Describe the qualities that your program is looking for in a potential student-athlete?

We look for high character and discipline. Someone who is competitive and committed to doing well in the classroom.


Could you give us an example of a current or former player who exceeded your expectations, highlighting the reasons that player excelled?

Drew Dosch was an undrafted high school player that came here, lowered his 60 yard dash time by 6 tenths. He committed himself to becoming a good offensive player and left here after his junior season being a 7th round draft pick. He was also a student with a cumulative 3.8 gpa.
