49ers-Bulls: Ex-JCSU star can't lose

Bruce Duke knows what he will wear to Saturday’s college football game between Johnson C. Smith and the Charlotte 49ers at Richardson Stadium.

On Duke’s head will be a blue-and-gold J.C. Smith hat, emblematic of his allegiance to the Golden Bulls, for whom he was an all-CIAA running back in the 1970s and is in the school’s athletics hall of fame.

He will also don a green No. 10 49ers football jersey with the name “Duke” stitched across the back, in support of his son and 49ers sophomore receiver Austin Duke.

Bruce Duke, it will be an afternoon devoted to watching his two favorite teams.
