The Richmond Roughriders dismantle the Atlanta Furious this past Saturday (5.20) at the Richmond Coliseum winning 82-14. Richmond was running two Quarterbacks in this game due to recent knee injury to starting quarter back Jimmy Laughrea.
Quarterback Mike Wilson #12 played the duration of the first half going 9/15, 164 yards, 4 touchdowns and an interception. Taking over in the second half was QB #6 Shawheem Dowdy finishing the game going 8/12, 82 Yards, 3 Touchdowns, and one interception as the Roughriders.
With the Richmond Roughriders battling to stay perfect this season and with a Championship looming on June 10th, they will need one of their two new quarterbacks to help carry the load heading into the championship game.
