More on James Summers from the ECU athletics web site:
GREENVILLE, N.C. – For the 50,514 rain-soaked fans in sold-out Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium, Saturday’s rivalry clash with Virginia Tech could not have started worse.
“It was probably one of the worst college football starts in history,” junior wide receiver Isaiah Jones said. “But it’s not about how you start, it’s about how you finish. I know it’s cliché, but it’s true.”
And finish the Pirates did.
Down 14-0 after two turnovers less than eight minutes into the game, the Pirates roared back on the burly shoulders of backup quarterback James Summers to take a two-touchdown lead, then thwarted a last-gasp Hokie drive for a 35-28 victory.
Summers, stepping in for Blake Kemp with the score knotted at 14-14, rambled for the second-most yards by an ECU quarterback, finishing with 169 yards on 21 carries (Leander Green had 178 against Richmond in 1979). He also completed 5 of 8 passes for 110 yards and one score to go along with his two rushing touchdowns.
“I’m not surprised at all,” Jones said. “He’s a dual-threat quarterback and he’s really good.
“We’ve got two quarterbacks who can move the ball well and score, but tonight obviously James took the lead, took over the team. He didn’t hesitate. He wasn’t afraid. He got the job done. I’m really proud of him.”
