ESPN’s Herm Edwards will be Keynote Speaker at MEAC/SWAC Challenge Presented by Disney

News-Sports.net (press release) - ESPN NFL and college football analyst and former NFL head coach Herm Edwards will serve as keynote speaker at the sixth annual MEAC/SWAC Challenge Presented by Disney. For the fourth straight year, SportsCenter anchor Jay Harris will emcee the annual MEAC/SWAC Challenge Kickoff Banquet on Friday, Sept. 3, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The banquet spotlights the schools, players and coaches participating in the MEAC/SWAC Challenge. This year’s game will showcase the MEAC’s Delaware State against the SWAC’s Southern University at Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium in Orlando, Fla., on Sunday, Sept. 5, at noon on ESPN/ESPN HD and ESPN3.com.

Edwards, who will be featured in a live chat on ESPN.com at 2 p.m. today to discuss his role in the MEAC/SWAC Challenge festivities, said he thinks the MEAC/SWAC Challenge holds great value for Historically Black College and University schools.

“For them, it’s really a showcase,” he said. “And not just for them personally, but for college football. For these guys to be put on a stage like that and to have ESPN a part of it, this is really good. It makes those young kids growing up who can’t go to Michigan, Ohio State, USC or Alabama say, ‘Guess what? I can go here and get a good education and have an opportunity if I’m good enough to play pro football.’
