MOREHEAD - The Morehead State University football program has added 20 student-athletes on offense for the 2014 season. The list includes eight receivers, five linemen, three tight ends, two running backs and two quarterbacks.
“Our coaching staff worked hard putting together this 2014 recruiting class,” Morehead State Head Coach Rob Tenyer said. “I’m excited about this year’s group because we’ve attracted many high-character individuals who are quality football players.”
