Pair of Reunions Scheduled for 2010 Football SeasonFebruary 22, 2010
By CSU Sports Information
CHARLESTON, S.C. – Charleston Southern will recognize a couple of notable teams during the 2010 football season with reunions in their honor. The Bucs will honor the 25th anniversary of the school’s first club football team as part of the homecoming festivities on October 23, 2010. Additionally, the school will reunite the 2005 team as the Buccaneers take on Presbyterian College on November 13, 2010, for the fifth anniversary of their Big South Championship.
CSU, then Baptist College, made the decision to start a football program in 1985, playing at the club level for six years before moving to Division III in 1991. Two members of the club team, Steve Blanchard and Greg McKenzie, have been inducted into the CSU Hall of Fame.
In 2005, CSU broke through and won its first Big South Championship, doing so in dramatic fashion over Coastal Carolina. A touchdown at the end of regulation sent the game into overtime, and the Bucs stopped CCU in the second overtime period to clinch the victory, honoring fallen teammate Eddie Gadson in the process.
Members of the two teams can get additional information about the reunion by contacting Cathryn Broderhausen (843-863-7523), visiting our CSU Facebook page (www.facebook.com/csusports), or by filling out the CSU Alumni Registration form on www.CSUsports.com.
