Stephen Curry Backs Launch of Howard U. Golf Program

An encounter between Howard University (HU) senior Otis Ferguson IV and NBA star Stephen Curry during Curry’s visit last January inspired the leader of the Golden State Warriors to support the dreams of Otis and fill a long-felt void in the university’s sports program.

And on Monday, Aug. 19, Curry, a three-time NBA champion, founder of SC30, Inc. and co-founder of Eat. Learn. Play, joined by Dr. Wayne A.I. Frederick, HU president and Kery Davis, HU athletics director, announced that he will financially support Howard’s golf program for the next six years.

The news took place at Langston golf course.

Otis, an accomplished golfer and among a group of student who helped start a golf club at HU, has been credited at lighting the spark that has now resulted in both boys’ and girls’ golf teams returning to the Bison family after a long hiatus.
