Presenting: A new D-III football program

More news about: Presentation

Presentation announced plans to field a football team in the fall of 2011. Presentation president Lorraine Hale and athletics director Rick Kline made a joint announcement at a news conference on Wednesday, April 22, saying they hope to increase the school's enrollment, which was 491 full-time undergraduates as of the most recent numbers reported to the U.S. Department of Education.

Presentation is the only Division III school in South Dakota. The school plans to hire a head football coach in January 2010, with the hiring of an assistant by fall of that year. 

Presentation is a member of the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference.

"As soon as you've got between 60 and 90 extra young people, there's a lot this college can do," Hale said, according to the Aberdeen (S.D.) American News. "We can get a decent pep band. We can be involved in more community things. We just don't have the numbers here at the moment for that."

Anna Maria and Castleton State start their football programs this fall.
