'He balled out' Southern's defense remembers Lenorris Footman after Alcorn QB's big game last year

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- Blake Monroe was not eligible to compete in last year’s Alcorn State game, but he was there on the sideline when Braves starting quarterback John Gibbs went down with an injury on Alcorn State’s second possession of the game.

When his backup, Lenorris Footman, came in the game, Monroe admitted to feeling like that was probably a good thing for the Jaguars.

“But Footman just came in and went off,” Monroe said. “He balled out.”

That’s one way to describe what Footman did to Southern’s defense last season.

In mucky conditions that left the A.W. Mumford turf looking more like a mud pit than a football field, Footman carried the ball 16 times for 274 yards.

“Whenever he saw an open lane, he took it,” junior corner Danny Johnson said. “He scored some touchdowns.”
