We have a great coaching staff that work hard to keep our football team disciplined. We have not lost a conference or division game yet. We’re 3-0 in this area, and they will work to expand it this weekend against Kentucky State. Our success is based on our great support from administrators, alums, friends and we’re working hard as a team to make it. We’re one FVSU, one cause, one love, one team.”
