Dating back to the 1960s (when a kid named Brad Bishop was providing guidance) Samford has enjoyed a strong reputation in intercollegiate debate. At this point in the 2009-10 season, Samford is ranked 15th in the United States. Harvard is only a couple of places behind, at 17th. At a recent Vanderbilt tournament, Logan Graminski was the top speaker and Dan Bagwell was ranked second. Ryan Galloway provides outstanding leadership for the team.
