season. Gallaudet is 1-29 against Penn St.-Berks when it joined the NEAC.

rule after five innings. Before today’s games the closes GU got to Penn
St.-Berks was a 7-6 loss in 2015 and a 9-6 extra-inning loss in 2016.

the NFL draft

How difficult is it for NCAA-III players to get drafted?

Since 2007, just seven NCAA-III players were drafted.

The most recent draftee was Hobert’s Ali Marpet, now
with Tampa Bay Bucs. Hobert faced Gallaudet in the
NCAA-III playoffs in 2014, meaning Marpet clashed
with the Gallaudet defensive line.

Each season there are always a few NCAA-III players
signed as free agents. It is not known yet, if any
of these free agents played against Gallaudet in
recent seasons.
