Dayton Flyers Football signings update



DAYTON – After 38 wins in the last five seasons, the University of Dayton Flyer football program is bringing in another strong recruiting class according to head coach Rick Chamberlin.

While NCAA regulations and University policies preclude the release of the individuals who have committed at this time, Chamberlin sees them carrying on the Dayton tradition of success on the field and in the classroom.  The entire class will be released at a later date.

“I’m very proud to say the quality of the young men who are joining our program is as good as ever,” Chamberlin said.  ”It’s likely that we will add a few young men to this class, but all of our incoming freshmen are quality students, quality athletes and quality leaders.

“It’s a typical Dayton football recruiting class, in terms of their accomplishments in the classroom and on the football field.  They bring high academic standards to our program.  Six of our recruits on offense are offensive lineman.  That was a priority for us this year and we are very pleased with their talent and their size.  On the other side of the ball, we’re very happy with three defensive tackles we are bringing in.  They have the athleticism, size and ability to run that everyone is looking for.

“We are also excited about where this year’s recruits are coming from.  We continue to recruit nationally, and have added the second and third recruits we have ever had from North Carolina.  But we also have 14 players from Ohio, and three from the Dayton area.  We feel that says a lot about your program when the young men and families who have the opportunity to know the most about our football program choose to join us.

“The character and commitment of this class has served them well in their high school careers, and I expect them to be a very successful group here at the University of Dayton.”

Among the highlights for the Flyer Football Class of 2022 are:
• 3.65 average high school GPA
• 25 average score on the ACT
• 16 team captains
• 13 National Honor Society members
• 2 members of state championship teams
• 18 offensive players
• 11 defensive players

The members of the Class of 2023 hail from six states:  Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Ohio.

In addition, Chamberlin announced the following seniors have indicated they will return in the fall for their fifth season in the Flyer football program:  quarterback Will Bobek, defensive tackle Matthew Brandeis, center Tim Roell and tight end Adam Trautman.

Bobek has played in seven games as a backup QB in his career, and scored a TD against Morehead State last year.  Brandeis was injured much of 2018, and is a three-time member of the Pioneer Football league Academic Honor Roll.  Roell is a two-year starter at center.  Trautman is a two-time All-PFL player.  He had 41 receptions (14.7 yards per catch avg.) with nine TD’s.
