CARROLLTON, Ga. - West Georgia football is on the early radar for national consideration in 2019, as the Wolves have been recognized as a preseason top-25 team in Street & Smith’s and Lindy’s preseason publication. 

Street & Smith’s ranked West Georgia 16th in their preseason top-25 while Lindy’s ranked the Wolves at 23rd in that ranking. The Wolves return 16 starters from the team that finished the 2018 season with a 10-2 record and the fourth berth in the NCAA Division II playoffs in the past five years. 

West Georgia has been a fixture among the national rankings since the run to the NCAA Semifinals in 2014, with this year’s ranking as the fourth consecutive year with a preseason top-25 spot for the Wolves.

The 2019 season opens for West Georgia on the road at Catawba on September 7 with a noon kickoff. The home opener comes two weeks later, as the Wolves host Albany State on Family & Friends Night on September 21 at 7 p.m.
