Bolden to receive football award

Naval Academy Deputy Commandment Marine Col. Charles F. Bolden will receive the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame's 29th Distinguished American Award.

The award is presented to an outstanding leader who has maintained an interest in football and has made a significant contribution to improve amateur football.

A 1968 Naval Academy graduate and Marine Corps aviator, Mr. Bolden piloted four space shuttle missions as a NASA astronaut. In February, he commanded the first U.S./Russian spaceflight.

The Columbia, S.C., native quarterbacked his C. A. Johnson High School team to the South Carolina Black High School State Championship in 1963.

The foundation will honor Mr. Bolden at its 37th annual awards dinner Dec. 6 in New York City.
