Southern recognizing '93 SWAC Champions at home opener | Events
Southern University athletics will commemorate 20th anniversary of the 1993 Black College and SWAC champions during pregame of the Sept. 14 home opener against Prairie View A&M in A.W. Mumford Stadium.
In conjunction with the game's Alumni Day/Unite in White promotion, Southern is providing two free tickets to each member from the 1993 team and support staff along with a special pregame tailgate hosted by the Southern University Football Alumni Association. For more information about the pre-game festivities, contact SUFAA President Darryl Hurst at Darryl.Hurst@yahoo.com.
Former players, coaches and supports staff including trainers, equipment managers and strength coaches are required to contact Southern Athletics Director Will Broussard at 225-771-5930 or email him at email@example.com for verification purposes and to receive their tickets. Individuals wanting more than the allotted two tickets can purchase additional tickets for $30 in Sections 5W and 6W.
The 1993 team produced four All-SWAC first team selections including Sean Wallace, the SWAC's Defensive Player of the Year. Pete Richardson was also named the conference's coach of the year in 1993, the first of five awards the former coach received during his 17-year career at Southern.
