Friday Sports: Offensive changes coming for the Watertown Red and Black

WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - Change is in the air concerning the offense of the Watertown Red & Black as a player moves from running back to quarterback.

The Watertown Red and Black open the home portion of their 2019 Empire Football League schedule Saturday night at the Fairgrounds as they host Plattsburgh.

When the Red and Black take to the field looking to win their 2nd straight game after dropping 3 straight to open the season, they'll do so with a new signal caller under center.

Brennan replaces starter Jared Hendricks, who has struggled in the first month of the season.

The veteran running back has seen short stints at quarterback during his dozen years with the team and says he's ready to step in to help get the offense back on track.

Coach George Ashcraft says the change was necessary after the team only managed to score a combined 58 points in the first 4 games of the 2019 season.

The Red and Black play Plattsbugh on Saturday. Kickoff set for 7 PM at the Alex Duffy Fairgrounds.
