BCSP Notes
Former All-SIAC quarterback and 1977 Morehouse graduate Jerome Boger was named head referee and will become the second African-American in the history of the Super Bowl to serve as head official. Boger was the highest-graded official by the NFL this season. Boger, also a former SIAC official, worked 11 NFL games during the regular season. His crew averaged 94.1 penalty yards per game, the fourth-fewest of any referee who worked at least 10 games. Boger was a four-year starter at Morehouse and worked high school and recreational league games before moving up to colleges. He spent 11 years as an official in the SIAC and five seasons (1996-2000) in the MEAC. He also officiated in Conference USA, the Arena Football League and NFL Europe. He has been an NFL official since the 2004 season. He started in the league as a line judge and was promoted to referee in 2006 after only two seasons. He became the third African-American referee in the NFL after Johnny Grier and Mike Carey.

KERSHAW IN AT FAYETTEVILLE ST.:

Morehouse alum lead official for Super Bowl XLVII

FAYETTEVILLE, NC – Fayetteville State named Lawrence Kershaw last Tuesday as its 15th head football coach. Kershaw comes to FSU from Florida A&M where he served as offensive coordinator for the past five years. During his time at FAMU, the Rattlers finished as Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference co-champions KERSHAW in 2010 with a 7-1 record. In 2007, Kershaw was the offensive line coach at Hampton University. In 2006, he served as the offensive line coach and coordinator of the strength and conditioning program at Truman State. Kershaw is replacing Kenny Phillips, who set the school record for wins while compiling a 75--63 record and winning three CIAA titles in 13 years leading the Broncos. FSU finished 2-8 in 2012. A 1995 graduate of Virginia State, Kershaw began his coaching career as the offensive line coach for three seasons for the Trojans following the completion of his playing career. Kershaw completed his Masters of Education Degree in 1997 at VSU and returned to his home state of New York in 1998 to volunteer at Fordham University. He returned to his alma-mater in 2000 as the offensive line coach and took over as the offensive coordinator a year later. Kershaw also served as the Assistant Head Coach at Virginia Union University from 2004-05. ATLANTA, GA —Clark Atlanta announced last week the appointment of former Tusculum College Defensive Line Coach Kevin Weston as the new head coach for Panther football. Weston officially joined CAU on Tuesday, Jan. 15. Weston served eight years on the Tusculum coaching staff including last season as defensive line coach. He spent the 2010 and 2011 seasons as the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach. In 2006, he was Tusculum's assistant head coach and strength and conditioning coach. Weston played tight end and guard on the Tusculum squad from WESTON 1999-2002, and graduated in 2002 with the bachelor's degree in physical education. He subsequently completed the master’s degree from Troy University in 2005. He will be replacing Daryl McNeill who was 4-15 in two seasons at CAU including a 2-8 mark in 2012. "We feel confident that he will be a good fit to infuse momentum into our football program, which has lacked stability amidst several coaching changes," said CAU Director of Athletics Dr.. Tamica Smith Jones. "There are clearly challenges that must be addressed, but in doing so, we have the rare opportunity to carve out what can become one of the most focused, unique and forceful squads in this Division and beyond," said Weston. "In Weston," CAU President Carlton E. Brown said, "we have identified an individual who knows the game inside and out, has proven his ability to build and grow successful teams, promote values education and insist upon personal and character development in his players."

Jackson State's Lindsey Hunter named Phoenix Suns interim coach

CLARK ATLANTA TABS WESTON:

PHOENIX (AP) -- The Phoenix Suns have turned to former Jackson State and SWAC star and NBA veteran and champion Lindsey Hunter, as its interim head coach. Hunter, 40, the team's player development director, was named to the post Sunday, two days after the Suns and let go of popular head coach Alvin Gentry. Hunter got the nod over more experienced assistants Elston Turner, Dan Majerle and Igor Kokoskov. "I think the simple answer is that the organization needed a jolt," general manager Lance Blanks told the AP. "We needed something that would shock the system of us, the players, and risk trumps safety in this business. We felt this was the right person to take the risk on." Hunter is expected to hold on to the job for the remaining 41 games of the regular season. His first game is Thursday at Sacramento. Hunter joined the Suns in the scouting department last year and this season took over the team's new player development department. As a guard with five NBA teams, Hunter averaged 8.5 points, 2.7 assists and 1.2 steals in 937 games, 438 as a starter. He won NBA championships with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2002 and the Detroit Pistons in 2004. At Jackson State, Hunter totalled 2,226 points during his three-year career, second on the school's all-time scoring list. He was the 10th overall pick in the first round of the 1993 draft by Detroit. Hunter first attended Alcorn State before transferring to JSU. Hunter retired in 2010 and served in a player development job with Detroit before coming to Phoenix. As a finalist for the Orlando head coaching job last offseason, Hunter mentioned learning from the likes of Larry Brown, Doug Collins and Phil Jackson. "I've always, since high school, considered myself a coach on the floor," Hunter said. "I've always had really tough coaches who demanded that, and I embraced it and I actually enjoyed it." Backup point guard Sebastian Telfair, a big supporter of Gentry, said he wasn't surprised when Hunter got the job. "Lindsey's going to hold everybody accountable," Telfair said. "He was a player. The players respect him, so I'm anxious to see how this goes."

All-star game breakouts

season. Howard linebacker Keith Pough was impressive in workouts during the week. UAPB defensive lineman Terrell Armstead and Alabama State safety Kejuan Riley also played in the game. At the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Carson, Ca., Norfolk State WR Xavier Boyce had three receptions including a 14-yard TD catch in the Nationals 34-0 win over the Americans. Fort Valley State wideout Chris Slaughter had three catches for 35 yards for the Americans. SC State DB Jakar Hamilton had three tackles and Virginia Union defensive end Kentrell Harris had one. Saint Augustine's wideout Tyron Laughinghouse caught a 13yard score for the Stripes team that defeated the Stars 31-3 in the first Raycom College Football All-Star Classic in Montgomery, Ala.
