Huntingdon College football players to report on Wednesday

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – The Huntingdon College football program is expecting its largest turnout yet when players report on Wednesday.

Huntingdon athletic director Buzz Phillips said the Hawks are expecting around 160 players to report.

“This marks the beginning of a new year for us and it is always an exciting day for us,” Phillips said. “It’s going to be a busy day for the football team. There will be a series of meetings, we’ll take care of the physicals and paperwork and the team will get to work on Thursday.”  

The incoming group, which is expected to include around 90 newcomers, will be the first to experience the football field’s new Sportexe turf. The three-month long project was completed this week. The Hawks’ new turf will be ready for the first practice on Thursday.

“This year we have something new to welcome the players with,” Phillips said. “I know the football players, coaches and fans are looking forward to the new field.”

The Hawks’ first practice is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on Thursday. Practices are open to the public.

Huntingdon’s first game is Sept. 3 at Maryville College (Tenn.) The Hawks’ first home game at Samford Stadium will be Sept. 17 against Faulkner University.

The remainder of Huntingdon’s fall sports will report on Sunday with volleyball, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s cross country and cheerleading.
