S.C. State Coach Pough: New staff getting team ready

ORANGEBURG, South Carolina -- S.C. State Coach Buddy Pough kicked off the 15th season of the Orangeburg Touchdown Club Thursday with his coaching staff giving an overview of the team and projections for the season.

“It’s been a long off-season, and we’ve got some big holes to fill,” Pough said of his team. “I think we’ve got a lot of the right ingredients in place to fill those spots that we’ve got available.

“We’ve got four guys (Javon Hargrave-Pittsburgh, Temarrick Hemingway-Los Angeles, Jalen “Scoot” Simmons-Carolina, and Antonio Hamilton-Oakland) who were on this team last year at this time who are now on NFL rosters.”

Pough made it clear he realizes the schedule he helped set up for 2016 is a tough one from the start for the Bulldogs, playing on the road for the first four weekends: at Central Florida on Sept. 3, at Louisiana Tech on Sept. 10, at Clemson on Sept. 17 and at Florida A&M on Sept. 24.
