PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – There are many ways to measure whether or not you have had a successful season in college football. One example: if you are still practicing during the first week of December, things are going really well.
That’s the case at West Chester University as the 12-1 Golden Rams have advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division II Championship Tournament. They will visit Shepherd University down in West Virginia on Saturday.
“It’s fun because last week you’re practicing on Thanksgiving and we got a little snow the day before Thanksgiving, so that was kind of a neat week for us,” West Chester head coach Bill Zwaan tells KYW Newsradio. “Now we’re in the final eight, got a chance to go to the final four. It’s only the second time in the school’s history we’ve been practicing in December, so it’s exciting for everybody around here.”
