As the summer weather continues to heat up, it is time to think about the fall and Stetson Football.

New Hatters head coach Brian Young and his team will face a schedule this fall that includes some familiar names as well as some first-time opponents. With the start of training camp not long away, and with the 2021 season set to begin on Sept. 4, it is time for Stetson fans to show their support for the Hatters by purchasing season tickets.

During his introduction, Young, who was known for his high-energy style of attacking defense during his eight seasons as the Hatters’ defensive coordinator, said he plans to bring the same philosophy to the offensive side of the ball.

“We are going to play with a lot of energy,” Young said. “We are going to be an exciting team to watch and we are going to play a very competitive brand of football. We are DeLand’s team, and we will need everyone in DeLand to get behind these kids. One of the best ways to do that is to buy season tickets, and encourage your friends and neighbors to buy season tickets.

The Hatters will open the 2021 season with consecutive home games against Warner and Ave Maria. The game against Ave Maria, which will be played on the 20th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, will be part of Hometown Heroes Week for Stetson Athletics as we honor members of the military, police, firefighters and other first responders.

Following an off week, the Hatters will go on the road to face one of the oldest and most historic programs in the nation when they play at Princeton. That will be the first game of a home-and-home series, with the Tigers scheduled to visit DeLand during the 2023 season.

The Hatters will open the month of October with a home game against defending Pioneer Football League champion Davidson. That game, on Oct. 2, will be the annual Breast Cancer Awareness Pink Game.

League play will continue at Marist on Oct. 9 before the Hatters play host to the newest member of the PFL when the University of St. Thomas (Minnesota) makes its first trip to DeLand. The Tommies are making the jump from Division III to Division I for 2021 after not playing at all during the COVID 2020-21 season.

Stetson will go on the road for consecutive PFL games to close October with a game at Drake on Oct. 23 and at Presbyterian on Oct. 30.

Those back-to-back road games will be followed by Homecoming on the Stetson campus. A week of activities will be capped on Saturday when the Hatters host Dayton at Spec Martin Stadium.

The Hatters will play their final road game of the regular season on Nov. 13 at Morehead State before hosting San Diego on Nov. 20 in the regular season finale.
