Defense Dominates Spring Game
GREENSBORO, April 9, 2011 – When a coach of Rod Broadway’s considerable reputation steps on the field, expectations soar without hesitation. But following North Carolina A&T’s annual Spring Football Game on Saturday, the first-year Aggies head coach had one reminder: “It’s only been 15 days.”
Broadway was cautious about being too critical of his team. He understands many of his players are learning a new system and a new coaching staff for the third time in four years.
“Our goal is simple,” said Broadway. “We’re just going to get better. We’re going to get it turned around. I don’t know how much time that will take us because we’re down so far when you talk about scholarships and (Academic Progress Rate). But once we get our scholarships back, we’ll be okay.”
The Aggies concluded their spring session at Aggie Stadium with Saturday’s scrimmage clearing showing the defense is ahead of the offense. After the Aggies ran 100 plays, the gold-jerseyed Aggies defense recorded four turnovers and four three and outs to come away with a 26-10 win over the offense in blue.
