We had a great win last week! FAMU is a great program with a rich tradition and history. The victory brings the team one step closer to our ultimate goal. It was very encouraging to see the Bison perform with high intensity. Defensively, the performance was remarkable. Keith Pough displayed amazing determination and gave FAMU problems all day. The defensive line were the unsung heroes! They applied constant pressure on the quarterback and was very instrumental in stopping FAMU’s run game. Special teams once again were special. Their effort gave Howard the edge in the battle of field position. We take great pride in our special teams units. Our defense and special teams set the tone for every ball game. We depend on them to be the enforcers!
We will continue to build on our team’s success. The object is to be better than the day before. We must stay focus. There is so much more football ahead to be played. Although we have traveled a mighty long way, we still have a long way to go. This team is showing that they are tough enough to play through adversity. We have key individuals with major injuries. Losing DeCarlos Knight and Ibrahima Kebe is devastating…but, it’s also a situation that will make us stronger as a team. We will finish this season strong for them.
We will continue to apply The “EX” Factor. We will do it with No EXcuses..No EXplanation..Just EXeucute!
Looking ahead to Saturday, North Carolina A&T is a tough team. We do not look at our opponent’s record. Howard University and North Carolina A&T has and will always be a great match up. With that being said, we plan on approaching North Carolina A&T as an undefeated team in the conference. Hope to see you down in Greensboro.
