GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The 2019 football season kicked off today at GLIAC Football Media Day in Detroit. The Davenport football team was selected to finish in a tie for fifth in the conference preseason coaches poll. It will be year three under head coach Sparky McEwen and the team is expecting big things after finishing above .500 (6-5) last season. The Panthers build their success on a stout defense in 2018 that finished in the top 10 nationally. The team's offense also made big strides and will also be expected to climb upward this season.
The season opener is going to be Sept. 14 at Lake Erie College and the home opener is Sept. 28 against Lindenwood.
