Delaware State Hornets get ready for football season

DOVER, Delaware -- The Delaware State football team hit the field for its first official preseason practice at Alumni Stadium on Friday afternoon.

The session was heavy on individual and position drills, in addition to plenty of special teams work. The Hornets practice again today from 4-6 p.m.

DSU kicks off the season on Aug. 31 at Delaware at 7 p.m.

The Hornets, coming off an 0-11 season, have been picked to finish last in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

“I believe we have taken the right steps to be competitive in the MEAC this season,” said third-year coach Kenny Carter. “We return more than 50 players from the 2016 squad, led by many sophomores and juniors who have gained valuable experience while developing a dogged determination through the struggles of the last two years. In addition, we have our strongest class of newcomers since I arrived and several players who sat out due to injury last year are back and ready to contribute.”
