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.
NC State used a similar formation to score two touchdowns in the game against East Carolina. Sophomore tailback Reggie Gallaspy scored the Wolfpack's first touchdown with a 37-yard scamper, and sophomore quarterback Ryan Finley capped the scoring with a touchdown run in the fourth quarter.
Were they the same play? What were the differences? We take a look at both of those plays in this edition of Pack Pride's Film Session.
