#FFFMediaDays SWAC 2014

Here at #FansFavoriteFAN we will bring you coverage that you may not see on Espn.com or BleacherReport.com. We love college sports and we think it is very important to shed light on the Historically Black Colleges & Universities along with Division II & III sports teams as well. So we want to introduce the SWAC Conference to many of you visiting our website today!

ABOUT THE SWAC

In 1920, eight men representing six colleges from the state of Texas met to discuss collegiate athletics and the many challenges that face their respective institutions.  By the time the session in Houston had concluded, they had founded an athletic league that has slowly became one of the leading sports associations in the world of collegiate athletics, the Southwestern Athletic Conference
The founding fathers of the original “Super Six” were C.H. Fuller of Bishop College, Red Randolph and C.H. Patterson of Paul Quinn, E.G. Evans, H.J. Evans and H.J. Starns of Prairie View A&M, D.C. Fuller of Texas College and G. Whitte Jordan of Wiley College.

 

The #SWACMediaDay was held on July 18th at the Marriott in Birmingham, Alabama. Thanks to @DuaneRankin we have great images from that day.
