UMHB football team to report on Wednesday

Belton, Texas – The 2016 version of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football team will begin to take shape when the team reports to camp on Wednesday, August 10th. Student-athletes will spend that first day in physicals and meetings. The first practice of the 2016 fall camp will be held on Thursday, August 11th. Newcomers will hit the practice field at 7:45 AM before the returners open practice at 9:30 AM. The team will also run through split practices on Friday and Saturday morning before the full team practices together for the first time on Sunday, August 14th. The practice time will move to 5:30 PM for that full-team work out on Sunday. The first workout in full pads will be Monday, August 15th at 8:10 AM. All of those practices will be held at the UMHB football practice fields at the Cru Sports Plex. The current reporting list includes 198 student-athletes. Not all of those players will report on Wednesday, however. A group of newcomers and returners will not report until classes begin on Monday, August 22nd.

The Cru returns seven offensive starters and eight defensive starters from a team that went 11-2 overall, including a 4-1 mark in ASC play last season. UMHB advanced to the Quarterfinals of the NCAA Division III National Championships before falling to Linfield College. The Cru has now won at least one postseason game in 12 straight seasons. UMHB will open the 2016 season with a 6:00 PM home game against Ohio Wesleyan University in Delaware, Ohio September 3rd.
