   Duke University was created in 1924 by James
Buchanan Duke as a memorial to his father, Wash-
ington Duke. The Dukes, a Durham family who built
a worldwide financial empire in the manufacture of
tobacco and developed the production of electricity
in the two Carolinas, had long been interested in Trin-
ity College. Trinity traced its roots to 1838 in nearby
Randolph County when local Methodist and Quaker
communities joined forces to support a permanent
school, which they named Union Institute. After a
brief period as Normal College (1851-59), the school
changed its name to Trinity College in 1859 and af-
filiated with the Methodist Church.


  The college moved to Durham in 1892 with finan-
cial assistance from Washington Duke and the dona-
tion of land by Julian S. Carr. In December 1924, the
school’s trustees gratefully accepted the provisions
of James B. Duke’s indenture creating the family
philanthropic foundation, The Duke Endowment,
which provided, in part, for the expansion of Trinity
College into Duke University.


   As a result of the Duke gift, Trinity underwent
both physical and academic expansion. The original
Durham Campus became known as East Campus
when it was rebuilt in stately Georgian architecture.
West Campus, Gothic in style and dominated by the
soaring 210-foot tower of Duke Chapel, opened in
1930. Academic expansion of the university included
the establishment of new graduate and professional
schools.


  Modern times have seen Duke realize its founder’s
aspirations to become a major center of learning.
The Duke University Medical Center has achieved
international prominence, and many Duke schools
and departments are consistently ranked among the
nation’s best.

    The average temperature in
Durham is 59 degrees and snowfall
totals less than eight inches per year.
A temperate climate and the unique
blend of big-city activity with an
unfrenzied pace makes Durham a
great place to call home.

   The Durham Bulls, Tampa Bay’s
AAA baseball affiliate, are a popular
attraction among area
residents.

  In 2002, Employment Review Magazine ranked
 “The Triangle” area of Durham, Chapel Hill and
   Raleigh as the number one place in America to
 live and work. Money Magazine made the same
                  selection in 1994.



                                        Located in the heart of North Carolina’s rolling
                                     Piedmont region, Durham stands out as a gem among
                                     southern cities. Through the years, the city has evolved
                                     from a tobacco and textile town into an international
                                     center for medicine, scholarship, biotechnology and
                                     electronics.

                                         Founded in 1853, Durham is widely recognized for
                                     its diversity. Originally a manufacturing center, the city
                                     now is known for excellence in medicine, education,
                                     research and industry. The wide range of activities avail-
                                     able in the area lends the city a multifaceted appeal that
                                     strikes even first-time visitors.

                                        Durham has a natural appeal as well, characterized
                                     by 98,000 acres of hardwood and evergreen forests
                                     including the only remaining old growth Piedmont bot-
                                     tomland forests and 7,800 acres of cropland. Hills and
                                     dales, meandering rivers and streams, several lakes, 26
                                     rare plant species and several rare species of birds and
                                     animals can also be found here.

                                        With 187,000 residents in the one-city county, Durham
                                     is the fourth-largest city in North Carolina. It is ideally
                                     located on the large and small scale. Within the im-
                                     mediate area it stands as the pinnacle of the “Triangle”
                                     region of North Carolina, a metropolitan population of
                                     1,000,000 people that includes Chapel Hill to the south
                                     and west and Raleigh, the state capital, to the south and
                                     east. On a regional level, this area is the primary center
                                     of culture, sports, education and government between
                                     Washington, D.C., and Atlanta.

                                         With excellent sports and cultural activities in the
                                     area, Durham is a fun place to be. People from all walks

        From the mountains to the west and the beaches of the
     Atlantic Ocean to the east, North Carolina’s landscape is as
        diverse — and beautiful — as any state in the nation.

      Millions of tourists come to North Carolina each year to
            take advantage of all the state has to offer.




22
   North Carolina is a state of diversity — diversity in
its population, in its economic production and in its
beautiful scenery. According to the 2000 census, North
Carolina was the home to more than eight million
people of many nationalities.

   Known for its major production of tobacco, North
Carolina is also a major producer of textiles and fur-
niture, fueled by the thousands of acres of forests that
cover the state. Among its other leading products are
broilers, hogs, turkeys, greenhouse products, sweet
potatoes, corn, soybeans, peanuts and eggs. In addition,
there are hundreds of coastal fisheries that yield shrimp,
menhaden and crabs as the primary catches.

    The scenery throughout the state is diverse and
    beautiful. From the mountains to the west and the
       beaches adjoining the Atlantic Ocean to the east,
        North Carolina is one of the nation’s most pic-
          turesque states. Some of the major attractions
           in the state include the Great Smoky Moun-
           tains, the Blue Ridge National Parkway, the
           Cape Hatteras and Cape Lookout National
           Seashores, the Wright Brothers National Me-
          morial at Kitty Hawk, Guilford Courthouse
         and Moores Creek National Military Parks.
       This scenery, enhanced by a mild climate with
     enough rainfall to assist with the state’s abundant
 greenery, attracts millions of visitors who come to
North Carolina annually to take advantage of its clean
and uncluttered beaches, its string of forests and the
mountain ranges in the western part of the state.

   In recent years, North Carolina has become a favor-
ite place for the entertainment industry. Some of the
television shows and movies filmed in North Carolina
include Cast Away (2001), The Green Mile (1999), Daw-
son’s Creek (1997-2003), Kiss the Girls (1997), I Know
What You Did Last Summer (1997), Forrest Gump
(1998), The Fugitive (1993), The Last of the Mohicans
(1992), Sleeping with the Enemy (1991), Bull Durham
(1988) and Dirty Dancing (1987).

   In August of 2002, the Duke football program moved
into a new home — The Yoh Football Center. Located in
the northeast corner of Wallace Wade Stadium, the $22 mil-
lion, 70,000-square foot facility is named for the Yoh Family
on the strength of Trustee Chairman Spike Yoh and Mary
Milus Yoh’s lead gift of $5.5 million.


  The state-of-the art facility features a speed and agility
       room, lockerroom, coaches offices, a players’ lounge
            and a memorabilia floor. The completion of
                the building was celebrated with a rib-
                  bon-cutting dinner on August 30 — the
                    night before Duke opened the 2002
                      season with a 24-16 victory over East
                       Carolina — and a dedication dinner
                        on October 4 during Homecoming
                        Weekend.

   Over 750 gifts were received to fund the building of the Yoh
Center, with over half coming from former Blue Devil football
players. The Duke Football Campaign, the fund-raising effort for
the facility, was spearheaded by the late Dr. Frank Bassett along
with Leo Hart. Bassett, who served as Duke’s team physician from
1966-93, was honored by the National Association of Athletic De-
velopment Directors with the organization’s 2002 Volunteer of the
Year Award. Hart, one of just three three-time first team All-ACC
selections in Duke history, played quarterback for the Blue Devils
from 1968-70 and continues to rank among the school’s all-time
passing leaders. In addition, tremendous support was given by
the Gridiron Society which is chaired by Dr. Bob Deyton.




                                                                 37
 Wallace Wade Stadium also owns a special niche
 in college football history in that it is the only
 facility outside Pasadena, Calif., to host the Rose
 Bowl. The 1942 Rose Bowl came to Durham dur-
 ing World War II when gatherings of large crowds
 on the West Coast were dangerous. Oregon State
 defeated Duke 20-16 in the contest.

 Today, in honor of that occasion, rose bushes from
 the Tournament of Roses Committee flank the bust
 of Wallace Wade at the stadium entrance.

   Wallace Wade Stadium, home of the Duke Blue Devils
since 1929, ranks among the finest collegiate football stadi-
ums in the nation. It has been the home for 18 conference
championship teams, eight bowl squads, 56 All-America
players and over 200 Blue Devil victories.

        Named for legendary Duke head coach Wallace
        Wade, Duke’s stadium is one of the most com-
         fortable in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The
          horseshoe-shaped structure, nestled among the
           greenery and towering pines of the surrounding
            Duke forest, features aluminum bench seating,
            newly remodeled rest rooms, a lighting system
            for evening and night games and a modern,
            computerized video scoreboard installed in
            1998.

                The facility was known as Duke Stadium
            when it opened for the first time on October 5,
           1929. The University of Pittsburgh defeated Duke
         in that first game, but since that time the Blue Devils
       have enjoyed a winning edge on their home turf.
     Duke owns a record of 206-166-7 in games played there,
 with 58 of the victories coming by shutout. The stadium
seats 33,941 fans, making it an intimate — and picturesque
— setting for bigtime college football.

   In July of 1967, Duke’s Board of Trustees approved the
renaming of the stadium to honor Wade, who coached the
Devils to a 110-36-7 record and two Rose Bowls. The dedi-
cation took place September 30, 1967.

   Several improvements have been made to the stadium
throughout the years, but none more important than the
construction of the Yoh Football Center on the stadium’s
northeast corner. The Yoh Football Center, featuring new
weight, training, meeting and locker rooms, an indoor
workout facility, offices, an academic support area and
a memorabilia area honoring Duke’s football tradition,
became the home to the Duke football program during the
summer of 2002. It provides current and future Blue Devils
with state-of-the-art facilities that compare favorably to any
program in the nation.

   The sights from gameday at Duke show that the Blue
Devil football program is one branded by excitement, ac-
tion and spirit.

   Duke’s home games, played at historic Wallace Wade
Stadium, offer the pageantry only felt on a college football
Saturday. In terms of media exposure, Duke hosts in excess
of 75 media members at each home game. Since 1997, Duke
has appeared on either national or regional television at least
five times in each of those 10 seasons.

  Head coach David Cutcliffe’s goal of resurrecting Duke’s
proud football tradition appears to be on track. The game-
day experience, like the one at Duke, is an integral part of
Cutcliffe’s equation to lead the Blue Devils back to national
prominence.




                                                              41

                   Duke’s football tradition stands up
                   against that of many private universi-
                   ties around the country. The Blue Devils
have appeared in all four of the traditional major bowl
games — Rose, Orange, Sugar and Cotton — and have
earned 18 league championships in both the Southern and
Atlantic Coast Conferences.

With 64 overall selections, Duke has placed 56 of its players
on All-America teams and has 11 College Football Hall of
Fame inductees.

Several events have shaped the rich tradition of Duke
football, from:
   Duke (then Trinity College) and North Carolina play-
ing the first college football game below the Mason-Dixon
line
  The 1938 Iron Dukes team that went unscored upon dur-
ing the regular season
   Duke playing host to the 1942 Rose Bowl in Durham

    Consistency. It’s the mark of true excellence in any
endeavor. However, in today’s intercollegiate athletics,
competition has become so balanced and so competitive
that it is virtually impossible to maintain a high level of
consistency.

   Yet the Atlantic Coast Conference has defied the odds.
Now in its 55th year of competition, the ACC has long
enjoyed the reputation as one of the strongest and most
competitive intercollegiate conferences in the nation.

   Since the league’s inception in 1953, ACC schools have
captured 105 national championships, including 56 in
women’s competition and 49 in men’s.

    The conference had an immediate impact on the national
college football scene in the fall of 1953 when Maryland
captured the first of what would eventually be five national
football titles for the ACC. Clemson laid claim to the league’s
second national title in 1981 while Georgia Tech followed
suit in 1990. Florida State pocketed national titles No. 4 and
5 in 1993 and 1999. In addition, Miami has won five national
titles over the past 25 seasons.

    The 12 ACC institutions have produced 523 first or
second team gridiron All-Americas and 72 first-team aca-
demic All-Americas. ACC schools have had 2,124 players
selected in the professional football draft, including 210
first round selections.

   If success is best measured in terms of wins and losses,
then the ACC over the years has proved itself to be among
the elite in Division I-A football. The ACC is the nation’s
winningest bowl conference as the 12 current league teams
are a combined 143-123-5 (.537) in post-season play.




                                                              45

    Duke boasts more ACC Player of the Year
honorees — 10 — than any other school in the
league.


   Quarterback Jerry Barger was the first Blue
Devil to receive the prestigious honor after lead-
ing Duke to an 8-2-1 record, the ACC title and
a berth in the Orange Bowl in 1954. Five years
later, guard Mike McGee captured the award
on his way to winning the Outland Trophy as
the nation’s top lineman.


   After halfback Jay Wilkinson picked up the
citation in 1963 by scoring 12 touchdowns, Duke
had back-to-back winners with defensive back
Ernie Jackson (1971) and running back Steve
Jones (1972).


   In the decade of the 1980s, four Blue Devils
were crowned as wide receiver Chris Castor
(1982), quarterback Ben Bennett (1983), quarter-
back Anthony Dilweg (1988) and wide receiver
Clarkston Hines (1989) claimed the trophy.


    Tailback Robert Baldwin became Duke’s
10th conference player of the year in 1994 after
rushing for 1,187 yards as the Blue Devils went
8-4 and played in the Hall of Fame Bowl.

   More than 85 Duke players have gone on to play profes-
sionally over the past 60 years.

   This past season, Patrick Mannelly, who finished his
Duke career in 1997 before being drafted in the NFL’s sixth
round,, helped the Chicago Bears to the NFC Championship
and berth in Super Bowl XLI.

    In the spring of 2007, Duke’s three team captains from
last year’s club — Casey Camero (Tampa Bay), Eli Nichols
(Washington) and John Talley (Washington) — signed free
agent contracts with NFL organizations.

    Duke has supplied the NFL with some of its greatest
players — Hall of Famers Sonny Jurgensen, Ace Parker and
  George McAfee, as well as All-Pro selections Mike Curtis,
        Ed Newman, Al DeRogatis and Bob Grupp.

          Linebacker Kevin Lewis helped the New York
     Giants to the NFC Championship in 2002 while Curtis,
    two-time All-Pro pick, was on Baltimore’s Super Bowl
   championship team in 1971.

     The Blue Devils have had five first round NFL Draft
selections and one first round supplemental NFL pick:
McAfee (1940), Steve Lach (1942), Curtis (1965), Bob
Matheson (1967), Mike Junkin (1987) and Dave Brown
(1992 - supplemental).

    Duke’s Strength & Conditioning program is under the
direction of Noel Durfey. Durfey and Blue Devil head coach
David Cutcliffe worked together at the University of Missis-
sippi.

“We are certainly excited to have Noel Durfey join our staff.
He is a tremendous addition to the Duke family.” – David
Cutcliffe

    In the spring of 2008, Duke’s Sonny Falcone was named
Master Strength and Conditioning Coach — the highest honor
in the profession — by the Collegiate Strength and Condition-
ing Coaches association. Falcone has been on the Blue Devil
staff since 1980.

                     Led by nationally renowned physicians
                  and certified athletic trainers, Duke’s sports
                 medicine program is widely considered the
                very best in the nation.

                 In essence, the mission of the sports medicine
            program at Duke is to combine the latest innova-
         tions and technology in injury recognition, preven-
      tion, treatment and performance enhancement with an
   outstanding collection of doctors, certified athletic trainers
and other support personnel to give the Blue Devil student-
athlete a quality experience while at Duke.

    Dr. Claude T. Moorman III, former head team physician
for the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens, serves as Duke’s head team
physician. A 1987 graduate from the University of Cincinnati
College of Medicine, he returned to Duke after serving as the
Director of Sports Medicine at the University of Maryland
Medical Center from 1996-2001. Moorman played football
at Duke before graduating in 1983.

    The Duke athletic training staff is headed by Dave Engel-
hardt, now in his 27th season at Duke, and Hap Zarzour, who
is in his 16th year as the head football trainer.

    In the summer of 2002, Duke opened its newest training
room in the Yoh Football Center. It is a 5,500 square-foot facil-
ity, featuring extensive hydrotherapy system, rehabilitation
and treatment areas. The hydrotherapy area includes a 10 x
20 multidepth rehabilitation pool featuring an underwater
treadmill, an 8 x 8 chiller pool and an 8 x 8 warm whirlpool.

     The treatment area is highlighted by modern modali-
ties and the latest technological equipment. Duke’s new
rehabilitation equipment ensures constant monitoring and
thoughtful progression through every stage of rehabilita-
tion. An unweighted treadmill and Biodex muscle testing
and rehabilitation equipment is also featured in Duke’s
rehabilitation area.

    Other facets of the sports medicine program include the
very best training meals, monitored by sports nutritionist
Franca Alphin and team meal coordinator Faye McIntosh,
access to prominent sports psychologist Richard Keefe and
the ability to utilize the resources of the Duke Sports Medicine
Center. Those resources include The Duke Sports Medicine
Clinic, Michael Krzyzewski Human Performance Lab (K-Lab)
and the Duke Sports Performance Program. Each program
brings an important element to the care of Duke student-
athletes.

ants to the Super Bowl and earned MVP honors after throwing for
255 yards and two touchdowns in a 17-14 win over the previously
unbeaten New England Patriots on February 3, 2008.
  Cutcliffe also coached three-time All-SEC running back Deuce
McAllister, who set Rebel career records for rushing yards (3,060)
and rushing touchdowns (37) and was a first round selection of the
New Orleans Saints in the 2001 NFL Draft.

        In the spring of 2005, Cutcliffe joined the
     coaching staff at Notre Dame, but resigned
     from the post for health reasons. He then re-
     turned to Knoxville prior to the 2006 season.
     Cutcliffe has helped the Volunteers to a 19-8
     record from 2006-07 with two appearances in
     the Outback Bowl. In 2007, Tennessee went
     10-4 with a 6-2 league mark en route to win-
     ning the SEC Eastern Division crown. The
     Tennessee offense allowed an NCAA-low four
     sacks on the year, and quarterback Erik Ainge
     earned MVP honors of the Outback Bowl after
     throwing for 365 yards and two touchdowns
     as the Volunteers defeated Wisconsin, 21-17.
     Tennessee running back Arian Foster rushed
     for 1,193 yards on the year while wide receiver
     Lucas Taylor reached the 1,000-yard plateau
     for receiving yards. In addition, offensive
     guard Anthony Parker garnered first team
     All-SEC and second team All-America acco-
     lades.
        With Cutcliffe at offensive coordinator,
     Tennessee scored 30 or more points in 62 of
     100 games, posting a 59-3 (.952) ledger in
     those contests. The Volunteers compiled an
     overall record of 173-54-7 (.754) during his 19
     seasons on staff. Cutcliffe is the only coach in
     SEC history to have two quarterbacks throw
     for over 10,000 career yards while his offenses
     produced the all-time leading passers, rushers
     and receivers at both Mississippi and Tennes-
     see.
        A native of Birmingham, Ala., Cutcliffe
     graduated from the University of Alabama in
     1976. He got his start in the coaching profes-
     sion at Banks High School — his alma mater
     — and spent four years as an assistant coach
     before becoming the head coach in 1980.
        Cutcliffe is married to the former Karen
     Oran of Harriman, Tenn., and they are the
     parents of four children — Chris, Marcus,
     Katie and Emily.




          Over the past two seasons, Cutcliffe helped Tennessee win 19
       games with two appearances in the Outback Bowl.
           In 2007, Cutcliffe and the Volunteers went 10-4, captured the
       SEC Eastern Division championship and defeated Wisconsin in the
       Outback Bowl as Erik Ainge earned game MVP honors. Ainge was
       later selected by the New York Jets in the 2008 NFL Draft.
           In 1998, Cutcliffe was named the recipient of the Frank Broyles
       Award, an honor presented annually to the top assistant coach in the
       nation.

  One of the best wide receivers ever to wear a Duke uniform, Scottie
Montgomery was hired by head coach David Cutcliffe as an assistant
coach to lead the wide receiving corps.

  A member of the coaching staff at his alma mater since 2006,
Montgomery’s wide receiving unit in 2007 was headlined by second
team All-ACC pick Eron Riley and senior captain Jomar Wright.
Riley, who posted one of the top single-game receiving performances
in Duke history with a six-catch, 235-yard, four-touchdown outing
at Navy in September 22, 2007, caught 40 passes for 830 yards and
nine touchdowns on the year while leading the ACC in yards per
reception at 20.8. The Savannah, Ga., native will enter his final season

  On Duke’s all-time pass receiving charts, Montgomery
ranks second in receptions (171), third in yards (2,379),
tied for seventh in 100-yard receiving games (4) and
eighth in touchdowns (13). He caught 51 passes in both
1997 and 1999 and registered a career-high 60 receptions
as a junior in 1998. The 60 catches are the most by a Duke
player in a single season since All-America Clarkston
Hines hauled in 61 passes during the 1989 campaign.
Hines and Montgomery are the only Duke players to
post three straight seasons with at least 50 receptions
and 600 yards.

  Montgomery’s name also is etched into the Duke
record book for longest plays, ranking tied for second
for pass completions with an 88-yard catch from Bobby
Campbell against Vanderbilt in 1998 and fourth under
kickoff returns with a 99-yard return versus Wake For-

4,188 career all-purpose yards rank as the third-highest
total in school history.

       Zac Roper enters his first season on the Blue Devil coaching unit.
     At Duke, Roper serves as recruiting coordinator while coaching the
     running backs and assisting with the special teams.

      From 2005-07, Roper helped the Cornell Big Red to an overall ledger
     of 16-14. He coached the running backs and tight ends during his first
     two seasons before switching to cornerbacks in 2007 and also served
     as special teams coordinator. Roper coached or recruited eight Ivy
     League Player of the Week selections during his three seasons.

       On the special teams front in 2007, Cornell paced the league in punt
     return average — returning two punts for touchdowns during the
     year — and kickoff coverage. The Big Red also posted touchdowns
     via fake field goal and kickoff return.

      Coaching the running backs in 2006, Roper tutored Luke Siwula,
     who rushed for 885 yards in 2006 en route to receiving second team
     All-Ivy League honors. In 2005, he mentored the tight ends as Cor-

       Prior to joining the Big Red staff, Roper spent four
     years at Ole Miss as a graduate administrative aide
     and graduate assistant coach under current Duke
     head coach David Cutcliffe, working with the wide
     receivers, tight ends and placekickers. Mississippi’s
     2003 squad won 10 games with a share of the SEC
     Western Division title and defeated Oklahoma State,
     31-28, in the Cotton Bowl.

       Ole Miss kicker Jonathan Nichols enjoyed a
     sensational season in 2003 by earning All-SEC and
     All-America honors while winning the Lou Groza
     Award as the nation’s top kicker. He graduated as
     the school’s all-time leader in total points (344) and
     finished his career having made 117 consecutive
