Baker Football Announces 2018 Signing Day Class

 

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – Entering his 15th season as Baker University head football coach, Mike Grossner and his coaching staff is excited to announce the signing of 47 new players as part of their 2018 Class on National Signing Day.

 

The new class hails from nine different states and will join and Wildcat squad coming off of its third-straight Heart of America Athletic Conference Championship and fifth appearance in the NAIA-FCS Playoffs in the last six years.

 

Baker has eight or more wins in six-straight seasons and is second all-time in wins in the history of NAIA football.

 

In the last two seasons, Baker has featured eight NAIA All-Americans, the NAIA National Player of the Year and the NAIA’s all-time leading scorer.

 

“We appreciate all that were involved in assembling this great recruiting class!” said coach Grossner. “Our coaching staff, student-athletes, admissions staff, faculty, tour guides and all others were instrumental in the recruiting process. This is an impressive group of young men that have accomplished great things on and off the field of play early in their careers. We had a few needs in some areas and feel this crew will help us to a championship! A few more student-athletes will follow in the upcoming weeks, but the core is on board! Go Cats!”
