Belhaven University, known in some circles as “a second chance school” for some good NCAA Division 1 players who need a second chance for various reasons, comes out of the first NAIA Football Poll swinging. Belhaven is the highest ranked team of their division, though four other teams from the Eastern Division (and their opponents this year) are also ranked, three of which are in the top nine team. Belhaven is ranked at #21 nationally and is picked to win its division. The Blazers opened up at home in Jackson, Mississippi with a 36 to 26 win over Texas College on August 31st. Here’s a look at the NAIA National Coaches’ Poll.
Robert Trotter, though still a Redshirt Freshman, saw some action in the game. He hopes to see more action as the season progresses.
