Young Eagles running backs Corey Clement, Wendell Smallwood shine in win over Colts

Clement, a Glassboro High School graduate, finished with 56 yards on a career-high 16 attempts, Smallwood, a Wilmington native, hit the same number on 10 carries and Adams made the most of his first NFL touches with 30 yards on six totes.

Clement and Smallwood had a combined six catches and 54 yards as well.

“Those guys are huge,” tight end Zach Ertz said. “We knew the type of players they are, that’s why no one was really fretting too much. … We’ve got a lot of confidence in those guys. Wendell hits the hole probably the hardest on the team, he’s a really explosive back, and Corey’s a really, really good football player.”

Familiar face hoping to help Glassboro football bounce back from recent struggles

Hagerty has been pleased with his first camp and believes his players are responding to him.

"I know how much Glassboro football means to the community and they know how much it means to me," he said. "I try to express that to them every day, and I think that's sparking some energy for everybody, which is nice.

"The kids have been buying in and it's a great group; I couldn't have stepped into a better situation. From the outside point of view it probably looks like it's going to be a long rebuilding process, but I think people overlook the amount of injuries there were last year. These kids have been well coached and it's not like I'm stepping into a program where nobody knows what's going on. We're healthy, knock on wood, and there's a lot of talent in the program."
