Media days usually signify one thing: football season is upon us. For one day, rivalries are set aside, hand shakes are extended, and players and coaches share a mutual love for the game.
On Wednesday, July 24th, the Northeast Conference (NEC) held their fifth annual Social Media Day at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. For some players, who had never been to New Jersey, let alone an NFL stadium, this was a chance for them to take a moment and see first hand what they’ve been dreaming about probably since they were young boys in their pee-wee leagues. In true form, social media accounts for each school were alive and well for all the action.
The coaches’ voting results went public during the fifth annual #NECFB Social Media Day on July 24 at MetLife Stadium.
Duquesne, which boasted a league-high eight preseason all-NEC selections, topped the predicted order-of-finish for the 2019 campaign.
Eighteen student-athletes will appear at the fifth annual #NECFB Social Media Day, which is set for Wednesday, July 24 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.

The league’s annual preseason coaches’ poll results along with a 27-member Preseason All-NEC Team will be unveiled during the live show. Viewers will also be the first to learn of the conference’s nine featured matchups that will be carried (exclusively) by ESPN3.
You can follow the #NECFB Social Media Day festivities LIVE via NEC Front Row and ESPN3 beginning at 11:00 am ET.
