Q's Huddle Buzz - Vol. 3 No. 7Q's Huddle Buzz - Vol. 3 No. 7

WINCHESTER, Va. – Sophomore Qlyl Middelijn is in his first season of blogging about the football program. This week, Q recaps a big victory and looks forward to an important game Saturday in Washington, D.C.

Having a winning record is always a beautiful aspect of playing intercollegiate athletics. The Hornets came out strong last weekend against Guilford, giving the Quakers their first loss of the season. The kick return touchdown from Dieon DuPont to start the game set the momentum for the rest of the contest. We never let up, not one bit, and remained on top of their throats in the 47-31 victory.
Although we beat a tough opponent, we can't rest because every opponent we play for the rest of the season has to be viewed as a tough opponent. In the words of our wide receivers coach, Nick Oakley, tomorrow's game against Catholic is the most important game because it's the game we have this week.
We haven't won two consecutive games since coach Yoder took over, and we want that to change this week.
Catholic comes into the game with a 2-3 record and is 0-2 in the ODAC, but when we compete against the Cardinals we cannot go into it assuming it will be an easy win. Right now we are in the same situation as we were a few weeks ago after we beat Ferrum. We automatically assumed Bridgewater was going to be an easy game, and of course, it wasn't.
Our mindsets are different now. We are not the same team we was a few weeks ago, we are better, and we will continue to improve our skills and knowledge of our opponent in order to grab another W for our record.
Go Hornets!
