The improvement in the Wake Forest football program in 2015 was noticeable in nearly every facet of the program. The Deacon offense and defense both improved in the NCAA statistical rankings with the defense ranking 38th in total defense.
And for a second consecutive year, the Deacons brought in a recruiting class that will fill a number of needs.
For head coach Dave Clawson, the 2016 season is already well underway. From the addition of McCreary Field House, one of the nation's top indoor practice facilities, and an expanded weight room, Clawson and the Deacons are moving full speed into 2016.
Known for his prowess in building programs, Clawson has shown dramatic improvement at every stop including a noticeable increase in Year Three. The 2016 season marks Clawson's third year with the Demon Deacons.
On December 10, 2013, Clawson became the 32nd head football coach in Wake Forest University history. The head coach at Bowling Green State University from 2009 through 2013, Clawson led the Falcons to the 2013 Mid-American Conference championship with a 47-27 win over No. 16 Northern Illinois.
