WUSTL Football Announces Class of 2017
St. Louis, Mo., June 3, 2013 – Washington University in St. Louis head football coach Larry Kindbom will welcome 27 new faces to the football program this fall for the opening of camp on August 13.
“We are extremely excited about our incoming class. We have put together a championship class that both fills our needs and covers us across our positional board,” said Kindbom, the winningest coach in school history with a 148-92 (.617) overall record at Washington University.
The Class of 2017 features representatives from 11 different states, including 10 players from Illinois, four from Ohio, three from Tennessee, and two each from California and Missouri.
“We have speed, size, and strength coming through the door this fall. They represent 11 states, and will pursue academic areas in business, engineering, pre-med, and arts and sciences,” Kindbom added. “Most importantly, though, is that they fit with our expectations; they are champions on the field and in the classroom.”
Washington University finished the 2012 season with a 5-5 overall record and ended the season on a four-game winning streak. The Bears also won their ninth University Athletic Association (UAA) Championship with a 3-0 record.
The Bears open the 2013 season at four-time NCAA Division III national champion University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Saturday, Sept. 7, in Whitewater, Wis. View the entire schedule HERE.
