“One of our goals was to get a piece of our own backyard, and our recruiting philosophy is to recruit inside out, which means we need to own your local footprint,” said Ryan Kaiser, director of athletics. “With this last recruitment cycle, we worked hard to bring in some of the best and brightest local students, and we’re looking very forward to that.”

“We knew that it was critical for us to establish our footprint within an 80 mile radius of Belleville, and I feel like we’ve taken the first step into doing so,” said Head Coach Kevin Turco. “I’m proud of the relationships that we’re building with the area high school coaches and we’re looking forward to the 2019 class joining us this fall.”

The Lindenwood Belleville football program will bring in 45 new recruits for the 2018-2019 academic year.
