NORFOLK, Virginia -- After dominating CIAA football, coaches Latrell Scott and Connell Maynor have found MEAC a tougher nut to crack.
Coach Scott, 41, is in his second year at Norfolk State University following two banner seasons as the head football coach at Virginia State University.
Coach Maynor, 47, is starting his third season at Hampton University after a brilliant four-year run at Winston-Salem State University in North Carolina.
At last week’s MEAC Media Day in Norfolk, Hampton University was picked to finish fifth this season and Norfolk State sixth in the 11-school FCS conference. Voting was among MEAC coaches.
North Carolina A&T State University was picked to finish first after tying with Bethune-Cookman and North Carolina Central universities in last year’s final standings.
