Southern camp buzz: Chennis Berry brings the juice, Quentavius Monday brings the burns

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- BRINGIN’ THE JUICE: Offensive coordinator Chennis Berry is almost always the loudest guy on the field, but he was especially vibrant at Thursday’s practice. From start to finish, Berry was either encouraging good play or vocally pointing out the bad, but he was always at the 100 mark on the energy meter. He kept it going after practice was over, taking the offensive linemen over to run sideline-to-sideline sprints for what seemed to be his idea of fun. Speaking of the offensive linemen, Berry has not neglected his positional duties there because he’s coordinating the offense. He watches that group in particular very closely.

NO CASE OF THE MONDAYS: Southern held an entertaining practice segment Thursday pitting cornerbacks against receivers and tight ends in one-on-one man coverage. Arguably the most impressive performer in the period was freshman wide receiver Quentavius Monday. The Atlanta native beat All-SWAC corner Danny Johnson over the top for a 40-yard touchdown on the first play of the period, burned Andre Augustine on a deep out route on his second rep, then torched Elijah Allen on a post to go 3-for-3 in style.
