letter from the commissioner

THE SOUTHWESTERN ATHLETIC CONFERENCE looks back at the 2013-14 academic year as one of the most historical seasons in our league’s history spotlighted by achievements on and off the field. Our amazing year was jump started by the league’s presence returning to the city in which it was established. In May 29, 2013, the Council of Presidents and Chancellors voted unanimously to relocate the Toyota SWAC Football Championship and Basketball Tournament to Houston, Texas. There was a significant increase in the attendance of our football championship and basketball tournaments. Southern and Jackson State, two programs that played in the first ever SWAC Championship game in 1999, sparked our move to Houston. The game’s attendance ranked third all time at 38,985. In addition, the championship experienced its first double overtime. The basketball tournament capped the winter sports with numbers increasing 23 percent from the previous year - reaching 45,390 for the total SWAC experience. The attendance from the tournament games totaled 33,836, receiving an increase of more than 12,000 from last year. As we moved our football championship to Reliant Stadium (NRG Stadium) and the basketball tournament to the Toyota Center, we can also applaud the venues for our conference championships as they were great hosts in providing a state-of-the-art and memorable experience for our student athletes. The soccer championship was played at Houston Amateur Sports Park, the training facility for the MLS Houston Dynamo. Bowling was held at the Bowling International Training and Research Center (Arlington, Texas), which is home of the USBC and the sport’s history. To end the conference championships, the baseball tournament was held inside New Orleans MLB Urban Youth Academy at Wesley Barrow Stadium. The conference has always been linked in with MLB’s UYA and Urban Invitational. It was great to extend our relationship with MLB as host to our baseball finale. In September, on behalf of the Council of Presidents and Chancellors, and with their approval, we introduced Howard University as a member of the SWAC for the sport of women’s soccer. We are pleased to welcome Howard and its women’s soccer team to the Southwestern Athletic Conference. They are an amazing university with a strong academic and athletic history. Our league continues to stay competitive as nine of our ten member institutions captured conference titles. In men’s cross country, Mississippi Valley State and Alabama State made it three in a row winning the women’s title again. For women’s volleyball, Alabama State won its first ever volleyball tournament, Jackson State took home soccer, and Southern tacked on its third championship game title in football. As we look at indoor and outdoor track and field, Grambling State captured both men titles and Alabama State repeated in both segments as well. GSU won its third indoor title in four years and fifth straight for the outdoor season. ASU recorded its sixth consecutive indoor championship and moved to five back-to-back crowns in outdoor competition. Our bowling title was reclaimed by Alabama A&M before Alabama State, once again, winning both men and women’s golf championships. Southern captured an unprecedented five consecutive championships in women’s tennis, along with Alcorn State winning its fourth men’s tennis championship in a six-year span. Our basketball tournament final was highlighted with the first ever men and women teams from the same schools - rivals, Texas Southern and Prairie View A&M, playing for it all. On the women’s side, PVAMU made it four in a row and Texas Southern won its first men’s basketball title since 2003. TSU came out on top in softball lifting the tournament trophy for the first time ever and Jackson State went against all odds to repeat as baseball champions for its 16th overall. When we speak of the league’s national exposure, we have to credit several television networks, SWAC Digital Network, and swac.org for bringing the competition to the homes of our loyal fans. For the year, 22 football games were televised during the regular season with 12 airing on the ESPN networks. In addition CSS, Comcast SportsNet, Fox SportsSouth, CSN Houston, and NBC carried at least one of the remaining games. In addition, eight regular season basketball games were covered by a television network including: CSS, Fox Sports and six games on ESPNU. ESPN continued to partner with the conference airing the championships for volleyball, football, bowling, softball, men and women’s basketball and baseball. Also, during the regular season, ESPNU was able to highlight one of our famed rivalries in softball - Jackson State vs. Mississippi Valley State. The growth of the SWAC Digital Network continues to enhance the brand with more than 33,000 viewers watching a SWAC game on their mobile devices, laptop or desktop computer. Within that number, 63 percent were new visitors to SDN. The addition of SDN helped lift the number of views to our primary resource swac.org. Our home website had more than one million views resulting in an increase of nearly 250,000 people who logged on to our primary resource. As our legacy continues to loom over the nation, more than several SWAC legends were, or to be, inducted into a nationally recognized hall of fame. The NFL announced Michael Strahan (Texas Southern) and Aeneas Williams (Southern) as members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of the 2014. They will join 13 other league legends to be enshrined in Canton, Ohio. Five football standouts were also inducted into the Black College Football Hall of Fame with the list including Strahan, Robert Brazile (Jackson State), John Stallworth (Alabama A&M), Willie Totten (Mississippi Valley State) and Marino Casem (Alcorn State - Alabama State - Southern). In the realm of baseball, Ralph Garr (Grambling State) was enshrined into the National College Baseball Hall of Fame and famed football player, Jimme Giles (Alcorn State), was inducted into Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame. We salute all or legends as they continue to honor the heritage of the Southwestern Athletic Conference. As the SWAC continues to grow, we have to thank our football championship and basketball tournament title sponsor, Toyota, for its commitment to our student-athletes and fans. We would also like to salute - Russell, Nike, Coca-Cola, AARP, and The Home Depot for their support and partnership. Last, we would like to thank our fans, student-athletes, their parents, and our member institutions for a remarkable 2013-14 season. Sincerely Duer Sharp   Southwestern Athletic Conference Commissioner 2013-14 southwestern athletic conference - 4
