Twenty seasons of Southern football have passed since former head coach and Louisiana Sports Hall of Famer Pete Richardson led his first team out of the tunnel of the Louisiana Superdome in 1993.
An emphatic 30-13 win over Northwestern State served as the start of a memorable 11-win season - the first double-digit win season since A.W. Mumford's 1954 team won ten games-producing the programs first outright SWAC championship since 1959.
Southern University athletics will commemorate the achievements of the 1993 Black College and SWAC champions during pregame of the Sept. 14 home opener against Prairie View A&M in A.W. Mumford Stadium.
The 1993 team produced four All-SWAC first team selections including Sean Wallace, the SWAC's Defensive Player of the Year. Pete Richardson was also named the conference's coach of the year in 1993, the first of five awards the former coach received during his 17-year career at Southern.
