Worcester, Mass. (March 28) — The Assumption College football team has announced its schedule for the 2013 season, which will feature a 10-game schedule and a nine-game Northeast-10 Conference slate.
Under the direction of first-year head coach Bob Chesney, the Hounds open the season at Division I Bryant University for a 1 p.m. start on September 7th. Assumption last played the Bulldogs, a former member of the Northeast-10 Conference, in 2007 as the Hounds dropped a 38-28 home final.
Assumption opens its four-game home schedule on September 20th as the Stonehill College Skyhawks visit the Multi-Sport Stadium for a 7 p.m. start. Other home games include Family Weekend vs. New Haven on October 4th at 7 p.m., followed by an October 19th matchup with Southern Connecticut for Homecoming beginning at 6 p.m. The Hounds end the home schedule with a Senior Day matchup with Merrimack College, beginning at 1 p.m. on November 2nd.
In addition to the Northeast-10 Conference foes from last season, the league welcomes back former football member LIU Post (formerly C.W. Post). The Pioneers spent the last five years as members of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC).
Assumption returns five Northeast-10 All-Conference players in 2013, including Honorable Mention All-American tight end Scott Simonson (Red Bank, N.J./Middletown South). He finished his junior season with 36 catches for 558 receiving yards and six touchdowns, including a season-high 75-yard touchdown grab in a home win over Pace.
