FAMU Football: FAMU 34-DSU 7 (Blitz Analysis)

FAMU’s gridiron gladiators displayed a stifling defense, solid special teams and aggressive offensive gameplan to pull away from Delaware State with a final score of 34-7…

In his 1st official start as a Rattler, True Freshman Damien Fleming showed the confidence, arm strength, and moxie outside of the pocket that led the coaching staff to hand him the keys to the FAMU offense last week during the ATL Classic. With the 3rd play from scrimmage in the contest the Jacksonville, FL native connected with Redshirt Freshman Lenworth Lennon on a fly route that summed up the strategy for the game-run when needed but take shots deep as often as possible. While 245 yards is pedestrian over 29 attempts, besides a bubble screen to WR Brian Tyms on the next pass play in the drive after the 41 yard bomb FAMU’s signal caller almost exclusively challenged DSU’s secondary down-field instead of opting for shorter routes, and will have bigger statistical performances if he continues to gel with the receiving corps.

The true stars of the night were on the defensive side of the ball, with Senior Demarius Folsom leading the way. His 6 tackles (3 solo, 1.5 for loss) along with a sack and 29 yd INT return proved vital in nearly shutting out the DSU offense. Delaware State’s offensive line simply couldn’t handle the pressure from FAMU’s front seven, and the spread formations they ran didn’t assist the O-line in giving Elko any comfort in the pocket.

WILD BLITZ MOMENT OF THE GAME: On a screen pass attempt by DSU in the 3rd quarter, the ball missed its target (HB Travis Tarpley) and proceeds to become a hot potato, bouncing of the helmet of a DSU O-Lineman and dribbling off the mitts of a FAMU D-Lineman. The football finally careened into the breadbasket of its original desired destination HB Tarpley, who casually scampered up the middle of the field to gain one of the few first downs in the game for the Hornets.


FAMU has bounced back from early season losses well with its trip to Atlanta and its convincing win over Delaware State. FAMU’s D was alert and active against DSU, which is a good sign heading into Homecoming Week.
