Georgetown College football will hit the ground running for the 2013 season. The Tigers, who posted their second straight undefeated regular season in 2012, will kick it off at home against Ohio Dominican. The Thursday night under the lights game is set to start at 7 pm Sept. 5.
"We are very excited about this opening game," said GC coach Bill Cronin. "Ohio Dominican is an NCAA Division II school that went 7-3 this past season. It will be a test right out of the gates for us and we will get to see how we match up.
"The Panthers are a young team that will return a lot of their talent. They have a strong quarterback and a great coach in Bill Conley."
Conley is a former assistant at Ohio State University where he retired in 2004. However, he came out of his scouting role to take over the reins at ODU in 2010. He is 16-15 in three seasons, but is 14-7 in the past two.
Georgetown College football coach Bill Cronin has not achieved 155 wins in 16 seasons resting on his laurels. The Tiger program has become on the of the premier football teams through hard work and dedication, which begins with recruiting.
"I'm extremely pleased with the signing class we have for 2013," Cronin said. "The staff I've put together bust their tails, makes sacrifices to ensure we have top level players every year. This year is no different."
GC signed 35 thus far with a few more on the horizon.
