Howard University’s Mike London Named An Eddie Robinson Award Finalist

    After guiding the Howard University Football team to its first winning season in five years, Coach Mike London was named a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Award, which is awarded annually to college football’s top head coach in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision.
     
    “I am extremely humbled and honored to be considered for this prestigious award,” London stated. “We all stand on the shoulders of others that have helped us along the way. I am thankful to so many in my life and those who made this consideration a reality.”

    London was among the 18 finalists selected for this year’s award.
     
    London’s first season at HU began with the program’s first FBS win as the Bison beat heavily favored UNLV in what some have called one of the biggest upsets in college football history.
