Q. I am looking some information or history on the UNCW club football team. Do they still play? I started as quarterback and served as the club president in 1987. Terry Schappert was my starting wide receiver.
A. According to UNCW athletic communications chief Joe Browning, the UNCW club football team was established in 1977-78 and competed in the North Carolina Club Football Association (NCCFA). During its inaugural season, the team posted wins over undefeated teams from Appalachian State and N.C. State. Club football continued until 1991 when the program was suspended by the Student Activities Office for failure to complete university requirements for liability releases.
