McPherson College football coach Paul Mierkiewicz was keeping an eye on the fax machine today.

It was whirling.

Mierkiewicz, in his first full recruiting season as he prepares for his second Bulldog campaign, has announced his first list of signees with many more to come.

Players from Texas, Missouri, Georgia, Colorado, Mississippi, South Dakota and Kansas dot the list.

“I’m extremely pleased with the start of the 2016-17 recruiting class for Bulldog football,” Mierkiewicz said. “Though there is a lot of work to be done yet, I’m impressed with the work our staff has done to bring in not only quality character kids, but also individuals that will excel both in the classroom and on the football field.”

One of the signees, defensive back Ashton Serpas, actually played here two years and ago and has returned. He was a standout on a Mac defense that was one of the KCAC’s best in 2014, including a staunch effort in an upset of Tabor.

The spring season is currently under way for Bulldog football as they are preparing for 2016.
