A ball hawk is defined as one who is skillful in taking the ball away from opponents, according to Merriam-Webster's dictionary.After collecting the eighth forced-turnover (five interceptions, three forced fumbles) of his collegiate career last Saturday against Indiana, it would be difficult to find a more appropriate label for Anthony Cioffi's on-field persona.
Junior free safety Anthony Cioffi has collected three interceptions through six games this fall, leading the team and tied for second in the Big Ten Conference in this statistical category.
Despite the surge of momentum snatched from last Saturday’s 55-52 comeback victory at Indiana, the Rutgers football team is far from being in a great state heading into what expects to be the tallest task of the season by far.With the No.
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Kyle Federico might have been the hero on his game-winning field goal to seal the Rutgers football team’s 55-52 comeback thriller over Indiana in front of 40,567 at Memorial Stadium, but the overall special teams play had its ups and downs over the course of the game.Before the senior place kicker split the uprights on his 26-yarder as time expired, two of his extra point attempts were blocked up the middle by the Hoosiers field goal defense.
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — When Devine Redding rumbled for a 66-yard touchdown run midway through the third quarter to give Indiana a commanding 52-27 stranglehold, he poured gasoline on the fire as a shootout exploded into a blowout.And at that very moment in time, the Rutgers football bursted into flames.After the Hoosiers opened up the third quarter with 28 straight points, the Scarlet Knights looked ready to just get the beating over with before hopping on a plane back to Piscataway.But then the unthinkable happened.
Chris Laviano fires a pass over the arms of outstretched Chase Dutra in Saturday's 55-52 comeback triumph over Indiana at Memorial Stadium in Bloomington. Laviano completed 28-of-42 for 386 pass yards and three touchdowns — all of which were to senior wide receiver Leonte Carroo.
If there is one positive to pick from the handful of questions surrounding the Rutgers football team as it enters the 2015 season’s halfway point, the focus is entirely back to what happens on the field.Following the reinstatement of head coach Kyle Flood on and the return of star wide receiver Leonte Carroo last Wednesday, the Scarlet Knights (2-3, 0-2) will be at the closest to full force and normalcy when they face off with Indiana on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
During the red zone drills in practice on Wednesday, Leonte Carroo speared a throw from sophomore quarterback Chris Laviano with his left hand while he tip-toed his way across the back of the end zone for a touchdown.The degree of difficulty of the one-handed catch cannot be understated. But no one cheered.
Senior running back Paul James broke off a 72-yard run against MSU, the longest play from scrimmage in 2015 for Rutgers.
Senior wide receiver Leonte Carroo extended his school record for receiving touchdowns (25) with three more scores in the 31-24 loss last Saturday to Michigan State. He averages a touchdown every 3.88 catches.
Robert Martin ate up a team-high 13 carries for 61 yards to aid the power-run aspect of Rutgers' running game last Saturday against Michigan State. The sophomore running back stepped up for the Knights to consume 8:01 off the clock on a 16-play, 91-yard drive in the fourth quarter. He nearly gave Rutgers the lead before an MSU defensive end clipped his feet on a first-and-goal from the nine-yard line.
Since his move to handle duties on third down, junior running back Justin Goodwin has provided a wrinkle catching passes out of the backfield.
As soon as Chris Laviano shoved the ball into No. 7’s stomach on the handoff, Robert Martin’s eyes were set on the end zone.With senior fullback Sam Bergen out of the backfield and junior Chris Muller pulling from his right guard position on the offensive line, the two paved the way as lead blockers on a counter to the left.On the play, a first-and-goal from the nine-yard line, the hole that initially opened up might as well have looked like the red sea in the sophomore running back’s eyes.But before he could get completely through the open space and past the second level of the defense, Demetrius Cooper spun around in an attempt to escape Muller’s block.As he fell to the ground with Muller tumbling down with him, the Michigan State defensive end’s body clipped Martin’s feet just enough to preserve the touchdown — and eventually the game.“I just know my linemen were executing that whole entire drive,” Martin said.
As a senior captain, Quentin Gause’s leadership is unquestioned. The well-spoken strong side linebacker provides a powerful vocal presence to the Rutgers football team’s locker room.But in his last time out on the field, Gause led by example.The Scarlet Knights (2-3, 0-2) have shot down the idea of moral victories from their latest loss, a heart-throbbing 31-24 defeat at the hands of then-No.
With six minutes remaining in the first half, the Rutgers football team held a tenuous 14-10 lead over then-No.
The significance of his contribution to the Rutgers football team cannot be calculated based upon wins and losses.Norries Wilson took over the Scarlet Knights (2-3, 0-2) amid unprecedented controversy and chaos in the program.Wilson went 1-2 in three games as head coach of the Knights.
As a leader on the field for Rutgers, junior defensive tackle Julian Pinnix-Odrick said the Knights need to overcome adversity following their 31-24 loss to No. 4 MSU. Pinnix-Odrick echoes Norries Wilson’s approach in leading Rutgers during a tumultuous time for the program.
While his record as interim head coach reads 1-2, Norries Wilson provided leadership and personality in a tough time to keep Rutgers together.
After three weeks away from the sidelines and the podium, Rutgers head football coach Kyle Flood made his first public comments Monday afternoon since receiving his full reinstatement from President Robert L.
