Saints Football Signs 52 Recruits


Feb. 6 was National Signing Day, and the Saints football team was able to lock up 52 incoming freshmen recruits for the upcoming 2019 season.

Of the 52, 35 of the athletes will not be leaving the state of Michigan. Sixteen athletes reside from Ohio and the remaining one is from Indiana.

This is the largest group of commits for Siena since 2014, according to the athletic department. The commits appear to be offensive minded, as 31 of the 52 were brought to bolster a powerful offense. There were 16 on the defensive side and five special teams players.

Kyle O’Brien is a sophomore on the team and plays on the offensive line for the Saints. He said, “Everyone has a role on the team, even as a freshman, whether it be playing in the game or as a scout player. Each role is every bit as important. Every player also brings a different culture to the team and can help better themselves and others both on and off the field”.

O’Brien also played against David Robinson from Rochester who is a 6 foot, 4 inch offensive linemen and said, “he seemed very talented.”

The Saints’ future appears bright after just missing playoffs with a 7-3 overall record and is looking to make a playoffs berth for the 2019 season.
