The Chadron State College football team has signed 40 student-athletes to its roster, and more student-athletes are expected to sign later this week after National Signing Day on Wednesday. Long, who guided the Eagles to a 9-3 record and a No. 18 ranking in the final AFCA Top 25 poll in 2012, is pleased with the recruiting class.
“Chadron State is a great place and it has always been about giving opportunities and this year is no different,” said Long, who became the first coach in CSC history to lead a team to the playoffs in his first year. “The coaching staff and I believe we signed a great group of student-athletes. Some will contribute right away and others will be developed.”
