I was inspired initially by the NCFA and later “The History of a Fictional Football League” by @Veras. I really wanted to bring this back and do more regarding it. I started this concept on here in 2013 and never completed it. I’ve came up with numerous ideas, past and present, and this by far is my favorite.

I've yet to come up with a University name for this fictional university (suggestions) but logo's and athletic team name are below. I'm thinking of "Charleston Harbor State" or "Fort of South Carolina- Charleston. I kind of want to include South Carolina and Charleston in the university name. Fort of South Carolina- Charleston history is that it was formerly called Fort Moultrie College as it was near Fort Moultrie historical site.

A Stevedore is defined as, "a person whose job is to load and unload ships at a port." 1st Blue- "Colonial Blue" Is representative of the "Blue Coats" of The American Revolutionary War Red- "Colonial Red" Is representative of the "Red Coats" of The American Revolutionary War 2nd Blue- "Harbor Blue" Is representative of the Charleston Harbor. Gold- "Hunely Rust" Is representative of the H. L. Hunley (submarine) used The American Civil War
