In addition, the department embraces the NCAA's Principles of Sportsmanship and Ethical Conduct. Coaches, student-athletes, cheerleaders, boosters, faculty, staff and all who support intercollegiate athletics are committed to the fundamental values of respect, fairness, civility, honesty, and responsibility. Strict adherence to these principles promotes character development.

2011 outlook Last season, for the first time in three years, SC State did not win or share the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference title and for the first time since the 2007 campaign, the Bulldogs were on the sideline for the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) playoffs. That feeling was not an enjoyable one for head coach Buddy Pough and his staff, neither did it sit well with the Bulldog players. All involved hope to regain the spotlight enjoyed by Norfolk State for 2011. During the off-season and fall, Pough, his staff and players have had an opportunity to make improvements that will ensure that the Bulldogs are in the hunt for the 2012 MEAC title and a return to the FCS playoffs, which will have a 24 team field, beginning in 2013. Despite relying on a lot of newcomers in 2011 – the Bulldogs played 13 true

South Carolina State

freshmen and a total of 21 first-year players if you included eight redshirt freshmen – Pough’s team came within a couple of field goals of a fourth straight MEAC title and an undefeated league campaign. SC State’s league losses were both by three points, 14-17 at Norfolk State and 24-27 to Florida A&M. In both losses, the Bulldogs had trouble in short-yardage situations, failing to move the chains on 4th - and short. That area should be improved in as the 2012 SC State offense has been strengthened up the middle through adjustments and recruiting additions, according to Pough. Overall, in 2012, SC State will have more depth than it has enjoyed the last two seasons. The talent level, especially on offense, should be comparable to 2011, however, experience will be lacking at some positions. And, the defense

5

will have a lot of new faces, including youthful replacements in the secondary, outside linebacker and the “Dog” and “Bandit” positions. A look at the Bulldogs by position is below: QuarterBaCk Veterans Richard Cue (6-1, 180 r-Jr.) and Derrick Wiley (6-1, 190 r-Sr.), along with Wiley’s younger brother Tedarrius Wiley (6-1, 180 r-So.) will battle for the starting duties at quarterback. Cue and Derrick Wiley have the most experience of the three and should be able to flourish in a Bulldog offense that has been tweaked to take advantage of their skills. Derrick Wiley, who was the top backup to record-setting Malcolm Long for two seasons, started the 2011 campaign but sustained a seasonending knee injury against Norfolk State and Cue stepped in to guide the team in the final six games.

Bulldog FootBall


2012 Bulldog outlook Cue finished the year with 80 completions in 147 attempts for 900 yards and seven touchdowns. The Florence native, who was 5-1 in six starts, suffered six interceptions. He emerged from spring drills as the likely starter, however, if Derrick Wiley bounces back strong from his injury, he could be right back in the mix. The Rockingham, NC native was 58 of 115 attempts with six touchdowns and three interceptions before being forced to the sidelines. Tedarrius Wiley is talented, had a solid spring showing and will also get a look at the signal calling duties. In addition, two quarterbacks who had outstanding seasons as high school seniors, are among the Bulldog recruits and will be looked at.

verted cornerback Austin Smith (6-1, 190 So.) and newcomer Taquan West (6-4, 210 Fr.). Pough and his staff would like to see the Bulldog receives become more physical on the field.

wide reCeiver The wide receiver group is one of the most experienced areas for SC State this season. All three starters – Caleb Davis (5-11, 172 r-Jr.), Tyler McDonald (6-3, 190 Jr.) and Thomas Williams (6-0, 195 r-Sr.) -- from the 2011 squad return, and will be joined by the league’s top receiver from 2010, Lennel Elmore, who missed all of last year due to academic deficiencies. McDonald, of Summerville, was the team’s top pass catcher with 41 catches for 573 yards and four touchdowns, including a 69-yard TD reception against Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) member Indiana. Davis was right behind McDonald with 36 receptions for 467 yards and two scores. His 71-yard scoring pass against Delaware State was the longest of the season for the Bulldogs, who also got 17 catches from Williams, totaling 208 yards, with two scoring receptions. Also expected to contribute at wide receiver are Dennis Rowe (6-4, 190 r-So.), Marcus Lloyd (6-3, 210 rJr.), Santez Emory (6-2, 180 r-Jr.), con-

tight end Two-year starter Antwanne Kerr has moved on but a pair of veterans in Trent Barnes (6-3, 250 r-Jr.) and Dwight Brannon (6-2, 230 r-Sr.) will still be available to Coach Pough and his staff. Barnes, of Dublin, Ga. emerged from spring drills as the starter but Brannon, a Jonesville native who missed spring workouts due to a shoulder injury, is expected to push him. The two were used only sparingly last season and had just one catch between them, a 13-yarder by Brannon. In 2012, the Bulldogs hope to involve the tight end in the offense more, that is if they step up and demonstrate quality and efficiency at the position. Also expected to see playing time at the position is Temmarick Hemmingway (65, 220 r-Fr.), who was sharp in the spring and may also lineup at fullback at times.

rB-asheton Jordan

running BaCk SC State can find a great deal of talent and depth at running back. Four players who have started at one time or another are on the 2012 roster. Leading the pack is Asheton Jordan (60, 205 r-Sr.), the most experienced and last year’s top rusher. Jordan, a Summerville native, ran for 774 yards and five scores last season as the featured back for the Bulldogs. He had a careerhigh 226 yards in a 49-38 win over North Carolina Central. Jalen Simmons (5-8, 205 So.), an explosive and hard-nosed runner of Charlotte, NC, started two games as a true freshman in 2011 and is expected to see a lot of action. He finished his freshman campaign with 304 yards and two touchdowns in 70 tries. In addition to Jordan and Simmons, the Bulldogs can call on senior Chris Merrill (5-9, 200 r-Sr.) of Simpsonville who had only 22 carries for 96 yards last season in 11 games, but galloped for over 200 yards in his only start in 2010, and Washington, DC native Charles Brown (5-11, 210 r-So.), who started four games at fullback in 2011 and ranks as one of the top high school runners from the DC area. Brown saw action in 10 games, finishing with 34 yards on 35 carries. The Bulldog backfield may be further crowded by the continued development of fullback Brent Dubose (6-0, 230 r-So.) of Darlington and the addition of redshirt freshman Dondre Lewis-Freeman (5-7, 190 r-Fr.) of Charlotte and newcomer Dondre Brown (6-1, 236 Fr.) of Varnville. oFFenSive line Despite the loss of All-MEAC performer and All-American Juavahr Nathan, a four-year starter, the SC State offensive line is solid as four starters from last year’s squad are back.

Bulldog FootBall


2012 Bulldog outlook Anchoring the line will be guard Sam Hammond (6-3, 300 r-Sr.) of Union, the oldest and most experienced and a candidate for All-MEAC accolades. Surrounding Hammond are talented center Tristan Bellamy (6-3, 305 r-Jr.), a Johnston native and also a candidate for post season honors, and tackle Domanic Wilson (6-5, 280 rSo.) of Lake City, a real surprise last season. Bellamy and Wilson each started all 11 contests in 2011. The line is bolstered by veterans Erskine Johnson (6-2, 285 r-Jr.) of Conway, Gideon Scott (6-3, 310 Sr.) of Atlanta, converted tight end Lambert Givens (6-3, 280 r-Jr.) of Avon, CT, and a pair of outstanding second-year players – Jairon “Shaq” Harrison (6-3, 210 So.) of Charleston and Devin Flowers (6-3, 295 So.) of Charlotte. Harris started six games and Flowers five at guard last year and held their own. Also expected to provide quality play on the line are redshirt freshman Avery Grant (6-3, 295 r-Fr.) of Mullins and Cephas “CJ” Wilson (6-4, 285 rSo.), a redshirt sophomore of Columbia. The Bulldogs, who should field a physical and cohesive unit in 2012, may also get some help on the interior line from redshirts Raheim Barr (6-3, 270 r-Fr.) of Timmonsville and Charles Henderson (6-4, 270 r-Fr.) and its 2012 freshman class. deFenSive SeCondary The secondary was hit hard by the loss of two of the best defensive players on the 2011 squad – safeties Christian Thompson (a 4th-round pick by the Baltimore Ravens) and Dominique Ellis (a free-agent selection by the Kansas City Chiefs). There will be some concerns about overall depth but leadership should come from the likes of Cortney Ingram (5-10, 190 Sr.) of Milledgeville, Ga., who will man the

South Carolina State

“Dog” position, and Darius Drummond (5-11, 190 Jr.) of Asheville, NC and Virginia Beach native Mason Harris (5-10, 175 r-Jr.) and the corners. Ingram started six games last season, recording 47 total tackles, 35 unassisted and six behind the line. Drummond, who was also a big hit as a punt returner, started nine of the 10 games he appeared in and was in on 44 total tackles, 31 solos and added two interceptions and eight pass breakups, a team high, while Mason, who saw action in eight games, recorded 23 tackles, 17 unassisted, with two picks.

dB-Cortney ingram Joining that trio in the secondary will be veteran corners Yari King (5-9, 180 r-Sr.), a one-time starter of Irmo, SC, and New Zion native Josh McFadden (6-9, 175 r-Sr.), a top backup the last two seasons, Jeremy White (5-10, 175 Jr.) of Columbia, the top reserve at “Dog,” along with youngsters Stephen Murhpy (6-1, 180 So.) of Kingsland, Ga., who broke into the starting lineup as a true freshman last season at cornerback but is the

7

leading candidate at strong safety in 2012, Dominique Mitchell (5-10, 180 So.) of Miramar, FL, and Davious Chestnut (5-11, 170 r-Fr.) of Hemingway and transfer Kimaro McFadden (5-11, 200 Jr.) of Riverdale, Ga., who will battle for starting duties at safety. Also expected to contribute are Julius Pendergrass (5-8, 170 So) of Chester, who moves over from wide receiver, and Georgia transfer Jakar Hamilton (6-1, 200 Sr.) of Johnston,SC, redshirt freshman Mariel Cooper (5-11, 175 rFr.) of Sumter, and freshmen Marquise Jones (6-1, 172 Fr.) of Columbia and Shaquan Brock (6-0, 183 Fr.) of St. Mary’s, Ga. lineBaCker The Bulldog linebacker corps sustained some deep losses in AllMEAC performer Donovan Richard (a free-agent signee by the Jacksonville Jaguars) and steady LaTaris Douglas, the starting “Bandit” in the 3-4 defensive set. There is some concern at linebacker as talented Joe Thomas (6-0, 230 r-Jr.) of Blackville is the lone returning starter at the position. Thomas, however, is one of the most outstanding players on the Bulldog defense. The All-MEAC candidate moves from the WLB position to inside at the MLB post. He was second on the team in tackles last season with 100, including a team-high 67 solos, with five tackles for loss, two sacks and a team-leading three interceptions. Thomas will be joined by a bevy of players who played pivotal roles as backups last season. Alex Glover (6-1, 220 So.) of Charlotte, NC and Terrell Fitts of Augusta, Ga., are expected to battle for the starting duties at “Bandit,” while Justin Hughes (6-1, 220 So.) of Virginia Beach and Jerel Miller (5-11, 230 r-Jr.) of Rock Hill emerged from spring drills 1-2 on the depth chart in a battle to take over at WLB.

Bulldog FootBall


2012 Bulldog outlook SC State will also look to its freshman class for help. Expected to battle for some playing time are Reggie Owens (6-2, 220 Fr.) of Statesboro, Ga., and Michael Wilson (5-11, 200 Fr.) of St. Stephen. deFenSive line This year’s defensive line will be young but talented. Only two players – nose guard James “JD” Fulwood (6-3, 285 r-Sr.) of Sumter and James Island native and tackle Leon Smith (6-0, 290 Sr.) -- with starting experience are back. There are, however, a number of talented players who provided solid depth in backup roles in 2011. They include tackle and Columbia native Curtis Hill (6-1, 295 r-So.), ends Arnett James (6-3, 250 Gr.) of Florence and Andrew Carter (6-1, 240 So.) of Hamlet, NC., along with veterans Malcolm Reed (6-2, 270 r-Jr.) of Fayetteville, Ga., and Montrey Pride (6-4, 240 r-Jr.) of Tampa, FL. The defensive line, which lost two starters in Ronell Ferguson and Pat

dl-James Fulwood South Carolina State

Washington, both of who garnered postseason honors, will get a big boost by the return of Marquis Parks (6-3, 270 r-So.) of Lincolnton, Ga., who saw action as a starter in 2010 but missed all of the 2011 campaign. He should start at the left end position. Also expected to contribute are talented redshirt freshmen James Robinson (6-4, 240 r-Fr.) of Goose Creek and Chris Daniels (6-4, 240 r-Fr.) of Effingham, and true freshman Javon Hargraves (62, 295 Fr.) of Salisbury, NC. SpeCialiStS One of the Bulldogs’ biggest losses from the 2011 squad was specialist Blake Erickson, who handled both the placekicking and punting as a four-year starter. A two-time AllAmerican, Erickson rewrote the SC State record books as a kicker and will be sorely missed. Penciled in as his replacement at placekicker coming out of spring drills is Nick Belcher (59,170 r-Jr.) of Sumter, the top backup in 2010 who missed all of last season

dB-darius drummond 8

due to academic deficiencies. Belcher will be pushed by for placekicking and kickoff duties by transfer Will Roper (5-11, 195 r-So.) of Hendersonville, NC, who redshirted last season. Belcher also earned the starting duties as punter and will be backed up by first-year player David Gammon (6-0, 155 r-Fr.) of Central. Nathan Smith (5-11, 210 r-Jr.), who missed the 2011 campaign due to injury, is back for the 2012 season and will share the long snapper duties with David Davis (6-2, 180 Fr.) of Columbia who handled those chores last year. Smith will also be the holder on field goals. In the return department, SC State will look to Drummond and Murphy on punts and Simmons and Elmore on kickoffs. All are very talented and can go the distance anytime. Drummond had 20 punt returns for an average of 13.6 yards and a 68 yarder for a score last year. Simmons averaged 21.0 yards on kickoff returns in 2011.

Oliver “Buddy” Pough is in his 11th season as head football coach at South Carolina State, his alma mater. Since succeeding head coach emeritus Willie Jeffries as Bulldog head coach in 2002, Pough has established SC State football as one of the top programs in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). During a 10-year tenure at the school where he earned a bachelor’s and a master’s as well as All-MEAC honors as an offensive lineman, Pough has compiled an enviable 83-33 overall record and a 64-15 MEAC worksheet. His teams have also captured two MEAC titles (2008 & 2009) outright and shared two others (2004, 2010), and his overall and conference records trail only Jeffries. SC State was 7-4 overall and 6-2 in the MEAC during the 2011 campaign. During the 2010 season, the Bulldogs finished 9-3 and were 7-1 in the MEAC to tie for the championship after winning the title outright in both 2009 and 2008. Pough’s team also earned its third straight berth to the FCS playoffs and finished the 2010 campaign ranked high in all of the HBCU polls and Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) rankings. In 2009, SC State was named National Black Champion by the Sheridan Broadcasting Network, the 100 Percent Wrong Club of Atlanta, the Washington (DC) Pigskin Club and the Box-to-Row /BASN. In addition, the Bulldogs finished number seven in all three major FCS polls – The Sports Network, the FCS Coaches Poll and Any Given Saturday.

Elevated to assistant head coach in 2007, Blanchard coaches the Bulldog defensive line, an assignment he has held for the last ten seasons. He served as recruiting coordinator under Coach Buddy Pough for seven seasons (2002-08) and was offensive line coach under retired Bulldog head coach Willie Jeffries. Blanchard joined the SC State staff as a full-time coach in 1995, following one year as a student assistant. He has continued to build upon the team’s history of success in developing outstanding defensive linemen. During his tenure, he has aided in the development of some of the best linemen to ever wear the Garnet & Blue, among them former National Football League offensive linemen Lewis Kelly, Raleigh Roundtree, Dawani Fladger, tight end Arthur Love who earned a Super Bowl ring with the New England Patriots, as well as defensive lineman Ken Jones, who played in the 2007 Arena Bowl Championship with the Columbus Destroyers.

Ferguson (defensive assistant). In 2002, Blanchard made the switch from offensive line coach to defensive line. Since that time, he has helped Coach Pough win or share four MEAC titles. In addition, he has gone on to develop some of the best defensive lines in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, producing at least one All-MEAC defensive lineman in each of the last seven seasons. A few years ago, it was Jason Ayers and Patrick Washington. Before that, it was Cedric Lloyd and Keyon Brooks. Eric Turner was a first-team selection four seasons ago and in 2005, it was Travis Kinloch earning his second All-MEAC nod under Blanchard’s tutelage. However, the best example of Blanchard’s leadership came in former Bulldog nose tackle Marcus Darby, who came to SCSU with no prep experience, but earned All-MEAC honors in the 2004 season. A standout offensive lineman for the Bulldogs from 1990-94, Blanchard earned All-MEAC honors as a center in 1992 and 1993. He also anchored the SCSU offensive line that propelled the Bulldogs to the 1993 Heritage Bowl against Southern. Blanchard earned a Bachelor of Science from South Carolina State in 1994.

One of the greatest defensive players in the history of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, Harry Carson led South Carolina State to back-to-back conference championships. A First Team All-America selection in 1975, Carson set school and conference records with 17 sacks and 112 tackles. He anchored the 1975 team that recorded six shutouts and set an NCAA record for fewest points (29) allowed in a 10-game season. A two-time all-conference choice, Carson became the first player in MEAC history to win back-to-back Defensive Player of the Year honors, 1974 and 1975. Carson was named to the Sheridan Broadcasting Network 100-year Black College All-American Team and the Division II Team of the Century. He is enshrined in six Halls of Fame-SC State, Division II, SC State Athletic, College Football, MEAC and Pro Football. He played 13 years with the New York Giants and was all-pro 10 times. After his playing days he became a board member of the New York State Special Olympics and the New York State United Way.

Shell, a Whitmire, South Carolina native, was a standout defensive back at South Carolina State College (now University) during his collegiate career from 1970-73. As a senior, he was the dominant player at the position in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, earning All-MEAC honors. He was also named to the Associated Press and Pittsburgh Courier All-America teams. At the conclusion of his college career, Shell signed as a free agent with the Pittsburgh Steelers (1974) of the National Football League. During an illustrious career with the Steelers, which spanned 11 seasons, he started every year, earned All-Pro five times and helped Pittsburgh to four Super Bowl Championships. He was selected to the Steelers’ All-Time Team and the NFL Silver Anniversary Super Bowl Team. He played in more than 200 games as a Steeler and made 51 interceptions - making him the only strong safety in NFL history to record 50 or more interceptions. He has also been voted to the NCAA Division II Team of the Quarter Century and the Sheridan Broadcasting Network (SBN) Black College 100-Year Anniversary squad. Shell was inducted to the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame at South Bend, Indiana in 1998.

OLIVER.C.DAWSON STADIUM aBout oliVer C. daWSon Oliver Cromwell Dawson had a long and unparalleled career as a coach, athletic director, professor and administrator at South Carolina State College (now South Carolina State University) during a forty-one year tenure (1935-76) at the institution. Dawson, affectionately called "the Man for all Seasons," coached five major sports at South Carolina State, beginning in 1935 until he retired in 1976. The Thomaston, Georgia native, who grew a up in Cleveland, Ohio, served as head football coach from 1940 to 1950, and also coached basketball, tennis, track and field, and golf. He won championships in each of the sports except track and field. Dawson attended John Carroll University in Cleveland (1930-34), before earning his bachelor’s at South Carolina State in 1936. He received his master’s from New York University in 1947 and did further study at Denver University and West Virginia University.

oliver C. dawson During his head football coaching tenure, which was interrupted by World War II (1943-45), Dawson compiled only a modest record of 30-29-7, however, his teams finished in the upper division of the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SIAC) every year except one, and the

worksheet included an undefeated 7-0-1 regular season mark in 1947 when the Bulldogs played for the mythical Black College National Championship in Washington, DC against Shaw University. Prior to becoming head coach at SCSU, he served five seasons as backfield coach. He discovered and coached the great Marion Motley, who was an outstanding fullback for the Bulldogs before transferring to Nevada and going on to greatness with the original Cleveland Browns in the National Football League. Motley is one of three former Bulldogs currently enshrined in the NFL Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. David "Deacon" Jones, an outstanding defensive lineman at South Carolina State in the 50s, who went on to stardom with the Los Angeles Rams, and Harry Carson, a Bulldog All-American in the mid-70s who had an illustrious career with the New York Giants, are also in the prestigious Hall. Carson was inducted last season (2006).

uniVerSity miSSion South Carolina State uniVerSity, a senior comprehensive teaching institution, is committed to providing affordable and accessible quality undergraduate and graduate degree programs. This public university, with a student population between 4,000 and 5,000, is located in Orangeburg, an area that has a traditional rural, agricultural economy which has expanded to include a business and industrial focus that is national and international in scope. South Carolina State University’s 1890 land grant legacy of service to the citizenry of the state is ensured through its collaborative efforts with local, rural, and statewide businesses, public education, colleges and industry. This symbiotic relationship provides a catalyst that spurs a reciprocal economic and social growth for the University, state, nation and the international community at large. South Carolina State uniVerSity, through instruction, research and service activities, prepares highly skilled, competent, economically and socially aware graduates to meet life’s challenges and demands that enable them to work and live productively in a dynamic, global society. Since 1896, South Carolina State uniVerSity has maintained a legacy of excellence in education. The University has been home to generations of scholars and leaders in business, military service, government, athletics, education, medicine, science, engineering technology and more. THE MISSION OF SC STATE UNIVERSITY A BRIEF HISTORY OF SOUTH CAROLINA STATE UNIVERSITY Founded in 1896 as the state’s sole public college for black youth, South Carolina State uniVerSity has played a key role in the education of African-Americans in the state and nation. As a land-grant institution, it struggled to provide agricultural and mechanical training to generations of black youngsters. Through its extension program, it sent farm and home demonstration agents into rural counties to provide knowledge and information to impoverished black farm families. The University has educated scores of teachers for the public schools. It provided education in sciences, literature, and history. The support of the Rosenwald Fund and the General Education Board helped the institution survive the Depression. After World War II, the state legislature created a graduate program and a law school at South Carolina State uniVerSity to prevent black students from enrolling in the University of South Carolina’s graduate and legal education programs. The legislature also dramatically increased funding at the college in an effort to make “separate but equal” a reality in higher education in South Carolina. During the 1950s and 1960s hundreds of STATE students participated in local civil rights demonstrations and were arrested. In 1968 three young men were slain and 27 wounded on the campus by state highway patrolmen in the Orangeburg Massacre. Since 1966, STATE has been open to non-African American students and faculty, but it has largely retained its mission and character as an historically black institution. In 1971, the agricultural program was terminated and the college farm was transformed into a community recreation center, consisting of a golf course and soccer, softball and baseball fields. Today there are nearly 5000 students majoring in a wide range of programs that include agribusiness, accounting, art, English, and drama as well as fashion merchandising, physics, psychology, and political science.
