NSU Spartans enter second scrimmage seeking consistency on both sides of the ball

NORFOLK, Virginia -- It’s always difficult for football coaches to gauge the successes or failures of a preseason intrasquad scrimmage.

If your offense thrives, then the defense might need work. If the offense does little, then it could be a sign of a stout defense.

What second-year Norfolk state coach Latrell Scott saw Saturday during his team’s first August scrimmage indicated that both units have room for improvement heading into the second scrimmage, scheduled for 6 p.m. Saturday.

“The offense came out and scored big on the first drive and then stalled for a little while until we got in the red zone,” Scott said. “The defense played well early, and then gave up a long touchdown in the two-minute drive (at the end of the scrimmage). So I think it’s just consistency that we want to make sure we have at the end.”
