Football 101 To Kick Off Eagles’ Opening Week

Two nights before Ashland University's football team begins the 2016 season, Eagle fans will have the opportunity to interact with players and coaches at Football 101 on Aug. 30 at 7:30 p.m. at Jack Miller Stadium/Martinelli Field.

Football 101 will be an interactive way for fans to learn what it takes to be an Eagle. Some of the highlights will include a "meet and greet" with players and coaches, live drills on the stadium field, exclusive giveaways and free pizza provided by Donna D's Pizza.

Ashland, ranked No. 3 in the Lindy's Sports Division II Top 25 preseason poll and No. 8 in the Sporting News Division II Preseason Top 25 poll, will begin 2016 with a home game on Sept. 1 at 6 p.m. against Mercyhurst.
