The Livingstone College football team will hold a scrimmage on Saturday, August 24 at 9:00 a.m. The scrimmage will take place at Alumni Memorial Stadium on campus. It will be free and open to the public.
The Blue Bears enter the 2013 season at the number 11 spot in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA). Livingstone will kick-off their season with a home opener against the 7th pick Johnson C. Smith University, as they go head-to-head in the Commemorative Classic on September 7.
With only one All-CIAA preseason selection, linebacker Kenneth White, Jr., (Jr, Southport, NC) the Blue Bears are looking to play “alignment and assignment” football according to interim Head Coach Daryl Williams.
Coming off a 2-8 record last season, with Drew Powell being named the CIAA Offensive Rookie of the Year, Kenneth White being named to the All-CIAA first team and Tyheim Pitt being named to the All-CIAA second team, the Blue Bears will also be looking to play more fundamentally sound.
