Berry College this week announced 15 new commitments for its second season of football.

The Vikings will kick off their second season on Sept. 6 at Maryville. Berry lost to Maryville in 2013 by a 37-0 margin in the school’s first-ever game.

Of the 15 recruits, 14 are from Georgia. The 15th is from Alabama.

“Our recruiting plans have changed a little going into year number two,” Berry Head Coach Tony Kunczewski said in a statement. “We aren’t recruiting the volume we needed in year one, but the high caliber of student-athlete has not changed.

“The young men we have added so far have possessed all of the traits we are looking for here at Berry,” Kunczewski added. “They are great players on the field, outstanding students in the classroom and good citizens in the community: they fit the Berry mold.”

Berry played its inaugural season in 2013 and finished with a 1-9 record.
