Keeping The Comets In Line

The Olivet College football team standing on the sidelines of the first game of the season that happened Saturday, Sept. 7. Olivet won 20-17 against Wilmington, Ohio.

When going to Olivet’s home football games, you are sure to see all those men in their red and white attire and wonder, how many are there? How do they stay organized?

Currently there are 165 student-athletes on the football roster.

“A group of men this large certainly presents logistical challenges”, said Coach Dan Musielewicz. “We have an incredible staff that is dedicated to the overall maturity, growth and success of our student-athletes in classroom, on the field, and in life.”

Handling such a big team are sure to have some struggles, but Musielewicz said there are “no struggles.”

Antonio Thomas, a junior and receiver for the Comets, has been playing football for the past two years. “I do plan on playing until I graduate” said Thomas. “My reason for being a football player was the love and passion the game of football brings. The crowds and the teammates you get to bond with makes me want to be a football player.”
