The Shippensburg University football team was voted fourth in the 2022 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Eastern Division Preseason Coaches’ Poll released Thursday afternoon by the conference office.

Preseason Coaches’ Poll

The preseason coaches’ poll is selected by the league’s coaches and was announced through the league’s social media channels. The conference does not allow coaches to vote for their own team in the preseason polls.

Raiders Season

Shippensburg is coming off a 9-2 season in which it posted its best record since 2017. It was the seventh time in school history that the Raiders won nine or more games in a season. SU finished the season ranked No. 8 in the Super Region One rankings and its only two losses came at the hands of the region’s Top 2 teams.

Players are scheduled to report for preseason camp on Sunday, August 7. The team will be holding a Fan Appreciation event at noon on Saturday, August 20 at SU Student Association Field at Seth Grove Stadium at which fans will have the opportunity to interact with players and coaches.
