“I am so proud of this team for what they have been able to accomplish this season. It feels great to bring the ECFC championship back to Gallaudet University,” said Gallaudet coach Chuck Goldstein. “Thank you to our administration, [Athletic] department, and fans for supporting us throughout the season. We are excited to be back in the NCAA tournament and look forward to what’s ahead.”

This is Gallaudet’s second ECFC championship; they also won in 2013. “Selection Sunday” is Sunday, November 13; at 5:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on, the Bison will learn who they will play next Saturday, November 19 in the first round of the 32-team NCAA Division III playoffs.
