NC State quarterback Jacoby Brissett has really done a terrific job this season since he transferred from Florida in 2013. After sitting out that season, he came in with a chip on his shoulder and ready to prove that he can make the Wolf Pack offense a threat in the ACC.
NC State offensive coordinator Matt Canada believes that Brissett has helped bring a brand new winning attitude to Raleigh. According to Campus Rush, Canada said that Brissett has his offense focusing on getting the job done and not on the statistical aspect of the game.
“All these stats that so many people are chasing, they don’t matter,” Canada tells The Inside Read. “Stats are for losers. Anybody can find a stat like you’re the best second-and-long team in the nation. Who cares? You either win or you lose. That, to me, is what’s getting lost in the world of our game right now.”
Canada talked about Brissett and how he has done a terrific job this season. He is a far cry from the young guy he was in Gainesville. This season he has completed nearly 80 percent of his passes for 591 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions.
“It’s ridiculous how good he’s playing right now,” Canada says.
Brissett, who threw for 2,606 yards and 23 touchdowns against five interceptions in 2014, has the Wolf Pack looking like a real threat in the ACC Coastal Division. No matter what happens this season, Brissett has the pleasure of knowing that he has brought an entirely new attitude to NC State for future players can look forward to having.
