SPRINT FOOTBALL | Red to Take On Quakers On the Road Friday Night

Print More


On the surface, it may seem like not a lot has changed about the Cornell sprint football team since it lost to the University of Pennsylvania last season. Save for a couple of additions and losses, the current Red may appear to be just like the 2013 team that allowed the Quakers over 500 yards of offense. But dig a little deeper and many differences become clear.

“We’re a really close team. We play really hard for one another,” said sophomore running back Kevin Nathanson. “This year in particular, we’re very close. I just think, in my mind, this is what separates us from other teams.”

Sophomore cornerback Ryan Jackson echoed this sentiment, noting positive change within the defensive line.

“Last year we were all coming from different places, so we hadn’t worked together as a defense,” he said. “It’s a cohesive defensive unit this year.”
