GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Furman head football coach Bruce Fowler has announced the addition of two players to the Paladins' 2015 recruiting class -- defensive end Alec Hanff and punter/placekicker Joey Gogol.

Hanff and Gogol have signed National Letters of Intent and will join the freshman class this fall. Their addition gives the Paladins 16 signees for 2015.

Hanff, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound product of Charlotte Latin (N.C.) High School, racked up 74 tackles and 19 sacks as a senior, earning all-conference, All-Charlotte Observer, and first team all-state honors on a 10-2, state runner-up team.  For his career he tallied 181 tackles and 37 sacks and was a two-time all-state honoree.

He played three seasons of baseball before joining Charlotte Latin's state power lacrosse program as a senior.

Gogol was a three-year starter at Marist (Ga.) School, where he converted 31 of 42 field goal attempts,including a career long 53-yarder, and was a two-time all-state selection.  As a senior he booted a school record 16 field goals in 20 attempts, was credited with 52 touchbacks on kickoffs, and averaged 35.1 yards on 21 punts on the way to reaping first team all-metro and all-state accolades.

He garnered MVP honors after kicking the game winning field goal in Marist's 17-14 victory over Godby (Fla.) High School in last fall's Georgia-Florida Border War game and was recognized by both Chris Sailer Kicking and Kohl's Kicking as an All-American.
