BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Canisius went undefeated on the football field last season, but the overall feeling around the team is that this year's version could be even better.
Led by highly-touted running back Qadree Ollison, who has offers from Wisconsin, Penn State, and Pittsburgh, among others, the Crusaders have plenty of talent, depth, and experience.
"We knew this would be a great group of seniors," said Head Coach Rich Robbins. "It's hard to improve on 11-0, but that's the goal."
Adding to the Canisius attack this year is a trio of transfers: brothers T.J. and Terius Wheatley, and former Sweet Home star Brad Zaffram.
