William and Mary enters Scott Stadium on Saturday looking to play the role of spoiler and pull off the upset. The Tribe comes in with skills and solid players on both sides of the ball.
Offensively, William and Mary is led by senior quarterback R.J. Archer. Archer played his high school football at Albemarle and graduated in 2005, before continuing his career with the Tribe. He spent most of his college career at wide receiver, but did start one game at quarterback in 2008. Against Villanova, Archer completed 21 of 37 passes for 307 yards. He's joined in the backfield by preseason All-American Jonathan Grimes at running back.
Defensively, Adrian Tracy leads the charge. This defensive end is also a preseason All-American and headlines a defense that is dominating with speed.
In all, 15 starters return from last year's club that finished 7-4. Click on the above video link to view our abbreviated scouting report on the Tribe. You can catch the extended version on Cavalier Pregame Live, presented by StellarOne Bank, Saturday at 5:00pm on WAHU FOX27.
