Northwestern logo

Orange City, Iowa — Northwestern College and head football coach Matt McCarty announced the addition of 31 recruits to the Red Raider program on Wednesday, Feb. 1. The list includes seven athletes that won state titles this past fall at Boyden Hull/Rock Valley (2A) or Western Christian (1A).

“We are extremely excited about the talent and competitiveness of this initial group,” commented McCarty. “We have a group of players who know what it takes to win championships and understand what it means to pursue excellence in all that they do. We will continue to add key players to the 2017 class in the coming weeks as we build a class of 40-45 athletes for the fall.”

Quarterback is a position group that will see an influx of talent for the Red Raiders. McCarty indicated this was a key goal in this class. “We feel we have strong incoming talent to push our current quarterbacks, and more importantly, a group of young men who know how to lead their teammates and win football games.”

The recruiting class also has a strong focus on talent from the area, something that McCarty sees as crucial for future success. “Our staff values the quality coaching found at area high schools and we feel that local recruits will always be the foundation for our teams.” In addition to local athletes, the Red Raiders have signed recruits from Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Florida, Texas, California and Washington.

Below is the full list of Northwest Iowa recruits that have signed to play football at Northwestern College.
