WATCH: Frank Martin, A.J. Lawson discuss unknowns and injuries heading into season opener
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) — Frank Martin says that his peace, apart from his family, comes from knowing his team is prepared to win its next game.
After a weekend full of injuries and sickness, coach Martin doesn’t feel much peace with the Gamecocks season just two days away.
What was thought to be a minor knee injury will now sideline sophomore Keyshawn Bryant for approximately six weeks. Over the weekend, a cold-like sickness kept a handful of Gamecocks out of practice. Not exactly what coach Martin was hoping for in the days leading up to the season’s tip-off.
Today he and sophomore A.J. Lawson spoke to the media about some of the emotions and unknowns that come from opening a season with such a young team and so many unknowns surrounding it.
