ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

ALABAMA STATE UNIVERSITY ers 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.

TODAY

In 2008, ASU proudly welcomed back noted historian Dr. William H. Harris as the University’s president. Harris had served as the University’s 10th president from 1994 to 2000. During his first tenure, Harris was instrumental in the Knight v. the State of Alabama remedial decree, which resulted in much of the tremendous growth that Alabama State University has experienced over the past 15 years. Because of the decree, the University is being transformed both physically and academically. Multi-million dollar buildings now grace the 165-acre campus and new construction is underway, including work on a $50 million stadium. The stadium is expected to be completed in time for the Turkey Day Classic in 2012.

World Class. World Ready. 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.

YESTERDAY

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.

High-demand academic programs have been established and cutting-edge research is being conducted by ASU faculty and students. We now offer the 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. in educational leadership, policy and law. With a focus on a global initiative, the campus has a more diverse 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 Marching Hornets and the University Choir, and departmental organizations for most majors. Intercollegiate athletic programs include baseball, basketball, In December 1873, the state board accepted the transfer of title to tennis, track and field, volleyball, softball, golf, bowling and cross the school after a legislative act was passed authorizing the state country.

UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT DR. WILLIAM H. HARRIS University President

Dr. William H. Harris has had a long and distinguished career in higher education. He is among a few academicians who have contributed to their fields of study and who have served the higher education community as the CEO and president for both public and private post-secondary institutions. After completing the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees at Indiana University, Harris began his professional career at Indiana University as an assistant professor of history. He rose through the ranks to become professor of history and concomitantly served as associate dean of the Graduate School and director of the CIC Minorities Fellowships Program. He also was a Fulbright Professor and Visiting Professor of History at the University of Hamburg (1978-1979) in Germany. As one of the youngest college presidents ever appointed, Harris led Paine College during the period of 1982-1988. He subsequently led Texas Southern University (1988-1993) and later Alabama State University (1994-2000). He left retirement briefly in 2005-2006 to serve as interim president of Fort Valley StateUniversity and Texas College in 2008. Harris returned to Alabama State University as president in 2008 with a bold new vision centered on advancing the institution’s Culture of Learning. He has since helped University leaders launch an initiative called Vision 2020: The Transformation of Alabama State University. During his second tenure, the University has experienced dramatic growth. New state-of-the-art facilities have been erected and the University has more than $130 million in active construction underway. ASU also has been approved for new high-demand degree programs and has received reaccreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS COC). Harris has earned numerous awards and distinctions, including being named a Distinguished Son of Fitzgerald, Ga., his birthplace, one of 10 individuals so honored during the city’s Centennial Celebration; recipient (with his wife, Wanda) of a Trustees Special Leadership Award from the Paine College Board of Trustees; recipient of the Paine College Alumni Association Charles G. Gomillion Award; recipient of the honorary Doctor of Letters and Laws degree from Paine College and the Doctor of Humane Letters degree from Tuskegee University; recipient of the Trustees Special Service Award from Paine College; and recognition by Indiana University with the Distinguished Alumni Service Award, the highest honor an alumnus can receive from the university. Harris also is designated as one of the Fifty Most Influential Black Georgians. He is the author of two books: Keeping the Faith: A. Phillip Randolph, Milton P. Webster, and the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters, published in 1977 and reissued in 1991 by the University of Illinois Press; and The Harder We Run: Black Workers Since the Civil War, published in 1982 by Oxford University Press. Dr. Harris is married to Wanda Fillmore Harris and the couple has two children, Cynthia and William J. Harris.

ATHLETIC ADMINISTRATION the new home for Alabama State softball, was completed in February 2012, as the program competed on-campus for the first time. •

Stacy Danley

Athletic Director Entering his third season as Athletic Director at Alabama State University, Stacy Danley has helped position Hornet Athletics as one the best mid-major programs in the nation. For the second consecutive season, Alabama State finished second in the Southwestern Athletic Conference Commissioner’s Cup Standings, representative of the top overall athletics program in the SWAC. In 2011-12, ASU won four conference titles, highlighted by the Triple Crown achievement of the Lady Hornets’ women’s track program, winning the SWAC’s cross country, indoor track and outdoor track championships. The championships were just one of a series of milestones achieved under Danley’s watch: •

ASU has won nine divisional, league, conference or tournament titles since the fall of 2010;

The football program moved into the new Houston Markham Football Complex, a two-story, 26,000-square-foot facility overlooking the practice fields at Hornet Stadium.

First-year head coach Penny Lucas-White led the volleyball team to 15 wins, tied for the second-highest total in school history and the most since 1998. The Lady Hornets finished tied for third in the SWAC, as did the men’s tennis team, led by ASU alum Anuk Christiansz in his first year at the helm. The baseball program won 20 games for the first time since 2002, all against Division I teams under first-year head coach Mervyl Melendez. The crown jewel of the athletics construction projects, the new 26,500seat football stadium, is expected to open on Thanksgiving Day, 2012, when the Hornets face Tuskegee in the annual Turkey Day Classic.

Danley arrived at ASU after serving as Associate Director of the J.F. Smith Group. He coordinated all fundraising consultant activities under the HBCU division while also managing and facilitating campus departmental assessment initiatives for HBCU clients. Before his work with the J.F. Smith Group, Danley served as Director of Athletics at Tuskegee University (2008-09). He negotiated football and men’s and women’s basketball game guarantees, secured corporate sponsorships, and oversaw the installation of new locker rooms. The former Auburn University running back spent eight years (1997-2005) at his alma mater. He spent six years as the Assistant Athletic Director for External Affairs, before being promoted to Associate Athletic Director for External Affairs. He served as the compliance officer for six Olympic sports and monitored all recruiting activities, while working with team budgets

He spent his last two years at Auburn as the Associate Athletic Director and Men’s Sports Coordinator. Danley also created and directed the Former Player Fund-Raising Initiative and developed NCAA and Southeastern Conference compliance systems to monitor programs and ensure institutional control was maintained. He was the project administrator for the Auburn University National Youth Sports Program and served on the state of Alabama’s Athlete Agent Regulatory Commission. During his college years at Auburn, Danley lettered four years, earning All-SEC honors and was named the SEC Sophomore of the Year. After college, Danley signed NFL contracts with the Seattle Seahawks and the Indianapolis Colts. Following his professional football career, Danley returned to Auburn where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1993 and a master’s in education administration in 1996. While completing his master’s degree, he spent two years as a graduate assistant in Auburn University’s athletic department. He worked in the compliance office where he provided support with NCAA and SEC legislative interpretations. Once he completed his master’s degree, he moved to the SEC office where he spent two years working in compliance, championships and event management. He conducted student-athlete advisory committee meetings and provided NCAA and SEC legislation interpretations for member institutions. He and his wife Stephanie have three children: Lawson, Trace and Landon.

ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

HORNET FOOTBALL HISTORY Football Tradition Since 1901, football – the South’s great passion – has been an integral part of the ASU experience. 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 University’s century of football success has been highFootball Saturdays are truly special at ASU, creating memories, lighted by one Black College National Championship, one SIAC Champibuilding legends and making the dreams of young men come onship, two Southwestern Athletic Conference championships, and three SWAC Eastern Division Championships. true. The 1935 Hornets squad of head coach Rufas Lewis won the SIAC Championship, winning six games by shutout, and finished the season with a 9-1-1 record. In 1991, ASU head coach Houston Markham led the most dominant Hornets team ever to an 11-0-1 season that included six consecutive victories by at least 28 points. ASU captured the Black College National Championship that season, beating North Carolina A&T 36-13 in the Heritage Bowl. All-American linebacker Eddie Robinson was named SWAC Defensive Player of the Year. Robinson became the highest drafted player in ASU history when he was selected in the second round by the Houston Oilers in the 1992 NFL draft. ASU won Eastern Division Championships in 2003, 2004 and 2010. In 2004, the Hornets posted a 10-2 record and their second SWAC title as quarterback Tarvaris Jackson led ASU to a thrilling 40-35 win over Southern in the SWAC Championship Game. Jackson would go on to be a second-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2006.

BLACK & GOLD GAME/HORNET WALK Black and Gold Game Each spring, as ASU concludes offseason practices, Hornet Stadium comes to life as thousands of former players and fans get together for the Black and Gold spring football game. Essentially an intrasquad scrimmage, the Black and Gold game is much more than a regular practice. The day kicks off with Hornetfest, as kids of all ages enjoy games, football and fellowship. The game starts immediately afterward, with alumni activities and autograph signings mixed in between. It is a day to celebrate everything ASU — our teams, our fans and our community.

Hornet walk The Turkey Day Classic – the oldest of America’s black college football rivalries – has long been the standard against which other classics are judged. In 2007, the TDC added another element to its rich tradition – the Hornetwalk. With the entire Mighty Marching Hornets forming a black and gold human tunnel and the ASU cheerleaders leading the way, the Hornets football team made its way off the team buses through the huge crowd in the parking lot and into Cramton Bowl. For the first time ever, the fans had the chance to cheer on and fire up the team before the game started. Hornetwalk was an immediate hit with both fans and players and is now a part of the greatest black college event of the year, the Turkey Day Classic.

GAMEDAY ATMOSPHERE THE MIGHTY MARCHING HORNETS

Alabama State University’s Mighty Marching Hornets gained widespread recognition with their spectacular halftime performances during nationally televised professional football games between the New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs in 1967, the New Orleans Saints and the Green Bay Packers in 1969, the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints in 1976 and 1977, the Cincinnati Bengals and the Houston Oilers in 1976, and at the Blue-Gray Football Classic in Montgomery in 1976 and 1977. 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.”

SPIRIT GROUPS

The ASU Cheerleaders are a team of energetic, enthusiastic and athletic students devoted to building fan support for the Hornets. It is their goal to spread their contagious “ole ‘Bama State spirit” on campus, at games and throughout the community. The Stingettes, a group of talented dancers, bring an even higher level of excitement to the ASU game atmosphere by performing precision dance line routines in conjunction with Bama State band performances.

STADIUMS

CRAMTON BOWL Cramton Bowl serves as home for the Hornets until the University completes construction on its own $50 million dollar stadium. The city-owned Cramton Bowl, which was built in 1922, has undergone an $8.5 million renovation that includes improvements to the field, press box, and infrastructure. In addition to serving as the Hornets’ home field, Cramton Bowl is also home for several of Montgomery’s high school football programs. The Bowl has a seating capacity of more than 20,000.

LEGION FIELD

Renovated in 1991 through a $13 million improvement program, Legion Field hosts a full schedule of college and high school football. Legion Field was named in honor of the American Legion as a memorial to the members of the U.S armed forces who gave their lives in service. Hundreds of games have been played on the stadium’s surface since it was dedicated in 1927. In addition to the games, the 82,000-seat facility is used for concerts and special events such as drum corps competitions. Legion Field once hosted the Southeastern Conference title game and the famed “Iron Bowl” pitting Alabama against Auburn. The stadium has two suites (200-person and 300-person capacity), 12 skyboxes with 24-seat capacity, and three skyboxes with 15-seat capacity. The stadium is host to the annual Magic City Classic between Alabama State University and Alabama A&M University. The facility was the site of the inaugural Southwestern Athletic Conference East/West Championship football game Dec. 11, 1999.

Last season, Alabama State ranked in the Top 3 in the SWAC in 11 statistical rankings, seven of which ranked in FCS Top 20: pass efficiency defense (2nd), interceptions (tied for 2nd), In 2011, Barlow’s Hornets takeaways (3rd), turnover margin (3rd), scoring defense (6th), won eight games, the most fumble recoveries (tied for 11th), and net punting (16th). since the 2004 SWAC Championship season. And while the gridiron Hornets have posted back-to-back Alabama State was ranked winning seasons for the first time since doing it three consecutive No. 1 in most HBCU polls years from 2003-05, Barlow has always been and 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. “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.”

since 2005. The Hornets, which won seven games in conference play for the first time ever, won one more game overall (eight) and in league play than it did in 2010, but came up one game short of a return trip to the SWAC Championship Game.

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 The Hornets lost those three games by a total of 11 points, Nick Andrews. including a one-point loss to Alabama A&M in the State Farm Magic City Classic, and a three-point loss to Southern, both The NFL took notice and Barlow was selected in the fourth defeats costing Alabama State the Eastern Division title for the round of the 1996 NFL draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

HEAD COACH REGGIE BARLOW 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.

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. 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. 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 the father of three children — Ericka, Reggie Jr. and Simone.

He would put that information and experience to good use when he joined the ASU football staff as quarterbacks coach in

SEASON PREVIEW The Alabama State Hornets are poised to again be in the hunt for the 2012 Southwestern Athletic Conference football championship. Last season, the Hornets actually improved both their overall and conference win total from 2010, but came up short of a berth in the SWAC Championship Game. “It ached and hurt to know that we did not get an opportunity to play for the championship,” sixth-year head coach Reggie Barlow said of last year’s team which posted an 8-3 overall record, 7-2 in SWAC play. “There were a lot of positives to take from that season. We had our highest number of All-SWAC players in a long time, (now departed) Nick Andrews setting career receiving records, and Kejuan Riley continuing to move up the interceptions chart. To be able to win eight games was a good accomplishment, and we want to continue to improve.” The Hornets lost their three games last year by a total of 11 points, including a one-point loss to Alabama A&M in the State Farm Magic City Classic, and a three-point loss to Southern, both defeats costing Alabama State the Eastern Division title for the second straight season.

Jenkins completed 125-of-210 passes (59.5 percent) for 1,475 yards with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions, while rushing for 330 yards and seven touchdowns.

Quendarius McKibben is the top returning running back for the Hornets, as he ranked third in both rushing yards (257) and touchdowns (three).

We’re hoping to match or better that number of takeaways this season.” Carlton Jones and DreQuay Everett two of the top returners to the defense line.

Andrews caught nine passes for 118 yards and one touchdown as Alabama State improved to 6-1 overall, 6-0 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference for the first time since the 2005 season. Prairie View (4-3, 4-2) had a three-game winning streak snapped. Andrews caught the record-setting pass in the third quarter, surpassing Damon Hodge (176). Andrews now has 178 receptions for 2,429 yards and an ASU record 26 touchdowns. He is just 108 yards shy of the Hornets’ receiving yards record.

FIRST DOWNS

The Hornets took advantage of a PV fumble to set up the first score of the game. DE Carlton Jones’ fumble recovery led to QB Greg Jenkins’ 10-yard touchdown run for 7-0 Alabama State lead just 1:35 into the game. Alabama State took advantage of great field position in the second quarter to extend its lead. Andrews caught a 34-yard touchdown pass from Jenkins to extend the Hornets’ lead to 14-0 with 8:47 to play until halftime. An eight-play, 33-yard drive ended with Bobby Wenzig’s 39-yard field goal on the final play of the half as Alabama State took a 17-0 lead. In the second quarter, the Hornets’ defense made perhaps the biggest stop of the game. ASU stopped Prairie View twice at the one-yard line, including CB Saeed Lee’s tackle of RB Courtney Brown. FS Kejuan Riley made his sixth interception of the season in the fourth quarter and now has 14 career interceptions, sixth most in ASU history since 1970.

Score by Quarters Southern University Alabama State

MONTGOMERY – Alabama State rallied from 12-point secondhalf deficit but could not hang on as a late Southern touchdown with nine seconds remaining gave the Jaguars a 26-23 win. Trailing 19-7 entering the fourth quarter, Alabama State scored 16 straight points. A Bobby Wenzig 36-yard field goal and Landon Jones’ 32-yard touchdown reception on consecutive drives cut the Alabama State deficit to 19-17 with 7:55 to play. The frenzy of the game’s final period escalated when the teams then combined to turn the ball over three times in five plays. Southern fumbled twice in that span, the second recovered by CB Saeed Lee to give Alabama State possession at the Hornets’ 27-yard line. QB Greg Jenkins, who entered the game in the third quarter, drove the Hornets 73 yards in nine plays. Tim Clark’s five-yard touchdown run with 3:07 remaining in the game gave Alabama State a 23-19 lead. However, Southern answered with a 73-yard drive of its own, taking 10 plays to score. After a pair of ASU penalties near the goal line, RB Brian McCain’s one-yard touchdown dive was the game-winner for the Jaguars. The Hornets scored first, taking the opening kickoff and marching 53 yards in 11 plays as Clark’s one-yard run gave Alabama State a 7-0 lead less than four minutes into the game. Leading 7-3, Alabama State appeared on the verge of extending the lead after Edward Mosley forced a fumble that Quin Bohannon recovered at the Southern one-yard line. However, the Hornets lost five yards in three plays and Wenzig missed a 23-yard field goal wide right. Southern scored on its final two drives of the first half to take the lead. A J.P Douglas 18-yard touchdown pass to Charles Hawkins and Manuel Canto 20-yard field goal gave the Jaguars a 12-7 halftime lead.

ALABAMA STATE FOOTBALL

NCAA COMPLIANCE The Alabama State University Athletic Department in conjunction with the ASU Compliance office strive for honor and dignity of fair play and the highest standards associated with intercollegiate athletic 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 can provide transportation to your home for the occasional meal. • Provide summer employment to a student athlete, provided 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 a 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: Some 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 on the campus during unofficial or official visits.

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.

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.

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.

>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:

Any questions regarding NCAA rules and regulations, especially those dealing with prospects and student athletes, should be directed toward the ASU Office of Compliance (334-229-4519). The ASU Athletic program needs your help and support, so please cooperate to ensure success for the Hornets, on and off the field.

- 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

remember: Ask before you act.

The information on this page was prepared by the Alabama State Athletic 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.

the city of Montgomery Montgomery is a friendly Southern city of grace and charm nestled in the heart of the River Region and is a dynamic leader for economic growth and strength in the Southeast. The metropolitan area is home to more than 320,000 residents and is Alabama’s Capital City. Montgomery is a city of vast economic diversity with the military, wholesale and retail trade, cutting-edge medical facilities and industry providing a well-balanced economic environment.

Montgomery, which has been dubbed the “birthplace of Civil War and Civil Rights,” offers a wealth of history and cultural activities for people of all ages and interests. The first capital of the Confederacy and the location of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s pulpit, from which he preached the gospel of non-violence, Montgomery is a historical beacon for equal rights and was the site of the Montgomery Bus Boycott, which sparked the Civil Rights Movement. The Rosa Parks Library, Museum and Children’s Annex and the new Civil Rights Memorial operated by the Southern Poverty Law Center provide a glimpse into important events that shaped the destiny of a nation.

In addition to its turnkey position in governmental affairs, Montgomery holds a unique position in concerns of military training, technology, defense and education and is home to Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base. Air University, located on Maxwell Air Force Base, affords top-notch military instruction to officers from all branches of the armed forces. Gunter is the location of the 754th Electronics Systems Group (ELSG), which functions under the auspices of the Department of Defense Enterprise Software Initiative, providing technical support, customer service and program management for more than 160 Combat Support Information Technology (IT) systems. The city’s economic stability is firmly established as Montgomery accommodates booming industries and medical facilities that are vital to the Southeast and to the 22-county central Alabama area. In 2002, Hyundai broke ground on a $1.4 billion, 2-million-square-foot automobile manufacturing facility in the Capital City, Hyundai’s first automobile manufacturing facility in the U.S. Area hospitals offer comprehensive, cutting-edge medical services and facilities. Both Jackson Hospital and

Baptist Health provide Montgomery residents access to neonatal intensive care, open-heart surgical and cardiac treatment facilities and physicians, rehabilitative and therapeutic orthopedic medicine, cancer treatment centers and more. Moreover, area veterans are served by the V.A. Me

The city is home to an eclectic assortment of recreational activities as well. The Alabama Shakespeare Festival, located in the Blount Cultural Park, is the fifth largest Shakespeare Festival and draws visitors from throughout the world. Blount Cultural Park also is headquarters of the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, which houses an extensive permanent collection. The city boasts a world-class ballet company, art education opportunities and a symphony orchestra. In February 2003, Montgomerians welcomed the Montgomery Biscuits and a new $26 million baseball stadium, which opened in spring 2004 beside the Alabama River. The stadium is a key element in the city’s ongoing Riverfront development and downtown revitalization project, with downtown and riverfront investments now totaling more than $900 million.


Our vision is big. Our impact is bigger.
