The Wayne State University Warriors started the 2017 season off on the right foot beating Walsh University 28-9 on the road in North Canton, Ohio. Wayne State put up all 28 points in the first two quarters showing they have the ability to come out of the gate with a ton of momentum. Quarterback D.J Zezula was red hot throwing for 3 touchdown passes and 149 yards for the day. Zezula didn’t throw a single interception in the game and proved he is still one of the better passers in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Zezula did lose two fumbles in this contest so he has to improve a little bit in the ball security aspect of the game as a runner. However other than that D.J Zezula has been an outstanding leader for the Warriors and it’s a lot of fun to watch this kid operate. Romello Brown also had a great day for Wayne State rushing for 112 yards on the ground. With the one two punch of Zezula and Brown the Warriors offense can overwhelm defenses quickly. Brown had more carries than all the other GLIAC RBs had in week 1, so it’s obvious Head Coach Paul Winters knows he has a special player running the football and that’s why we are seeing Brown in a workhorse role. The third stand out for the “road warriors” (pun intended) was Darece Roberson. Roberson was spectacular in this ball game, he took advantage of the Walsh defense all day finishing with 95 yards and 2 touchdowns. On the opposite of the ball you can’t safe enough about Wayne State’s defensive output and mental toughness. The whole group was locked in for all four quarters and that’s the reason Walsh was only able to put 9 points on the board. Anthony Pitt led the charge for WSU contributing 9 tackles, while Dustin Carlin added 7 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 tackle for loss. In the secondary Ronny Bryant was sensational for the green and gold, he showcased his ball hawk skills with 2 interceptions. Wayne State will host the Indianapolis University Greyhounds in their next game, the Greyhounds are coming off a huge win against Grand Valley State University. The Warriors and Greyhounds will meet September 16th at Tom Adams Field kick off is slated for 6:00 P.M.
