FAMU QB Stanley, Rattlers roll by Delaware State

DOVER, Delaware -- Florida A&M has been a different team over its last three games – mostly thanks to the team’s new starting quarterback.

Redshirt freshman Ryan Stanley has been the starter for the Rattlers’ last three games, and he’s shaping up to be the signal-caller head coach Alex Wood expected when he brought him on before last season.

Stanley put on a show Saturday against Del. State while leading the Rattlers to a 41-27 victory in Dover. He completed 15 of his 29 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown, but did most of his damage on the ground. He also carried the ball 12 times for 118 yards and three touchdowns.

“It feels good,” Stanley said. “The offense finally came together. It looks like I did a lot but I owe that to the O-line. My receivers made plays for me as well and the running backs did well. We finally all clicked as one.”

This is the third year in a row the Rattlers have put up at 41 points against Del. State and the third straight year FAMU has defeated the Hornets.
