48 days to WCU Football Kickoff - #48 Brady Elms

Welcome to the twelfth annual Catamount Football  "100 days to WCU Football Kickoff Countdown" 

It's now 48 days until the kickoff of Catamount football on Saturday, September 3rd, 2022, against the Charleston Southern Buccaneers, on Buccaneer Field in Charleston, SC

To help pass those long summer days, and hopefully, get the Catamount faithful more excited about the upcoming season, and knowledgeable of the team members, we'll continue the football countdown each day until kickoff day.

Today we highlight #48, assigned to a punter:
