On Friday, Aug. 4, the Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) coaching staff will be welcoming into camp 100 players that were chosen to repeat for the third time, to earn the CIAA Crown.

This is the seventh straight time the WSSU Rams have been chosen to take the CIAA Title.

For the third consecutive season, the Rams of Winston-Salem State University have been selected to win the CIAA Title. The defending CIAA Champion Rams finished 9-3 last season and 7-0 in the CIAA Southern Division.

Winston-Salem State University will return eight starters on both sides of the ball, making the Rams one of the most experienced teams on the gridiron in 2017.

The first few days on campus, the team will go through meetings with key Athletic Department Personnel, and go through concussion testing as well as receiving equipment and getting physicals.

The Rams will hit the field for the first practice on Monday morning at 9:30 a.m. at Civitan Park. WSSU opens the 2017 season on Aug. 31st at Grace P. Johnson Stadium, on the campus of UNC Pembroke.

Meet the Rams

On Saturday, Aug. 19, from 1:30-3 p.m. at KR Williams Auditorium, WSSU will hold its annual Meet the Rams event, recognizing 2017 fall athletic teams, student-athletes and coaches. Fans can expect performances by the Red Sea of Sound, dance routines, giveaways, and the first look at our fierce new Ram logo.  The teams that will be represented at this event are: volleyball, men’s cross country, women’s cross country and football.
