Thirty-four players saw action on offense in Army’s 43-10 season-opening win over Georgia State Saturday.

Senior right guard Dean Powell played the most snaps (60).

Sophomore tight end Josh Lingenfelter and sophomore fullback Tyson Riley made their first career starts.

Fullback snaps were split between five players from seven to 22 plays.

Six players made their college debut: freshman slotback Laquan Veney, center Jackson Filipowicz, guard Sam Barczak, tackle Simon Dellinger, guard Beau Lombardi and tackle Ben Koch.

Stats of the week: Not sure how this is completely figured out but Army’s quarterback rating for the game was 445.80. Christian Anderson and Jemel Jones became the first Army quarterbacks to throw a touchdown pass in the same game since Ahmad Bradshaw and Chris Carter against Lafayette on Oct. 15, 2016. Will need more time to research the last time against Division I-A opponent.
