East Carolina Pirates FootballSchedule in 2014

The East Carolina Pirates are coming off of an exceptional 2013 season where they were one of the country's most prolific scoring teams, averaging over 40 points per game. The Pirates capped off a great season by winning the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl in St. Petersburg over the Ohio Bobcats, 37-20. The Pirates are joining the Big East Conference in 2014, and the new kids on the block are sure to have a bull's eye on their back when they start the season in their new conference. Junior quarterback Shane Carden is coming off of an incredible season, throwing for 33 touchdowns and over 4,000 yards. Carden will be back for another season in Greenville and the Pirates are expecting another brilliant season from the quarterback from Houston.

Pirates fans can't wait for their beloved student athletes to take the field at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium and their wish will be granted when North Carolina Central Eagles come to Greenville to take on the Pirates on August 30. College football can't start soon enough and when the students are back in school, the football team is ready to get back on the field. The Eagles compete in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and they would love to start off their 2014 season by stealing one from their cross state foes. North Carolina Central Eagles have one of the best players in the country donning the maroon and gray. Sophomore return specialist Adrian Wilkins led the FBS with 5 special teams' touchdowns, 3 on kick-off returns and 2 on punt returns. His spectacular speed must be seen in person and his exciting play will light up the field. Wilkins led the MEAC in all-purpose yards and he will only get better after his breakout season.

On September 20, the Pirates will welcome another in-state rival to Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium when the North Carolina Tar Heels of the ACC's Coastal Division. The Tar Heels finished the season in the middle of the pack in the ACC, but ended the season by winning 6 of their last 7 games including a victory over the Cincinnati Bearcats 39-17 in the Belk Bowl. The Pirates would love to take it to the Tar Heels and the fans in Greenville will be rooting them on all the way.


East Carolina Pirates Football Rivalries

The small state of North Carolina has many great college sports rivalries, led by the most famous one between the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Duke Blue Devils in college basketball. When it comes to college football, though, the rivalry between the East Carolina Pirates and the North Carolina State Wolfpack is definitely intense. The schools are separated by only 85 miles in the Tar Heel State and over the years the games have been very heated. As the first and second largest universities in the state, North Carolina State and East Carolina, respectively, know that they are constantly recruiting against each other for notable North Carolina high school athletes. The rivalry has at times been marred by incidents of stadium vandalism by fans, but luckily the rivalry lives on with the Victory Barrel being awarded to the winning side.


East Carolina Pirates Football NFL Players

The East Carolina Pirates have sent an impressive 63 players to the NFL and many of them have made quite in impact on the professional level. One of the biggest names of all is running back Earnest Byner, who gained over 2,000 yards in his time in a Pirate uniform. Though Byner was drafted in the 10th round of the 1984 draft, he played 14 years in the NFL. His resume is very impressive with 2 Pro Bowl Selections and a Super Bowl Championship with the Washington Redskins in 1992. Another former Pirate running back has made a name for himself in the NFL, making the Pirate family very proud. Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson is still running circles around defenders in the NFL and is one of the elite backs in the league. Johnson was not a coveted recruit when he came out of high school in Orlando, but he showed his talent and insane speed when he broke out as a senior at East Carolina, rushing for 2,940 all-purpose yards and an incredible 24 touchdowns. He was drafted in the first round by the Titans in 2008 and quickly made a splash, earning NFL Offensive Player of the Year in 2009 after rushing for an incredible 2,006 yards. Johnson is one of only 7 players in NFL history to break the 2,000 yard milestone. Other notable Pirates who have excelled in the NFL are quarterback David Garrard, quarterback Jeff Blake and defensive end Rod Coleman.
