UIS is not one of GLVC schools to add football

The Great Lakes Valley Conference is expanding its sports program by adding football with the inaugural season slated for 2012.

The University of Illinois Springfield Prairie Stars, who are new to the GLVC and NCAA Division II, will not be among the league’s football-playing schools, however. UIS is “absolutely not” starting a football program, according to athletic director Rodger Jehlicka.

The story was published in the January 20, 2010, State Journal-Register.
