Football Welcomes 47 Student-Athletes to 2014 Recruiting Class

VIDEO WITH HEAD COACH BILL CONLEY |  2014 ROSTER  |  2014 SCHEDULE

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Fresh off its GLIAC championship season, Ohio Dominican's football team welcomes 47 student-athletes to its roster for the 2014 season.

The class features 27 defensive players (nine defensive linemen, nine linebackers and nine defensive backs), 16 offensive players (six wide receivers, four quarterbacks, three running backs, two tight ends, two offensive linemen), two specialists and two "athletes."

"This group of young men has demonstrated excellence in the classroom and on the football field," coach Bill Conley said. "Not only does the class fill our needs in terms of their specific positions, but many come from championship programs and are proven winners."

The Panthers closed the 2013 season with a 10-1 record overall, including an unblemished 9-0 GLIAC mark, and advanced to the NCAA Division II postseason for the first time in school history.

"The hard work of our coaching staff in terms of being relentless recruiters, the success of our football team in the last three years and especially in the 2013 season, and the great job by the current squad members in terms of selling Ohio Dominican University and the Panther football program to the recruits were the keys to bringing such an outstanding group of talented athletes to our campus," Conley said.
