The 2002 and 2003 MEAC Offensive Player of the Year, Suber was a First Team All-MEAC honoree at quarterback in 2001, 2002 and 2003. The two-time All-American was also a finalist for the Walter Payton Award, and he led the Wildcats to the 2002 MEAC championship and two appearances in the NCAA Division I FCS playoffs (2002, 2003). Suber currently ranks first all-time in program history in rushing touchdowns, second in rushing yards and fifth in both passing yards and passing touchdowns.

Lauren McCoy, Bethune-Cookman
A 2016 inductee into the Bethune-Cookman Athletics Hall of Fame, McCoy recorded three 20-win seasons in the circle as Bethune-Cookman softball became a MEAC dynasty and made NCAA history in 2005. That year, she led the Lady Wildcats to the NCAA Super Regional (the first time an HBCU advanced out of the regional round), winning the Gainesville Regional and going toe-to-toe with Cat Osterman in a 1-0 defeat to Texas after earning the MEAC’s first-ever at-large bid to the NCAA field. A three-time First Team All-MEAC honoree (2003-05), McCoy threw five no-hitters in her career, including two perfect games, and she had an ERA of 1.70 or lower in each of her three seasons. McCoy ended her B-CU career with 456 strikeouts and 28 shutouts.
