Winston-Salem State returns seven starters on offense and six on defense from the 2015 squad that captured the program’s 11th CIAA Championships, and third since 2011. The Rams were picked to finish at the top of the Central intercollegiate Athletic Association again in 2016.

Three WSSU players were named to the preseason All-CIAA. The team’s first-team honorees were Jac’que Polite (OL), Tim Samuels (OL) and Will Johnson (K).
