Who We Are
We are the Wright State University Football team. We compete at the collegiate-club level in the NCFA. We are a member of the Mid-Atlantic West Conference. Every season we compete with teams all across the country to try and get a chance at a national title.
Our football program made its debut September 12, 2009. This inaugural team had a perfect record, finishing the season 7-0, and bringing a National Championship home to Wright State University.
The momentum and winning didn't stop there for the Wolf Pack. In the fall of 2010 the team joined the NCFA, at that time becoming members of the Great Lakes Conference. Posting impressive scores and finishing the 2010 season with an 8-2 record.
In 2013, the Great Lakes Conference was continuing to invite new teams that grew the conference considerably. This resulted in dividing the division into Great Lakes-East and Great Lakes-West. Our Pack competed in the Great Lakes-East Conference for the following years until the 2017 Season.
In 2017, the NCFA announced a change to their conferences and a redraft of the conferences was announced. This change introduced several new conferences and several new teams. This change has our Wolf Pack competing in the Mid-Atlantic-West, alongside Miami University, University of Pittsburgh, and Ohio State University.
To start the 2016 season it was announced that we were ranked 9th in the nation. We started off our season going 5-0. Our fifth win coming from a nail biting finish against Miami University (OH), winning by a score of 15 to 14. This bumped up our national ranking to 5th.
Following our win, we traveled north to Michigan to play our longtime rivals, Oakland University. The game was 6-6 at halftime. Two mental mistakes allowed them to score two touchdowns late in the game, securing our first loss of the season.
With our defeat hitting the team hard, we were determined to bounce back and shutdown the explosive Ohio State University (club) offense. It was a long, hard fighting battle in the trenches. We capitalized first, putting 7 points on the board. Late in the 4th quarter Ohio State was driving the ball down the field, punching it in for touchdown with about two minutes left in the game. The Buckeyes decided to put it all on the line and go for a two-point conversion. They converted, resulting in an 8-7 loss for our Wolf Pack, and cutting our season short, and taking our chance for competing for a National Title.
2017 What's to Come:
With our roster remaining virtually identical, our players are hungry to get back to the season and work for the National Title. To add to our returning roster, we have one of the largest recruiting classes in Wright State football history. Verbal commitments as well as signing letters of intent, our recruiting class has reached 21 total players and continues to grow each day.
Our team is hungry for the future, and plans on nothing less than bringing home a National Championship to Wright State University.
Team on 3, family on 6.
