MARSHFIELD, Mass. – New year, same expectations for Husson football.
The Eastern Collegiate Football Conference preseason poll was released today. The Eagles are once again perched at the top.
Husson took six of the seven first place votes, finishing six points ahead of second place SUNY Maritime. The two-time defending ECFC champions are coming off their best season in program history as the Eagles earned their first NCAA tournament win.
As one would expect, the Eagles are flying high into this season as they aim for a three-peat.
“It definitely gave all the guys that were here last year the maturity going back into the season knowing what it takes to be a playoff team and make a long drive into the playoffs so it gives us a little background of what it takes to be a playoff football team,” quarterback Cory Brandon said.
