Countdown to Football: 95 days - #95 Bevans Robbs

It's now 95 days until kickoff of Catamount football at Western Carolina's E.J. Whitmire Stadium.

The Catamounts open the season on Thursday, August 30, 2012 against Mars Hill College.  To help pass those long summer days until football season starts, and hopefully get the Catamount faithful more excited about the upcoming season, we'll continue the 100 day football countdown.

Today, we'll continue with the Defensive Line.
