Francis Marion grad pushing for school to add football

FLORENCE – Francis Marion has never fielded a football team, but graduate William Brezeale hopes to make that happen.

Brezeale announced Tuesday via teleconference that he and several others are working on forming a committee to further research the issue. He hopes to host a series of town hall meetings in county seats throughout the Pee Dee between now and August to get public input. He's already created a Facebook page for the committee.

Brezeale says adding football will bring more visibility to the school.

Francis Marion leaders say they've looked into the issue in the past and determined that it's not financially possible. The school has no current plans to pursue a football program.
