In recent years, Ferrum has struggled against the Hornets, as they have not defeated Shenandoah since 2012/ One of the differences I have noticed was the size difference along the line of scrimmage. To me, Shenandoah was bigger.....a lot bigger. I am not sure whether this will be the case this year, but I have a much more positive feeling.
Ferrum has shown a good amount of promise after their first game, but as I said in an earlier post, one game does not a season make. There is reason for optimism, but also things that cause me concern.
What I see that needs improvement for Ferrum is:
* Being quicker out of the gates. Don't make come from behind wins a habit.....my heart can't take it.
* Let's get tighter with special teams. A FG could make the difference, and so could a kick return.
* Be ready for the secondary to be tested. Consistent pressure on the Hornets quarterback is a must.
I have a good feeling about this game, and while this is not going to be easy, I see Ferrum coming home, 2-0.
Can't get to the game? Below is the link you can use to watch the game.....don't forget, it's a 7p.m. kickoff.
