Buccaneers rallying support for NJCAA football media guide contest

Blinn College could be featured on the cover of the 2013 NJCAA Football Media Guide – and their fans could be the ones to get them there.

The NJCAA launched a nationwide poll through Facebook today to determine which member college will grace the cover.

The poll will be conducted in three rounds at bit.ly/NJCAAVote, beginning with an open vote that runs through 9 a.m. on July 24. To cast a vote, participants must comment on the Facebook post with the school they would like to see featured on the media guide cover.

The second round of voting will feature the top eight vote-getters, with the top four vote-getters in the second round advancing to the finals. Each college that qualifies for the final round of voting will be included on the media guide cover, but only the college with the highest vote total will be featured.

Votes will be reset at the end of each round. Each Facebook user will be allowed one vote per round.

Blinn football has won four NJCAA national championships and became the first program to win back-to-back national titles in 1995 and '96. The Buccaneers have also won national championships in 2006 and 2009. Ten Blinn players, one coach, three contributors and the 1972 team have all been named to the NJCAA Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
