Indiana State Football signs 29 players


Indiana State head football coach Mike Sanford announced that 29 student-athletes have signed a National Letter Of Intent and will join the Sycamore football program in time for the 2014 campaign.

“This is a great day for the Sycamore football program,” Sanford said. “The Sycamore football coaching staff did a tremendous job in finding outstanding talent across the country and selling our program. We addressed our needs and were able to recruit young men who will be both great athletes and excellent students. We look forward to blending today’s signees with our returning players to help take Indiana State to the next level of success. Our work is not done as we will continue to focus on offseason conditioning, spring practice and our coaches will still be out on the recruiting trail looking for more future Sycamores.”
