Tonight SportsTalk’s “Palmetto Pigskin Tour” rolled along to our second destination on our annual trip to the in-state college teams in South Carolina. Phil Kornblut broadcast Wednesday’s show live from Newberry College, home of the Wolves.
Wolves’ head coach Todd Knight was first to sit down with Korn to discuss the upcoming season. First Coach Knight had to rehash the rollercoaster season that was 2012 in which his squad started out 4-0, only to finish 1-6 in their final 7 games. Coach explains the challenges the injury bug can present, and how he plans to prevent that bug from biting again this season. Knight also talks returning personnel, including his signal-caller in W.T. Murden, and receiver Corey Washington.
The South Atlantic Conference coaches picked Knight’s Wolves to finish fifth in the league, and Coach Knight provided his thoughts on his colleagues prediction as well.
Finally two players, senior wideout Corey Washington and senior defensive lineman Letavious Williams, both joined Phil to discuss the upcoming season. Washington and Williams discussed last season’s second half collapse, and what they’re doing to avoid a repeat of that collapse this season.
