#33 NC State Wolfpack: College Football 77 in 77


NC State Wolfpack quarterback Mike Glennon could leave his mark on the program. Other than Phillip Rivers or Russell Wilson, no one has put up some of the numbers that Glennon has. And it could seriously augment his NFL Draft stock. At 6’6″ NFL scouts will be checking him out.

Now if only the Wolfpack could develop a running game to go with their passing attack; then they could be ACC title game bound.

NC State has 3 McDonald’s All-Americans, including the smallest one: Tyler Lewis

Standing at just 5-foot-11 and 165 pounds, Tyler Lewis may not look like a McDonald’s All-American.  Put Lewis on the basketball court with any opponent, any size, and he’ll prove to be one of the nation’s best prospects.
“(Lewis) had a terrific senior season,” said Evan Daniels, a national recruiting analyst for Scout.com. “Oak Hill doesn’t play a soft schedule. He really proved himself on a big stage against a lot of big opponents.”
It’s a sizey task for the undersized point guard to battle with the nation’s best high-school players, and will only become more difficult as Lewis moves on to North Carolina State, where he’ll likely be counted on as the Wolfpack’s floor general.

#31 NC State Wolfpack: College Football 77 in 77

If you want to know who the second best team is the ACC Atlantic division is, read on. If there’s one team that will keep the Florida State Seminoles from reaching the league title game, it’s the NC State Wolfpack. The pack will miss dual threat QB Russell Wilson, the league’s runner-up for the MVP award last year, who moved on to the Wisconsin Badgers.

However, I believe in new 6’6″ starter Mike Glennon, brother of former UVA signal caller Sean Glennon. He’s not as mobile, but he’s got a strong arm and should benefit from having many of the OL starters back in place  for 2011.
