Hornet Football Expects Promising 2015-2016 Season

by: Michael Brooks

As the dust settles the Hornets’ football team gets ready to rise from the ashes, ready to battle against the MEAC division. After a 2-10 season in 2014- 2015, a lot of elements have changed within the football team.

There is a new coaching staff, new system, new players, but the same Delaware State University. With all of the new changes, this season feels brand new. The players have strayed from their normal pattern of just thinking they can win the MEAC, to actually putting in the work needed to make it ther reality.

Senior wide receiver Morris Frasier said, “I feel like with the new coach coming in, it’s been a lot of improvements and we’re on the right road to winning a championship.”20150905_5539DDP

It all starts with Head Coach Kenny Carter. Carter and his staff have brought a new “All or Nothing,” mentality to the team. Coach Carter has brought a new level of structure and individual player accountability that truly stand out above most. With a track record of working for schools like Penn State, Vanderbilt, University of Florida, Louisville, and Youngstown State University, Coach Carter is just what the doctor order to get the team in championship form.

From the 6 am practice to the evening film sessions, this team is getting ready to face anything. “They are pushing me and they’re helping us reach our potential.” said Freshmen Running Back Kesselly Tyler. Hopefully the Hornets’ hype is well deserved. The Hornets played on Saturday September 5th against Liberty University.

Hopefully the swarm is something to fear this year!
