Ferrum College Joins ODAC

FERRUM, Va. – Ferrum College is leaving the USA South Conference at the end of the upcoming school year.

The Panthers will be joining the Old Dominion Athletic Conference as the 15th member of the league.

"This has been a long-term goal of ours ever since we turned division three in '85," says Director of Athletics Abe Naff.  "The Old Dominion Athletic Conference is where we've always wanted to be. We had a great situation with the USA South."

"It's a great fit for us in regards to competition and in the region," says head football coach Rob Grande. 

Other schools in the ODAC include Roanoke College, Hampden-Sydney, Lynchburg and Washington and Lee.
