Toppings getting chance to lead ASU offense

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- It has been a long journey to being the starting quarterback at Alabama State for senior Quinterris Toppings.

Toppings, an Eight Mile, Alabama native from Mobile County, had been serving mostly in reserve roles during his first three seasons in an Alabama State uniform.

Toppings didn’t start Alabama State’s season opener at UTSA, but had a career night in his third consecutive start for the Hornets in its home opener last Saturday.

Unfortunately, his career-high 323 passing yards came in a difficult 31-27 loss to Texas Southern which sent the Hornets (0-4, 0-3 SWAC) to their worst start in 17 years.

“The game plan was simple,” Toppings said. “Run the ball. Throw the ball. Move the ball up and down the field. I think we did it well. There were some things I could have done better as a quarterback.”
