WINCHESTER, Va. – One of our most popular blogs, "Huddle Buzz", makes its return today under the direction of junior mass communications major and starting left guard Andrew Coffman.

In Andrew's words…

Welcome to 'Wavy's Huddle Buzz", the new and improved blog for the SU football team. My name is Andrew Coffman and I am a junior mass communications major from Keezletown, Virginia and the starting left guard on the offensive line. This will be my first year at the helm of the 'Huddle Buzz' and I look forward to giving an inside look at the squad. 

Ed. Note: Andrew is a two-year starter for the Hornets and was a third team All-ODAC honoree in 2016. He is also the subject of the weekly Instagram post that shows what uniform combination the team is wearing that week. Also, he is the third author of "Huddle Buzz", taking over a position that was started by Byron Mitchell '14 and passed to Qlyl Middelijn '17.

This past weekend we traveled down to Rocky Mount, North Carolina to play N.C. Wesleyan. Having lost to them 31-13 at home last year, rushing for negative total yards and allowing multiple sacks, we wanted to send a message that we were not the same team.

Going into the game we knew we had to be the more physical team, something we had definitely not accomplished last year. We had to come out the gate fast and dominate the line of scrimmage. 

We won the toss and elected to receive. Hayden (Hayden Bauserman) threw his first touchdown pass of the night to Leonard (Leonard Scott) just 1:54 into the game and before I knew it we were jogging towards the locker room with a 30-7 lead at halftime!

We knew we couldn't afford any sense of complacency beginning the third quarter. Leading by just three scores isn't as comfortable when you know how fast momentum can change in a foreign environment. Just like we did in the first quarter, we had to come out fast and prove not only to our opponents, but also to ourselves, that we are an elite team that can finish games.

In a blink of an eye the game was over and the final score was 61-14 with Hayden throwing five touchdowns to four different receivers: Leonard (2), Michael Ashwell, Dershone (Dershone Hayman), and Lump (Matthew Lumpkin).

Mario (Mario Wisdom) and Cory (Cory Bell) each found the end zone on the ground with Mario scoring twice. Our defense was balling out by forcing six turnovers, three sacks and getting three straight three-and-outs to begin the second half. All of this led to Nate (Nate Hill) being named the ODAC Defensive Player of the Week and the team realizing its pre-season goal of having a winning record in out-of-conference play.

The week after a big win can go two ways in the world of football. A team can lose sight of the big picture and celebrate the previous victory or they can lock in and stay focused to goals they set in the beginning of the season. If you had attended any of our practices this past week you would know for a fact we had the latter mindset.

Being on the road again in another hostile environment against another good team is going to be a good test for our program. I have full faith in our team and I believe we can beat any team we line up against. Traveling to Geneva, New York and playing nationally-recognized Hobart College will be a good test of my theory.

If you want to support your Hornets as they take on Hobart College tomorrow at 7 p.m., be sure to go to suhornets.com and live stream the game. Also be sure to check the SU football page every Friday for 'Wavy's Huddle Buzz' as we continue towards our goal of an ODAC championship!

Yours truly,

Wavy
