CFB: Augustana Adds 27 on Signing Day

SIOUX FALLS – Augustana head football coach Jerry Olszewski announced the addition of 27 student-athletes to the incoming class on National Signing Day 2018, all of whom signed national letters of intent, indicating their plans to enroll at Augustana and compete for the Vikings football team.

“First, I want to officially welcome all the commits and their families to the Augustana University Football family. Our staff did a tremendous job attracting the Best and Brightest to AU from around the country, with 10 different states represented in this signing class,” Olszewski said. “Im also incredibly proud of the job we did in our own city, state and region, as many of the best players in South Dakota and our region are staying home to build on the tradition of Viking Football. Lastly, we addressed the needs at every position with great balance of 13 offense/13 defense and one athlete that can play on both sides of the ball. We raised our athleticism, depth and football talent within our team in this 2018 signing class. Big things coming from this group for years to come. Fight On!”

Augustana football fans can join coach Olszewski and his staff on Wednesday afternoon at Shenanigan’s Bar and Grill at 1903 S. Ellis Road in Sioux Falls from 4-7 p.m. to learn more about the incoming class of Vikings.
