On August 31, Houston Baptist University will kick off their first game of the season and their first game as a team. Houston Baptist is very excited to add football to their athletics program this year. Their first official season will kick off at home in Huskies Stadium on September 6, 2014, but the Huskies will play four home games (in various locations) and three away during this developmental season. HBU hired their first head football coach, Vic Shealy, in April of 2012. Former quarterback at Liberty University, former coach of NAIA National Championship team at Azusa Pacific, and son of and former staff member for football coach Dal Shealy, Coach Vic Shealy is well-prepared to develop a team from the ground up.
In 2014, the Huskies will join the Southland Conference, making them eligible for the Southland Championship and the NCAA Division I FCS Playoffs. This year, they’ll compete against an assortment of D1, D2, and NAIA schools. HBU recently moved to Division I from NAIA in 2007 and is looking forward to moving from the Great West Conference into the Southland.
The Huskies are excited to be using Tempest FX in their inaugural football season. Trusted by more than 95% of all D1 teams, CoachComm products are designed to address the issues that most concern coaches about their game day communications. Based on CoachComm’s reputation of Winning Solutions for D1 teams, Houston Baptist felt confident that Tempest FX was the right choice for their staff, offering the flexible and expandable solution just right for their program.
