Durham Football: Duke and NCCU


Another fabulous Durham Football Season is here for Duke University and North Carolina Central University.  These Bull City teams are ready to "tackle" a new season

Head Coach David Cutliffe and the Duke Blue Devils Football Team
David Cutcliffe, the 2013 National Coach of the Year who has earned both ACC and SEC Coach of the Year honors in a distinguished career that includes the mentoring of Super Bowl MVP quarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning, was named Duke University’s 21st head football coach on December 15, 2007.  Cutcliffe is 40-48 (.455) in seven seasons at Duke and owns an overall head coaching ledger of 84-77 (.522).

NCCU Head Football Coach Jerry Mack and his 2015 MEAC Championship Team

A strong feeling of optimism surrounds North Carolina Central University heading into the 2015 football campaign. Fifteen starters return from a team that captured a share of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference championship and posted the most wins as a Division I-FCS program a year ago.

In 2014, under the leadership of rookie head coach Jerry Mack, NCCU football posted seven victories, including the program's first win over a nationally-ranked FCS opponent.   With a season as head mentor under his belt, Mack exudes confidence about the direction of the NCCU football program as he leads the Eagles into the next chapter with the motto "Leave No Doubt" in the forefront.

"It means that we don't want to have any regrets in anything we do," said Mack. "You never know when your last play is. You never know what is going to happen from game-to-game.  I use this reference with our team all the time – just because we had some success last year and we beat some people, does not mean you are going to get that victory the next year, because you have to play the game.  We are going to take it one rep at a time, one step at a time, and leave no doubt about anything that we do on and off the field. So don't take anything for granted."

Mack explained, "I don't want people to take it the wrong way and think that we are cocky and saying that we are going to win the championship, because that's not what it's really about. It's about taking one play at a time and making sure you leave no doubt about what you put forth on that field at that point and time."

"Our players are extremely competitive and they always play hard until the whistle blows," stated Mack. "What I want people to know when they play North Carolina Central is you're going to get a team that is going to play hard, that is going to give it their all on the field down-in and down-out. And when you get a group of young men that are playing hard, good things will happen."
 
Reflecting back, Coach Mack recalled, "When you look at our team last year, we were not overly dominant in offense, defense or special teams, but as a team we all played well. That's where we made some extreme strides."


When asked about the keys to a successful football season, Mack responded, "We have to execute well. We talk about starting, executing and finishing. We want to start games off extremely well, we want to start fast out of the gate.  We want to execute well, that means we want to be disciplined, we want to be a sound football team in all aspects of what we do. And we want to be sure that we are able to finish games. We want to learn from last year's mistakes and be able to close games out the way we're supposed to close them out. Those three things are very important to us. To understand the discipline, effort and passion that it's going to take every game to get that win."
