WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – With a recruiting class that features five all-state selections and 48 members, the Lycoming College football team has reloaded for the 2017 season as it looks to step back into contention for a Middle Alantic Conference title, 10th-year head coach Mike Clark announced on Wednesday, July 19.
The Warriors welcome five all-state players from Pennsylvania and the group features the Pennsylvania Football News Lineman of the Year in Connor Rutan (South Williamsport, Pa./South Williamsport). Rutan was also a First Team Class 2A All-State selection by both PFN and the Pennsylvania Football Writers.

Parker Jones (Wellsboro, Pa./Wellsboro) was also a First Team Class 2A All-State selection from both PFN and the writers as a defensive end and Shane Kelly (Blossburg, Pa./North Penn-Mansfield) earned honorable mention honors from PFN in Class 2A on the offensive line.

In Class 3A, Ethan Newton (Middletown, Pa./Middletown) was a unanimous selection on the offensive line and defensive tackle Bryan Hudak (Jessup, Pa./Valley View) earned honorable mention honors in Class 4A from PFN.

In total, the incoming class features two quarterbacks, six running backs, one fullback, six wide receivers and nine offensive linemen. On the defensive side, the team welcomes six defensive backs, 13 linemen and five linebackers.

The Warriors finished the season 3-7 overall and 2-7 in the MAC in 2016, but featured a group that earned five all-conference honors, two Academic All-District accolades and one Academic All-American honor.

The Warriors open the 2017 season on Saturday, Sept. 2, when they travel to rival Susquehanna University for the Stagg Hat Trophy game at 1 p.m.
