Deep Delaware State Hornet backfield aims to dominate

DOVER, Delaware — The Delaware State football team’s best position last season is even deeper for 2017.

Not only do the Hornets return their top two rushers, but the backfield gets a boost because Nyfease West is now healthy.

West sat out all of the 2016 season with a knee injury. He had to watch from the sideline as the Hornets went winless.

Brycen Alleyne and Mike Waters provided some of the few bright spots for Delaware State during that losing streak. Both running backs finished in the top-five in the MEAC in rushing.

The addition of West just makes that unit more dangerous.

“I feel like we got the best backfield in the conference,” Alleyne said. “No one can compete with us in the backfield.”
