Last year, Murray State and defense weren’t used often in the same sentence, unless there was some negative term in between them. But this year, with quarterback Casey Brockman graduated, Murray State head coach Chris Hatcher is looking for someone to stand out on the offensive end.
“We’ve got to have someone on offense step up as a leader of that group,” Hatcher said following today’s scrimmage. “That’s something we’re lacking. We have no consistency on that side of the ball”
But Hatcher was pleased with his defense, an area that was much maligned last season.
“Defensively, boy that look good. They flew around, they tackled extremely well. We gave up two touchdowns in the red zone, but other than that the offense didn’t do much at all today.”
Murray State annual spring game is next Saturday, April 20th at noon.
