Scouting ECU: Offense

Posted: October 9, 2014 in Football

ECU runs an offense that likes to spread the field and get the ball out fast to its receivers. With Shane Carden running and throwing the ball all over the field, the USF defense will have a tough time in this game. They will have to protect the sidelines and try to force some turnovers to get Carden and company off the field. Let’s take a closer look at their unit.

Offensive line

At left tackle is junior Ike Harris (6’7″ 304 lbs.). He made 12 starts last year. Behind him is junior Stewart Hinson (6’7″ 296 lbs.). At left guard is junior Quincy McKinney (6’4″ 311 lbs.) who was a top JUCO transfer from last year’s recruiting class. Behind him is junior Will Fox (6’2″ 313 lbs.).
