ASU Hornets hope one win can soon lead to others

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Alabama State coach Brian Jenkins brought his family into an excited and jubilant locker room area after the Hornets’ 41-21 win over Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Saturday.

The Hornets (1-4, 1-3 SWAC) finally have a “1” in the win column. Jenkins said the team handled its early-season adversity very well.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the way these guys represented the university,” Jenkins said. “We had some hiccups and they could’ve easily hung it up, but the pride and the character they displayed is first-class.”

Saturday’s post-game scene was far different from the atmosphere after the Hornets blew an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter to Texas Southern the week before.

Hornets quarterback Quinterris Toppings said the change in attitude began with a good week of practice before Saturday’s triumph.
