FAYETTEVILLE, NC - Legendary Fayetteville State University (FSU) golf coach Raymond McDougal has been named Grand Marshall for the 2013 FSU Homecoming Parade. This year's parade will be held at 9 a.m. on October 26. The parade will begin on Hillsborough Street and make its way up Murchison Road to Langdon Street.
McDougal, coach of FSU's powerhouse golf program, has coached the team to 17 of its 26 Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association titles. Leading FSU's golf program on two occasions, McDougal has also coached FSU to six PGA National Minority Division II golf titles -- the most in the history of the event -- in 16 appearances.
The Broncos have participated in eight NCAA DII Super Regional Tournaments and have finished as high as third in 2007 and second in 2009, where Fayetteville State earned its first NCAA Tournament berth to become the first HBCU in 35 years to make the championship tournament.
McDougal has coached five Golf All-Americans and CIAA Most Valuable Players, nine CIAA Tournament Medalists and 48 All-CIAA Performers. He has been named the CIAA Coach of the Year 13 times. FSU's golf team has received eight Sears Championship Trophies.
A native of Gifford, Fla., McDougal was an All-Conference and All-State performer for three years in football and basketball at Carver High School in Delray Beach. He is a 1958 graduate of Johnson C. Smith University where he was a four-year scholarship athlete in football and golf. McDougal played halfback and quarterback on the Golden Bulls football team.
McDougal became head football coach and head coach of the newly created men's golf program at FSU in 1970.
After a 3-5-1 and 5-4 football season, McDougal turned the golf program over to Dr. Moses Walker. He regained leadership of the golf program in 1993 after 11 seasons as the head football coach and one season as the Broncos' interim men's basketball coach. Under McDougal, the basketball team had a 10-17 record, while he finished his football coaching career with a 55-69-3 record.
Founded in 1867, FSU is the second-oldest public institution in North Carolina. It offers nearly 60 degrees in the arts, sciences, business, and education at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral levels. It serves a student body of nearly 6,000 students and has a faculty and staff of approximately 900.
