President Congratulates Football Team on Winning Season

President Tony Atwater sent a congratulatory note to the campus community about NSU Spartan Football team as it prepares to take on the Morgan State Bears.

As the Norfolk State University Spartan Football team prepares to face the Morgan State Bears tomorrow in Baltimore, I want to thank and congratulate Head Coach Pete Adrian, his coaching staff and the football team for an outstanding season.

Our mighty Spartans are nationally ranked for the second time this season. Tomorrow we are playing for the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) football championship. A win will give us an automatic slot in the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs.

No matter what tomorrow’s outcome, Spartans everywhere are proud of our accomplishments and the hard work, determination and grit displayed by our team.

I invite all to make the trip to Baltimore to witness this historic game. I thank each and every Spartan for the support you have shown throughout this season.

Go Spartans! Behold the Green and Gold!®
