BEARS ADD 23 TO UCA FOOTBALL FAMILY CONWAY, Ark. _ University of Central Arkansas head football coach Clint Conque and his coaching staff announced the addition of 23 new Bears on Wednesday, the first day of the official national signing period. UCA, coming off a 9-3 season that saw the Bears reach the second round of the NCAA Division I Playoffs for the second straight year, added three mid-year transfers and 20 freshman to the program on Wednesday. The list of newcomers for the 2012 Southland Conference champions breaks down as follows: six offensive linemen; four defensive backs; four wide receivers; three defensive tackles; two running backs; one punter, one quarterback, one defensive end and one athlete. There are seven signees from Texas, four each from Louisiana and Mississippi, three from both Arkansas and Tennessee and one each from Alabama and Missouri. “We are extremely pleased with the extensive work that our coaches put forth in this process,’ said Conque, the winningest coach in UCA history with 98 victories. “Today we announce an extremely talented class that meets the immediate and future needs and championship expectations within our program.’ UCA opens the 2013 season on Thursday, Aug. 29 against Incarnate Word at First Security Field at Estes Stadium.
