New Monmouth descent coordinator Kevin Morris is instituting a new up-tempo offense and with that, comparison quarterback Brandon Hill is being asked to do a lot in terms of creation certain everybody is on a same page.
The new offense debuted to soap-box reviews during Saturday’s 52-21 drubbing of Delaware St. The Hawks had KB Asante and Lavon Chaney any rush for over 100 yards, a run diversion constructed 311 rushing yards all told and a 52 points were a many for Monmouth in a season-opener in a decade.
Within all of a ostentatious numbers, there was Hill. The Audubon local and University of Massachusetts send went 23-for-36 for 218 yards, dual touchdown passes and 0 interceptions.
Hill was good as a junior, throwing for 2,361 yards and 19 touchdowns, though some of a 11 interceptions he had could have been avoided with improved throws and improved decision-making. On Saturday, Hill seemed really many in control around and played mistake-free football as a Hawks were means to get off 92 descent plays opposite a Hornets.
“I consider he’s apropos some-more and some-more gentle with this offense and his play yesterday demonstrated that comfort level,” Monmouth conduct manager Kevin Callahan pronounced around phone on Sunday afternoon. “He was really fit in how he operated and managed a game. He kept a dash where we wanted it and he was means to make a plays and make a calls.”
“What he did yesterday is accurately what we need out of that position. He’s reporting himself as a personality of a offense.”
Aside from Hill’s play, a large descent and from Saturday is that several players were means to get their feet soppy during a college turn for a initial time. Between Hill and backup quarterback Greg DePugh, they finished passes to 12 opposite players. Of a 12, 6 purebred their initial collegiate reception.
The many considerable outings from a new guys came from loyal sophomore Darrem Ambush, who had 4 catches for 30 yards and a 17-yard touchdown pass from Hill in a third quarter, and redshirt beginner Matt Choi, who had 3 catches for 21 yards.
Ambush worked with a first-team offense out of a container for many of training camp, while Choi had a really prolific stay after an enlivening spring.
“It was really critical to get them concerned and get them a ambience of what it’s like out there,” Callahan said. “If a play-count stays like it was yesterday, we’re going to need uninformed bodies. We’re awaiting to go 90 plays, so it’s critical to get all of those guys concerned and get them creation plays for us. That’s what we’re expecting.”
Sullivan OK after rolling ankle
Monmouth emerged from training stay really healthy and it did a same off of Saturday’s game, including Dan Sullivan.
The fifth-year comparison center linebacker rolled his right ankle after returning a second-quarter interception 28 yards to a Delaware St. 33-yard line.
The one-time Manasquan High School star had to be helped off a field, though returned for a second half. Callahan was means to get Sullivan copiousness of rest after halftime because, as he noted, with Delaware St. opting to play with 4 and five-receiver sets, a Hawks went nickel, that separated a need for a center linebacker.
