from Wes Gullett, Greensboro College Sports Information Director
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Greensboro College Head Football Coach Greg Crum released the Pride’s 2017 football schedule Tuesday.
“As the 2017 season approaches, the Pride football family will be celebrating 20 years,” Head Coach Greg Crum said. “The guys are working hard in preparation for the opportunity to compete for a championship within the very tough USA south Athletic Conference. This conference is truly talented and opponents present their own unique challenges.”
“We look to have a strong nucleus of returners to couple with some tremendous new talent, who will put themselves in contention to challenge any team on our schedule. I couldn’t be more excited for the start of the season, and I am truly honored and blessed to be the head football coach for the Greensboro College Pride.”
The Pride will open their 2017 slate on Sept. 2 when they travel to take on the Builders of Newport News Apprentice before traveling to the nation’s capital to take on the Bison of Gallaudet University in week 2.
After their first two games on the road, Greensboro will open their home slate on Sept. 16 when they welcome USA South Athletic Conference newcomer, Brevard College, to Jamieson Stadium. The contest will mark the first ever meeting between the two programs.
Following the brief stay at home, the Pride will continue conference play at Maryville College after a bye week in week 4 of the season.
Greensboro will then host the Monarchs of Methodist University on Oct. 7 for homecoming before taking on North Carolina Wesleyan and LaGrange College on the road.
Over the final three weeks of the season, the Pride will host Huntingdon College and Averett University, while traveling to Ferrum College.
