The Point University athletic department has officially released the Point Skyhawks 2012 football schedule. The Skyhawks will play a total of 11 regular season games, seven of which will be played on their home field. The schedule includes five NAIA schools, two NCAA D-III and two NCAA D-II opponents. The Skyhawks will begin their season with a pre-season scrimmage at home against Chattahoochee Tech on August 18.
This will be the first year the Skyhawks will be competing as a varsity sport and an official member of the National Athletic Intercollegiate Assoication (NAIA). They competed as a club program in 2011 and finished the season 2-5, highlighted by two victories at Rams Stadium. With the first game months away, the Skyhawks are already beginning to prepare for the season. Under the leadership of a new head coach, Kevin Porter, the Skyhawks have already signed numerous key acquisitions.
Spring practice for the Skyhawks will begin on March 12 as they begin laying the foundation for a successful season.
