UCA ADDS 19 BEARS TO FOOTBALL PROGRAM
« on: February 07, 2018, 08:12:57 pm »

ONWAY, Ark. _ Coach Nathan Brown's University of Central Arkansas football coaching staff added 19 newcomers to the UCA family on National Signing Day on Wednesday.

The newest Bears include five offensive linemen, five defensive linemen, three defensive backs and one each at wide receiver, running back, tight end, punter, long snapper and linebaker.

The 2018 class hails from five different states, with eight coming to UCA from Texas, four from Mississippi, three from both Arkansas and Florida and one from Louisiana. The class includes six mid-year enrollees who are already working with the Bears in offseason drills.

The Bears, coming off consecutive 10-victory seasons for the first time in the NCAA Division I era and consecutive FCS Playoff berths, open the 2018 season on Sept. 1 at the University of Tulsa.
