Alcorn State Braves is a sports association consisting of 15 teams that belong to Alcorn State University, located in the city of Lorman, Mississippi. The sports department was founded in 1871 and is headed by Derek Horne. The teams compete in Division I of the NCAA and are members of the Southwestern Athletic Conference.
Meaning and History
The first and modern logo looks almost the same. It shows the confidence of the teams, loyalty to sports principles. The 1996 version shows a single letter “A” in a classic upper case serif font. Instead of the crossbar, it says, “Alcorn.” It goes beyond the sign and divides it into two parts.
After a redesign in 2004, the logo has a 3D effect. The effect is formed by the large letter flare and darkening on the right side of the word “Alcorn,” which is made in the capital font. As a result of the next update (2017), the color of the emblem has been enhanced: instead of beige, there is gold instead of purple – dark purple.
