Southern looking for receivers to complement Willie Quinn, Randall Menard

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- The Southern football team has to replace the majority of its receiving corps from last season after losing five of the 14 Jaguars who caught a pass in 2015 and only two of those were wide receivers.

The explosive Willie Quinn returns as the leader of the group while Randall Menard is expected to step into the No. 2 option for quarterback Austin Howard.

Beyond those two, wide receivers coach Chris Coleman said he wants about four to six other players that can compliment the returning veterans.

When almost anyone in the program is asked who those young players could be, there’s one name that seems to be on everyone’s list.

“Curtlan Williams,” Howard said.

“Curtlan Williams is doing well,” said Southern coach Dawson Odums.
