JSU Football Perfecting Its Identity
"Rough and tough" were the words JSU offensive lineman Kyron Samuels used to describe the identity of the 2016 team. The redshirt senior knows a strong running game with tough play in the trenches on both sides of the ball has led to the team's success so far. The Gamecocks (5-1, 2-0 OVC) will travel to Richmond, KY to face Eastern Kentucky in the first conference road test of the season. JSU is expected to have Roc Thomas back in the lineup after missing last week's game with a concussion. In his absence the Gamecocks turned to Josh Clemons who posted a career-high 143 yards and a touchdown. The 1-2 punch in the backfield is an added benefit to the offensive unit.
The Gamecocks and Colonels square off at 2:00 pm in Richmond, Kentucky on the OVC Digital Network.
