Prince McJunkins Memorial Scholarship

Shocker football player Prince McJunkins left an extraordinary legacy at Wichita State. Recruited in 1979 by Willie Jeffries, the first Black Division-1 head coach, McJunkins was named the Missouri Valley Conference Newcomer of the Year. He earned Player of the Year in both 1981 and 1982, when he led the Shockers to an 8-3 record and a win over bowl team the University of Kansas. He went on to play for the Ottawa Roughriders in the Canadian Football League. In 2008, he was inducted into the Wichita Sports Hall of Fame.

We invite you to contribute to the Prince McJunkins Memorial Scholarship to honor this legendary Shocker by enabling a student with financial need to pursue their education. Once our goal is met, the fund will be endowed and will benefit students in perpetuity.

No. 1 Prince McJunkins ’86, a national standout quarterback who played for the Shockers from 1979-1982, scrambles for yardage.

In the mid-1970s, head coach Jim Wright is determined to spread “Gold Fever” by way of a tough defense and exciting passing offense.

A promotional shot from the 1980s captures the Shockers in charge. With attendance averaging 23,000 fans per game, the 1982 season is a record-setting one for the team, whose rushing offense is ranked 10th nationally.

Former offensive guard Jay Hull ’83 addresses reunion-goers at the 2014 All Years Shocker Football Reunion.

Among the more than 100 former players in attendance at the 2014 reunion, there were at least two players representing every team since 1950 — as well as a number of NFL teams.

No. 53 Robert Barley fs ’79 is one of 86 former Shocker players and coaches who returned to campus in 2009.
