Johnson C. Smith came up on the short end of the FCS Senior Scout Bowl, but the experience was worth the trip to Myrtle Beach, S.C.

The North team led by Golden Bulls’ head coach Steve Aycock lost 20-17 to the South on Dec. 15 at Doug Shaw Stadium. Four Golden Bull seniors – Rashad Dukes, Matthew Jeffries, Jordan Mosely and Darryl Rankin played on the North squad.


 “It was a great experience and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world,” said Mosely, who played every down at left tackle. “I was glad I had the opportunity to showcase my skills against some quality Division I talent. Not only did I play, but I thrived amongst my peers.”


Mosely earned a spot on the South Carolina College All-Star Bowl Watch List and is a prospect for the Raycom College Football All-Star Classic.


Players from Division I programs such as Alcorn State, Campbell, Coastal Carolina, Davidson, Howard, N.C. A&T, N.C. Central and Western Carolina, participated in the game.


At the end of regulation, the game was tied 14-14. The North connected on a 37-yard field goal to go ahead 17-14. The South managed a touchdown after three plays on its first possession to win.


Dukes (Berry Academy) tallied five tackles at defensive tackle while Rankin (Independence High) tallied four tackles at outside linebacker. Jeffries, a receiver, caught three passes.


“Everything was well-organized, from operations to practice to the team tempo,” Aycock said. “It was good being able to coach that caliber of student-athlete. Both the kids and the coaches made it obvious that they were there with a purpose.”
JCSU went 6-4 this season, the Golden Bulls’ first back-to-back winning years since the 1972-73 season.
