Agribusiness Major Antoine Richardson Selected to Represent SU at the Super Bowl

Baton Rouge, La. Antoine Richardson, sophomore agricultural business student from Wynne, Arkansas, has been selected to represent Southern University at the 3rd annual EA SPORTS™ Madden NFL 23 x HBCU Tournament with an exclusive experience during Super Bowl LVII week February 6 – February 13.


The all-expense paid ‘experience-ship’ is designed to provide students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities a chance to compete and learn the business of sports through shadowing opportunities and networking events.


Over the past several weeks, Richardson has attended weekly video calls to prepare himself for his week with the league including tips for creating LinkedIn profiles, resume building, networking strategies, email etiquette, and more. The NFL will host Richardson and 14 other HBCU students to learn about the business side of football through various events, activations, and career development sessions with NFL partners including Microsoft and Electronic Arts. This is an opportunity to learn valuable career advice from NFL executives and key stakeholders and potentially create long term connections that can be beneficial for life after college.


The highlights of his participation in the Madden NFL 23 x HBCU tournament will premiere on February 11 at 3:00 PM ET on the NFL YouTube channel where finalists will go head-to-head competing for the title and a piece of the $70,000 prize pool in cash and prizes. To conclude their week, Richardson will attend Super Bowl LVII, on February 12, 2023, at State Farm Stadium.
