VCSU signs 24 More Student-Athletes to Letters of Intent

For Immediate Release
Valley City, North Dakota - Valley City State University Head Football Coach Dennis McCulloch announces the signing of 24 standout football players to Dakota Athletic Conference Letters of Intent. This is the second group of 2011 VCSU Football signees and includes four from North Dakota, four from Minnesota, six from Texas, five from Florida, two each from Hawaii and Maryland and one from the state of Alaska.

Coach McCulloch says 'This group of signees is an excellent complement to the young men we signed in February. Our coaching staff has done a very good job of evaluating and recruiting talented young men to VCSU. As always is the case, this class will prove itself over time in our program. The true test of any class is a couple of years down the line. Our staff is very excited to get these young men on the field in August.'
