Scope and Contents

The VSC/VSU Football program began in 1982, and its first coach was Jim Goodman.  Other coaches include Mike Cavan, Hal Mumme, and  Mike Kelly.  The first athlete from the VSC football team to play professional football was Jesse Tuggle.  The team is division two of the Gulf South Conference.  President Hugh Bailey brought Football to VSC early in his tenure, and has been very active in supporting it. The Football Collection includes one box of programs from 1982-1987, featuring the teams, the games, and news and highlights from the season.  Schedules from various seasons (scattered), announcements, and publications of the Athletic Department for the Football program make up one folder.  The Bailey’s hosted football parties at their home during the early years of the program, and a folder of invitations and information documents their efforts.  Football camp information and newsclippings covering the team complete the collection.
