38 New Faces to Join 2012 Football Squad

HAMPDEN-SYDNEY, VA-Hampden-Sydney head football coach Marty Favret has released the list of 38 newcomers set to report for the 2012 season. The new faces will join the long list of veterans set to defend the 2011 ODAC Championship and hoist the school's eighth ODAC banner. In order to comply with NCAA rules, the list of recruits includes only those student-athletes who have made deposits on tuition and are set to report in August for football camp and classes. The list includes players from five states including Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, and Virginia.

"We're thrilled about the football class of 2016," said Favret. "We feel we've improved ourselves on both sides of the ball with some size and a host of playmakers. Though we have an experienced group returning this fall, I'd be surprised if some of these freshmen don't contribute immediately."

The Tigers are coming off of an 8-3 ODAC Championship season. Favret and crew managed a 5-1 conference record and fell 51-41 to Centre College in the first round of the postseason. Hampden-Sydney returns 15 starters (six offense/nine defense).
