Huskies Football CIS Team Preview

Huskies Football CIS Team Preview

2015 regular season record: 0-8

2015 regular season standings: last in AUS

2015 playoff record: NA

2015 playoff finish: NA

General Write-Up: 

A strong recruiting year in 2016 for the Saint Mary's will lead to strong competition for starting positions on this year's edition of the Huskies.  Newcomers at the skill positions on offence and at least nine returning players on both sides of the line of scrimmage will help move the team to a more competitive level in the AUS this fall. 

Quote from head coach: James Colzie III 

As a team and coaching staff we've had a lot of work to do.  I would say we're a very average team right now and we will find out in early against Acadia and Mount Allison 

how good we will or can be.
