Josh Williams, a defensive back from Fayetteville State projected to be selected in the 2022 NFL Draft, told NewsOne in an exclusive interview that he wants to "rewrite what people think about HBCUs and their athletes."
The announcement that Tennessee State will face Notre Dame in football spotlights the ongoing conversation about HBCUs playing “payout games” against Power Five teams in exchange for major money, and a lopsided loss.
Infamous former Baylor University football coach Art Briles quickly resigned as offensive coordinator at Grambling State after intense backlash from the HBCU community. Briles was fired after a wide-ranging sexual assault scandal at Baylor.
Criticism abounded on social media over the choice for Grambling State University to hire Art Briles, the infamous former Baylor University head coach who was fired in 2016 after being linked to sexual assault allegations.
Kevin Coleman Jr. and other top high school football recruits who choose to attend an HBCU need to be given their appropriate recognition for taking a chance on their careers and uplifting these historically Black institutions in the process.
