The sign­ing day for col­lege foot­ball play­ers nation­wide is Feb. 1, where high school ath­letes can offi­cially send in their let­ters of intent to the schools they have cho­sen. New head coach Tony Annese plans to announce the Bulldogs that are join­ing the team in 2012. This day is also the first time coaches can speak on recruits. Tony Annese will be avail­able to answer ques­tions on recruits and the recruit­ing class in gen­eral. The sign­ing day fes­tiv­i­ties will kick off at 3 p.m. on the sec­ond floor of the Wheeler Parillion located at Top Taggert Field.

Tricia Principe earns con­fer­ence honors

The women’s bas­ket­ball star Tricia Principe earned the GLIAC North Division player of the week hon­ors this past week for her key work in pro­pelling the Bulldogs into first place in the divi­sion. Principe is in her senior sea­son at Ferris State as she plans on major­ing in graphic design. Principe looks to prove her con­fer­ence recog­ni­tion this week as the first-place Bulldogs take on Lake Superior State University and Saginaw Valley State University at Jim Wink arena.

Track Team trav­els to Ohio

The Ferris State University track team plans to travel to Geneva, Ohio for its next sched­uled com­pe­ti­tion this week­end for the Division II team chal­lenge, as the Bulldogs’ top run­ners plan to show what they are made of against some of the top com­pe­ti­tion in the Midwest region. After the week off of com­pe­ti­tion, the Bulldogs hope­fully can keep their fresh legs and turn that advan­tage into a strong showing.
