What a task for first year secondary coach Corey Raymond. Gone are players like Prince Amakumara, Dejon Gomes, Eric Haag and even senior Alfonso Dennard is out. Raymond will get everyone involved against Tennessee Chattanooga. Two of those young players who will see action are sophomore’s Andrew Green and Ciante Evans. Raymond says his advice for the young guys on Saturday…have fun and remember the job at hand.
What the secondary lacks in experience, NU makes up with a couple of linebackers who continue to grow in Lavonte David and Will Compton. Linebackers coach Ross Els talks about them grasping the schemes and understanding the system
If I can offer up any type of advice when you’re watching this game, get a roster card in front of you. Both Raymond and Els and the other coaches as well have mentioned they will rotate a lot of players. This first game Saturday at 230 against Tennessee Chattanooga should be the type of opponent that will allow NU to play a lot of guys, especially in the second half.
