Concord Set to Host Frostburg State on Homecoming

Concord will welcome 4-1 Frostburg State as they search for their first victory on the season. It will be no easy task as Frostburg has won eight of their last nine games dating back to last season. They also currently sit at number three in the MEC polls. To earn a victory on Saturday, the first key is to eliminate mental mistakes and stick to the details of the game.

When it comes to offense for Concord, the overall product hasn’t been great. Averaging just 18 points a game thus far, compared to 27 at this time last season. Their task doesn’t get any easier this week as they host the number one total defense in the conference. When asked if anything will change schematically for this week, Coach Ferguson says execution of the game plan is the most important key for his offense.

Concord’s main focus on defense this week will be to stop the run. Frostburg is a run-first offense having attempted 129 passes compared to 201 rush attempts. They also have the 6th leading rusher in the conference in Sean Aaron.

Team leaders in tackles such as Jamari Smith and Brodee Rice will be key for Concord this week.

Homecoming Week

It is also homecoming week for Concord University, which is something Coach Ferguson and his players do not take lightly.

The message has been the same for Coach Ferguson since the beginning of the season, he wants to build champions for life. On and off the field, however, a win on Saturday in front of a huge crowd would certainly help the morale of the entire group.

On Saturday, in Callaghan Stadium, the kickoff is at 1:00 p.m.
