Huntingdon picked to finish fourth in USA South

MARYVILLE, TN (USA South) - Maryville College, under the direction of third-year Head Coach Mike Rader, was picked in the preseason coaches' poll to defend its USA South Athletic Conference football title in 2014.

Maryville received five of nine first place votes and 60 total points to place first. Following closely behind was Christopher Newport University which garnered three first place votes and 55 total points.

Just one point behind in third was defending USA South Co-Champions Methodist with the final remaining first place vote and 54 total points. In fourth place, Huntingdon College totaled 45 points while LaGrange College ranked fifth with 34 points.

Rounding out the poll were Ferrum College with 29 points, N.C. Wesleyan College with 22 points, Greensboro College with 16 points and Averett University with nine points.

The 2014 USA South football schedule kicks-off on Saturday, September 6 as all nine Conference teams begin their seasons with non-conference action.
