Dave Doeren Meets with the Press After BC Loss: BULLETED

Published

on

NC State head coach Dave Doeren met with the media after the Wolfpack’s 45-24 loss to Boston College this afternoon. You can watch the video here, or read the bulleted breakdown below.

Failing to stop the run…

  • Don’t know where to start.
    • Didn’t tackle well.
    • Didn’t set edges.
    • Didn’t play low enough.
    • Didn’t have good enough technique.
  • Pushed around at times.
  • Their running backs ran through contact.
  • Bottom line: they did a better job.

Devin Leary…

  • Felt like Bailey Hockman was a little bit shook.
    • Could be wrong on that, but that’s how I felt.
  • Devin Leary went in and looked calm and we wanted to give him a shot.
    • He seemed level. Wasn’t pressing and was just playing.
  • Valuable reps for him to get out there and see what he can do.

Injuries…

  • There’s 11 guys that were in our 2-deep when the season started that aren’t playing right now.
    • Makes it hard for chemistry on either side of the ball.
    • There’s a lot of guys not playing. Not an excuse.
  • The guys out there have to take advantage of the opportunity to play better.
  • Have to do everything schematically to give them opportunities to make plays.

Red zone efficiency…

  • It’s everything.
  • Ran a timing route for Thayer Thomas early in the game.
    • He was open and Bailey Hockman threw it over his head. Would have been a touchdown.
  • We got stopped 2x down there on an inside rush off the edge.
    • Last year, Reggie Gallaspy could’ve ran threw that probably. Freshman Running Backs not there yet.
  • Went with Matt McKay to see if he could get us some QB run game going. Didn’t get us in the end zone.
  • There’s a lot of things we’ve got to look at. It’s infinite right now.

NC State’s Dave Doeren Buys Lunch for Rex Hospital Employees

Published

on

Earlier this week, NC State head football coach Dave Doeren bought lunch for 100 employees at Rex Hospital in Raleigh.

The food bought was from Moe’s Southwest Grill.

Rex is where NC State sends their players if they need to go to the hospital.

Alan Wolf, media relations manager for Rex Healthcare, told Jonas Pope IV of the News & Observer how much Doeren’s generosity meant.

“It’s a stressful time to be at the hospital,” Wolf told the N&O on Tuesday. “These are folks on the front line of helping patients through this pandemic. To have an outpouring of support from people like coach Doeren and those in the community who have donated all sorts of food, lunches, meals, it’s been an amazing thing to see.”

“It’s thoughtful, it’s generous and it’s heartwarming,” Wolf said. “When you’re in the hospital for however long your shift is and all of a sudden there’s a boxed lunch that a football coach donated, it means the world.” (N&O)
