Baker picked to finish fifth in HAAC
The Baker University Wildcats have been picked to finish fifth in the Heart of America Athletic Conference by NAIA Preview magazine, with credit given to the hire of Mike Grossner as head coach.
"Baker wants a winner again and Grossner will be the guy to do it," NAIA Preview editor Jason Dannelly said. "It's very hard to see what a coach can do in his first year at a program, but I feel very confident in what Grossner can do."
Grossner said it was a fair assessment of his team.
"With our previous season's record and lack of game experience on defense, we have some big question marks," Grossner said. "We also bring the element of surprise to the table, which can make the season interesting."
NAIA Preview is published July through December and contains in-depth information on NAIA football. It is owned by Dannelly Media, which also owns and operates NAIAFOOTBALL.NET.
