The outlook for the 1991
Bronco football season has become
cloudy. The fans expected the team to
have a tough season, but they never
imagined it to be this bad.
Thus far, the goals that were
set by Coach McDougal before the
season have yet to be met. The Posse is
looking at a disappointing 1-5 record.
So far, the Posse’s only win was due to
forfeit by Carson-Newman. This win, of
course, will not be registered in the
minds of the players and coaches as a
real, hard-earned win. Possibly, the team
as a whole may feel that now they must
prove that they are indeed capable of
winning a game by simply outscoring
It’s no secret that teams like
Carson-Newman, Howard, and EVon
were in a tougher division. So, when
Elizabeth City came to town, the crowd
and the players felt confident that the
"rocks were out of the road."
Unfortunately, the Posse lost, 21-6.
The following week, the Posse
was on the road to Elon. Last season,
the Posse stunned the ’higher division’
team by defeating them at the Bronco
Stadium. Elon felt they had a point to
prove and did just that. The Posse fell to
Elon by a score of 31-0.
Despite the big loss, several
players were selected as CIAA players
of the week and Kenny Frazier leads the
CIAA in all purpose yards gained.
Week five of the 1991 season
didn’t get any easier. The Rams of
Winston-Salem State came to town
hoping to repeat last year’s rather large
The Posse led at the half with
a score of 8-6. Cheers rang out and the
team exhibited an attitude that took
everyone by surprise.
Coach Lindsay stated, "For the
first three quarters, a winning attitude
was displayed by the Broncos’ that was
not there all season."
The Posse captain, Foster
Wilkins, felt ’’the team wants to win and
that is very important because a victory
is most capable (sic) to those who want
Winston-Salem came back the
second half to out score the Posse, 28-8.
Even though the team lost. Coach
Lindsay was plea$ed ,iMttbinthe "killer
attitude" and went on to state, "If the
winning attitude stays present and our
young warriors taste that first victory,
nothing will stand in our way. The
Bronco Posse is alive and well."
It seems evident that the Posse
has the experience and heart that it
needs to win a football game. Coaches
see it, the fans see it, and even the
players can sense it but the score does
not reflect it. All of which makes one
wonder "what is going wrong?"
Fayetteville State struggling through
the 1991 season.
Lady Broncos' Have 'Unity', Lack 'Killer Instinct'
Lady Broncos coming together for the
The 1991 Fayetteville State
University Women’s Volleyball team,
coached by Elorine Hill, is on its way to
being ranked one of the top four teams
entering the CIAA Championship
Coach Hill expresses a great
enthusiasm about this year’s team. In
comparison to last year’s team, she says
that this year’s team has more depth,
players are always in the right positions,
and that there is an additional setter.
However, like all teams, the ladies need
a lot of work.
When asked what she liked best
about her team. Coach Hill simply
replied "the unity," but she dislikes the
fact that there is no "killer instinct"
within her young ladies at crunch time.
"We need to be more focused and more
Coach Hill’s expectations are
high. She expects her team to get better
with every practice. She also expects
two of her returning players, Elizabeth
lijima and Tracey Jackson, to contribute
more and show leadership as they take
on the role of captains.
Overall, Coach Hill is pleased
with her team and conveys hope that her
young ladies maintain a positive attitude
and seriousness about the team, its
goals, and its accomplishments. So far
the team has a record of 6 wins and 8
losses with 9 regular season games to
play before the tournament.
