Ichabods prepare for the first game of the season against Pittsburg State. Pictured in navy blue jerseys are players who have returned for this season and in white jerseys, incoming freshmen.

Ichabods get ready for their first game, a tough battle against Pittsburg State University on Aug. 31.

The Ichabods will head into the matchup with a record of 27-64 against Pittsburg State. They are not only mentally preparing but also physically preparing. Many players stayed active over the summer by going to the gym on their own time and in other ways. This helps them stay in shape over the summer months and excel when the season starts back up.

“It started obviously back when the season was over, but we are just taking one day at a time and not looking too much into the future but just getting through camp,” Kellen Simoncic, quarterback on the team and junior business major said.

The team started their preseason training camp Monday, Aug. 7 at Yager Stadium. The first game will be Aug. 31 and the first home game is Sept. 7.

Pittsburg State is ranked number one in the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association (MIAA) in preseason football rankings. Washburn is ranked number four out of the eleven teams.

Ichabods feel more than ready for their first tough battle of the season.

“We all have been training a lot so I can’t wait to have the team come together. We’ve been able to have zoom calls over the films and stuff,” Kevon Owens, defensive back and senior mass media major said.

Check out the Ichabods first game on the MIAA Network or on the radio station Classic Country 106.9.
