BANGOR – The wait is finally over for Husson football.
“Hear the pads clicking, hear everyone getting after it it’s awesome flying around we’re getting after it,” Husson quarterback Cory Brandon said.
The opposition can expect some bruising blows from the Eagles defense.
“This squad is full of hitters, everybody out here is a dog. That’s why I love my defense,” Husson linebacker Elvin Suazo said.
In addition, some lonely afternoons on “Soyini Island.”
“You on the island by yourself so there’s no help so if you want to come to my island you better work as well because I’m going to work you,” Husson defensive back Quan Soyini said.
The biggest question mark, who is going to pick it up on offense? As John Smith, the programs leading rusher and best player, has graduated.
“I’m ready to take on a little more than I had before and I’m ready to help out all my teammates in any way that I can in whatever role that is.” I’m excited to throw the ball of course but we’re going to do whatever it takes to win and that s what it s about getting those w’s,” Brandon said.
“It’s a new flock of Eagles this season, but as always, the foundation remains the same.
“We have a great tradition from the players I don t mean the culture is very good the guys the players the culture is terrific I don’t see any drop off at all from the culture that they have presented,” Husson head coach Gabby Price said.
Price has been around this program since its inception and has had to adapt to changes in the game and its players. One thing that’s stayed the same though, the tunes.
The Husson coaching staff has been playing music ranging from Toto to The Temptations and the players are into it.
“Coach Price he loves all this old music, but we love it too. We get after with him and we’re all having a good time together,” Brandon said.
“Practice is not so rowdy you don’t have kids running around here acting crazy you know listening to music,” Soyini said.
“I need that because I be too hype and that music calm me down,” Suazo said.
