William and Mary football garners preseason national ranking by Lindy’s

wm-logoAlthough the start of the 2015 season is still nearly three months away, the William and Mary football team is already generating some excitement by earning a preseason national ranking by Lindy’s (No. 21).

W&M returns 13 starters (seven offense/six defense) from last season’s team that rose as high as 10th in the national rankings and was just one win shy of earning a NCAA Playoff bid.

Led by a quartet of all-conference senior captains – running back Mikal Abdul-Saboor, linebackerLuke Rhodes, cornerback DeAndre Houston-Carson and center Andrew Jones – W&M returns one of the Colonial Athletic Association’s most talented teams and is expected to challenge for a NCAA Playoff berth.

The Tribe will open the 2015 season at Lafayette on Sept. 5, while its exciting 11-game slate will also include home games against Stony Brook (Sept. 26 – Family Weekend), New Hampshire (Oct. 17), Hampton (Oct. 24 – Homecoming), James Madison (Oct. 31) and Towson (Nov. 14).

Season tickets are available for purchase online at TribeAthletics.com or by calling or visiting the Tribe Ticket Office in W&M Hall at 757-221-3340.

Seats are currently available in the end zone, regular sideline, section D (east side of stadium) and sections GG and CC (west side of stadium).

Seat assignments for tickets purchased at this time will be made in late July when the renewal and upgrade process has been completed for renewing season ticket holders.

The Tribe’s Family Plan, which includes two adult tickets and two youth tickets, is available for $190 – less than $10 per ticket per game. Prices for sideline seats start at $120 for adults, as well as $105 for seniors (65+), active military, W&M faculty/staff, parents of W&M students, and young alums. Youth sideline seats are $75, while end zone tickets start at $105.

In addition to enjoying all the action during the 2015 campaign, Tribe season ticket holders this fall will benefit by improving their opportunity for preferred seating when the renovated Zable Stadium opens in 2016.
