Homecoming Alumni Meet and Greet

By Regan Farley October marks the start of concerts, football games, meeting alumni, and you guessed it, Homecoming. Each year more than a handful of alumni return to their alma mater to display their school spirit, and even meet student who currently attend. During homecoming this year the Office of Alumni Relations along with the Student Government Association wanted to bridge the gap between students and alumni of the university. “We believe that if students don’t have one working relationship with an alumnus that doesn’t currently work at Lincoln University then that can be seen as a problem,” said Brandon Harris, Student Government Association President-Pro Temp. Over 45 currently Lincoln University students showed up armed with resumes and business cards in hand. But stud...

LU Football Player Prepares for His Future

By Cerella Ferebee Twenty- two year old Daron Jones expects winning a respectable season. During last Saturday’s game The Battle of the First, against Cheyney University, Jones felt he didn’t play his best for senior starter. “The game this past Saturday was a shocker. Cheyney actually got away with one really lucky. I feel as though if we lined up against them again it would be a different outcome,” said Jones. The Baltimore native who now resides in Woodlawn County was a football star for the Cardinal Gibbons Crusaders. Before Lincoln, he transferred from Robert Morris University in Pittsburg, Pa. At first the change was for better scenery, and LU is closer to Baltimore. Jones who plays strong safety, also referred to as an outside linebacker, was born and raised in south Bal...

Lions Fall in Opener

By Taron Jordan In the Battle of the Firsts, the Cheyney University Wolves were able to overcome a huge day by Lions QB, true freshman Doug Cook and defeat Lincoln University 21-19.  This was the Lions first defeat at the Claws of the Wolves in over 100 years. Despite big games from players on both the Lions’ offensive and defensive sides of the ball, specials teams and turnovers, five by the Lions and only one by the wolves, were the difference. “We were not able to maintain our momentum throughout the whole game,” Lions head coach O.J. Abanishe said. “We had an up and down game. I thought Doug Cook played very well as a freshman. He made some mistakes, as freshmen do, but we are very pleased with the performance he had today.” The Lions were lead on offense by Cook, who went ...
