Spartan Football Announces 2013 Recruiting Class

More news about: Case Western Reserve

CLEVELAND – Case Western Reserve University Head Football Coach Greg Debeljak has announced the Spartan recruiting class of 2013. The class includes 29 players from nine different states around the nation.

"The coaching staff is very excited with the incoming class both athletically and academically," said Debeljak, who enters his 10th season in 2013. "We feel we have added depth to certain positions where we were in desperate need of numbers and talent. A number of our incoming freshmen will be able to compete for playing time right away, especially on defense where we have graduated a number of talented players."

The Spartans open the 2013 season at home versus Marietta College under the lights of Case Field at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 7. Overall, the team's historic schedule of 2013 includes trips to five states and three time zones with roughly 6,800 miles of road covered. View the entire schedule HERE.  

The Spartans (6-4 in 2012) have amassed a record of 54-10 with four UAA Championships (2007-09, '11) and three NCAA Playoff berths (2007-09) over the past six seasons.
