The main lobby area would be dedicated to the exploits of the 1940’s era. The left corridor and associated classrooms would house memorabilia from the 1950’s and the right corridor would and associated classrooms would house memorabilia from the 1960’s. In addition, the plan includes the construction of a new facility to house coaches’ offices, a weight room, and team rooms in between the Museum and football stadium.

Winning Teams are trained, not born!  Once, UMES was one of the finest football teams and coaching staffs among Historically Black Colleges and Universities. In order to restore our winning legacy, our athletes will need a football facility that will provide them an environment that is conducive to winning.  Hawks’ Way will be funded by a combination of private donations, state funding, and bonding. We envision fans tailgating along Hawks Way, and the Soul Explosion Marching Band proceeding through the new hub of campus on game day afternoons in the fall.

Hawks For Football (HFF):

In 2005, Hawks have come together with a renewed commitment to restore football to our Alma Mater.  The goal of this organization includes: raising funds for the reinstatement of football, supporting and promoting a program of excellence in academic and athletics, supporting the UMES Endowment Campaign, and engaging students in the tradition – the legacy.  

Since December 2005, Hawks have come together with a renewed commitment to restore football to our Alma Mater. The goal of this organization includes: raising funds for the reinstatement of football, supporting and promoting a program of excellence in academic and athletics, supporting the UMES Endowment Campaign, and engaging students in the tradition – the legacy.

Hawks for Football, Inc., a not for profit organization, has developed a Memorandum of Agreement resulting in the establishment of the Hawks For Football Quasi Endowment Fund. This endowment allows a tax-deductible contribution to the reinstatement effort and supports the school’s Fourteen (14) Million Dollar Endowment Campaign. The goals of the HFF include:

Fund raising and sponsorships

Support and promotion of programs of excellence - Academic and Athletics

Supporting the UMES Endowment Campaign

Engaging students in the tradition – the legacy

Funding Mechanisms (Making it Happen):

Hawks For Football Quasi Endowed Fund

Hawks For Football Quasi Endowed Fund is the more flexible of the two endowed funds in two important ways. First, monies from contributions and income generated by this fund can be used for scholarships, equipment, program administration, and program promotions, fully funding or augmenting the cost of it. Second, the fund does not include a deadline clause similar to the one in the Vernon Skip McCain Football Reinstatement Fund.
