Neal Bradley and Tracy Ross discuss Racer football and basketball.

 

Bradley says the Racers lost last weekend’s game because of familiar issues seen in the September 17 game against Southern Illinois. The Racers inability to run the ball and early offensive miscues kept them from building momentum against Southeast Missouri State. Quarterback KD Humphries’s sprained shoulder prevented him from getting necessary practice reps prior to the games, and running back Mark Dodson’s injury made it difficult to develop the running game.

 

Despite the early season struggles with their running game, the Racers were able to beat rival Austin Peay this afternoon 45 to 17 after a strong performance from KD Humphries.

 

The Racer Basketball Team began practicing Friday. Bradley says this season’s team will be deep, talented, and quick. He says transfer Jonathan Stark will be a dynamic player and freshman Terrell Miller will be forceful. Bradley says fans are salivating at what the season could be. In spite of a challenging schedule, Bradley says this team could do well. He predicts the Racers and Belmont will be at the top of the OVC. Basketball season starts November 11.
