MOREHEAD - The Morehead State University football program has added 11 student-athletes on defense and one on special teams for the 2013 season. The list includes five linemen, two cornerbacks, two safeties, two linebackers and a kicker.
“We are very excited about all of the student-athletes in our 2013 recruiting class,” said Rob Tenyer, who begins his first season as head coach after 12 years as an MSU assistant. “We’ve had several discussions about improving our defense, and we feel like this group can help us do that.”
Morehead State will open its 12-game schedule on Aug. 29 when Pikeville visits Jayne Stadium at 7 p.m. The Eagles will also host Ohio Valley Conference foe Eastern Kentucky, Davidson, Dayton, San Diego, Butler and Charlotte during the upcoming campaign.
“These young men have certainly accomplished a lot in their high school careers,” Tenyer said. “This is a new chapter for all of them and it should be an exciting one. We are happy these individuals chose Morehead State for their college education and a quality football experience.”
