Football - Thu, Feb. 9, 2017

The Valley City State football team announced today the signing of seven more recruits for the 2017 season.

All seven are high school seniors who recently signed letters of intent to attend VCSU and play for the Vikings this fall. Three of the recruits are from North Dakota, three from Minnesota and one from Alaska. They join a group of 14 student-athletes who signed with Viking football earlier this year.

"Our staff continues to work hard recruiting student-athletes who fit our culture in the locker room and our culture on campus," said McCulloch. "With each new signing, it's exciting to see the 2017 class come together."
