2015 Kay Yow Spring Football Game Info

Basketball is over.

Baseball AND Softball are both out of town.

So as if you needed another reason to head out to Carter-Finley THIS SATURDAY, APRIL 11th, for the Annual Kay Yow Spring Football Game, there’s also the fact that it supports a really good cause.  So if you need an excuse, you can tell yourself (and everyone else) that you’re doing it to be a good human type creature.

BUT…to do that, and do it honestly, you have to donate at least $1 for the cause.  But try not to be so cheap.  Pry open your wallets, dust out the cobwebs, and try to part with AT LEAST a few bucks you tightwads.

As a side benefit, you’ll also be able to get an early sneak peek at what will hopefully/probably be 3rd yr Head Coach Dave Doeren’s best edition yet since his arrival in Raleigh.

You can get all the particulars Here, including this Activities Schedule/Map.

Among other fun activities will be the 2015 WPC BBQ Bowl beginning at 6pm Friday evening

Coach DD recently held a very informative presser where he discussed his thoughts on the Kay Yow Spring Game, as well as spring practice and the 2015 Edition of Pack Football at some length.

So yeah…I’m not saying that you’re a bad person if you don’t go this Saturday to support Wolfpack Football and the Kay Yow Cancer Research Fund.  But someone somewhere might.

So, why take chances?

    Tonight’s events have been cancelled due to weather, but tomorrow should be a beautiful day. Looking forward to some pre-game beer and brats, and hopefully a good crowd for the game. Anxious to see McClendon, Gallaspy, Roseboro etc. get their first taste of action. Especially want to see how McClendon looks out there. We will be pretty short-handed at the WR position, so not expecting a lot from the passing game. Also the kickers get their 1st game action.

    Should be an overall fun day.

    Really nice press conference from Doreen. Enjoyed that more than 99% of everything that I’ve ever heard from any coach because Doreen comes across as a straight shooter.

    “We will be pretty short-handed at the WR position, so not expecting a lot from the passing game.”

    With Jonathan Alston JR, Bra’Lon Cherry JR, Jumichael Ramos JR, and Stephen Louis SO, returning at WR along with Jalen Samuels and Matt Dayes out of the backfield we are definitely NOT short-handed in the passing game.

    Sure, we will miss Bo Hines and JVS but I’m more concerned with who we have than who we don’t have. Our passing game will provide as much if not more yardage this year than last year. Coach McDonald has done a great job with the receivers this spring. It looks like the “dropsies” have been cured.

    Nyheim Hines in the slot is a more than adequate replacement for departing freshman, Bo Hines.

    RSFR Maurice Trowell will add to the WR depth along with incoming FR Vernon Grier, Brian Sessoms, and Freddie Simmons. FWIW Sessoms has been clocked under 4.3 in the 40 by our staff. They couldn’t believe it and clocked him 4 times. That’s serious speed. Simmons has the hands, runs great routes and could be the possession receiver of the future.

    The place to be concerned is the 4 starting tackles Who graduated — 2 OTs and 2 DTs. And that seems to be coming along nicely although injuries makes determining who will play where difficult to see this spring.

    I meant thin for the spring game. Both Alston and Cherry are hurt, and I believe neither will be playing today.

    Sorry about that. I can see that now when I read it again.

    It will be interesting to see if Ramos and Trowell step up. What I want to see is the expanded role for J-Sam and how RGII does running the ball. And of course the OL.

    I’m trying desperately to curb my enthusiasm without much success. 😉

    I think there was maybe 12,000 or so. hard to say because people were coming in and leaving at different times. If I was counting by UNC standards, we had a little over 50,000.

    Tough to take anything from the game. Like I said earlier, a lot of guys were out, and I didn’t even recognize the names of half the guys lining up at WR. A few observations tho:
    – Samuels is going to be major impact player. That guy was everywhere;
    – Gallaspy is an absolute terror. I have no idea how the other freshmen RBs will do, but he will be hard to keep off the field;
    – Street looked bigger and really, really good;
    – Roseboro had some nice plays and absolutely blew up a running play 8 yards into the backfield;
    – Brissett was very rusty;
    – McClendon looks like he could be good. Was a little unsure at times, but he has a big tall frame and a rocket for an arm. Just didn’t have much in the way of receivers to throw to;
    – Punting looked fine, kicking tho was a bit of a soft spot;
    – the pre-game beer and brats were outstanding.

    Not much but it’s a little something:

    Freshman running back Reggie Gallaspy II ran for 131 yards while rising junior Matt Dayes nearly racked up 100 total yards in North Carolina State’s spring game Saturday.
