GSC Ready to Tackle the Competition in Mountain East Conference

GLENVILLE -

Glenville State will hold its Spring Football Game on Thursday night.

The Pioneers are coming off a season of which the program is certainly accustomed to. Glenville finished 2012 with a 6-5 overall record. However they went 6-2 in conference play.

Glenville said goodbye to top notch defensive end James Washington, as well as NFL-calibur Offensive Lineman Mark Jackson.

Sophomore tailback Rahmann Lee returns for what should be a monster season. After all, he did win the National Freshman of the Year in Division II College Football last year.

Players and coaches said they are ready to hit the field.

"I had a good season last year, but it really wasn't nothing knowing that we didn't win conference and everything. I'm kind of a team player, so I know we have a lot of talent coming back and I believe we'll have an excellent season this year," Pioneers sophomore tailback Rahmann Lee said.

"We went back in the off season and looked at last year. We weren't able to finish a few games. Finishing 6-5, there were multiple times we were in it right until the end, but didn't win. So we've done a lot of extra emphasis and extra effort on finishing drills and doing our fourth quarter and finish drill after everything this whole off season," Glenville State Head Football Coach David Hutchison said.
