  • BLACK COLLEGES/ your opinion

    Aside from Satch & Bob Hayes, who is the greatest Track & Field, male athlete from a traditionally black college? Consider entire career.

    How about Edwin Moses (Morehouse)?

      The opposite question of this might be: Who was the worse track athlete at Bob Jones University?

        Any top list would have to include Alice Coachman (TUSK), Edwin Moses (MOREH) Lee Calhoun (UNCC), Ralph Boston,Willie Davenport (SOUTH),Edith McGuire (TSU), Wyomia Tyus, Vince Matthews, Steve Riddick (NORF),Reynaud Robinson (FAM), Rod Milburn (SOUTH), and Willye White (TSU). We also produced Josh Culbreath, George Rhoden,and the great Morgan State runners of 1948-55.

          Do not know absolutely for sure on all those you named Bijan, but I do know that Vince Matthews went to Johnson C. Smith.

          How about all those Tennessee State gals ?

            Doesn't anyone read the question? It asked about MALE athletes. No Tigerbelles need apply.

                  1. Moses *
                  2. Hayes

                  * If indeed Morehouse is a "traditionally black college"... hopefully we have now grown up and are moving further and further away from these distinctions.

                    If it isn't, someone ought to let them know.

                      The HBCU is an association of almost 100 "historically black colleges and universities." Morehouse may be the most prestigious academic institution of all of them.

                        Hey, I'm delighted to hear that. I just like to think that we can start to get to the point where these types of distinctions are ancient history, not just history.

                          Remember STEVE HJ went to DOOK not exactly hotbed of black history in 1955 !

                              Third should be Lee Calhoun or Ralph Boston (with Davenport not far behind). Don't forget the Morgan State Penn Relays & Olympic stars though. Some were Jamaican.
