The time and place are set, the plans are made, just need the finishing touches and soon your group of friends will be going out to watch a sporting event. The setting is a Saturday evening on a warm day in fall and the occasion calls for an intriguing football matchup.
I sat down with the Hawks’ sophomore wide receiver Mitchell Pollard before the team faced off against Colgate. The 5’9 175 lb. receiver has put together a great start to the 2011 season. Pollard recorded 10 catches for 88 yards in last week’s loss to Robert Morris, becoming the first Monmouth player to grab ten catches in a game since 2006. Pollard is currently ranked 14th in the NCAA in receptions per game, averaging 6.75.

It’s Saturday afternoon during the fall season, and inevitably the vibrant college football season. You flip on an ESPN game to find top notch, bowl contending matchups. With the fans crazy and players amped, there’s nothing more you could look for in a college game. Except, that’s where you’re wrong; what is missing from this scene? The answer is the presence of African-American (and minority) coaches in NCAA football.
