Southeastern program rising
HAMMOND - Head coach Ron Roberts has brought Lions football to the 'promised land' of FCS football by clinching an automatic FCS Playoffs bid with a 13-point win Saturday over Sam Houston State.
In only two years at Southeastern, Roberts has turned a 3-8 team into conference champions.
Currently on an eight game winning streak, the Lions now take on Nicholls State in their season finale before heading to the playoffs.
