Both coaches were instrumental in building championship programs at Lehigh University where Higgins coached for 13 seasons.

Up front, the Dogs return four of five starters, including seniors Cliff and Cale Conant and Adam Peterson, who could be the strength of the offense. Replacing Kinta Palmer and Mark Wigal on the perimeter will not be an easy task, but ready to step up is veteran trio of Gary Domanski, Rontreal Tyler and Ta’Mar Jernigan.

The Citadel 2006 Bulldog Football


THE CITADEL FOOTBALL 2006 son. Tumbleston had an excellent spring game and is much improved. Incoming freshman Cam Turner, a highly recruited prospect from Chicago, could also be in the hunt for playing time as well.

Running Backs

Wide Receivers

Nuru Goodrum

The corps of wide receivers lost two key players in Kinta Palmer, the second leading receiver for the Bulldogs, and Mark Wigal at the end of the 2005 season. Returning in 2006 are lettermen Rontreal Tyler, Gary Domanski and Ta’Mar Jernigan, last year’s leading receiver. Sophomore Joshua Haney is young, up and coming with enough game experience to make a significant contribution among the wide receivers, while Travis Gentry, who had a good spring, will compete for playing time during the upcoming season.

The offensive line will be anchored by an experienced group of seniors and juniors. Returning starters include fifth-year seniors Adam Peterson, Cale Conant and Cliff Conant along with junior Chris McDowell. Peterson and Cliff Conant will remain on the right side of the line at guard and tackle, respectively. Cale Conant will make the change to left tackle to fill the void left by two-year starter Chris McDowell who will serve as the leader of the group at the center position. Redshirt sophomore Clay Muirhead will round out the front at left guard. The age and experience of the offensive line must serve as a catalyst for an offense that looks to improve on running the football and protecting the passer. Sophomore David Morbitzer, junior Brian Fletcher and senior Clay Carruth will push for playing time at guard, while redshirt freshmen Daniel DeHaven and Phillip Provence look for time at the tackle positions. Redshirt freshmen Tommy Suggs and Harrison Plunkett will fight for the backup roll to McDowell at center. Redshirt freshmen Matt Earls, Trey Lewis and David Johnson continue to improve and will help in a reserve roll. The offensive line as a whole made tremendous strides during the spring and must continue to improve in order to be the driving force behind the offense this fall. The incoming signees are filled with great promise and include some bigger, stronger athletes who will look to contribute early.

Also competing for a starting spot, making a debut appearance among the wide receivers this season, will be Marcus McKnight, a transfer from the University of Alabama. Fighting as backups among the wide receivers are Sean Bartram, Derek Moore, Melvin Davis, and Scott Flanagan, all of whom have put in a lot of hard work during the off-season.

2006 Season Preview

There will be plenty of competition at the running back position with the return of senior Nuru Goodrum, junior Montrell Lee and junior Tory Cooper. Cooper returned to the running back position for the last two games of the 2005 season and quickly proved his value, having been named the “Most Improved Player” in the spring.

Offensive Line

Tight Ends

The Citadel tight ends look forward to a promising 2006 season with the return of all of their key players from 2005. This young group showed much promise last season and will continue to grow. Among the returnees are Taylor Cornett, who had an impressive spring, and Aaron Kelly, who is an experienced player with great potential. New faces among the tight ends in 2006 are Alex Sellers and Brice Peper. Both will have an opportunity to contribute if ready.

THE CHOSEN CHALLENGE... DEFENSE

2006 Season Preview

The Citadel defense experiences a change in scheme for the first time in three years. The Bulldogs will not only have to make a transition to a new defense, but they will be forced to replace some productive players at each level. Defensive coordinator Isaac Collins is excited about the progress made this spring by all positions. The defensive line showed signs of being a force in the passing game, led by the two bookends in senior James Wilson and junior Trevar Broughton. The linebacking corps showed positive signs both in the run and pass with senior Raleigh Jackson providing solid play on the perimeter, and junior Andrew Rowell and senior Chris Murray erasing everything in the middle.

12

The secondary found itself late in spring ball and showed it could lock down receivers in scrimmage situations. Senior Justin Matherson and junior Earl Whitmore hope to anchor the corner positions, while safeties redshirt junior Josh Lawson and junior Kendrick Lyles will bring experience to the back end. Spring practice also had the surfacing of redshirt sophomore P.J. Brown, a former defensive back, and redshirt sophomore Steve Spann at the linebacker position giving hope of having depth and competition. The Citadel defensive staff is excited about the upcoming first-year defensive class that is filled with speed, size and great potential. But it is the emergence of redshirt sophomore defensive back Dwight House, sophomore Jonathan Vest and redshirt freshman Tillman Millhouse, redshirt freshmen linebackers Charles Major and Napoleon Dunn and redshirt sophomore defensive tackle Kevin McCaskill and junior Jacob Bryant that should have the Bulldog nation excited about the future of The Citadel defense.

Defensive Line

The Citadel coaching staff is expecting big things from the defensive line this fall and with good reason as the Bulldogs return a veteran group of defensive linemen for the 2006 campaign. Leading the charge upfront will be 2005 All-SoCon defensive end James Wilson. Blessed with outstanding speed, the fifth-year senior should create problems for opposing offenses. Junior TreJames Wilson var Broughton, who had an outstanding spring and is poised to have a breakout season, will patrol the other end of the Bulldog front. Seniors Chase Carlton, Nick Fender and sophomores Charles Evans, Quin Watson, along with newcomers Dewitt Jones and Eric Clanton, will add depth to the defensive end position. The interior of the line should be strong as well, and will be anchored by a solid group of game-tested players led by senior Deon Douglas. Helping Douglas control the interior line will be redshirt sophomore Kevin McCaskill, junior Jacob Bryant and senior Lukas Gleissner. Newcomers Terrence Reese and Kenny Stephens both have excellent size and strength and will add to the depth of this talented group.

Linebackers

Several key losses at linebacker will provide an opportunity for new leaders to emerge in the Bulldog linebacker corps. Gone are captains and all-conference performers Shawn Grant and Porter Johnson. Andrew Rowell, the team’s second leading tackler with 84 stops, returns in the middle. Experienced veterans Raleigh Jackson and Chris MurAndrew Rowell ray showed signs in the spring of being consistent starters at the outside spots.

THE CITADEL FOOTBALL 2006

At free safety, the loss of Avery Dingle to graduation has brought about the rise of three young players battling for the role. Sophomore Dwight House has made significant strides during spring drills and has emerged as the starter. Sophomore Jonathan Vest and freshman Carver Wright, a former wide receiver, will continue to compete to add depth to the position.

The cornerback position, which was handled by committee last season, will be headed by senior Justin Matherson and junior Earl Whitmore. Senior Vince Hill, along with freshmen Tillman Millhouse and Shaquill Smith, have worked hard during spring drills and look to gain playing time during the fall.

Special Teams

The Bulldogs return all of their specialists from the 2005 campaign and look to continue improvement in all areas this upcoming season. However, consistency will be the key. Nick Fender, last year’s special teams MVP, will again handle all the snapping duties. Depth will be provided by Jeff Hodish, Tanner Jordan, and Ray Webb. Blake Vandiver returns to handle the placement kicks, but is in a battle with Mike Adams. Last season Vandiver connected on two 45-yard field goals - a personal best. Spring competition saw Adams with an edge on kick-offs. James Costigan has a strong leg but

THE CHOSEN CHALLENGE... Kevin Higgins Head Coach Second Season West Chester ‘77

Head Coach

Kevin Higgins enters his second season as The Citadel’s head football coach. Formerly the quarterbacks and wide receivers coach of the Detroit Lions, Higgins is the Bulldogs’ 23rd head football coach.

THE CHOSEN CHALLENGE...

Legend of the Silver Shako

As told by Col. Jake Burrows ‘40, former Business Manager of The Citadel Athletic Department and Faculty Athletic Representative.

76

Shortly after he became President of The Citadel, Lt. Gen. Seignious asked me to come up with a perpetual trophy that the football teams of The Citadel and VMI could compete for on an annual basis. He had already selected a very appropriate name for the game: “The Military Classic of the South.” I was at that time the Director of Student Activities and was also the Faculty Representative for Athletics, both of which positions I had inherited from Col. David S. McAlister, a Citadel legend who had held those positions for many years. I remembered from my growing-up years in the Midwest that the football teams from the Universities of Michigan and Minnesota annually played for “The Little Brown Jug,” with the winning team taking possession of the trophy until the next game. I believe that the jug was once used by one team’s waterboy and after the game, the other team stole the jug. They refused to give it up, saying “Win it back next year!” Thus began a tradition that continues until the present. Such a memorable trophy was what I sought. Keeping in mind the roles of each college, I naturally thought of some military item common to both schools. The cadet sword was considered but discarded as being too unwieldy to make into a trophy. The shako offered a more compact form and I envisaged the shako devices from each school on the front of the shako. A colleague from VMI sent me one of their shako devices and I found an old, discarded shako in The Citadel’s tailor shop. I then cut holes in the shako and attached the devices. The pom-pom was of course included. I took this rough trophy to General Seignious and described a wooden base for it, on which silver plates would be attached to describe the trophy and to record the yearly results of each game. The General approved the concept and gave me the go-ahead. Until this time, only one person at VMI knew what we were planning. The time had come to get VMI’s official approval of “The Military Classic of the South” and the proposed trophy. VMI was initially not very enthusiastic about the whole idea. VMI had traditional rivals in their own state, such as the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, William & Mary and Richmond. Nonetheless, they shortly approved the project and we moved on. At this point, I called on Citadel graduate Whit Cline (Class of 1959), who was then and still is a representative of the L.G. Balfour Company, a nationally known manufacturer of trophies and rings and like items. Many Citadel

graduates wear rings manufactured by Balfour. Whit came from his Columbia office and I described the proposed trophy to him. At that time, I thought that Balfour would make a mold of the trophy and cast it perhaps in bronze or another suitable metal. Whit took the shako with him and soon after called to say that Balfour suggested a silver trophy, which they could make by covering the shako with a fine silver thread and then melting the thread into a solid coating. That appeared to be a good solution and “Silver Shako” had a nice alliterative sound to it. Thus “The Silver Shako” was born. The cost of the trophy was $532.72 and VMI paid for half of it. The Balfour Company completed the trophy in time for the 1976 game, which was played in Charleston. Bobby Ross, a VMI graduate, was The Citadel coach. The media gave good coverage to the first “Military Classic of the South” and the trophy rested upon a velvet covered table on The Citadel’s sideline during the game. The scenario called for the President of each college, the head football coaches and players of each team to meet at the center of the field after the game and the President of the college would then present the trophy to the President of the winning college. Horror of horrors, The Citadel lost, 30-14! General Seignious was a good sport and manfully carried out his role. Bobby Ross was nearly in tears and his players retired immediately to their locker room. Of course, the VMI team was on the field in force, properly gleeful over their victory. Twenty-six games have now been played in the series with the shako up for grabs, of which The Citadel has won 17, lost eight and tied one. The 2003 version of “The Military Classic of the South” took to a new venue as the Bulldogs and Keydets squared off in Memorial Stadium in Charlotte, N.C.. The battle saw one of the closest games in the series history as The Citadel squeezed out a 27-23 victory. The Bulldogs scored the go-ahead touchdown with only 14 seconds left on the clock to clinch the victory and to bring the Silver Shako back to Charleston. After a year off, the Bulldogs retained possession of the Silver Shako with a 22-14 victory in Lexington, Va., in 2005. Overall, The Citadel and VMI series stands at 32-30-2 with the Bulldogs holding the edge after the victory in Lexington in 2005. The Citadel has won two in a row over VMI, three of the last four, six of the last eight and 11 of the last 15.

Southern Conference

THE CHOSEN CHALLENGE... The Southern Conference, which enters its 86th season of intercollegiate competition in 2006, has become known as one of the nation’s leaders in emphasizing the development of the student-athlete and defining the league’s role in helping to build lifelong leaders and role models. The Southern Conference has excelled as the premier Division I-AA football conference since earning that classification in 1981. The Conference currently consists of 11 members in four states throughout the Southeast and sponsors 19 varsity sports and championships that produce participants for NCAA Division I Championships. The Southern Conference is the nation’s fifth-oldest NCAA Division I collegiate athletic association. Only the Big Ten (1896), the Missouri Valley (1907), the Pacific 10 (1915) and the Southwestern Athletic (1920) conferences are older in terms of origination. Throughout its history, the Southern Conference has been an innovator in college athletics. The Southern Conference was the first “super conference” with its charter membership including the likes of Alabama, Auburn, and North Carolina. The SoCon, as it has come to be known by headline writers throughout the country, is the league that gave birth to the three-point shot in college basketball and was the college home of such sporting greats as Arnold Palmer, Jerry West and Charlie “Choo Choo” Justice. Academic excellence has been a major part of the Southern Conference’s tradition. League athletes have been recognized countless times on CoSIDA Academic All-America and district teams, highlighted this year by College of Charleston baseball player Phillip Coker, who was named Academic All-American of the Year. A total of 19 Rhodes-Scholarship winners have been selected from the conference. The Southern Conference office is located in the Beaumont Mill in Spartanburg, S.C. A textile mill that was in operation from 1880 until 1999, the Beaumont Mill was renovated in 2004 and today offers the SoCon a first class meeting area as well as a spacious library for storage of the conference’s historical documents. MEMBERSHIP HISTORY The Southern Conference was formed on Feb. 25, 1921 at a meeting in Atlanta, Ga. Fourteen institutions from the 30-member Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association (SIAA) reorganized as the Southern Conference. Those charter members included Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi State, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Washington & Lee. Athletic competition began in the fall of 1921. In 1922, six more schools - Florida, Louisiana State, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tulane and Vanderbilt - joined the fold. A year later, the University of the South joined the ranks. Virginia Military Institute became a member in 1925 and Duke University came into the fold in 1929. Since then, conference membership has experienced a series of membership changes with 42 institutions having been affiliated with the league. The league has undergone two major transitions during its history. The first occurred in December 1932 when the Southeastern Conference was formed out of the 23-school Southern Conference. The league’s 13 members west and south of the Appalachian Mountains reorganized to help reduce the extensive travel demands that were present in the league at the time. In 1936, the Southern Conference invited The Citadel, William & Mary, Davidson, Furman, Richmond and Wake Forest to join the membership. The second major shift happened in 1953 when Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest officially withdrew from the league to form the Atlantic Coast Conference. This change was brought about due to the desire of many of those schools to schedule a greater number of regular season basketball games against their local rivals. Today, the league continues to thrive with a membership that spans four Southeastern states. Current league members are Appalachian State, College of Charleston, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, UNC Greensboro, Chattanooga, Western Carolina and Wofford. The most recent addition, Elon University, joined the Southern Conference on July 1, 2003. The Phoenix replaced Virginia Military Institute which left the conference on June 30, 2003. East Tennessee State, which joined the SoCon in 1978, left the conference following the conclusion of the 2004-05 academic year. LEADERSHIP The start of the 2006 football campaign sees John Iamarino enter his first football season as the Southern Conference’s commissioner. Iamarino, who officially became the SoCon commissioner on Jan. 2, 2006, previously served as the commissioner of the Northeast Conference for nine seasons. In his nine years with the Somerset, N.J.-based NEC, Iamarino promoted the conference through an ambitious agenda designed to improve the quality of competition, upgrade compliance-related matters and generally increase the marketing and brand awareness of the conference and its member institutions. To improve the 21 championship NEC sports for the more than 2,200 student-athletes who compete, Iamarino helped secure professional facilities to accommodate baseball, indoor track & field, tennis and women’s swimming championships. Tournament gifts, awards, trophies and event programs were all systematically

78

upgraded. Iamarino replaced Danny Morrison who served as commissioner from Nov. 13, 2001 until June 15, 2005. Morrison left the league to become the director of athletics at Texas Christian University. The Southern Conference named its first commissioner in December 1950. Duke head football coach Wallace Wade made the transition from Blue Devil football coach to athletics administration as the first person at the helm of the conference. Lloyd Jordan replaced Wade as the commissioner in 1960 and served a 14-year term until Ken Germann became the league head in 1974. Germann was the commissioner for 13 years and orchestrated the league’s expansion to include women’s athletics. He was succeeded by Dave Hart in 1987 who spearheaded the transfer of the league office from Charlotte, N.C., to Asheville, N.C. Wright Waters succeeded Hart upon his retirement in 1991. Under Waters’ leadership, the Southern Conference expanded to 12 members, added three women’s sports and posted record revenue from the basketball tournament. Waters, who is currently the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference, was followed by Alfred B. White in 1998. White, a veteran member of the NCAA office, introduced the current SoCon logo and elevated the conference’s commitment to marketing and development of corporate partners. He became the president of the Asheville franchise of the National Basketball Development League in 2001. CHAMPIONSHIPS HISTORY The first Southern Conference Championship was the league basketball tournament held in Atlanta in 1922.The North Carolina Tar Heels won the tournament to become the first recognized league champion in any sport. The Southern Conference Tournament remains the oldest of its kind in college basketball. In May of 1923, the league held its first outdoor track and field championship in Montgomery, Ala. Mississippi A&M (now Mississippi State) captured six individual titles on its way to winning the team championship. Two other sports - cross country and tennis - held their first championships during the 1920s. North Carolina won the initial cross country team championship in 1926 in Athens, Ga. Tennis crowned its first singles and doubles champions in New Orleans, La. in 1928. Donald Cram of Vanderbilt was the league’s first singles champion, while Leonard Chamberlin and Maurie Bayon of Tulane won the doubles title. The 1930s saw four more sports - wrestling, indoor track and field, swimming and golf - celebrate their first conference championships. VMI played host to and won the first league wrestling team championship in 1930. Washington & Lee won the first indoor track team championship, which also took place in 1930 and was held at Chapel Hill, N.C. The University of Virginia hosted and won the first league swimming championship in 1933, while Duke captured the first conference golf team title at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., later that same year. Baseball was introduced as a Southern Conference sport in 1947 as Clemson captured the league championship that year. Rifle held its first conference championship in 1956, while soccer was the most recently added men’s sport in 1967. The Southern Conference began sponsoring women’s sports during the 1983-84 season.That year, volleyball, basketball and tennis championships were held in the league. Cross country joined the mix in 1985 and the league began holding indoor and outdoor track championships in 1988. Most recently, the conference instituted golf and softball championships in the spring of 1994 and added soccer in the fall of 1994. The Southern Conference currently declares champions in 10 men’s sports - football, soccer, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, wrestling, baseball, tennis and golf - and nine women’s sports - soccer, volleyball, cross country, basketball, indoor track and field, outdoor track and field, tennis, golf and softball. FOOTBALL The Southern Conference has the most prolific history among Division I-AA football conferences. The league boasts the best winning percentage in the history of the I-AA Playoffs (.626). League players have garnered over 200 AllAmerica selections and numerous national player- or coach-of-the-year awards. The conference has had at least one team in the Top 10 of the final I-AA poll for 22 consecutive years with at least two teams finishing in the Top 20 in every season since 1982. The conference has placed multiple representatives in the I-AA Playoffs in 20 of 24 seasons, with 14 Championship Game appearances and six national titles. Georgia Southern won back-to-back national championships, including a 27-25 win over Montana in the 2000 title game and a 59-24 win over Youngstown State in 1999. Furman advanced to the championship title game in 2001 before falling to Montana. Appalachian State claimed its first-ever National Championship crown in 2005 with a 21-16 win over Northern Iowa. The SoCon has had at least one team reach the semifinals in seven of the last eight years and in 12 of the last 14 seasons. In 2005, the league had three teams advance to the playoffs for the fifth time in the past seven years.

BASKETBALL Men’s basketball was the first sport in which the conference produced a championship. The league tournament is the nation’s oldest, with the inaugural championship held in Atlanta in 1922. Not only was the Southern Conference Tournament the first of its kind, the league also helped change the face of college basketball in 1980 when, at the request of the NCAA Rules Committee, the league began a season-long experiment with a 22-foot three-point field goal. Ronnie Carr of Western Carolina made the first three-point field goal in college basketball history in a game against Middle Tennessee State. Another college basketball tradition that originated in the SoCon is the traditional cutting of the nets by the winning team. According to USA Today, the practice of net cutting originated in 1947 with North Carolina State head coach Everett Case. As a first-year head coach with the Wolfpack, Case led State to the SoCon Tournament title with a 50-48 win over arch-rival North Carolina. To commemorate the event, Case celebrated by claiming the nets as a souvenir of the win. Basketball coaching legend Red Auerbach gives credit to former George Washington University coach Bill Reinhart, who coached in the SoCon for nearly 30 years, as the inventor of the modern fastbreak. The SoCon was the first conference to use the tournament to determine its NCAA representative when North Carolina State claimed the tournament title in 1952. West Virginia’s 10 tournament championships are still the most in league history. The Mountaineers were led by the incomparable Jerry West from 1958 through ’60. West, a two-time All-America selection, spurred West Virginia to the Final Four in 1959. The Mountaineers lost in the championship game that season to California, 71-70, but West earned Final Four Most Valuable Player honors. West was a three-time Southern Conference tournament MVP, a two-time league regular season MVP, and was twice named the conference’s Athlete-of-the-Year. He went on to a spectacular career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association and was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1979. He was a 14-time NBA All-Star while with the Lakers. It is West’s silhouette that comprises the NBA’s globally recognized logo. Frank Selvy set the NCAA record for points in a game while at Furman. As a Paladin senior in 1954, Selvy lit up Newberry College for 100 points, a record that still stands. Selvy was the Southern Conference Most Valuable Player in 1953 and

1954 and the league’s Athlete-of-the-Year in 1954. He went on to a 10-year career in the NBA with seven different teams. Rod Hundley was another West Virginia star during the 1950s. “Hot Rod” made a name for himself as one of the most spectacular players to tour the league during his era. Hundley averaged 24.5 points per game in his three seasons as a Mountaineer and was an all-conference and all-tournament performer in each of those three years. He was the Southern Conference Most Valuable Player and Athlete-of-the-Year as a senior in 1957. He was the first player selected in the 1957 NBA draft and enjoyed a six-year career in that league. The flamboyant Hundley is recognized today as the voice of the NBA’s Utah Jazz. East Tennessee State’s Keith “Mister” Jennings made his mark on the college basketball world in the early 1990s. Despite standing under six feet tall, Jennings was a two-time all-conference choice and the league’s Player-of-the-Year and Athlete-of-the-Year in 1991. Jennings played with the Golden State Warriors of the NBA. Most recently, Western Carolina’s Kevin Martin was a first round pick of the Sacramento Kings in 2004. Martin was second in the nation in scoring as a junior at 24.9 points per game before leaving a year early for the NBA. Besides West Virginia’s team in 1959, the Southern Conference has been represented in the Final Four on two other occasions. North Carolina advanced to the NCAA championship game in 1943 before falling 43-40 to Oklahoma State. North Carolina State finished third in the tournament in 1950. Women’s basketball competition began in the Southern Conference in 1983-84 with seven teams, five of whom are still members of the league: Appalachian State, Chattanooga, Davidson, Furman and Western Carolina. In the sport’s history, seven schools have won the league’s tournament at least once with Chattanooga winning 10 and Appalachian State owning six titles. UNC Greensboro won the 1998 tournament as head coach Lynne Agee became the first coach to take a team to the NCAA Tournament in all three Divisions - I, II & III. In 2001, Chattanooga head coach Wes Moore became the first coach in NCAA history to take three different teams to the NCAA Tournament in all three Divisions. Since 1984, seven different teams have claimed at least a share of the regular season crown. Chattanooga has the most overall titles with 12, five of them shared. Chattanooga owns the most outright championships with seven. Only four players have won the conference Player of the Year award twice: ETSU’s DeShawne Blocker in 1992-93 and 1994-95; Furman’s Jackie Smith, 1997-98 and 1998-99; Chattanooga’s Damita Bullock, who won the award in 2000 and 2001 and the Lady Mocs’ Katasha Brown (2003-04 and 2005-06). OTHER SPORTS In baseball,Wake Forest advanced to the championship game of the NCAA College World Series in 1949 before falling to Texas. Demon Deacon second baseman Charles Teague was named the CWS Most Valuable Player. The Citadel made history in 1990 by becoming the first military school to make an appearance at the College World Series. The Bulldogs were joined that season at the CWS by current conference member Georgia Southern. This past spring College of Charleston was one step away from Omaha, becoming the first league school to advance to the Super Regionals, while Elon earned an at-large berth for its first appearance as a SoCon member. One of the Southern Conference’s more famous baseball alums is Duke’s Dick Groat. The Blue Devil shortstop, who was also a basketball standout, was the conference’s Athlete-of-the-Year in 1951 and 1952. He went on to a 14-year career in the major leagues. In 1960, he was named the National League MVP after he led the league in batting with a .325 average for the World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates. Among Southern Conference alums to grace Major League Baseball fields have been Atlee Hammaker (East Tennessee State), Jeff Montgomery (Marshall) and Mike Ramsey (Appalachian State). SoCon active MLB players include Angels third baseman Dallas McPherson (The Citadel), and pitchers Britt Reames (The Citadel) and Ryan Glynn (VMI) who both pitched with Oakland in 2005. Arnold Palmer, perhaps the most famous golfer to have ever lived, competed under the Southern Conference banner as a collegian at Wake Forest. He took medalist honors at the Southern Conference Tournament in 1948 and 1949 and was the tournament’s runner-up in 1950. Palmer was the medalist at the NCAA Golf Championships in 1949 and 1950. He went on to become one of the most accomplished golfers to play on the professional tour. Palmer won 60 tournaments while competing on the PGA Tour and has added 10 more victories as a member of the Senior PGA Tour. He has also won eight major championships - four Masters, two British Opens, one US Open and one US Amateur. Women’s sports are relatively young in the league’s history. In 1992-93, the Southern Conference celebrated its 10th Anniversary of women’s athletics. Furman golfer Dottie Pepper was named the Southern Conference Women’s Athlete-of-the-Decade in conjunction with that event. Appalachian State’s Mary Jayne Harrelson won the NCAA Outdoor title at 1500 meters in 1999 and 2001. Most

Southern Conference

Before it was a league member, Georgia Southern made five championship appearances with four titles, giving SoCon members 17 title games and nine championships. The Eagles’ six national titles mark the most in I-AA football. Georgia Southern won back-to-back national championships in 1985-86 and 1989-90. In 1988, Furman won the I-AA national championship in its second trip to the title game.The Paladins defeated Georgia Southern 17-12, avenging a loss to the Eagles in the 1985 championship game. Marshall ended its I-AA tenure with its second national title. The Thundering Herd advanced to the national championship game five times during the 1990s, winning the title over Youngstown State in 1992 and Montana in 1996. Prior to the conference’s reclassification, Southern Conference football teams appeared in a total of 34 bowl games, posting a record of 16-17-2. There are nearly 40 former Southern Conference players in the College Football Hall of Fame. One of the most recognizable of these names is former North Carolina running back Charlie “Choo Choo” Justice. During his four years as a Tar Heel, Justice helped guide North Carolina to three major bowl appearances. He was a first team All-America selection in 1948 and 1949. In 1949, Justice earned first team all-conference honors for the fourth consecutive season, becoming the first player in league history to achieve that feat. Only three other football players have earned all-conference honors four times since Justice. Another of the league’s football products that made it to the College Football Hall of Fame is Sam Huff of West Virginia. Huff was a three-year starter on both the offensive and defensive lines for the Mountaineers. In 1955, Huff earned first team All-America honors on the field and was a first team Academic All-America for his work in the classroom. He played 12 seasons in the National Football League for the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins. He was a five-time All-Pro defensive lineman and is also a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In recent years, the SoCon has continued to produce outstanding studentathletes. Two of the last seven winners of the Walter Payton Award have come from the Southern Conference. Georgia Southern’s Adrian Peterson captured the trophy given annually to Division I-AA’s most outstanding offensive player in 1999. Furman’s Louis Ivory was awarded the honor in 2000. Appalachian State’s Dexter Coakley was a three-time all-conference selection and consensus All-America in 1994, ’95 and ’96 before going on to stardom with the Dallas Cowboys. Coakley won a pair of Buck Buchanan Awards, given to I-AA’s top defensive player each year. Terrell Owens went from catching passes at Chattanooga to a stellar NFL career with the San Francisco 49ers. Western Carolina’s David Patten and Appalachian State’s Matt Stevens were both members of the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl Champion team in 2002 and Patten also earned Super Bowl rings with the Patriots in 2004 and ’05.

THE CHOSEN CHALLENGE...

Southern Conference

recently, Furman’s Brandi Jackson won the NCAA Women’s Golf East Regional in the spring of 2003. COACHES AND ADMINISTRATORS The Southern Conference has also been a breeding ground for some of college athletics’ most recognized coaches and administrators. Legendary basketball coaches Adolph Rupp of Kentucky and Everett Case of North Carolina State both worked the sidelines in the Southern Conference. Rupp guided the Wildcats to a 30-5 mark during the 1931 and 1932 seasons. Yet, for all his coaching accomplishments, Rupp never led Kentucky to a Southern Conference tournament championship. Case mentored the Wolfpack to six consecutive Southern Conference Tournament championships from 1947 through 1952. In North Carolina State’s final season in the league, the Wolfpack won the regular season title but fell in the tournament championship game to Wake Forest, 71-70. Despite coaching in the conference for just seven seasons, Case is the ninth winningest coach in league history and averaged 26.7 wins per year during his tenure, the best mark in conference history. Case was named Southern Conference Coach-of-the-Year three times. Lefty Driesell, most recently the head coach at Georgia State, coached Davidson to three Southern Conference Tournament championships in 1966, 1968 and 1969. Driesell also won the league’s Coach-of-the-Year award four straight times from 1963 through 1966. Former Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins earned league Coach-of-theYear honors three times in the late ’70s and early ’80s while at Appalachian State. Terry Holland saw his basketball coaching career take off at Davidson when he returned to his alma mater in 1970. Holland was honored as the Southern Conference Coach-of-the-Year for three consecutive seasons from 1970-72 and led the Wildcats to the conference tournament title and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 1970. Holland later led Virginia to the Final Four in 1984. After his coaching career concluded, Holland returned to the Southern Conference as the athletic director at Davidson from 1990-1995 before accepting the same position at Virginia. J. Dallas Shirley, a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, spent 21 years as the assistant to the commissioner and supervisor of officials in the Southern Conference. Shirley worked with the conference from 1967 until 1988 under three commissioners: Lloyd P. Jordan, Kenneth G. Germann, and David R. Hart. Shirley was a basketball official in the Southern Conference for 30 years and officiated over 2,000 career games in various leagues. He also served as president of the International Association Basketball Officials and the United States Olympic Basketball Committee. Even the legendary Paul “Bear” Bryant got his coaching start in the Southern Conference as he guided the Maryland Terrapins in 1945. A former Southern Conference football coach who reached “folk legend” status is the late Frank Howard of Clemson, who guided the Tigers as a league member from 1940-52. Howard won 69 Southern Conference games which still ranks tied for fourth on the league’s all-time coaching victories list. The Southern Conference has been represented on the sidelines at five Super Bowls in recent years. Bobby Ross, who piloted the San Diego Chargers to the 1996 Super Bowl, was the head coach at The Citadel from 1973-77. Former Buffalo Bills head coach Marv Levy directed William & Mary from 1964-68. He was succeeded at William & Mary by Lou Holtz. William & Mary competed in the Southern Conference from 1936-77.

The Citadel 2006 Bulldog Football


THE CITADEL FOOTBALL 2006 2005 Season Highlights Four Named Captains for the Season...

Coach Kevin Higgins announced that four seniors -- OL Dusty Benefield, DT Fred Townsend, SLB Porter Johnson and WLB Shawn Grant -- would serve as team captains for the entire season. Serving as captain at The Citadel takes on a special meaning as is an earned duty at a school where leadership is taught along with other liberal arts courses. A Bulldog team captain is a captain for life.

Junior Vince Hill shined in Tallahassee as he picked up his first career interception and fumble return. He made his first pick in The Citadel’s end zone off a pass from quarterback Drew Weatherford for no return. Hill then returned a fumble by Weatherford at The Citadel’s 30-yard line and made a memorable 70-yard return for a touchdown to put the Bulldogs ahead 10-3 in the second quarter.

Johnson Tabbed National and SoCon Defensive Player of the Week...

After making the move from fullback to linebacker in the spring, senior Porter Johnson made a significant impact on the defensive side of the ball. Johnson led the Bulldogs with 11 tackles (10 solo, one assisted), including six tackles for loss in The Citadel’s 17-7 upset of No. 18 Western Carolina in Cullowhee, N.C., on Oct. 1.The 11 tackles is the most he recorded in a single game during his brief defensive career (4 games at the time), and tied for the most in 2005 (with Josh Lawson vs. Ole Miss). For Johnson’s efforts at Western Carolina, he earned The Sports Network’s National Defensive Player of the Week in addition to the SoCon’s Player of the Week.

Vince Hill Shines at Florida State...

Georgia Southern, 28-24, in Statesboro. It also marked the first time that the Bulldogs defeated a SoCon rival in consecutive years since beating military foe VMI in 1999 (7-6) and in 1998 (36-10). The Citadel defense did its part against Western Carolina, holding the Catamounts to only 14 yards rushing (33 carries) and no offensive points (their only score came on a 92-yard kickoff return). Western Carolina, previously ranked No. 18 in I-AA, had been averaging 21.7 points and 127.7 yards on the ground per outing.

Goodrum Carries the Load...

Three Overtimes Against Furman...

The Furman game on Oct. 15 was the first overtime game that the Bulldogs played since winning at Chattanooga, 2017, in 2001. It was also The Citadel’s longest game (3:50) of the season and as far as one can determine, it was the longest game ever (since the NCAA adopted the overtime rule). In that game, Furman rallied from a 21-7 deficit to knot the game at 21-21 at the end of regulation. It was 28-28 after the first extra period; 31-31 after the second, and the final was 39-31. Perhaps inspired that it was long-time rival Furman or even that it was Parent’s Day at Johnson Hagood Stadium or even that the televised game was aired on the Armed Forces Network, the Bulldogs played their hearts out. QB Justin Knox made only his second career start and DT Deon Douglas made his first. RB Nuru Goodrum recorded a then team season-high of 89 yards rushing and

Junior running back Nuru Goodrum found his niche during the 2005 season. He was one of the many bright spots for the Bulldogs beginning with his play on Oct. 22 at Georgia Southern. Against the No. 24 Eagles, Goodrum rushed for 118 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries. It marked the first time a Citadel back gained more than 100 yards in a game since Nehemiah Broughton rushed for 181 yards on 27 carries in 2004’s 44-24 win over Chattanooga, a span of 10 games. Against Wofford, he bullied his way to 76 yards on 17 carries, including a long of 15. Against Furman, he had 89 yards on 18 carries and at Chattanooa, he posted 98 yards on 22 carries. In the Elon contest, he rushed 24 times for 97 yards and posted a career high with 175 yards on 32 carries against VMI. In the last six games of the season (Furman, Georgia Southern, Wofford, Chattanooga, Elon and VMI), Goodrum accumulated a total of 653

2005 Review

WR Kinta Palmer was certainly a threat as a wide receiver, but what about him at quarterback? Although the coaches didn’t seriously consider the possibility, it might have merited consideration since Palmer, a graduate of Penn State who is enrolled in The Citadel’s College of Graduate and Professional Studies, threw two passes last season. And the result of those two passes? Each went for a touchdown. Palmer’s first TD pass -- a 31-yarder -- came in the Western Carolina game on Oct. 1 and went to fellow WR Ta’Mar Jernigan. With 7:34 left in the second quarter in the Wofford game on Oct. 28, Palmer took the ball from QB Justin Knox on a first-and-10 and lofted a TD pass to....who else? Jernigan. This time, the unexpected pass-and-catch went for 41 yards and put the Bulldogs on the scoreboard for the first time in the game.

finale -- also on Homecoming -- as the Bulldogs whitewashed Western Carolina, 17-0. Quarterback Ben Carnell made his first career start against the Phoenix and was named the Southern Conference’s Freshman of the Week for his efforts. Carnell, a 6-2, 205-pound quarterback from Hanahan, led the Bulldogs offensively with two firsthalf touchdown passes. The true freshman earned his first career start after beginning the season on the scout team and at one point, the coaches considered redshirting him. But against Elon, Carnell was 14-of20 passing for 152 yards in his debut, and earned the team’s Hero Award for his effort.

“This was a great win for our seniors and a game that they will remember for the rest of their lives,” said Higgins. “VMI never backed down,” he added. “We knew it would be a battle, and it was.”

Against Elon on Homecoming (Nov. 12), the Bulldogs’ defense pitched their first shutout of the season. Interestingly, the last time The Citadel defense held their opponents scoreless came in the 2004 season’s

Quarterback Carousel...

After sophomore Duran Lawson was injured (ACL) on the last play of the third quarter at Western Carolina on Oct. 1, the Bulldogs starting quarterback position became a game of musical chairs. Lawson was replaced in that game -- and the next four contests -- by redshirt freshman Justin Knox. After a disappointing performance in the Wofford game, coach Kevin Higgins started redshirt freshman Steve Tumbleston at Chattanooga and promised the week prior that true freshman Ben Carnell would see game action. Carnell entered the Chattanooga game in the second quarter and played the remainder of the game. In Tumbleston’s first career start at Chattanooga, he scored a touchdown on his first

career rush, a 7-yarder in the Bulldogs’ opening drive. His first career pass also went for seven yards (a screen to Rontreal Tyler). For the game, Tumbleston was 3for-10 for 31 yards, including a long of 27 yards to Kinta Palmer. Carnell entered the game in the second quarter (the Bulldogs’ fifth possession; 14:15 left) and played the rest of the game. He finished 18-of-31 for a team-high 197 yards (and two interceptions), including a long of 34 yards (to Palmer). Against Elon, Carnell connected on his first two career touchdown passes, hitting TE Aaron Kelly for a 20-yard score and later to Ta’Mar Jernigan on an 18-yard pass-and-catch. Playing the entire Elon game, Carnell was 14-of-20 for 152 yards with one interception and went 11-of-22 for 81 yards in the victory against VMI.

Porter Johnson Named SoCon Defensive Player of the Week… Again...

For the second time in 2005, Citadel linebacker Porter Johnson was named the Southern Conference’s Defensive Player of the Week on November 21. A 5-10, 220-pound senior from Loris, Johnson is a converted fullback who played his first season at linebacker. Against military rival VMI on Saturday in Lexington, Va., in which the Bulldogs won, 22-14, Johnson recorded a

team-high 13 tackles (six solo, seven assists). He also had five tackles for loss (for a minus 28 yards), two forced fumbles and four sacks (for a loss of 25 yards). He finished sixth in the conference averaging 7.8 tackles per game and third among the sack leaders with a total of 6.5. Johnson tied a school record with his four sacks as Cliff Washburn did it in 2002. On one particular sack, Johnson literally leaped over a VMI would-be tackler. It marked the second time in 2005 that Johnson has reaped the award with the first time coming against Western Carolina on Oct. 1, where he was also named The Sports Network’s National Defensive Player of the Week. It was the fourth time in 2005 that the Southern Conference recognized a Citadel football player. In addition to Johnson’s two cita-

Shawn Grant Leads Three Bulldogs on Coaches’ All-SoCon Four Bulldogs Earn All-SoCon Honors From the Media... Team... Linebacker Shawn Grant, who spearheaded the best rushing defense in the league, led a list of three Citadel Bulldogs who were named to the Coaches’ All-Southern Conference Team.

Four members of The Citadel’s football team -- three of which play defense -- were named to the media’s version of the AllSouthern Conference Team. Defensive linemen James Wilson and Fred Townsend, linebacker Porter Johnson and wide receiver Ta’Mar Jernigan earned second team recognition from professional journalists who cover Southern Conference football.

Grant was the lone first-team pick for The Citadel, which finished 4-7 in coach Kevin Higgins’ first season, while defensive lineman James Wilson and defensive back Avery Dingle earned second team accolades. Grant, who was a first-team selection in 2004, joined fullback Everette Sands and free safety Lester Smith as the college’s only two-time first-team selections by the coaches. Sands earned the citations in 1992 and ‘93, while Smith posted the back-to-back awards in 1991 and ‘92. Grant, a 5-9, 215-pound senior from Sumter, finished fifth on the team with 60 total tackles although hampered the last three games of the season with a turf-toe injury that snapped his string of 27 consecutive starts. He finished the season with seven tackles for loss, one sack, two pass breakups and one fumble recovery. Wilson, the team’s fastest player, is a 6-2, 240-pound junior from North Myrtle Beach. He had 43 tackles with nine tackles for loss, four

Wilson, a junior from North Myrtle Beach who is 6-2 and weighs 240 pounds, is the team’s fastest player while Townsend, at 6-2 and 260 pounds, is a senior from Bennettsville. Johnson, who twice earned Southern Conference Defensive Player of the Week citations along with honors from The Sports Network as their National Player of the Week (after the Oct. 1 game at Western Carolina), is a 5-10, 220-pound senior from Loris. Jernigan, who led the team with five touchdown receptions, is a 6-0, 170 pound sophomore from Lake City, Fla.

THE CHOSEN CHALLENGE... Game #1- Sept. 3 The Citadel 28, Charleston Southern 14

Game #2- Sept. 10 No. 11 Florida State 62,The Citadel 10

Charleston, S.C. - Sophomore quarterback Duran Lawson connected on three touchdown passes as The Citadel wore down cross-county rival Charleston Southern, 28-14, in non-conference action at Johnson Hagood Stadium Saturday night in the openers for both teams. The Bulldogs’ victory made first-year head coach Kevin Higgins’ Citadel debut successful. Higgins spent the last four years as an assistant for the Detroit Lions after a successful seven-year stint as head coach at Lehigh. Lawson successfully unveiled Higgins’ spread-option offense after a shaky first half that saw The Citadel ahead, 7-0. But it was the Bulldogs’ stingy defense that wore down the Buccaneers’ offense that generated 314 total yards under junior quarterback Collin Drafts. The Citadel amassed 360 yards of total offense with 192 coming on the ground and 168 through the air. The defense limited the Bucs to only 38 yards rushing on 32 carries. The victory was The Citadel’s third consecutive over Charleston Southern in the series that began in 2002. Last year’s contest was cancelled due to the threat of Hurricane Frances. Lawson, a native of Conway, SC, tossed his first touchdown pass to Ta’Mar Jernigan, an 11-yarder with 5:09 remaining in the first quarter, which served as the half’s lone tally. CSU opened the second half with a seven-play, 82-yard drive with Drafts connecting with Brian Meers for 16-yard pass-and-catch with 12:30 left in the third period. The Bucs took the lead on their next possession after Lawson fumbled on the Bulldogs’ 35 yard line, and Drafts scored on a two-yard rush with 11:06 remaining, making the score 14-7. The hosting Bulldogs knotted the score at 14 apiece with 4:54 left in the third quarter when Lawson found Gary Domanski alone on the right side and Domanski broke several tackles with key down-field blocks coming from Jernigan and tackle Cale Conant for a 37-yard touchdown. But in the final period, The Citadel wore down the Bucs with two touchdowns. The first came with 12:23 remaining as Lawson found recent Penn State graduate Kinta Palmer on the right side and scored from 33 yards out. The final score came with 9:53 remaining when Lawson ran off tackle from five yards out.

Tallahassee, Fla. - Florida State freshman quarterback Drew Weatherford bounced back after struggling in his first collegiate start to throw for 342 yards and two touchdowns as No. 11 Florida State beat The Citadel, 62-10, on Sept. 10 at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee in front of 79,152 fans, the third largest crowd ever to see the Bulldogs play. A couple of mistakes by Weatherford and an interception thrown by freshman Xavier Lee kept The Citadel in the game during the first half. Senior strong safety Avery Dingle tallied the second pick of his career after he intercepted a pass by Lee to set up a 45- yard field goal by junior Blake Vandiver to tie the game 3-3 five minutes into the first quarter. Vandiver’s 45-yarder was a career-high for the Gainesville, Ga. native. Sophomore safety Vince Hill recorded a pick of his own, the first of his career, as he intercepted a pass from Weatherford deep in The Citadel’s endzone to prevent a Florida State touchdown. Late in the first half, Hill then returned a fumble 70 yards to put the Bulldogs up 10-3. The lead was shortlived as the Seminoles charged down the field to tie it up. A botched snap by The Citadel then set up a field goal for Florida State with only four seconds left in the first half. The kick was good and Florida State headed into the locker room with a 13-10 lead. The Seminoles came back in the third quarter to record five touchdowns to take control of the game. Weatherford completed 26 of 37 passes. His backup, Xavier Lee, was yanked after a first-half interception, but passed for 143 yards and a touchdown in mop-up action. Lee also ran 24 yards for another score in the fourth quarter, finishing with 629 total yards. Tailbacks Leon Washington, Lorenzo Booker and freshman Antone Smith each ran for scores in the third quarter and Weatherford finished off his night’s work with a 40-yard touchdown pass to 6-foot-6 freshman Greg Carr, who moments later grabbed a 10-yard scoring pass from Lee. The outmanned Citadel was dominated by Florida State’s defense, managing just 91 yards total offense and five first downs. Meanwhile, Florida State’s two freshmen quarterbacks connected with 11 different receivers.

THE CITADEL FOOTBALL 2006 Game #3- Sept. 24 No. 22 Appalachian State 45,The Citadel 13

Game #4- Oct. 1 The Citadel 17, No. 18 Western Carolina 7

Charleston, S.C. - All-America quarterback candidate Richie Williams threw for a season-high 259 yards and three touchdowns as No. 22-ranked Appalachian State downed The Citadel, 45-13, in Southern Conference action Saturday afternoon at Johnson Hagood Stadium. Williams completed 20 of 27 passes in leading the Mountaineers to their third victory of the season against one loss, and puts them atop the Southern Conference standings with an 1-0 record. The Citadel, which had an off week after a 62-10 loss at Florida State, falls to 1-2 overall and 0-1 in the league. The Bulldogs also fall to 28-13 after playing a Division I-A opponent. Williams also extended his streak of consecutive pass attempts without an interception to 144. The Citadel took an early 7-0 lead when Nuru Goodrum scampered a yard, and Williams then got on track and connected with Dexter Jackson on a 31-yard scoring strike with 3:47 left in the opening quarter. ASU then scored 14 unanswered points as Williams hit Hans Batichon on a 19yard touchdown pass to give the Mountaineers a 14-7 advantage.The visitors from Boone, N.C. added a second score in the second period when Kevin Richardson ran three yards for a touchdown to increase App State’s lead to 21-7 with only 20 seconds remaining in the initial half. The Citadel opened the third period with a touchdown when quarterback Duran Lawson found Ta’Mar Jernigan in the left side of the end zone for a 16-yard scoring strike, decreasing App State’s lead to 21-13. The Bulldogs failed to connect on the extra point. The Mountaineers then followed with 17 unanswered points, starting with Trey Hennessee’s 3-yard run with 14:12 left in the game. Kicker Julian Rauch then hit a 26-yard field goal with 11:33 left, and left end Marcus Murrell picked up a Lawson fumble and returned it for a touchdown with 6:39 left to complete the game’s scoring. App State rolled up 423 yards of total offense nearly doubling the 219 for the Bulldogs. For the second straight game, the Bulldogs failed to reach the 100-yard rushing mark, compiling only 69 net yards on 42 rushes. On the day, in which temperatures reached into the low 90s, Williams paced the Mountaineers’ rushing attack with 94 yards. Goodrum led The Citadel in rushing with 39 yards.

Cullowhee, N.C. - The 18th-ranked Western Carolina football team tried to rally late, but could not overcome some trickery —a touchdown pass by Citadel receiver Kinta Palmer — and a quick score off a turnover — a TD reception by Palmer — as the Bulldogs held on for a 17-7 upset victory over the Catamounts Saturday night before 10,067 at E.J. Whitmire Stadium/Bob Waters Field. With 4:09 left in the first half,The Citadel (2-2, 1-1 Southern Conference) started a drive on the 20 yard line after a touchback on a Catamount punt. Montrell Lee immediately put the Bulldogs in scoring range with a 49-yard run. One play later, Palmer looked to run an end-around, but pulled up and hit an open Ta’Mar Jernigan for a 23-yard touchdown. Then, with under 20 seconds left in the half, Bulldog defensive end Deon Douglas sacked Western’s Justin Clark inside the WCU 30 and forced a fumble, which was recovered by The Citadel’s Fred Townsend. On the next play, Bulldog quarterback Duran Lawson found Palmer in the left corner of the endzone with just six seconds left for a score, giving The Citadel a 14-0 lead at the break. Neither team had much offensive success in the third quarter and most of the fourth. However, late in the fourth quarter, Blake Vandiver, who missed a 37-yard field goal earlier in the period, padded The Citadel’s lead to 17-0 with five minutes left, connecting from 38 yards out and effectively putting the game out of reach. Western immediately answered on the ensuing kickoff. The kick went to J.C. Brown, but he lateralled the ball to Nick Miller across the field and the speedy sophomore found paydirt 92 yards later. It was Western’s first kick return for a touchdown since Xavier Godard accomplished the feat versus Georgia Southern — a 100-yarder — on Oct. 11, 2003. It was also the 10th-longest kickoff return in WCU history. After a failed on-side kick by the Cats, Western would force The Citadel to punt on a three-and-out series. Starting from their own 16, Clark led the Catamounts down the field to the Bulldog two. However, a penalty and incomplete passes on third and fourth downs preserved the win for The Citadel. Both defenses played well on the evening with The Citadel gaining just 237 yards of total offense and Western managing just 166.Also, Citadel was just 3-of-15 on third down conversions and the Cats were just 3-of-18.With that, both punters played key roles in the game. Bulldog punter Mark Kaspar averaged 43.4 yards on 10 punts, including a career-long of 53.The difference being Western was penalized eight times, while the Bulldogs were whistled just four times. Offensively for the Bulldogs, Lee led the way rushing 13 times for 87 yards, an average of 6.7 yards per carry. Lawson finished the night completing 9-of-15 passes for 60 yards and a TD. Jernigan hauled in a game-high five passes for 45 yards.

THE CHOSEN CHALLENGE... Game #5- Oct. 8 Mississippi 27,The Citadel 7

Game #6- Oct. 15 No. 5 Furman 39,The Citadel 31 (3OT)

Oxford, Miss. - The Citadel held Mississippi to only a field goal by halftime, but the powerful Southeastern Conference squad bounced back in the second half to defeat the Bulldogs 27-7 Saturday afternoon. Rebel running back Mico McSwain hit the century mark with 105 yards on the ground to help lead Ole Miss in front of 50,272 fans at Vaught-Hemmingway Stadium. For the second time this season, The Citadel was competitive for a half against a I-A team. The Bulldogs, who trailed No. 4 Florida State 13-10 at halftime of an eventual 62-10 loss, kept this one close for a while, too. Ole Miss led 3-0 at halftime on a 44-yard field goal by Will Moseley, and the Rebels had minus-16 yards rushing in the first half. The Rebels then extended their lead to 10-0 on the first drive of the second half as Travis Johnson picked up a fumble by Citadel quarterback Justin Knox and carried it 16 yards for the score. The hard-nosed defense put the Bulldogs on the board when senior safety Avery Dingle returned an interception for a 44-yard touchdown at the 12:02 mark in the third quarter. Dingle’s pick was his third career interception and second of the season, with his last coming at Florida State in the season’s second game. Ole Miss then scored 20 unanswered points to solidify the victory for the Rebels, their second against three losses. Senior quarterback Michael Spurlock rushed a yard for a score and Spurlock then connected with Mike Espy three minutes later for a four-yard touchdown to give Ole Miss a 24-7 advantage. A second field goal by Moseley in the fourth made the final 27-7. In his collegiate debut, Knox, a redshirt freshman from Union, threw for 21 yards completing five of 14 passes with one interception.

Charleston, S.C. - Fullback Jerome Felton rushed for three touchdowns, including the go-ahead score and the two-point conversion, as No. 5 Furman escaped The Citadel at Johnson Hagood Stadium with a 39-31 victory in three overtimes. Felton’s 16-yard scamper and two-point run gave the Paladins (6-1, 2-1 in the Southern Conference) their final margin of victory.The Bulldogs (3-3, 1-2) had one last chance to keep the game alive, but redshirt freshman quarterback Justin Knox’s pass took Kinta Palmer out of bounds in the corner of the right end zone on fourth and nine from the 14, and Furman celebrated their ninth win in their last 11 tries against their long-time state rivals. The teams traded touchdowns in the first overtime. Furman quarterback Renaldo Gray snuck in from one-yard out and Scott Beckler’s extra-point made it a 28-21 lead for the Paladins, their first since they jumped out to a 7-0 advantage on their first offensive possession of the game. The Citadel came right back to tie it as Knox ran it in from three yards out and Blake Vandiver’s extra-point sent the contest to a second overtime. The schools traded field goals in the second overtime, a 45-yarder by Vandiver, tying his career best, and a 35-yarder by Beckler, which tied the contest at 31 and sent it into a third overtime. Furman starting quarterback Ingle Martin left the game with cramps at the beginning of the fourth quarter, bringing back-up Renaldo Gray in the contest. He immediately ignited an offense that had come in averaging more than 38 points and 482 yards but trailed 21-7. He capped off an 87-yard scoring drive with a 30-yard touchdown pass to Justin Stepp, and Beckler’s extra-point trimmed the Bulldogs’ lead to 21-14 with 13 minutes left in the contest. Gray then led the Paladins on an 11-play, 64-yard scoring drive that ended with Felton burrowing in for his second touchdown of the game on fourth-and-goal from the two yard line. Beckler’s extra-point knotted up the score at 21 with 48 seconds remaining in regulation. Furman ended with 460 yards of total offense, 234 of them coming after the third quarter, compared to 270 for the Bulldogs. Tailback Nuru Goodrum ignited the offense all day, rushing for a season-high 93 yards on 18 carries. Knox finished 22-36 for 130 yards and a touchdown in his second collegiate start. The Paladins jumped on the board on their first offensive possession of the contest. Martin’s 53-yard pass to Brian Stone set Furman at the one-yard line, and Felton powered his way into the end zone on the very next play. Beckler kicked the point after to hand the Paladins a 7-0 lead. Goodrum provided an offensive spark for The Citadel their first time on offense, as he broke off a run of 20 yards and caught a 13-yard pass to put the Bulldogs on Furman’s 25. On-third-and-goal from the eight, Knox passed to Palmer who found his way over the goal line for his third touchdown reception of the season.Vandiver added the extra point to tie the contest 7-7. The Bulldog defense forced a turnover late in the first half as a Martin fumble was recovered by James Wilson at the Furman 17. A personal foul on the Paladins sent The Citadel inside the 10, and on secondand-goal from the eight, Montrell Lee beat the Furman defense to the corner of the end zone for a score. Vandiver’s extra point gave the Bulldogs a 14-7 lead with 43 seconds remaining in the first quarter. The Citadel again forced a turnover late in the first half as a flea flicker attempt by the Paladins was foiled by cornerback Brandon Hawkins, who made a diving interception at the one-yard line. The Citadel forced three turnovers on the day as Josh Lawson intercepted a Gray pass in the fourth quarter. The Bulldogs headed into halftime with a 14-7 lead and an upset in their grasp. The Citadel offense was once again lifted by Goodrum in the third quarter, when he broke off a run of 34 yards that sent the Bulldogs to the Furman 33-yard line. Chris Gibbs capped off a 13-play, 91-yard scoring drive with a three-yard run and Vandiver converted the extra-point to give The Citadel a 21-7 lead with 5:31 left in the third quarter.

THE CITADEL FOOTBALL 2006 Game #7- Oct. 22 No. 24 Georgia Southern 49,The Citadel 14

Game #8- Oct. 29 Wofford 28,The Citadel 10

Johnson Hagood Stadium - Charleston, S.C. Charleston, S.C. - The Wofford ground game, which rolled up 291 yards and was led by running back Adrian Young who ran for 72 yards and a touchdown, proved to be the difference as the Terriers defeated The Citadel, 28-10, in Southern Conference action Saturday afternoon at Johnson Hagood Stadium. It was Wofford’s seventh straight win against the Bulldogs (2-6 overall, 1-4 in the Southern Conference) and their fourth consecutive victory in Charleston.The Terriers (5-3, 3-2) have now won three of their last four contests while The Citadel dropped its fourth consecutive game. Wofford jumped on the board first with 6:52 left in the opening quarter as wide receiver Brandon Berry took a reverse 27 yards for a touchdown, capping off a 51-yard scoring drive. Berry’s touchdown followed a conversion by running back Adrian Young on fourth and one from the Bulldog 29. The defense helped the Terriers add to their lead early in the second quarter as nose tackle Katon Bethay intercepted a tipped Justin Knox pass at the Bulldog 21. Young capitalized on the opportunity as he raced to the end zone from 12 yards out to make the score 14-0 with 13:39 left in the first half. The Bulldogs would get back in the contest with some ingenuity on offense. With 7:34 left in the half, first year head coach Kevin Higgins reached into his bag of tricks and called for a wide receiver screen pass from Kinta Palmer to T’Mar Jernigan for a 41-yard yard touchdown that put the Bulldogs on the scoreboard, cutting the lead to 14-7. The Citadel missed an opportunity to tie the contest early in the second half as Justin Matherson recovered a Berry fumble to put the Bulldogs at the Terriers’ 20. Knox later coughed up the ball at the Wofford one-yard line and linebacker Derek Newberry recovered for the Terriers killing the drive. The Bulldogs’ defense held Wofford to a three-and-out series following the fumble and forced the Terriers to punt from their own end zone. The Citadel took advantage of the good field position as kicker Blake Vandiver nailed a 36-yard field goal to make it 14-10 with 7:22 left in the third quarter. The Bulldogs would get no closer as the Terriers took control of the contest with an eight-play, 70-yard scoring drive. With 12:07 left in the game, quarterback Josh Collier went around left guard for a one-yard touchdown run and Robinson’s point after made it 21-10. The Terriers put the game out of reach when defensive end Layton Baker intercepted another tipped Knox pass and returned it 14 yards for a touchdown with 11:19 left in the game. Halfback Gabriel Jackson added 17 carriers for 69 yards for the Terriers while quarterback Josh Collier ran for 61 yards on 17 attempts. The Citadel tailback Nuru Goodrum led the Bulldogs as he rushed for 76 yards on 17 carries.

Allen E. Paulson Stadium - Statesboro, Ga.

Statesboro, Ga. - Running back Jermaine Austin rushed for 137 yards and seven different Eagles scored touchdowns as 24th-ranked Georgia Southern handled The Citadel, 49-14, in Southern Conference action Saturday afternoon at Allen E. Paulson Stadium. The Eagles, coming off a disappointing 24-7 loss at Appalachian State last week, rolled up 517 yards of offense and improved to 5-3 (4-2 in the Southern Conference) on the season while the Bulldogs, which have now dropped three straight games, fall to 2-5 overall (1-3 in the league). After the Bulldogs’ defense forced the Eagles to punt on their first possession, The Citadel drove 67 yards on five plays to lead, 7-0, when Nuru Goodrum ran over left tackle and then cut right for 37 yards with 10:05 remaining in the opening quarter. On their next possession, GSU evened the score when Brandon Andrews ran over right tackle from two-yards out with 8:17 remaining. The Eagles added another touchdown and led for the first time, 14-7, when Bulldogs’ quarterback Justin Knox’s screen pass was intercepted by Jason Earwood at The Citadel 30-yard line and returned for a touchdown with 4:42 left in the quarter. It was the most points the Bulldogs allowed in the first quarter all season. Georgia Southern added three more touchdowns in the second period starting with Lynon Jefferson’s five-yard TD run on the second quarter’s opening play. On the Bulldogs’ next possession, Knox was faced with a 4th-and-1 from the GSU 28 but was dropped for a two-yard loss, turning the ball over on downs. The Eagles’ Marquice Maynard scored from four yards out with 5:51 left and GSU added another score when Jayson Foster found receiver Chris Dickerson from 23 yards out to increase the score to 35-7. The Citadel opened the second half with an 84-yard, 15-play drive that took 8:03 off the clock when Knox connected with tight end Aaron Kelly from three yards out to make the score, 35-14. It was Kelly’s first career touchdown reception. GSU promptly added another touchdown when Foster rushed three yards with 4:54 remaining in the third period, making the score 42-14.The Eagles added their final score with 11:23 left when Darius Smiley rushed for 15 yards, increasing the score to 49-14. Goodrum led the Bulldogs in rushing with 118 yards, the first 100-yard rushing performance for The Citadel this season.

Game #9- Nov. 5 Chattanooga 31,The Citadel 21

Game #10- Nov. 12 The Citadel 21, Elon 0

Flinley Stadium - Chattanooga, Tenn.

Johnson Hagood Stadium - Charleston, S.C.

Chattanooga, Tenn. - Tailback Eldra Buckley rushed for 187 yards and three touchdowns as the Chattanooga Mocs withheld a Citadel comeback to preserve a 31-21 victory in Southern Conference action Saturday afternoon at Finley Stadium. With the victory, the Mocs improve to 6-4 overall (3-3 in league play) and are assured of their first winning record since 1997. The Bulldogs fall to 2-7 overall (1-5 in the SoCon) and have dropped their last five contests. Chattanooga raced to a 24-7 lead and held off the Bulldogs, which scored the next 14 points to pull within three points, 24-21. But Mocs quarterback Antonio Miller scored on a keeper from seven yards out to seal the win. The Bulldogs scored on their opening possession when Steve Tumbleston scored from seven yards out on his first career rush. The six-play, 63-yard drive took only 1:32 off the clock, and was highlighted by Ta’Mar Jernigan’s 32-yard end around which was the longest run of his career. Chattanooga responded with 24 unanswered points with Buckley rushing over right tackle for 25 yards and a touchdown to knot the game. He then ran over left guard for four yards and another score, this time with 5:56 remaining in the opening quarter. The Mocs extended their lead to 21-7 in the second quarter when Buckley scored for the third time in the half, this time from 35 yards out. Kicker Estaban Lopez nailed a 23-yard field goal to extend the Mocs’ lead to 24-7. The Bulldogs retaliated with a touchdown in the closing moments of the half when Nuru Goodrum scored from a yard out with 52 seconds left to pull within 10 points, 24-14. The Citadel opened the second half with a successful 10-play, 70-yard drive that took 3:39 off the clock and was highlighted by Goodrum’s one-yard dash to bring the Bulldogs to within three points, 24-21, with 8:14 left in the period. The Mocs responded with the final tally, this time a 13-play drive that was capped by Miller’s keeper from seven yards out to increase their lead to 31-21, which was the score at the end of the third period and the final margin. Goodrum paced the Bulldogs’ rushing attack with 98 yards and two touchdowns. Carnell finished with an 18-for-31 performance and 197 yards passing, the most passing yards of any Bulldog this season.

Charleston, S.C. - The Citadel defense limited Elon to 230 total yards and snapped a five-game losing streak in shutting out the Phoenix, 21-0, in the season’s home finale at Johnson Hagood Stadium Saturday afternoon. It was the Bulldogs’ (3-7 overall, 2-5 Southern Conference) first shutout since the home finale in 2004 when they kept Western Carolina off the scoreboard in a 17-0 victory. The Bulldogs also improve to 33-20 in Homecoming games. The Phoenix (3-7, 0-6) were shutout for the first time in 14 contests. The last time Elon had been held scoreless was on Oct. 23, 2004, against Furman. After a scoreless first period, the Bulldogs got their offense going on the first play of the second quarter when a 19-yard pass from freshman quarterback Ben Carnell to wide receiver Kinta Palmer put The Citadel at their own 34. Two plays later, another long pass play of 22 yards from Carnell to wide receiver Ta’Mar Jernigan placed the Bulldogs on Elon’s 31. Carnell completed an eight play, 80-yard scoring drive with a 20-yard pass to tight end Aaron Kelly to put the Bulldogs up 7-0 with 12:23 left in the second quarter. On their very next possession, Carnell, who was making his first career start, continued his aerial assault with a 34-yard completion to wide receiver Mark Wigal at the Phoenix 32. The Citadel added to their lead with an 18-yard touchdown pass from Carnell to Jernigan. After a five play, 70-yard scoring drive, the Bulldogs had a 14-0 lead with 6:47 left in the first half. The Bulldogs caught a break late in the third quarter as a punt by Mark Kaspar bounded off Elon’s Dwayne Ijames, and Nick Fender recovered for The Citadel at the Phoenix four-yard line. On the first play of the final period, running back Nuru Goodrum, who finished with 97 yards rushing on the day, took advantage of the good field position as he plowed to pay dirt from two yards out to increase the Bulldog advantage to 21-0 with 14:56 left in the contest. In what turned out to be their best scoring opportunity of the game, Elon took a gamble on their first offensive possession. After advancing the ball to the Citadel 28, the Phoenix elected to go for it on 4th- and-four. The Bulldogs’ defense held, however, as quarterback Kye Hamilton’s pass that was intended for wide receiver Casey Hall fell incomplete. Carnell went 14-20 for 152 yards with two touchdowns and an interception on the day. Palmer and Jernigan were his favorite targets as they each caught three passes apiece.

2005 Review

Lexington, Va. - Nuru Goodrum rushed for a career-high 175 yards and scored two touchdowns as The Citadel downed VMI, 22-14, in the 64th meeting of the “Military Classic of the South” Saturday afternoon. With the victory, the Bulldogs retain possession of the coveted Silver Shako and conclude Coach Kevin Higgins’ inaugural season with a 4-7 record, including wins in the final two outings. The Keydets slip to 3-8. The Citadel has now won two in row over VMI, three of the last four, six of the last eight and 11 of the last 15.The Bulldogs extend its lead in the series that began in 1920 to 32-30-2. In the first half, the Bulldogs opened the game’s scoring when Ben Carnell found Kinta Palmer open in the end zone for an eight-yard touchdown strike and the extra point failed. It marked the fourth time in the last five games that The Citadel scored first. Down 6-0, the Keydets battled back and took a brief lead with 3:28 left in the initial quarter when running back Nat Jackson scored on a three-yard run and Barrett Way connected on the point after, lifting VMI to a 7-6 lead. The Citadel retaliated with nine second-quarter points, as Goodrum, a junior who in the first half rushed 18 times for 95 yards, scored from a yard out at the 9:43 mark. The Bulldogs attempted a two-point conversion, but were unsuccessful as Carnell was unable to get off a pass. On The Citadel’s next possession, Blake Vandiver drilled a 34-yard field goal at the 5:48 mark to hand the Bulldogs the 15-7 halftime advantage. The first half saw The Citadel nearly double VMI’s offensive yardage, 167-84, limiting the Keydets to only 46 rushing yards. Each team scored a touchdown in the second half. Goodrum again scored from a yard out to give the Bulldogs a 22-7 lead with 10:40 left in the fourth quarter that capped a six-play, 26-yard drive that took 3:08 off the clock. The Keydets came back in the final period with 7:43 remaining in the game as quarterback Jonathan Wilson scampered six yards up the middle to pull VMI to within eight points, 22-14. The Citadel recorded 288 yards of total offense and limited the Keydets to 189 yards. Citadel quarterback Ben Carnell was 11-of-22 for 81 yards while VMI’s Wilson finished 17-of-28 for 158 yards. Defensively, the Bulldogs were led by Porter Johnson who recorded 13 tackles (six solo). He also had four sacks for minus-25 yards that tied a school record as The Citadel racked up eight sacks on the day. Josh Lawson, Shawn Grant and Andrew Rowell each had seven tackles.

THE CITADEL

FOOTBALL JOHNSON HAGOOD STADIUM The 2006 season marks the 59th year that The Citadel has played football in the friendly confines of historic Johnson Hagood Stadium. The Citadel played its first contest against Davidson on Oct. 16, 1948. Although the Bulldogs lost to the Wildcats in that game, 14-6, The Citadel has been quite successful in the Southern Conference’s largest stadium. Entering the 2006 season, the Bulldogs have marked a 188-120-3 record. The Citadel earned its first victory in Johnson Hagood Stadium in the 1949 season home opener (played Oct. 8th) against state rival Newberry, defeating the Indians, 14-12.The Citadel later compiled a 3-2 record that year, representing the Bulldogs’ first winning season at Johnson Hagood.

Johnson Hagood Stadium, located at the intersection of Hagood Avenue and Congress Street, just a short distance from the Ashley River and The Citadel campus, has been the site for many great Bulldog accomplishments through the years. The Citadel has gone undefeated at Johnson Hagood in six seasons (1956, 1959, 1978, 1981 and 1988) and the Bulldogs reeled off 16 consecutive victories there from 1980 to 1982. In 1992, Marshall and The Citadel played at Johnson Hagood in front of a record “standing room only” crowd of 23,025. The 21,000-seat facility has aided The Citadel in establishing itself as one of the leaders in attendance among Southern Conference schools. The Citadel has led its conference constituents 11 of the last 25 years in average attendance and 15 of the last 31 seasons. Two seasons ago, over 70,000 fans watched Bulldog football in Johnson Hagood Stadium.


The 71,712 fans that attended Citadel games in 2000 totaled the 14th best attendance for all of I-AA football, and second largest in the Southern Conference as defending national champion Georgia Southern was 10th. The Citadel faithful have kept the Bulldogs in the top20 in national attendance for the past seven years. In 2003, Citadel fans created one of the best attendance figures in the nation, ranking seventh nationally at the end of the season. The Citadel ranked in the top-15 three years in a row, 2000 (14th), 2001 (12th) and 2002 (11th), while in 1998 and 1999, the Bulldogs rounded out the top-20 in average attendance. The historic facility, however, gained national attention during the summer of 1999 when prior crewmen from the CSS Hunley, the first submarine to sink an enemy battleship, were unearthed from underneath the stadium. The remains of the sailors from the Confederate sub were re-interred at nearby Magnolia Cemetery.

JOHNSON HAGOOD STADIUM

History of a different kind was made in 2001 when The Citadel opened the brand new Altman Athletic Center that is located in the South end zone. The facility features home and visitor locker rooms, officials’ room and a spacious entertainment area for members of the Brigadier Foundation.

BULLDOGS IN THE PROS Nehemiah Broughton Washington Redskins

The Citadel boasts several players who have gone on to professional football careers, including NFL greats Greg Davis (1987-99), Paul Maguire (1960-70) and Stump Mitchell (1981-88). Just two seasons ago, another Bulldog made his way into the professional ranks as running back Nehemiah Broughton was selected in the seventh round of the NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins. Broughton was the first Bulldog drafted since Travis Jervey was selected in 1995 by the Green Bay Packers in the fifth round. With the drafting of Broughton by the Redskins, The Citadel has now had three players in as many years go on to the NFL. Three seasons ago, Cliff Washburn signed a free agent contract with the New York Giants and went on to sign a two-year deal with the Chicago Bears. Just recently he was picked up by the Dallas Cowboys. Two seasons ago, Lew Dawson earned a freeagent contract with the Cleveland Browns, while both Washburn and Dawson spent the spring playing in NFL Europe.

Altman Foundation Citadel Fund in 1984 as a charitable trust to provide education funding for The Citadel in the form of academic scholarships. Altman was an avid Citadel sports fan who supported the school with athletic scholarships and was a longtime member of The Citadel Brigadier Foundation. He was a lifetime member of The Citadel Alumni Association. His gifts to The Citadel over many years provided funding for numerous projects and the Altman Athletic Center is dedicated to Bill Altman in his memory. Regarding her family’s gift to The Citadel, Mrs. Altman said. “My husband was proud to be a Citadel graduate and my children and I are glad we have the opportunity to honor my husband and their father.”


Seignious Hall The home of The Citadel’s football program, Seignious Hall provides the Bulldogs with one of the most modern and complete facilities of its kind in the Southeast. The building also houses The Citadel Sports Medicine Department as well as the athletic department’s equipment room and weight room. Opening in the spring of 1983, the building is named in honor of one of The Citadel’s former presidents, Lt. Gen. George M. Seignious II. The $1.5 million facility, which sits behind Vandiver Hall and overlooks the Ashley River, was financed through private funds. In addition to housing the football coaching offices, Seignious Hall also has a spacious training room, large dressing rooms, meeting rooms, equipment and facilities storage areas, and a spacious weight room which is supplied with modern weight-training equipment. The weight room has undergone a face lift in the last few years, including the addition of more than 30 new weight training machines, new state-of-the-art flooring, and new cardio equipment that benefits all athletes.

McAlister Field House Orginially constructed in 1939 and renovated in 1989, McAlister Field House serves as the home of The Citadel’s basketball, volleyball and wrestling programs. The facility, which also houses the athletic department’s administrative offices, along with locker rooms for the basketball and baseball teams, has a seating capacity of 6,000.When it was built in 1939, it was referred to as “The Citadel Armory” and seated 4,500 for basketball games. Top to bottom, McAlister Field House is one of the top arenas for its sports in the region for both participants and fans. Even though 6,000 fans can pack into McAlister Field House for a basketball game, no fan is further than 24 rows away from the court. In addition, concession stands and rest room facilities are located on both the first and second floors. With the seats pulled back, there are three full-size basketball courts for practice. During inclement weather,The CItadel’s baseball, football, tennis and track and field teams use the facility. The Citadel has hosted three 6,000-fan “sellout” crowds in basketball since the building’s renovation in the late 80s, including games with Duke (1989), South Carolina (1997) and Collge of Charleston (1999). In January 1998, The Citadel and McAlister Field House hosted the annual All-Academy Wrestling Championship and in the past few years has served as a site of the first two rounds of the Southern Conference Women’s Basketball Tournament. McAlister Field House has also hosted such entertainment acts as Dave Matthews, Widespread Panic, Bob Hope, Kenny Rogers and Patti LaBelle. Events that have utilized the multi-purpose bulding include WCW Wrestling, Charleston Cup Gymanastics Championships, Special Olympics, Moja Arts Festival, Rotary/Red Cross Roundball High School Basketball Classic and a number of high school and collge commencement ceremonies.

THE CHOSEN CHALLENGE... NOTE: The year 1953, when seven schools withdrew to form the Atlantic Coast Conference and 10 remained to provide the Southern Conference much of its present membership, is taken as a convenient starting point for compiling The Citadel’s modern-day football records. Comprehensive records were not maintained before 1953.
