2020 REVIEW

It’s hard to look too much into last season for NEO. They weren’t able to play in the fall, but did play 8 games in the spring, finishing 1-7 overall. They did finish their spring schedule with a 41-21 win over Blinn on May 15th. “Ending the season on a solid victory was the best part of the season,” says head coach Zach Crissup, “Our biggest challenge was just trying to fight through all the adversity.” It was a tough debut for Crissup, who is in his first season as head coach at NEO. It was just a weird year. I wouldn’t panic yet. It was a tough situation for all of college football, especially first-year head coaches at the junior college level.

2021 SEASON OUTLOOK

It’s hard to know what to expect from NEO this season. It’s really hard to know what to expect from any junior college football program after last season. A lot of players have arrived or moved on, some without playing a game. The Norsemen have a chance to be good defensively. They’ll need to take a big step forward offensively, after scoring more than 20 points just once in the spring. “Our only goal heading into the fall is to just get better every day,” coach Crissup says.
