Bowie State picked to win it all

Posted by: Editor-Bonitta Best on Wednesday, July 18, 2018 at 12:00:00 am

The return of quarterback Amir Hall was enough to convince CIAA coaches that Bowie State is the team to beat this season. The Bulldogs were picked to win it all.

There’s not enough space to highlight all of Hall’s accolades, so don’t miss the opportunity to see him in action if he comes to your town. Let’s face it: he’s going to carry the CIAA this season.

Virginia State, which went undefeated during the regular season, is second. The Trojans biggest loss is running back Trenton Cannon, who is now a New York Jet.

St. Augustine’s and Shaw were picked No. 3 and No. 4, respectively in the Southern Division behind Fayetteville State and Winston-Salem State. The Falcons were one game away from winning the division.

In the no surprise category, Livingstone and Lincoln (Pa. ) are bringing up the rear in each division. Shaw place two on the preseason defensive first team: linebacker Devon Hunt and defensive back Jaleel Scroggins.

The CIAA Media Day is July 19, 9 a.m., in Roanoke, Virginia.
