Title

Article "Black Frosh Is Satisfied"

Description

The article talks about Weldon Edwards, University of Richmond's first black football player to receive a grant-in-aid. Edwards had many schools to choose from, but ultimately chose Richmond because of how prestigious a school it was and how close it was to his home. Edwards was the third black athlete to be signed to the school that year. He was a tailback for the football team as well as ran track in the winter because of his speed. There were rumors that he had to quit the team because he missed a week of practice, but he assured everyone that he was still on the team, just injured that week and was very pleased with everything at Richmond.
