WESTWOOD, Mass. – It is with great excitement that the NEWMAC reveals the first Football Preseason Coaches' Poll as the Inaugural season looks to kick off later this week. After finishing last season at 5-5, Springfield has been tabbed as the preseason favorites receiving six first place votes.

Earning the No. 2 slot in the poll goes to Merchant Marine Academy who received two first place votes after going 5-4 in 2016. No. 3 WPI, No. 4 Norwich and No. 5 MIT follows while Catholic and Coast Guard, tied at No. 6 with Maine Maritime taking No. 8. 

The inaugural season will welcome 43 All-Conference winners from their previous leagues, three All-Region honorees and three major award winners.
