FAMU Preseason Football Preview Gains Regional Attention
The Tallahassee Democrat today profiled the 2012 Florida A&M University football preseason preview, the brainchild of former VP Eddie Jackson and former sports information director Alvin Hollis.
Throughout the 96-page glossy publication, the effort to go beyond stats and photos is clearly obvious. Bishop A.J. Richardson’s recollection of his years as a drum major with the Marching 100 is especially informative, as is a feature on the price that historically black colleges pay for playing athletics.
It also looks at the future stars on this year’s football team, featuring six of the skilled players. For those who like nostalgia, Hollins writes a lengthy piece on the Rattlers’ 1979 upset victory over Miami.
