A note from Norfolk State University about their FUMA recruit’s impact in the season opener
Fork Union Players Come up Big for NSU
Three former Fork Union Military players played key roles in Norfolk State’s season-opening 24-0 victory over Virginia State on Sept. 1. Freshman outside linebacker Deon King came off the bench to record five tackles, three for lost yardage, and a pair of sacks. Defensive teammate Shawn Fauntleroy Jr. also played key snaps along the Spartan defensive line, part of an effort which recorded the school’s first shutout since 2001.
In addition, offensive lineman Amardeep Singh helped the Spartans amass 340 yards of total offense, including 223 on the ground. NSU did not allow a sack in the opener.
Those three, along with fellow rookie linebacker Lamar Neal, should continue to make a big impact for the Spartans as they look to repeat as Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference champions.
