DOVER, Delaware — Aris Scott has seen a lot of things at Delaware State.
Most of them have not been good.
One of only seven seniors on the Hornet football team this year, DSU’s top wide receiver has experienced two different head coaches, six different starting quarterbacks and 26 losses in his career.
A new season, though, brings a fresh start. Scott is determined to erase the bad memories and end his career on a positive note.
“We went 1-10 last year,” he said. “That’s all the motivation you need.”
Scott is one of 12 holdovers who were recruited to DelState by former coach Kermit Blount. Blount was let go after the 2014 season and was replaced by first-time head coach Kenny Carter.
The Hornets did lose players during the coaching change. A handful elected to finish their careers elsewhere after Carter’s first season in charge.
