On the heels of a successful recruiting effort that netted 29 signees, Kennesaw State Football is looking for current KSU students who want to play football.

Tryouts will be held March 22 at the Perch in the KSU Sports and Recreation Park, according to KSU Head Football Coach Brian Bohannon.

"This is a monumental day for Kennesaw State University," Bohannon said about last week's National Signing Day. "This is another huge step in the process of building the football program and brings us one step closer to getting out onto the field and preparing for that first game in 2015.

"We are extremely excited about the group of players who have signed and made the commitment to become the foundation of the program and make history," Bohannon added. "We accomplished a lot with this class and are looking forward to getting them on campus and start working with them."

KSU students who are enrolled in 12 hours of coursework for the spring semester and who meet NCAA and KSU eligibility requirements and will be allowed to try out.

The Owls’ first home football game will be on Sept. 12, 2015 against Edward Waters College.
