On night before classes began, the student body of CNU came together for a spirited event on the great lawn. When the Bell Tower struck 9pm, everyone snapped their blue glows sticks and began throwing them in the air to the beat of the music played by a DJ.

From The Archive: Tunde Ogun | Photo by Jesse Hutcheson, CNU OCPR
Here’s a shot from my archive of Tunde Ogun during the 2009 season. It seemed like he always had a way of finding my camera after breaking away from a defender. 
Here is the recent press release from CNUSPORTS on Ogun’s most recent accomplishments: 

“NEWPORT NEWS, Va.- Tunde Ogun, an All-American running back for the CNU football squad, recently led his team to the championship of the Polish American Football League. Ogun’s Gdynia Seahawks defeated the favored Wroclaw Panthers, 41-32, in Polish Super Final IX for their second title in three years.
The title game proved to be the Tunde Ogun show, as the 6”1, 220-pound running back and game MVP powered his way to score four of the Seahawks six touchdowns. The Panthers simply could not stop Ogun, who was a dominant running back for the Christopher Newport football squad from 2007-09.After starting his collegiate career at Cincinnati, Ogun transferred to CNU for his final three seasons and set school records for rushing yards in a game (265), rushes in a season (267), and rushing yardage in a career (3,425). He also scored more touchdowns (38) than any other CNU player in history. Ogun graduated from Christopher Newport in May of 2010.”
