A native of Aliceville, Ala., and a former All-American at Union University in Tennessee, Sullivan produced 31 All-Americans, including All-American quarterbacks for five consecutive seasons, and had more than 200 of his players enter the coaching profession during his 16 years (1950-52, 1956-68) on the Scooba campus. In addition, he was the first Mississippian to serve on the NCAA’s football rules committee along with being instrumental in the establishment of the mandatory mouthpiece rule.
