PFL contest.

Presbyterian finished the fall 2021 season 2-9 overall, with an 0-8 mark in the Pioneer League. The Blue Hose are entering their first season under new head coach Steve Englehart, who spent the past seven seasons at Florida Tech.

“I am very excited for our team’s second full season in the PFL,” said Engelhart. “Every team in this league has the talent and coaching to win the PFL. We start the season with a tough 3 game non-conference schedule. Going to Austin Peay our first game of the season will be extremely challenging. Like everyone in this conference, we have quite a bit of travel. However, we do not have two road games in a row the entire season. I think this will be very beneficial for the rest and quality of life for our team.”

Glad to see the Blue Hose have a real head coach this year instead of the ego driven clueless coach they had last year.
What an absolute joke watching Presbyterian play last season. Just couldn’t help sorry for those kids.

I will be attending the game at western Carolina. It’s been years since I saw Presbyterian play at wake forest in Winston Salem. They ran a trick play that made ESPN top ten. Made even more notable at Friday walk through wake forest was having a function for their team and staff and had deliberately blocked the view of Presbyterian practicing the play. So the surprise worked thanks in part to integrity on wfu part.
