VIDEO: Senior RB Reggie Gallaspy talks about leadership and how it’s ‘his time’ to shine

Published

on

Senior RB Reggie Gallaspy talks about being the leader in the backfield after day 4 of fall camp. Gallaspy rushed for 505 yards last season and scored 7 rushing touchdowns while backing up Nyheim Hines. Here’s what he had to say in BULLETED form.

  • After 2 1000 yard rushers in a row it means a lot to be able to try to continue that.
  • Stress getting to 1000 yards. RBs always say ‘Who’s next?” I want to be next, but so do others
  • Busting my butt every day to achieve my goal also pushes other guys
  • Been humble. Waited in line. Now it’s time. It’s time to take advantage of it.
  • Same process as in high school. Was patient then too. People doubted, but went out and put up 3000 yards. Same process here.
  • Amazing running behind “band of brother” (the OL’s nickname). Had good OLs before, but the chemistry this one has is amazing. Brotherhood in OL room and now RBs are brothers with them too.
  • Tells OL to just open up the hole and I’ll get you off the field. They give credit to him. He gives credit to them.
  • Coaches made sure OL and RBs are in meetings together to keep chemistry and communication
  • Was nicked up last year. Fought through it. Small injury. Back healthy now. Now it’s about building wind up to carry the load.
  • Means a lot to lead young guys. More of a laid back guy, but had to step up and be vocal to lead.
  • Ignoring outside noise. Keeping eyes on goals. Busting butts and grinding every day.
  • Feels great and renewed. Confident going in the game fresh.
  • Last year was about making sure he didn’t get hurt and could give Nyheim a break.
  • Young guys are learning how to pass protect. Coming and trying to catch on is tough. Trying to simplify it for them and teach them up.
  • Won’t single out a young RB who is catching on best with pass protection but all are doing pretty good.

NC State vs. FSU Kickoff Set for 3:30pm

Published

on

NC State’s homecoming matchup versus Florida State November 3rd has given a kickoff time of 3:30pm on either ESPN2 or ABC. It looks like Noon kickoffs are a thing of the past:)

The last time the Wolfpack played in the 3:30 time slot, they beat their arch-nemesis UNC last season 33-21. Last year, NC State was 1-2 in 3:30 games:

Notre Dame – 14-35
Clemson – 31-38
UNC – 33-21

NC State has really struggled in their homecoming games as of late, winning their last one back in 2011 against the 8th ranked Clemson Tigers.

NC State’s Depth Chart vs. Syracuse (with notes)

Published

on

NC State released their Depth Chart for their matchup against Syracuse at Dave Doeren’s weekly press conference at Noon. While it is identical to last weeks, there are a few notes below.

Notes

There were quite a few injuries that occurred in the Wolfpack’s loss to Clemson. Doeren had no update on the status of any of these players specifically, as he will be meeting with the trainer at 3:30 today. The only thing he had to offer was each player was doing “better.”

  • Starting Left Guard Terronne Prescod looked like he injured his back in the contest, and only played 41 snaps. A back injury kept him out of the Marshall game.
  • Starting Wide Receiver Stephen Louis left the game with what was thought to possibly be a broken leg, but word is that it might not be worst case scenario.
  • Running Back Ricky Person played well against the Tigers, but left the contest, and was on the sidelines on crutches. It looked like he re-injured his hamstring.
  • Wide Receiver CJ Riley also came up slowly in the contest.

We will have to wait until Thursday to talk to Doeren to see if there are any updates on the status of these 4 players.

Even prior to NC State’s loss to Clemson, the Wolfpack’s upcoming matchup against Syracuse this Saturday at 7pm on ESPN2 was projected to be a tossup. With the 41-7 loss in the back of Vegas’ mind, the Wolfpack opens as a 1-point underdog against the Orangemen.

  • North Carolina State is 7-1 Straight Up in its last 8 games
  • North Carolina State is 2-3-1 Against The Spread in its last 6 games on the road
  • North Carolina State is 8-3 Straight Up in its last 11 games on the road
  • North Carolina State is 6-1 Straight Up in its last 7 games when playing Syracuse (OddShark)

NC State has won their last 4 matchups against Syracuse, and is 2-2 against the spread in those games. The last time the Wolfpack was the underdog against the Orangemen was in 2014, and they turned that into a 7-point victory.
