Our 2015 rendition of the Palmetto Pigskin Tour rolled along again Thursday night as Phil Kornblut broadcast SportsTalk live from Coastal Carolina in Conway, South Carolina.
The Chanticleer program has become one of the elite at the FCS level under the tutelage of head coach Joe Moglia. Moglia is entering his 4th season in 2015 as the man leading the way for the Chants, and in his tenure, has led the program to a #1 ranking and multiple playoff births.
Coach Moglia was the first to join Korn for an interview following his team’s practice tonight. He discussed what he believes his guys will need to do to take that next step to become champions, personnel differences to be aware of this season, and the schedule they’ll face. Of course Phil wouldn’t let coach get away without first having him provide the audience with some financial advice. Par for the course anytime coach joins us for a chat, following the football talk.
Next up we were joined on the program by two Chanticleer players, one representing both sides of the ball. The offense was represented by receiver Bruce Mapp. The defense by end, and leading returning tackler, Calvin Hollenhorst. Mapp discussed how camp has progressed for his famed, high-powered offense. Hollenhorst discussed the personnel losses, and how his unit wants to get a piece of the glory, nationally, that the guys on the other side of the ball have commanded recently, and more.
Coastal will open their season in the upstate when they travel to Greenville to take on Furman on Saturday, September 5th at 7:00.
