Golden Bulls football cleans house for fresh start and attitude

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina -- Johnson C. Smith football has been scrubbed of underachievers.

Golden Bulls coach Kermit Blount used spring practice as an audition for the fall. Players who measured up are in preseason camp to improve on last year’s 4-6 record. Those who didn’t aren’t.

“We made some changes coming out of spring,” said Blount, who is in his second season at JCSU. “There were some young men who didn’t return. We made some additions to those guys we didn’t allow to return, but I’m really pleased with the work ethic right now, I’m really pleased with the attitude, the mental side of it. I think our guys get it. They understand where they want to go and want to accomplish. It’s a matter of us putting it together.”

All-America safety Carlo Thomas isn’t shy about calculating what’s ahead, starting with the Sept. 3 opener at Wingate.
