Towson football coach Rob Ambrose said there's some 'mojo' in locker room

Tigers feeling better after back-to-back wins lift them to 2-2 heading into Colonial Athletic Association portion of schedule

Saturday’s 31-20 victory over visiting North Carolina Central lifted Towson to a 2-2 record, marking their first time at .500 since the beginning of the season.

The win also injected some much-needed confidence into the team, coach Rob Ambrose said Monday during his weekly conference call arranged by the Colonial Athletic Association.

“These are college students with college-student problems and injuries,” he said. “Everybody’s got problems. So it’s about managing them as best we can and moving forward. But there’s a little bit of mojo in the locker room that things are moving in the right direction, and we know why.”

Back-to-back wins over North Carolina Central and Delaware State have helped Towson put losses to Central Connecticut State and West Virginia in the rearview mirror. The 2-2 mark is an encouraging sign, but Ambrose said the end of the season is the best indicator of a team’s development.

“It’s what your record is at the end of the year,” he said. “It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. I’m really, really happy with how these kids are working. They’re just working to get better, and they’re doing it together. That’s a sign of good things to come. If we can stay healthy enough and keep this up, we should be in good shape.”
