Jenkins warns SWAC of breakout season for ASU

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – Alabama State football coach Brian Jenkins was fashionably late for the 2017 SWAC media day at the Birmingham Marriott, but was grinning from ear-to-ear.

Jenkins spoke confidently about his team coming off his first losing season as a head coach.

The Hornets went 4-7 and suffered their first losing season since 2009, but Jenkins said his program is coming back with a vengeance.

“We’re really looking forward to playing this season,” Jenkins said. “They know how they felt and how I felt (about last season). You can tell that the feeling runs deep, because they haven’t repeated anything they did last year.”

Last year, the Hornets lost four games by seven points or less. They had leads in the fourth quarter against Texas Southern (31-27 loss) and Alabama A&M (42-41 overtime loss).

Hornets senior cornerback Ronnie Scott said the difference this season will paying attention to the smaller things.
