All season we plan on breaking down various plays from each NC State football game, and helping us with the Pack Pride Film Session will be local high school coach James Johnson.
Johnson is currently in his second year at West Montgomery (NC) High School where he is the offensive line coach and run game coordinator. Previously he spent two seasons as head coach at West Stanly (NC) High School where he coached NC State junior defensive tackle B.J. Hill. Johnson also was on the staff at Richmond Senior (NC) High School for ten years, including five seasons as defensive coordinator, prior to taking over at West Stanly.
Johnson coached NC State redshirt junior Dakwa Nichols while at Richmond Senior.
The tailback wheel appeared to be a big part of East Carolina's gameplan versus NC State in Saturday's game. The biggest completion came on third-and-seven in the second quarter when East Carolina was able to re-take the lead from the Wolfpack.
We take a closer look at how NC State attempted to defend the play. What could the Wolfpack have done differently? What went wrong? What type of coverage was NC State in?
We answer those questions and much more!
