DAYTON – The University of Dayton football team is finishing up the 2024 spring season under coach Trevor Andrews, with the Flyers’ spring game coming up on Sunday, April 14.  Start time for the game will be 3 p.m. ET.

Sunday’s game will be played at the Jerry Von Mohr Practice Facility.  Due to limited seating at JVM, fans are encouraged to bring their own seating.  Returning players and their families will be located at the east end of the field, while members of UD’s 2024 recruiting class and their families will be located at the west end.  Other fans at the game can sit in the north grandstand, or in their own chairs on either side of the offensive team bench area on the north track.

The winning team will be determined  at a later date when film evaluation is concluded.  Immediately after Sunday’s spring game, the 2024 team captains will be announced.

Admission to the spring game is free.

UD returns 75 players from last season, Andrews’ first as the Flyer head coach.  Among them are nine players who earned All-Pioneer Football League accolades last fall.  Center Dylan DeMaison was First Team All-PFL, while wide receiver Jake Coleman, safety Ca’ron Coleman (who also the team MVP), cornerback Cam Cope, offensive tackle Ryan Iiams, tight end Alec Keathley, linebacker Aiden McKinley, defensive tackle Jack Wardzala and wide receiver Gavin Lochow were named Honorable Mention.  Lochow was honored as both a wide receiver and kick returner.  He was also named a Freshman All-American in the All-Purpose Runner category by FCS Central.

Dayton was 4-7 in Andrews’s first season, closing out the year with a 35-6 win at home over Marist and a 45-14 win at Davidson.   The Flyers return 17 starters (nine offense, eight defense).
