CGTC Announces Inaugural NJCAA Division-I Football Schedule

March 27, 2024

Warner Robins, GA – Springtime just arrived, but it is never too early to get excited about fall football, and that is the feeling at Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) as it announces the release of its inaugural NJCAA Division I schedule. 

The 2024-2025 football schedule includes ten games, eight home games, and two away games.   

At home on Atrium Health Field in the Roy H. Sonny Watson Wellness Complex in Warner Robins, the Titans will face the Hardeeville Vikings (August 31), Gordan State College, Clayton State University, Andrew College, Community Christian College, River City Prep, McDougle Technical Institute, and finish the regular season with the Georgia Warhawks (November 9).  

On the road, the team will travel to Georgia Military College on September 14 and Jacksonville Athletic Academy on October 19.  

Head Coach Kato Hitson said he looks forward to the upcoming season for many reasons but believes the newness of the NJCAA Division-1 status alone will energize his players to compete and fans to support. 

Several members of the team are also coming off a National Club Football Association championship run in 2023, a source of momentum they plan to build from this season. 

“We look forward to showcasing our talent and competitiveness at this new level, both for our home crowd primarily, but also across the state,” Hitson said. “The non-conference and conference opponents give us opportunities to battle for our name and our brand in central Georgia.”  

Hitson hopes fans will mark the homecoming game on October 26 as priority. The Titans will face River City Prep at 1 pm, and he expects the community to pack out Atrium Health Field. 

 “I believe this homecoming game will mean a lot to our team, especially our players,” he said. “But I am looking forward to our school the students, team members, faculty, and coaching staff getting to enjoy the week and all it will hold.”  

With 160 days till kickoff on August 31, these players are ready to be out on Atrium Health Field. Getting to this point has been a journey for the Titan Football team, recruiting and signing athletes who show academic and athletic prowess. 

Local talent from 8 counties in the College’s service area will join the team this fall. 

Hitson said he tried to focus on our local talent to get them to see CGTC as a school that holds an opportunity to play football, get their experience, and move on to a possible four-year program and move on to the next level. 

Seeing the opportunity also helps when it comes to local support for the program.  

The CGTC Foundation has opened sponsorship opportunities for athletics programs. Each level of sponsorship will highlight individual or business commitment to academic and athletic success, as well as foster brand awareness amongst our Titans fans.
