Savannah State’s John Wilson invited to minicamp by Seattle Seahawks

By Dennis Knight
Posted May 27, 2020 at 9:05 PM

John Wilson has been beating the odds his whole life. The Savannah State defensive back walked on with the Tiger program coming out of New Manchester High in Douglasville and earned a 3.4 GPA as a freshman to become eligible and receive his scholarship.

Wilson has been a starter at cornerback ever since, except for 2017 when he missed the season after tearing his ACL in a spring practice.

He said he became a student of the game during his season on the sidelines — learning the X’s and O’s that helped him develop into a defensive star the last two years.

Now Wilson is ready to take on his next challenge after earning an invitation as an undrafted free agent to attend a minicamp with the Seattle Seahawks.

“I had hopes of getting picked in the last couple rounds (of the NFL draft), but that didn’t go too well,” Wilson said in a phone interview Wednesday, May 27. “So I was working with my agent to try to set something up and we got a call from the Seahawks Saturday.

“This means a lot to me. It gives me a chance to go out and represent myself after everything I’ve been through. I’ve been an underdog my whole life, so my mindset is that I have nothing to lose. I’ve been doing this a long time, and I’m going to go all out.”

Wilson said he was initially crushed by the knee injury that caused him to miss the 2017 season, but he made the best of his situation.

“I matured a lot during that time,” Wilson said. “It was depressing, but I opened my mind up and learned everything I could about the game — from different defenses to personnel. I learned to break down an opponent’s film and form a game plan.

“It was hard to see your friends playing when you’re on the sideline, but I kind of became a grad assistant coach and that kept me level-headed.”

Football runs in the family for Wilson. His father, John Wilson, was a star running back for an Americus High squad that lost in GHSA Class 4A title game to Washington County 22-21 in his senior season of 1996. He went on to play for Tulane as a running back, receiver and defensive back and was a member of the Green Wave squad that beat Brigham Young in the 1998 Liberty Bowl.

As a junior, the younger Wilson led SSU defensive backs with 39 tackles and had a pair of interceptions. Last fall, he had 35 tackles, four pass break-ups and a fumble recovery as he earned All-SIAC second-team honors at cornerback.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pounder described his style of play as being aggressive, while trying to be a technician when covering receivers. He was also a standout in track and field, baseball and even played soccer at New Manchester, and he brings that versatile athleticism in his approach to the game.

Wilson, who earned his degree in homeland security, said SSU coach Shawn Quinn has been a big influence on and off the field. Quinn led the Tigers to a 7-3 record in his first season as head coach last year as SSU had its first winning campaign since 1998.

“When coach Quinn came on, we had a lot of problems with the program, but he came up with the motto ‘Find a Way’ and we’ve been doing that ever since,” Wilson said. “He changed the culture of our team.”

Quinn said Wilson is the kind of player coaches love to work with.

“John is a great guy. He’s not only a talented player, but he’s a hard-working leader,” Quinn said. “He has that energy and bounce about him. He’s the kind of player who ends up cramping up at the end of practices because he’s just working his butt off.

“I’m a big disciple of Pete Carroll — I like the discipline his teams show and they are always competitive. We run a similar defensive system to what Seattle uses. I think John has everything that Seattle is looking for. He’s a talented corner who can lock down receivers, but he also loves to tackle and blitz.”

University of Akron eliminating 3 sports, making additional athletic cuts

By George M. Thomas
Beacon Journal
Posted at 11:15 AM Updated at 8:36 PM

The University of Akron followed through on its plan to begin trimming 23% of its athletics budget on Thursday by eliminating the men’s golf and cross country and women’s tennis programs.

Director of Athletics Larry Williams said on a news conference call he was not ready to be more specific on the other cuts, but that the football team “will need to bear some of the burden.”

“The overall arching goal is to make sure that whatever we do, we try to protect the opportunities that are available in college athletics,” Williams said.

The cuts are expected to total $4.4 million. The university is in the process of cutting $65 million from its $325 million budget by early June through a massive reorganization of academics.

The shuttering of the three programs doesn’t represent the full scope of those $4.4 million in cuts.

Williams said they were the first leg of a four-pronged effort that will also include reductions in scholarships, salaries, operational expenses and staffing.

He said cost of attendance — the amount of money provided to student-athletes above tuition, room and board and books — will also be reviewed.

Things could look a lot different for UA football players in particular as hotel stays the night before a home game could be a thing of the past, Williams said. Additionally, the team will be more minimalist when it comes to uniforms.

Benedictine’s Trent Broadnax commits to play football at Duke

By Dennis Knight
Posted Apr 17, 2020 at 3:50 PM

Trent Broadnax came to Benedictine focusing on basketball and baseball, but when the football coaching staff saw his athleticism, they convinced him to put on the pads and give it a go.

Broadnax came out his sophomore year — playing for the first time since the seventh grade — and it didn’t take long to see he had a special talent. He earned All-Greater Savannah first-team honors as a wide receiver in his sophomore and junior seasons, and Friday, April 17, he made a decision about his future as the junior committed to play at Duke.

“Duke was a great fit for me academically and athletically,” Broadnax said in a phone interview shortly after announcing his commitment on Twitter. “I’ll be able to combine sports and academics at a Power 5 school. I have a great relationship with the coaching staff at Duke. They stayed in contact with me the whole time, and that was a big factor in my decision.”

Sports run in the Broadnax family. His father, Horace Broadnax, who played on Georgetown’s 1984 national championship basketball team, has coached the men’s basketball team at Savannah State since 2005. Trent’s older brother, Trae, plays basketball at the U.S. Naval Academy.

As a sophomore, Trent Broadnax had 40 catches for 663 yards and seven scores. He had 44 receptions for 558 yards and four touchdowns as a junior and was also a key player as defensive back and return man.

He has continued to excel on the basketball court as the Cadets’ best player — earning All-Greater Savannah first-team honors the last two seasons. Broadnax switched up from baseball to track and field this year and was set to run the 100 and 200 meters and the 4x100 relay for the Cadets before the coronavirus pandemic ended the school year and spring sports. As a sophomore, Broadnax was named the Savannah Morning News Most Versatile Male Athlete of the Year.

Broadnax had 21 offers on the table, according to 247Sports, including Virginia, Colorado, Wake Forest and Illinois. And more were sure to come, but he was ready to make his choice.

“I committed early because Duke was where I wanted to be. There was no point in waiting,” Broadnax said. “I think BC has prepared me well for college. Coach (Danny) Britt runs our practices like a college program, and the school has made me disciplined in everything I do. That’s going to help me in the future.”

Britt said he had heard what a great player Broadnax was from his youth days playing for the Savannah Dawgs, and he lived up to the hype.

“He hadn’t played in a couple years and then he came out — and we were very glad he did,” Britt said with a laugh. “He’s extremely versatile and could play as an inside or outside receiver in college, or as a safety or returning kicks. He jokes with us to put him in at quarterback, and I think he would do well if we put him in there.

“Getting into Duke shows how smart he is, and he’s also got that athletic intelligence as the son of a coach. For Trent to play at Duke and get that free education, it’s pretty unbelievable and we’re excited for him.”


Savannah State football is no stranger to finding a way.

The team found a way to win going undefeated in conference play last season. Now the Tigers are finding a way to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.

"It's been a theme for our football team since we got here in 2019, to find a way,” Savannah State head football coach Shawn Quinn said. “Obviously, we all have to find a way during this time."

The Tigers found a way to stay fit at home by posting and sending creative workouts via social media. Savannah State head strength & conditioning coach Justin VanDusen showcased no excuses by filming workouts using furniture. VanDusen even used his pet dog to help him get a good workout.

"We talk about being physically and mentally tough,” Quinn explained. “This is a challenge for all of our players. This is the prime of their lives. They're doing what they need to do in quarantine every day to get back to this game real quick."

Until the Tigers can return to The Marsh, the team plans to continue finding a way to work hard and inspire each other from home.

Sports Forum / George Lynch out at Clark Atlanta
« on: April 19, 2020, 09:30:56 PM »

George Lynch’s contract was not renewed at D2 Clark Atlanta University. He has been the head coach there for the past two seasons, and compiled a 28-28 record (22-14 SIAC).

Lynch, a former standout at North Carolina, was the 12th pick in the 1993 NBA draft by the Los Angeles Lakers. He spent 12 seasons in the league with five different teams. Following his playing career, he had stints as an assistant at SMU, and with the G-League’s Grand Rapids Drive.

Assistant coach Bo Bivens has been tabbed as the interim head coach. No word on if or when a search will take place.

Brian Burg Named Georgia Southern Men's Basketball Coach

Burg helped lead Texas Tech to the 2019 NCAA Tournament championship game.

STATESBORO –  Incoming Georgia Southern Director of Athletics Jared Benko has named Brian Burg, who helped lead Texas Tech to the 2019 NCAA National Championship game and the Big 12 Conference regular-season championship, the head coach of the Georgia Southern men's basketball program.

Burg comes to Statesboro after four successful seasons on Chris Beard's staff at Texas Tech, and he is the first hire for Benko, who was named Georgia Southern Director of Athletics in March.

In Burg's four seasons with the Texas Tech program, the Red Raiders went 94-44 with two deep runs in the NCAA Tournament, including an appearance in the 2019 national title game. Burg served as an assistant coach the past two seasons after serving as the program's Chief of Staff in 2016-17 and 2017-18, where he was involved in all facets of the program.

"We are thrilled to announce Brian Burg as our next head men's basketball coach," said Benko. "Brian's commitment to the comprehensive development of our student-athletes on-and-off the court resonated with the search committee.  As we spoke to some of the best and brightest college basketball minds in the country, his name continued to come up time and again.  Brian has mentored under some of the top coaches in the country, and we know this experience will benefit our program tremendously.  Coach Burg will hit the ground running this week, and we look forward to him having a long and successful career with Georgia Southern University."

Burg, who is described as one of the nation's top recruiters by his peers, brings nearly a decade of experience as an assistant coach at the Division I level with stops at Campbell, North Carolina Central and at fellow Sun Belt school Little Rock under Beard in 2015-16.

Over the past seven seasons, Burg has worked for programs that have compiled a 176-60 record, highlighted by four NCAA Tournament trips and an NIT appearance. The teams also have posted an 88-36 conference mark, including Texas Tech's first Big 12 regular-season title as well as two MEAC and one Sun Belt regular-season championship.

"This is a dream come true! A year ago, this weekend, we were playing Gonzaga for a spot in the Final Four, and today I am named head basketball coach at Georgia Southern University," said Burg. "I couldn't be more excited. What a year it's been! I want to thank President Marrero, Director of Athletics Jared Benko, Senior Associate Athletics Director Reggie Simpkins and Faculty Athletics Representative Dr. Chris Geyerman for the confidence they've shown in me and the trust they've placed upon me. I also want to thank Chris Beard, LeVelle Moton, Robbie Laing, Kermit Davis and every coach that I have coached under and played for during my career. These men have left an indelible mark on the way that I approach the game each and every day. I'm proud to use the term 'blue collar' as it's the perfect description of the culture that we've worked so hard to instill here in Lubbock, and I can't wait to bring that same work ethic to Statesboro. I'm excited to share my vision and work relentlessly to build a similar culture at Georgia Southern.  Dr. Marrero and Jared have spoken very highly of the young men in our program and assured me that they, too, are ready to go to work in pursuit of a Sun Belt championship."

In his first year as an on-court assistant coach for Texas Tech, the Red Raiders recorded the program's winningest season in school history by going 31-7 in 2018-19. Tech advanced to the program's first Final Four after earning wins over Northern Kentucky, Buffalo, Michigan and Gonzaga before advancing to the national championship game with a 61-51 win over Michigan State in the semifinal in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Before the tournament run, the Red Raiders won the program's first regular-season Big 12 title by going 14-4 in conference play.
No stranger to the Sun Belt Conference, Burg served as an assistant coach on Beard's Little Rock staff in 2015-16. The Trojans began their Sun Belt championship season with a program-best 10-0 record, completed a 30-5 campaign, and overcame a 14-point deficit in the final five minutes during its NCAA Tournament First Round contest en route to an 85-83 double-overtime victory against No. 12-ranked and fifth-seeded Purdue.

The Trojans' 15-game improvement in the win column tied for the NCAA's top spot and Little Rock had three players pick up All-Sun Belt honors during the same season for the first time in program history, led by Josh Hagins on the All-Sun Belt First Team and the NABC's All-District 24 First Team. Roger Woods collected All-Sun Belt Third-Team honors and the 2016 Sun Belt Tournament Most Valuable Player award. Burg was named one of the nation's Top 5 Mid-Major Recruiters by

Before Little Rock, Burg spent two seasons at North Carolina Central as an assistant coach. The Eagles turned in an impressive 53-14 record, won 31 of their 32 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) games and secured berths to the 2014 NCAA Tournament and 2015 NIT.

Burg's first opportunity as an assistant coach at the Division I level came at Campbell, where he organized the program's recruiting efforts and assisted in all phases of the program. The Camels won the 2010 Atlantic Sun Conference regular-season title and set program records for regular season (19) and conference (14) wins.
Burg joined the Campbell program after two seasons as the Director of Basketball Operations under Kermit Davis at Middle Tennessee State. He began his coaching career at Lake Erie College as a graduate assistant from 2003-05, followed by one-year assistant coaching stops at Garden City Community College (2005-06) and Western Texas College (2006-07).

A native of Houston, Texas, Burg earned his bachelor's degree from Mount Mercy in 2003 and a master's degree from Lake Erie in 2005.

Georgia Southern tied for fourth in the Sun Belt standings last season and has finished in the top-5 in each of its six seasons in the league. GS tallied 20-plus wins for the third straight season, a feat not accomplished since 1986-89, and the Eagles advanced to their conference tournament semifinal round for the third consecutive season, the first time that has happened in program history.

 Petition to change Albany State football homecoming has more than 1,000 signatures

    By Joe Whitfield Mar 7, 2020 Updated Mar 7, 2020

More than 1,000 Albany State football fans, alumni and supporters have signed an online petition asking that the date of the football team’s homecoming game be changed to an October date, instead of the September date where it is presently scheduled.

“There are several reasons why we want this change, but one of the most important reasons is financial,” said Monica Franklin-Redden who started the online petition. “There are many families and supporters who cannot financially afford to go to Miami for the Orange Blossom Classic and then turn around and come down for homecoming in the same month,” she said. “We have many supporters such as educators who get paid only once a month and two trips like that would really affect finances of many households.”

Under the schedule released by the university last week, homecoming is scheduled September 26th with a game against Clark Atlanta University, three weeks after the Orange Blossom Classic in Miami. The petition is asking that to be changed to the Savannah State game which is scheduled for the final home game of the year on October 24th.

“Homecoming is traditionally in October,” Franklin-Redden said. “The answer I get from the university is that it is about revenue, but that just doesn’t make sense.”

She said a university vice president told her because Savannah State was a big rival more fans would come to the game anyway and by putting the Clark Atlanta game as homecoming, that would be a big draw as well.

Franklin-Redden said she understood that idea, but the financial burdens would be too much and it will affect homecoming. She believes the city itself would be affected because homecoming is such a profitable weekend for Albany businesses.

“Albany State has a large financial impact on Albany businesses, especially during homecoming weekend,” she said. “It’s not just about the university, the entire city gets involved, so these decisions will impact more than just those at the university.”

The petition also points out that the October homecoming date is a part of the ASU tradition and not keeping that tradition alive would be damaging to the culture of the university.

The closing paragraph of the petition reads:

“Traditions and heritage are the backbone of our esteemed university’s culture. While this may be viewed as a logistics issue by some, to others it is taken as an attack on our unsinkable culture. Please recognize and honor the value of this culture and restore Homecoming to its rightful place in October.”

“It has been more than 10 years since we have had homecoming in September and there is a reason for that,” she said. “Many of our supporters are older and the first responders just couldn’t keep up with the people when it was still so hot in September. In October the games will be at least 10 degrees cooler.”

Albany State football coach Gabe Giardina said he was familiar with the petition, but has no input in decision-making when it comes to deciding which game will be set as homecoming.

“I know our administration and the alumni association work tirelessly to make sure these kinds of decisions are made to benefit the most people,” said Giardina, “But I don’t know why one game was selected over the other for homecoming. I think with homecoming it will be a big deal no matter when it is.”

Frankin-Redden doesn’t disagree with that notion, but thinks holding homecoming later would be more beneficial for more people.

A group of Edward Waters College football players turned to the I-TEAM after receiving eviction notices at their off-campus apartment complex. Three EWC athletes told us that during the recruiting process, a member of the coaching staff promised them off-campus housing at a discounted rate, but the landlords said that agreement never existed.

The I-TEAM knows of at least seven EWC football players currently being threatened with eviction by The District on Kernan, an apartment complex on Kernan Boulevard that bills itself as “student friendly.”

Three of them and a football assistant allege that associate head coach Antoine Manning promised players off-campus housing with more than 50-percent off the monthly rent. The apartment complex however tells us, a discounted housing agreement with football players was never made. Now the players want the coach held responsible.
