With a 5-1 record and number 19 ranking, the Salisbury University football team is eyeing another playoff appearance. Senior defensive lineman Tyler Paradysz has 2.5 tackles for loss and a sack for the Sea Gulls defense.
WBOC: How do you feel about this current stretch (of games) this month of October and how it lays out for the rest of the season?
Paradysz: We definitely do have a tough stretch coming up, but I know defensively we’re improving every week so we’re looking better and better and we’re definitely getting more confidence. We had a shut out against Southern Virginia, we should have had a shut against TCNJ. That six points, it still makes us mad about it. Last year the standard was 17 points. Now we’re really looking to like actually like shut people out because we know we can do it and we’re coming together as a team and defensively we are really improving every week.
WBOC: How do you feel about the defense progressing from week one?
Paradysz: We’re definitely improving every week, there’s still room for improvement. We’re still making a bunch of mistakes and we’re looking at film, we’re correcting them and every week we’re correcting it. With us being able to correct it, then giving the ball to our offense more, we’ll be able to put up more points and increase the margin of victory.
