With the recruiting deadline approaching, there will be many student-athletes whom will come to realize the opportunity to continue playing football may be waning. This does not have to occur.
The Xavier University club football program is designed to serve students whom have an interest in continuing to play football after they graduate high school without sacrificing the exceptional educational opportunities provided by our prestigious university.
The Musketeers football program is a member of the National Club Football Association, and participates in the Midwest Club Football Conference which includes teams from Ohio State (main campus and Newark), Southern Illinois-Edwardsville, University of Michigan-Flint, Miami(OH), Wright State, and Marquette.Xavier University will also play NCAA D3/NAIA JV teams, on occasion. The first NCFA national championship will be held in November, 2012.
While not associated with the NCAA, all games are played under NCAA rules. NCFA rules permits teams to conduct no more than four practices per week during the season.

As the videos show, this is a competitive brand of football involving what is best described as REAL student-athletes. We have players from several states, including Ohio, Indiana, Florida, Kentucky, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
There are no scholarships, grants-in-aid, etc. directly related to the football program. However, in 2010, 100% of all Xavier University freshmen received financial aid or scholarships. The main idea of our club program is to field a strongly competitive team, while allowing for the necessary time to successfully complete students' degree programs. Xavier University ranked #1 in graduation rate, #1 in freshmen retention and #6 in best undergraduate teaching (2010 US News and World ranking of Midwest colleges and universities). (The Class of 2015 profile: 1,155 students, Middle 50% GPA = 3.21-3.87, Middle 50% SAT = 1070-1260, Middle 50% ACT = 23-28. 48% are out-of-state students.) 100% of students studying computer science, nursing, and accountancy have a job when they graduate. Xavier offers 85 majors and 54 minors.
We want to hear from the high school football player whom has the grades to attend our university, but due to his love for the game, may be considering other schools for the purpose of extending his playing career. Why not have the best of educational opportunity and still play competitive football by attending Xavier University?
Please relay this information to any players whom you believe would consider this opportunity. Provide them this link to get started:
