DOVER, Delaware — A bye week didn’t necessarily mean a week of rest for the Delaware State football team.
Coach Kenny Carter said the Hornets were going to go at it hard for two weeks of practice before the upcoming game at Missouri on Saturday.
With such a young team that is making mistakes based on inexperience, that’s what DSU has to do in the open week, especially since most of the squad does not have any injury concerns.
“There’s no worrying about trying to get healthy because we’re healthy,” Carter said. “Sure, there’s some guys dinged up a bit, but they’ll be fine. We’re going to work. We’ve got a lot of work to do and we can’t afford to take time off. Young people, and we’re young, they need to learn how to grind.”
And the Hornets (0-2) will need to grind if they want to have a positive experience against a team from the SEC.
