The magazine provides features on food, money, sports and fashion as well as profiles on celebrities and other well-known personalities with roots in the South.

"Being recognized by this magazine in this way is a great honor for Emory / Henry," said Nathan Graybeal, E/H sports information director. "This article on the greatest college football traditions is another affirmation of our football program, its success and the many loyal fans that it attracts."

The article refers to the large crowds (an average of more than 5,000) that have attended E/H football events over the past 10 years. The story also mentions the college's claim to 27 conference championships, nine bowl appearances, 11 ODAC conference championships and a win-loss record of 471-352-19.
