Cowboys Set For 2015 Season Opener

ABILENE, Texas – Hardin-Simmons' football team will open the 2015 campaign on Saturday at 1 p.m. when it hosts Southwestern at Shelton Stadium.

The Cowboys return a strong nucleus of a team that went 6-3 a year. Leading the way are nine defensive starters including the entire defensive line. The Cowboys have two other senior starters on that side of the ball that improved 18.7 points per game from 2013 to 2014.

HSU also has plenty of weapons on offense with Weston Garner back at quarterback, along with ASC player of the year Kerry Sloan at running back and dynamic threat Jessie Ramos.

"We have waited a long time to get out on the field and we are excited," said fifth-year head coach Jesse Burleson. "Expectations are high, like they always are high, and we feel we have a chance to be really good. We are ready to see someone else across the line of scrimmage."

Tickets for the game can be bought by calling (325) 670-1282 or at the gate. The game can be heard locally on 100.7 and video will be available on
