Charlotte, N.C. (Sept. 15, 2017) – The Johnson C. Smith University football team will play in the first road game of the season, traveling to NCAA FCS opponent South Carolina State on Saturday, Sept. 16. Kickoff from Oliver C. Dawson Stadium in Orangeburg, S.C. is set for 2:00 p.m.
JCSU fell to 0-2 on the season after suffering a 44-6 home loss to Virginia State last week. Against the Trojans, the JCSU rushing attack struggled, with the Golden Bulls only amassing 91 yards on the ground. Of those yards, junior quarterback Terrance Ervin (Richmond, Va.) accounted for 40 while sophomore teammate Braxton Gambrell (Seneca, S.C.) had 37 on the ground.
Ervin had a decent day in in the air as he connected on 11-of-25 pass attempts for 103 yards and a touchdown. JCSU’s receiving corps got a 40-yard touchdown reception by Denorris Johnson (Winston-Salem, N.C.) while Eugene Holmes (Columbia, S.C.) had two catches for 19 yards.
Defensively, JCSU’s Carlo Thomas (East Orange, N.J.) had 16 tackles, nine solo and registered two tackles for loss. Linebacker Marcel Toran (Washington, D.C.) had eight tackles with 1.5 for loss. Cornerback Daryl Napper (Winston-Salem, N.C.) also had a good outing, combining for six tackles, one interception and one breakup.
South Carolina State enters the game at 0-1 after a 14-8 road loss to Southern University on Sept. 3. Last week’s game against Charleston Southern was canceled due to the threat of Hurricane Irma.
Against Southern, SCSU quarterback Dewann Ford threw for 187 yards on an 18-of-31 outing with one interception. Trey Samuel led the Bulldogs on the ground with 61 yards on 10 carries. Tra’Quan Dubose was the leader of the SCSU receiving corps with four catches for 70 yards. Teammate Quan Caldwell also had four catches for 65 yards while De’Montez Burroughs had five catches for 35 yards.
SCSU was kept out of the endzone, as kicker Tyler Scandrett connected on field goals of 37 and 35 yards, respectively. The SCSU defense also forced a safety to round out the Bulldog scoring.
