I haven't been this excited to work with a new class of recruits in a long time. I knew that last years recruiting class (my 1st at Berry) was a talented group, but I do feel that we have added a couple more in this years class compared to '15.
We graduated 10 Seniors off of our 30 man roster, and 2 were unable to return, so we will return 18 Varsity players, which is a little thin for comfort. However, we were able to bring in 20 recruits and look to return 2 Juniors from hiatus. This will bring our Fall roster to a little over 40 players (including walk-ons) where we will finally be able to ensure more competitive scrimmages within practice through additional depth and talent.
I am excited also for what the future holds, as I have already begun to move forward and recruit actively for next Fall, and we are incredibly excited about the guys that have expressed mutual interest in us.
It is an exciting time to be a Viking. Especially with the completion of our $7 Million brand new Valhalla Stadium.
Take a look at our Press Release regarding our incoming Freshmen class by clicking here. As you will see almost all of the guys were either Team Captains, Leading Scorers, or All-County/All-State...etc.
These guys are going to take our program to the next level, as is our 2016 Schedule where we will play host to Colorado College and Roanoke College, as well as, travel to Denison University and Washington College. These games in addition to our SAA conference schedule will ensure our most competitive schedule to date.
I hope to see you on campus sometime real soon.
