Dynamite Duo Powers Orange 'D'


SYRACUSE, N.Y. – As the top duo in sacks in the Atlantic Coast Conference last season, Orange defensive ends Alton Robinson and Kendall Coleman are an unlikely pair. Neither had a linear path to being the faces of the defensive line, but now it couldn't seem more natural.

After suffering a torn labrum during his sophomore season, Coleman wasn't sure he wanted to play football anymore, until his family "talked him off the ledge," and encouraged him to stay at Syracuse.

Good thing, because while being a steady presence on the defensive line, Coleman can also kick into high gear when it matters most.
