Central State is heading west to play in the San Diego Football Classic next month, and it can probably thank the famous athletics director for the trip.
NFL Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow, Central State’s athletics director, was back in San Diego Monday to help announce the Sept. 19 contest between Central State and Stillman College. Winslow played nine seasons with the Chargers and was more than happy to have his program participate in the event featuring two historically-black institutions.
“It just happened to be in San Diego, and of course the rest came with the fact that, oh, I used to play in San Diego,” Winslow told the Associated Press.
Added event promoter Dwayne McAfee, “Having a Hall of Fame, marquee name such as Kellen here brings credibility.”

LIVELY DEBATE CONTINUES
Several readers have responded to the previous blog asking “Who will be the top Black College team in 2009?”
SWAC fans have chimed to nominate Grambling and Jackson State while the MEAC has jumped in with FAMU and South Carolina State. The Big Blue of Tennessee State always seems to be around while the SIAC has thrown three teams – Albany State, Morehouse and Tuskegee – into the mix.
So, you can join the previous discussion or just respond here and state your case why your favorite team will rise to the top this season.
