JSU Football Media Day
On the eve of fall camp, the Jacksonville State football team welcomed the media to campus. The Gamecocks are gearing up for a promising 2015 season. Head coach John Grass entering his second season at the helm after a successful first year. The Gamecocks won the OVC title with a 10-2 overall record. But it's the playoff loss to Sam Houston State at the end of the year that has served as motivation for this team to work hard this summer.
The excitement for this season is paired with lofty expectations for the Gamecocks. JSU ranks in the top ten of every major preseason FCS poll. Twelve players are on the preseason All-Conference team and defensive tackle Devaunte Sigler and cornerback Jermaine Hough are on the National Defensive Player of the Year Watch List.
The Gamecocks open fall camp on Friday and their first game is set for September 5th at Chattanooga.
