Young Players to Power Huskers to Title Games

+Read full article

Youth is key, and that is the way it’s going to be for Nebraska this year. The Huskers veterans are going to have to lead the young pups in the ways of the Huskers.

The Huskers started three underclassmen on the offensive line for the first time since 2008. Two sophomores and one true freshmen started this past weekend, and it was obvious at times. There were plenty of missed blocks and assignments, allowing Tennessee Chattanooga’s defense to stop the Huskers for short games.

Damion Stafford played pretty well this weekend. Though he is a young guy, and did miss some assignments, but for the most part he was where he needed to be. He also laid a bone-jarring hit on a UTC running back weekend that drew the applause from the crowd. It was a defensive energizing hit for sure.

Andrew Green and Ciante Evans also stepped into the spot light on Saturday. Both of them played decent for the most part, but Andrew made some gross defensive mistakes. He got burned on the lone touchdown for the Mocs, and also got excited and jumped a few routes that led to big plays.

The Huskers will rely on these young guns for the remainder of the season. Andrew and Ciante are battling for the #2 cornerback position, and will play a major role in the defense this season. Damion Stafford will be playing more and more this season, and from now on will be expected to level bone crushing hits.

The offensive line will rely on these young boys to continue to provide immense depth to the line. Andrew Rodriguez, Tyler Moore, and Spencer Long. These boys will improve day by day, especially going against Jared Crick, Cameron Meredith, and Eric Martin every day.

In the coming years, these younger guys will become the leaders of the next generation of Husker players, so they better get their act together. Go B1G RED!
