Cal Poly Football to Announce 2013 NLI Signees Wednesday at MoTav

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Cal Poly football will announce its Class of 2013 National Letter of Intent signees on Wednesday at Mother's Tavern (MoTav), located at 725 Higuera Street in downtown San Luis Obispo.

Tim Walsh, head coach at Cal Poly for four seasons, and his assistant coaches will chat with Cal Poly fans from 4-8 p.m.

A press conference will begin at 5:30 p.m. with opening remarks by Walsh, followed by video highlights of the signees displayed on the video screens upstairs and downstairs, narrated by the position coaches. Media representatives will follow the video with questions.

The National Signing Day Party is open to the general public and Mustang fans can interact with the Cal Poly football coaching staff before and after the press conference, which is expected to last about 45 minutes.

Per NCAA rules, no prospects or family of prospects are permitted to be in attendance.

A video recording of the press conference and signee highlights will be posted on shortly following the National Signing Day Party.

Cal Poly finished 9-3 overall last fall, claiming a share of the Big Sky title in its first year in the conference, and earned its third FCS playoff berth in the last eight years, falling to eventual national runner-up Sam Houston State in the second round.

In posting its 10th winning season in the last 12 years, Cal Poly earned its fifth conference title in the last nine years, including four Great West titles in the eight-year history of the conference (2004-11). The Mustang defense improved in nearly all statistical categories over the 2011 squad, finishing No. 45 in scoring defense (86th a year ago) and No. 57 in total defense (90th in 2011).

Against Sam Houston State, Cal Poly allowed just 18 points (second-lowest total scored by the Bearkats in 2012) and 241 total yards (the Bearkats' lowest of the year).
