Alcorn rebounds in history-making fashion in week 2


The Alcorn State Braves took their 41 to nothing loss against Georgia Tech in week one and rebounded in a history-making way in week two.

The Braves’ 78-0 win over Louisiana College was the most lopsided game ever at Spinks-Casem Stadium.

“I know we can do whatever we have to do to put points on the board,” said Braves receiver Johnathon Hauer. “So, I’m not really surprised, but it feels amazing right now. I’m not even going to lie to you.”

“This team deserved every bit of the effort that they did to make history tonight,” head coach Fred McNair said to the media Saturday.

“I feel like we can score that many points all the time,” said quarterback Noah Johnson. “I have a lot of confidence, and as long as we can come out a execute, we can put up a lot of numbers.”

The Braves finished with 629 yards of total offense against the Wildcats.

And on defense, they allowed only 3 first downs.

McNair said the physicality of last week’s match up against the Yellow Jackets was a teaching moment for his team.

“I was proud of the defense last week,” said McNair. “I think that what they did against Georgia Tech was stunning. I think to them, they came out and played as a defense, as a whole. But tonight, they were relentless and they played with effort. The played with speed and they played with a lot of excitement and that’s the thing that Coach [Cedric] Thornton does every week during practice to get these guys to play fast like they did tonight.”

“We just got to continue to improve. Like I was telling the guys a while ago, we still got to improve on some things that we didn’t do really well on the course of this game.”
