A&T’s Cohen Apologizes For Fumble, Vows Redemption

By Steven J. Gaither

North Carolina A&T’s Tarik Cohen went from hero to goat on Saturday as his fumble on the one yard-line away a sure touchdown and helped NC Central come up with a 21-14 win. 

The loss knocked A&T out of sole possession of first-place in the MEAC and ultimately cost his team an FCS Playoff bid. Cohen rushed for 203 yards and two touchdowns, but “The Fumble” will forever define the 2014 matchup between A&T and NCCU. 
And he knows it. The sophomore running back from Bunn, NC apologized for letting his supporters down and vowed to come back strong in an Instagram post Sunday afternoon. 

Cohen has been nothing short of outstanding in his short career at A&T. He’s rushed for 2,488 yards and 23 touchdowns in just 22 career games. A lot of players talk a big game, but Cohen is one of the few that has the stats behind him to back up what he says.
