NSU football: old, young or both

The Norfolk State Spartans are two weeks into preseason football camp. They're looking to take a step forward in Coach Latrell Scott's third year.

As Norfolk State head coach Latrell Scott says, "We're an older, young football team. We've only got 6 seniors."

The Spartans do have underclassmen who got plenty of playing time last year. They return a combined 12 starters on offense and defense.

Two weeks into practice and they're still trying to decide on who will be their starting quarterback. It's a three man competition.

Expect their defense to be a strength once again and perhaps hold things together while the offense comes around.

NSU has gone 4-7 in each of Coach Scott's first two seasons. The MEAC media predicts the Spartans to finish seventh in the conference this fall.
