TALLAHASSEE----While the Noles have evened their record, the Rattlers find themselves in familiar grounds, and it's not getting any more comfortable. For the second year in a row, the Rattlers kick off their season in an 0-2 hole.
Looking at the numbers, it seems that both teams played identical. 118 net rushing yards for Delaware State, compared to an even 100 for the Rattlers.
172 passing yards for the Hornets, compared to 179 from Albert Chester. This is a number that might have been much greater if the good ole Willie Hayward took the field.
"Willie's ability to catch the football and also provide a threat on the offensive side of the ball. We're hoping that we can get him back as soon as we can. So we can have that big playmaker and the big threat he poses against a defense," says head Rattler Rubin Carter.
