ECC coaches

Ellsworth Community College Athletic Director Nate Forsyth (middle) holds a meeting with his coaching staff on a previous date. Due to the NJCAA banning on and off campus recruiting starting in early March, schools like ECC have had to get creative in ways they reach out to potential student-athletes.

The spring is usually full of college tours with prospective student-athletes visiting campuses across the country.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak the NJCAA banned all on or off campus recruiting through May 15. Recently, that ban was been lifted with individual institutions implementing their own restrictions. Ellsworth Community College will remain closed until June 1 – however, if there is someone they would like to visit the campus they could get administrations approval.

ECC football

One way the Panther football team has stayed together is through Zoom workouts. Head coach Mitchell Kleinschrodt (top, middle) and strength and conditioning coach Quintin Taylor (top, left) lead the ECC squad in different exercises and stretches several times a week.
