University of Maryland Eastern Shore alumni and staffers are hoping to relaunch the school's vaunted football program, which disbanded more than 30 years ago because of budget cuts. The school is conducting a feasibility study to determine whether it can support a team, according to The Washington Post, and a group of alumni and staffers calling themselves Hawks for Football is hoping Dr. Juliette B. Bell, Eastern Shore's new president, will be amenable to resurrecting the program. The school has a history of football success: Dozens of players went on to the NFL and the HBCU racked up at least 20 straight winning seasons. Hawks for Football told the Post it hopes to get a program in place in four years.
