions. He had 515 yards and scored three times. Bell had a team-high 594 yards receiving on 30 catches with three touchdowns. His 19.8 yards per catch also led the team.

Cyrus did a good job out of the backfield with 17 receptions for 174 yards and Myles Everett (5-10, 170) caught nine balls for 117 yards and two touchdowns while Marcus Gamble (6-3, 200) had eight catches for 92 yards and two scores. “We have guys like Earl Lucas and DeMario Bell who can make plays on the edge,” Barlow said. “We have other guys that have good speed to stretch the defense, so we like what we have on offense.” ASU has two sophomores returning that are talented and can give the opposing defenses a lot of problems with their size, speed and running ability. Brandon Barnes (6-6, 230) played in 11 games a season ago and only caught two balls, but both were for touchdowns. Wyndell Archie (6-3, 280) played in three games and will see more time this season on the field.

DEFENSE

Back to lead the group and man the middle of the defense will be sophomore Kourtney Berry (6-0, 215), who took the SWAC by storm last season. He finished the year with 105 tackles to lead ASU and was second in the conference. He had seven sacks and 12.5 TFL while also recovering two fumbles and picking off a pass. He was named the SWAC Newcomer of the Year while also garnering First Team All-SWAC honors.

The opposition’s failure to run the ball against ASU’s defense last season started on the defensive line and with seven of the top eight defensive linemen returning, that stat may be even better this season.

Daerius Washington (6-0, 205) cannot be overlooked. He returns to his outside linebacker position. The junior finished with 80 tackles, with 6.5 behind the line. He also had an interception he returned for a score against Grambling and he recovered two fumbles.

ASU’s defense has been one of the top defenses in the SWAC for several years and it looks like that may be the case again this season with nine starters returning on that side of the ball. They were second in the conference in scoring defense (25.8 ppg) and led the conference in rushing defense (110.1 ypg).

All-SWAC linemen Edward Mosley (6-3, 256) and Derrick Billups (6-3, 308) will return to lead the down linemen, but Justin Mitchell (6-3, 305), Chris Terry (6-4, 250) and Roderick “Ghost” Henderson (6-3, 330) cannot be overlooked. Billups and Mosley go into the season as two of the top offensive disrupters in the conference. Billups finished last season with five sacks and 13 tackles behind the line of scrimmage while Mosley seven sacks and eight tackles for loss. Mosley also had six pass break ups and six quarterback hurries. Mitchell and Henderson were the other defensive linemen that made it hard for the opposition to get any yards up the middle of the field. Mitchell’s line of work included three sacks, seven TFL’s, forcing two fumbles and recovering two, one of which he returned for a 40-yard score in ASU’s win over Prairie View. Henderson may have been the best reserve defensive linemen in the SWAC. He finished the year with 33 tackles, with 8.5 of those behind the line of scrimmage. “Our defense goes off the mode of 212, that’s 212 degrees, that’s what they want to make you feel like,” Barlow said. “They are an aggressive group and it’s anchored by our defensive lineman. That is a big group of guys. I like the physicality we have up front and the speed they have.” BAMASTATESPORTS.COM

ASU is looking at several other linebackers to have an impact this season in Deontrelle Silmon (6-4, 210), Kadeem “Poncho” Thomas (6-0, 230) and Will Roller (6-2, 230). “Our linebackers are not overly big guys, but they are guys that are tough and can run,” Barlow said. “They are led by Kourtney (Berry) who did all kinds of stuff his freshman year. Silmon is coming into his own and doing some good things. Washington has been consistent and I think we have good back ups with Poncho (Kadeem Thomas) and Will Roller. It should be a good group.” The coaching staff went into spring practice looking to shore up the Hornets secondary. While they are a talented group they did not always show that talent on the field. ASU does have all four returning starters coming back and have several young players that could work their way into the rotation. Najee Bright (6-2, 180) returns as free safety and was the team’s leader in interceptions with four to go along with his 65 tackles. Deandre Rashada (6-1, 195) was the team’s fourthleading tackler with 76, but the coaches are looking for him to improve on his one interception from his strong safety position. Nick Martin (6-0, 175) and Bradley Street (6-0, 183) return to

Pressley has done some good things for us and Trey Jenkins has come along. That group should be pretty good.”

SCHEDULE

Once again the Hornets will face one of the most challenging schedules in the SWAC. ASU will hit the road to open the season at perennial Football Championship Series (FCS) power Sam Houston State on August 30. The Bearkats have 53 letterwinners returning from a 2013 team that advanced to the second round of the FCS playoffs before a 30-29 loss to fourth-ranked Southeastern Louisiana.

ASU lost two-time All-American and three-time All-SWAC pick Bobby Wenzig to graduation. Replacing him will not be an easy task for the Hornets since he was the primary kicker, punter and place kicker the last three years.

Things will not get any easier in the second game of the season as the Hornets will open the home portion of the year hosting Tennessee State University at New ASU Stadium on Sept. 6. The Tigers will roll into Montgomery fresh off a 2013 season which saw the Sheridan Poll name them the 2013 Black College Football Champions. TSU won a first round FCS Playoff game over Butler before falling to second-ranked Eastern Illinois in the second round.

ASU does have Alex Louthan (5-10, 210) returning. He was able to see action in eight games, handling both kick off and kicking duties as Wenzig nursed an injury part of the year. Louthan hit two of his six field goals during the season and was a perfect 20-20 on his PAT’s. He also averaged 56.8 yards per kickoff.

The Hornets will jump into SWAC action hosting Mississippi Valley State (Sept. 13). ASU will play a pair of Thursday night contests which will be broadcast by ESPNU. The first of those will be ASU’s home game against Arkansas-Pine Bluff (Sept. 18). The Hornets will then host Texas Southern (Sept. 27) before hitting the road for the next two weeks.

“Bobby could have very easily been our most valuable player the last two or three years,” Barlow said. “He could change field position, kicking off and punting, and that is a huge loss for us. We were grateful to get Alex and get him some experience last year. I think he really improved this spring. I thought the ball jumped off his foot on field goals and he did a pretty good job punting. We were blessed to get two solid kickers in recruiting we think will be able to come in here and give us a good opportunity to pick up where we left off with Bobby.”

Starting that road trip will be another Thursday night game against an always-tough match up with Alcorn State (Oct. 2) in Lorman, Miss. on ESPNU. A week later the Hornets will make their second trip of the season to Texas as they play at Prairie View A&M (Oct. 11).

SPECIAL TEAMS

The Hornets have the luxury of returning one of the top return specialists in the conference in Myles Everett (5-10, 170). He finished the season with 19 punt returns for 122 yards for a 6.4 return average, but it was his returns of kick-offs that were impressive. He had 660 yards on 29 kickoff returns, averaging

Following the PVAMU game, the Hornets will get a muchneeded week off before facing Alabama A&M in the 73rd State Farm Magic City Classic (Oct. 25) in Birmingham. ASU will look to continue their recent success against AAMU winning three of the last four Classics. The Hornets will be back on the road at Southern (Nov. 1) before returning to New ASU Stadium to face Jackson State (Nov. 8).

For the second consecutive season, the Hornets will host Stillman College for the 91st Turkey Day Classic. ASU has won two of the past three Classics and this year’s Classic has been moved from its former playing day of Thanksgiving to the following Saturday which is Nov. 22. “I thought last year was tough when we opened with Jacksonville State and Jackson State, but this year is a tougher start with Sam Houston and then Tennessee State,” Barlow said. “Sam Houston has been great for a lot of years. They sit there in Texas and get a lot of transfers; they have a bunch of talent, and really great coaches. We will have our work cut out for us.” “I think if we are going to have a tough schedule and we are going to play tough teams I think this will be the group I would want to do it with,” Barlow said. “In my eight years of coaching this group of guys here I think could play at a Sam Houston or Tennessee State. It will be a great challenge to see how we measure up against two really good teams that have consistently been at the top. Tennessee State has great tradition and history. They have been at the top of their conference a long time.” “Of course we also have a tough nine-game schedule against our SWAC competition. There has always been great competition in the conference and it shows as there have been four different champions the past four years. Then we get to end our season in the Turkey Day Classic against Stillman who has always been a good team and they came in here last year and gave us a great game. We have a challenging 12-game schedule this season and it will be exciting to see how it turns out.”

ASU played what may have been their most challenging schedule in the history of the program, starting out hosting Jacksonville State. What most people did not realize after the 24-22 loss to the Gamecocks was the fact Jacksonville State was one of the top teams in the Football Championship Series (FCS) and was a quarterfinalist in the FCS Playoffs, and was ranked 10th in the final FCS poll. Things did not get any easier as ASU went on the road to face a Jackson State team that completed the season as the SWAC East Division Champions and only lost one game during the regular season conference race. ASU lost 30-23 in another close game. Following the JSU loss, the Hornets won six consecutive games beginning with another close win 40-39 win at defending SWAC champ Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

After a 90 minute weather delay, Alabama State and Jacksonville State were able to get started and the wait led to an exciting finish that saw ASU’s comeback fall just short in a 24-22 decision. The Hornets had fallen behind 24-9 entering the fourth quarter, but was able to push across two touchdowns in a four minute span to cut the lead to 24-22. ASU went for two and the tie, but Jarrett Neely’s reverse pass fell just short in the end zone and ASU still trailed 24-22 with 7:33 left in the game. ASU’s final drive started on their 25 with 2:48 left in the game. Over the next eight plays ASU moved the ball to JSU’s 20 yard line, but ran into problems from there. After a delay of game penalty and a quarterback sack, the Hornets faced a second and 20 from JSU’s 30. Duhart who had already completed two passes in the drive, threw a slant pass that JSU cornerback Brenton Tolson made a diving interception to halt the comeback and seal the victory for JSU. JSU had a big third quarter scoring all of their 24 points in the period over an 11 minute span to turn a 6-0 halftime deficit into the 24-9 lead. Max Shortell, JSU’s transfer from Minnesota at quarterback, led the big quarter with his throwing. He finished the game throwing for 216 yards on 13 of 23 passing with one score. Trailing 24-9, the Hornets forced two turnovers in the fourth quarter to get back into the game. Maurice Tate caused the first turnover with an interception he returned to JSU’s six yard line. Jahaad Coleman scored on the next play and after the extra point ASU trailed 24-16. The second turnover came on a JSU muffed a punt that ASU’s Marquis Lovett recovered at JSU’s 15 yard line. Two plays later Duhart hit Chris Gilzeane from eight yards out to cut the lead to two, but that would be the final points of the game even though the final seven minutes were very exciting.

PINE BLUFF, ARK. - Jamel Johnson’s 21 yard touchdown pass from Daniel Duhart capped a 16-point fourth quarter as ASU came from behind to beat Arkansas-Pine Bluff. To say it was a game of runs would not give the game justice as ASU opened the game scoring the first 21 points of the game. UAPB would then out score ASU 32-3 to enter the final quarter with a 32-24 lead. ASU would end the game on a 16-7 run with the Johnson’s final touchdown coming with just over four minutes left. His score followed an Isaiah Crowell five yard scoring run and a Bobby Wenzig 30 yard field goal. Following ASU’s final score, the Hornets defense still had to stop the Lions offense which finished the game with 482 yards one last time. They were able to do that with three consecutive sacks; two from Edward Mosley and one from Carlton Jones. ASU finished the game with 475 yards and for the third straight game rushed for over 200 yards. Crowell led the way with a game high 161 yards on a career high 29 carries.Malcolm Cyrus had 82 and Duhart 32. Duhart finished the game hitting 19 of his 22 pass attempts for 200 yards and two scores. For the second time this season DeMario Bell had over 100 yards in receptions, finishing with 102 on six receptions. Earl Lucas had a game high seven catches for 47 yards and a score. On defense, Kourtney Berry had the best game of his young career with 15 tackles. He had a sack, tackle for loss and an interception, which led to a Hornet score. Najee Brighthad 10 tackles and forced a fumble. The game started ASU’s way scoring three times in the first quarter. The first coming on Duhart’s 19 yard pass to Lucas, and the second on Cyrus’ career-long 33 yard run. The final score was Crowell’s 25 yard scoring run following Berry’s interception. The second quarter saw UAPB get back into the game first on a three yard pass from Benjamin Anderson to Brandon Kensey.

ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

MONTGOMERY - Isaiah Crowell rushed for a career-high four touchdowns to lead Alabama State to a 49-30 win over Alcorn State in Southwestern Athletic Conference action. The win was the third straight for Alabama State after dropping their first two games of the season. After scoring three times in the first half, Crowell opened the scoring in the second half on ASU’s first offensive play. Leland Baker recovered an Alcorn fumble on the first play of the second half and Crowell’s one yard run put ASU up 35-7. That would be the only score of the third quarter. On the first play of the fourth quarter Daniel Duhart found Brandon Barnes from eight yards out to push ASU’s lead out to 42-7. ASU’s final score came on a Rodney Cross four yard run to push the lead out to 49-13. On a night when ASU’s (3-2/3-1 SWAC) passing game was off mark, the rushing game finished the game with 297 yards. ASU had over 300 yards rushing, but on their final offensive play a bad snap over the quarterback’s head dropped their rushing just under 300 yards. ASU has now rushed for over 200 yards in each game this season. Crowell finished the game with 133 yards on 19 carries. Rodney Cross had career-highs in carries (13) and yards (67). Malcolm Cyrus finished the game with 60 yards on nine carries. Duhart finished the game completing eight of his 18 passes for 74 yards and one score. Arsenio Favor completed his only pass of the game for 19 yards. Defensively Kourtney Berry once again led the Hornets with 13 total tackles (7 solo, 6 assists). He also had a sack and two tackles for loss. His fumble recovery and 30 yard return in the first quarter led to Crowell’s first touchdown. Deandra Rashada finished with 10 tackles (6 solo, 4 assists). ASU’s defense had four sacks and 12 tackles for losses. They also forced four turnovers with three fumble recoveries and an interception by Najee Bright. ASU’s defense held the vaulted running game of Alcorn (3-2/2-1 SWAC) to 114 yards, 50 yards less than their per-game average. They held Alcorn’s leading rusher, Arnold Walker, to only 60 yards on 14 carries.

HOUSTON - Daniel Duhart threw for 223 yards and a career-high three touchdowns to lead Alabama State to it’s fourth consecutive win.

MONTGOMERY - Malcolm Cyrus culminated a career-day with a seven yard run in overtime to propel Alabama State to a 48-42 win over Prairie View in a game featuring the top two offenses in the Southwestern Athletic Conference. The game featured five ties, seven lead changes, 90 points, 185 offensive plays and 1,324 yards before ASU could claim the victory in the first overtime period. Cyrus finished the game with 241 yards rushing on 24 carries with two scores. He finished with 301 total yards as he caught four passes for 60 yards. His carry and yardage total along with his 80 yard touchdown run were all career-highs. Quinterius Toppings stepped into the quarterback role after Favor was injured and completed 11 of his 18 pass attempts for 157 yards and a score. He led ASU on five scoring drives in making his first appearance of the season and his career. ASU finished with 639 yards of total offense. The Hornets rushed for 346 yards rushing; marking the first time they have rushed for over 300 yards in a game, but continued their streak of rushing for over 200 yards in each game this year. The Hornets passed for 293 yards completing 20 of their 31 passes and also throwing two touchdown passes. Defensively Leland Baker led ASU with a game and career-high 17 tackles. He also had 3.5 tackles behind the line of scrimmage (-11 yards) and had 1.5 sacks (-8 yards). Nicholas Martin had 13 tackles, Deandra Rashada 12 and Michael Showers and Deontrelle Silmon had 10 apiece. ASU finished the game with 13 tackles behind the line of scrimmage (-52 yards) and 5.0 sacks (-35 yards). PVAMU quarterback Jerry Lovelocke entered the game only being sacked four times the entire season. After coming out at halftime with a tie score at 21, ASU scored two touchdowns to take a 35-21 lead. The first came on Cyrus’s career-long 80 yard run and the next coming a little over three minutes later when Isaiah Crowell scored from a yard out. PVAMU scored twice to even the game at 35. Right before the end of the third quarter Courtney Brown caught a six yard scoring pass from Lovelocke, who finished the game with 533 yards passing. PVAMU then score again when Lovelock hit Jacoby Anderson from 10 yards out. ASU regained the lead with 7:48 left in the game when defensive lineman Justin Mitchell picked up a Lovelocke fumble and rambled 40 yards giving ASU a 42-35 lead. After an exchange of punts, PVAMU took over on their own five yard line with 3:32 left in the game and drove 95 yards to score the tying touchdown with just 20 seconds left in the game.

BIRMINGHAM - Daniel Duhart threw for 301 yards and three scores and Malcolm Cyrus rushed for 127 to lead Alabama State to a win over Alabama A&M in the 72nd State Farm Magic City Classic. Duhart struggled early only connecting on four of his first 10 attempts, before settling down in the second quarter and going 9 for 16 the rest of the way. ASU held a 14-0 lead before Kourtney Berry intercepted a pass early in the third quarter and the Hornets came up with a fumble recovery on their own one yard line to stop an AAMU scoring threat. Neither team scored in the third quarter, but Duhart hooked up with Earl Lucas from 39 yards out early in the fourth quarter to put ASU up 21-0 and in reality, put the game out of reach. After giving up the Bulldogs lone score with 11 minutes left in the game, ASU scored ended the scoring with two more scores. Bobby Wenzig connected from 28 yards out and Rodney Cross scored on a two yard run with just under four minutes left. ASU finished the game with 451 yards against the SWAC’s top defensive team. ASU rushed for 150 yards, marking the first time the Hornets did not break the 200 yard rushing plateau this season. Defensively, ASU held AAMU to 334 yards while forcing three turnovers.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Alabama State University’s football team traveled to Lexington to face the University of Kentucky looking to become the first member of the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) to defeat a Southeastern Conference (SEC) school, but Kentucky made sure that did not happen in a 48-14 victory. Isaiah Crowell led the Hornets in rushing with 84 yards on 12 carries and added a touchdown run, but the Hornets only ran for 149 yards against the bigger Wildcats on 38 carries. ASU’s passing game threw for 148 yards as three different Hornets completed passes, but as a team, only completed 12 of 28. Duhart led the group completing eight of his 23 pass attempts for 97 yards and a touchdown. Jamel Johnson was ASU’s leading receiver with five catches for a gamehigh 97 yards. He also scored on a 68 yard pass from Duhart in the second half. It was the longest reception of his ASU career. Leland Baker led ASU’s defense with 10 stops (8 solo, 2 assists) and added a sack and two tackles for losses. The Hornets defense lived up to its reputation of putting pressure on the offense and finished the game with three sacks (-26 yards) and 10 tackles behind the line of scrimmage (-45 yards). ASU hurt itself with five fumbles, losing two and a partially blocked punt. Those problems led to 17 Kentucky points, including a fumble with less than a minute left in the first half which led to a field goal on the final play of the first half, and a fumble on the second play of the second half which led to a touchdown.

The Alabama State University football team lost to Southern at the New ASU Stadium. A 43-yard touchdown run by Isaiah Crowell with 1:29 remaining helped Alabama State tie the score at 28-28. However, a 64-yard kickoff return by Southern’s Jaleel Richardson led to Greg Pittman’s 43-yard field goal with 18 seconds remaining. The game started fast, as touchdowns were scored on the opening three possessions. Myles Everett’s 47-yard return to start the game led to a four-play, 39-yard drive that led to a 23-yard touchdown pass from Daniel Duhart to Jamel Johnson to put the Hornets ahead 7-0 less than one minute into the game. After Southern scored on its first possession, Alabama State responded on the ensuing possession. Driving 74 yards in 11 plays, DeMario Bell’s 11-yard touchdown catch put the Hornets back in front, 14-7 with just over eight minutes to play in the first quarter. Alabama State extended its lead in the second quarter. A 13-play, 69-yard drive was capped by Crowell’s first touchdown run of the day, a five-yard scamper, that gave the Hornets a 21-7 lead. Southern closed the gap to 21-14 prior to halftime, and, after a scoreless third quarter, took the lead in the fourth. The Jaguars scored on touchdown passes to Mike Jones of 74 and 13 yards to take a 28-21 lead with 7:38 to play in the game. The Hornets tied the score two possessions later. Taking over at its own 23 with 2:51 remaining, Alabama State drove 77 yards in only five plays. On fourth and three from the Southern 43, Crowell took a handoff around the left side and ran 43 yards for a touchdown to tie the game, leading to the dramatic finish . Crowell went over the 1,000-yard mark on the season in the game, rushing for 145 yards and a pair of touchdowns to lead Alabama State.

ITTA BENA, Miss. - On a day when the Alabama State University offense struggled on the football field, the Hornet’s defense stepped up, scored a touchdown and held Mississippi Valley State to one score on their way to victory. ASU had their worse offensive game of the season as MVSU’s defense made the Hornets offense struggle from the get go. ASU only ran for 75 yards on 36 carries and the passing game was off as well throwing for 128 yards picking up 203 total yards. MVSU was not much better as they only managed 67 yards rushing and threw for 211 yards in picking up 278 yards of total offense. ASU’s defense had three total sacks with Derrick Billups grabbing 1.5 (-8 yards) of those. In fact, Billups had his best game of the year finishing with nine total tackles with 6.5 of those coming behind the line of scrimmage (-28 yards). Along with the three sacks the Hornets’ defense came up with 13 tackles behind the line of scrimmage which resulted in another 52 yards of lost yardage. Edward Mosley came up with a fumble recovery and Deandre Rashada and Najee Bright teamed for what may have been the tide-turning play on the final play of the first half when Bright intercepted the ball on ASU’s 25 and began to weave his way down field. At MVSU’s 15 yard line he flipped the ball back to Rashada who was able to go the final 15 yards and dove into the endzone for the score after the horn had sounded. The extra point was blocked, but ASU led 12-7 going into halftime. There was only one score in the second half and that came from the arm of Daniel Duhart who hit Jamel Johnson from 15 yards out late in the third quarter.

MONTGOMERY - Jahaad Coleman’s 78 yard touchdown run with 1:32 left in the game gave Alabama State the cushion they needed in a win over Stillman in the 90th edition of the Turkey Day Classic. Coleman, who was named the game’s Most Valuable Offensive Player, finished the game with career-highs in carries (17), yards (150) and touchdowns (2). He averaged 8.8 yards per carry as helped ASU finish with 306 yards rushing for the game. Freshman running back Khalid Thomas also had a career-night running the football as he carried the ball 18 times for 82 yards. He also had a long run of 19 yards, all career-highs. Daniel Duhart completed 15 of his 27 passes for 186 yards and two scores. Along with the rushing yards ASU finished the game with 492 total yards. Defensively, Kourtney Berry, Leland Baker and Deandra Rashada all finished with eight stops each. Berry, who was named the Defensive Player of the Game, also had a sack, a tackle for loss and quarterback hurry. Stillman did a good job of getting rid of the ball quickly in passing situations, as the Hornets had a season-low two sacks, but again Stillman only rushed for 126 yards and 30 of those yards came in the final drive when the quarterback was scrambling away from ASU’s rush. ASU had to come from behind after Stillman scored two touchdowns in 15 seconds early in the third quarter. ASU came out of the halftime locker room with a 21-14 lead. That changed when Stillman quarterback Torrance Moise hit Dondre Purnell from 77 yards out on the third play of the second half. After kicking off to ASU Greg Abrams intercepted Duhart on the next offensive play and returned the pick 33 yards for a score and a Stillman 28-21 lead. ASU came right back down the field to even the score at 28 when Duhart lofted a pass up in the endzone and the Hornets 6’4” tight end Brandon Barnes out jumped the defenders for the ball and the score.

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.

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.

Bishop withdrew from the conference in 1956, Langston in 1957 and Sam Houston in 1959, one year after the admittance of two more state-supported schools – Grambling College and Jackson College.

REMEMBER: ASK BEFORE YOU ACT. The Alabama State University Athletic Department, 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. Any questions regarding NCAA rules and regulations, especially those dealing with prospects and student-athletes, should be directed to the ASU Office of Compliance by calling 334-229-4517. The ASU athletic program needs your help and support, so please cooperate to ensure success for the Hornets, on and off the field. The information on this page was prepared by the Alabama State University Athletics Compliance Office and is presented to you as a guide to assist you with any questions you may have. There are many more NCAA rules and regulations that are not contained here. If you are ever unsure regarding your involvement with our prospects or current student-athletes, please contact the ASU Compliance Office.
