Monday night signified tour stop numero cinco for SportsTalk’s 2013 “Palmetto Pigskin Tour”. Every year right around the time kickoff can be counted down within days of getting underway, we take our show on the road to visit the FCS schools around the state to preview their upcoming seasons. Thus far, we’ve headed west and north on the map to get the tour started. Today we headed towards the south and caught up with The Citadel football program.
First up to talk with Phil Kornblut was head coach Kevin Higgins. Coach discussed how last season shaped up, and how they plan on improving on last season’s 7-4 record. The Cadets will have o to do so without 2012’s top tackler, linebacker Carson Smith, who hurt his ankle just days ago and will miss the season.
Next up on the docket we were joined by all four captains of the football team.
The first two to sit down with Korn were senior offensive lineman Keith Carter and senior defensive lineman Derek Douglas.
