SC State opens first practice with tough road trips looming

ORANGEBURG, South Carolina -- Just a few short weeks ago, South Carolina State was picked by the media to finish fourth in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

To Bulldogs head coach Buddy Pough, the prediction matters very little to him. However, his players believe it’s just the motivation they need to win yet another MEAC championship.

“All I’m going to say is since we’ve been picked fourth, we’ve got to play with a monkey on our back and a little chip on our shoulder,” Bulldogs linebacker and MEAC Preseason Defensive Player of the Year Darius Leonard said. “I don’t think that we should be fourth, but if we go out there and play each game hard, we’ll see the [final] score.”

The Bulldogs held their first practice of the season on Friday morning at Oliver C. Dawson Stadium.
