Links to a few preseason previews/articles about the Wildcat football

Herosports.com

DAVIDSON (2-9 IN 2017)
PIONEER FOOTBALL LEAGUE (DAVIDSON WAS 11TH IN 2017)

COACH: Scott Abell - 1st year (0-0 record)Davidson Wildcats

2017 OFFENSE: 20.0 ppg. (91st in FCS)

2017 DEFENSE: 34.2 ppg. (106th in FCS)


SUM IT UP: Abell has a challenging task to build up the Davidson program, but it's something he's been known to do at the high school and college level the last two decades. Sophomore running back Wesley Dugger is a good guy to build around after running for 1,131 yards last season. Quarterback Tyler Phelps also returns after gaining experience last season as a freshman starter. William Wicks led the team in receiving yards last year and returns. So those are three main weapons on offense that are all back. However, the defense is going to need improvement to compete in the PFL. Having the top three tacklers back suggests that's going to happen.

Football Gameplan had a PFL podcast with some nice things to say about Davidson & also covered the wildcats in team by team spotlight.

College Sports Journal

Davidson Wildcats

Location: Davidson, NC

Coach: Scott Abell (0-0)

Stadium: Richardson Stadium (Capacity: 6,000)



CSJ Projections:

10th: Pioneer League

14th: North Carolina

125th: FCS

255th: Division I

Fearless Prediction: Abell takes on the big task of building Davidson into a team that can compete for Pioneer League championships. Behind Dugger, the Abell era hopes to start with a couple PFL wins.

Last year, we were 11th in the PFL. This season, we're picked 10th. That's measurable progress!

(No Negative Nelly is allowed to point out Campbell exited the PFL.)
