Coach Adam announces Football Class of 2017

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Head football coach Joe Adam is proud to announce the incoming class of 2017. The class features 50 student-athletes from all over the country including Canada.

"We are excited to add these young men to our program," said Adam. "They fit the vision of our program and meet the high academic standards that come with a Saint Anselm education."

"We were able to address a number of positions in this class, along with expanding our brand beyond the New England Area. Many thanks have to go out to our campus community and our coaches, who worked tirelessly on the trail since last July when we all came together as a coaching staff. We look forward to inserting this talented class into the culture that we have been building since the end of last season."

The Hawks are adding a student-athlete from Arizona, Maine, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Georgia, 23 from Massachusetts, five from Maryland, seven from New Hampshire, six from New Jersey, two from New York. Saint Anselm is also bringing in a student-athlete from Saskatoon, Canada.

Saint Anselm recently released its upcoming 2017 schedule which opens on August 31 at Division I FCS Wagner College.
