Kickoff is back for a 13th consecutive year, and will be published on Aug. 22. One of the big pieces is ranking all 249 teams. That's a big part of what we do, along with writing a season preview for each team that gets down to the nitty-gritty of who is truly expected to compete for playing time.
Also, look for dozens of feature stories, including key pieces of the St. Thomas and St. John's offenses who return for one final year thanks to medical redshirt seasons. Plus, we'll take a look at how defending champion Mary Hardin-Baylor will line up to defend its title, see what Mount Union will do coming off an unusual season, and talk with the new coach at John Carroll about high expectations.
Kickoff will have those items and much more, with original reporting, not just some statistical rehash. We talk to all Division III schools for the freshest information and our writers are checking all those names off their lists as you read this.
And we really need your help, not just in ordering Kickoff now, but to support D3football.com overall. This is the only coverage we charge for across all of D3sports.com, and it's crucial in keeping D3football.com operating with the high level of Division III coverage you've come to rely on.
