Chemistry test: Southern is using offensive line familiarity to its advantage during a dominant run in SWAC play

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- Southern senior right guard Anthony Mosley knows he can trust senior center Terrell Lee, because he knows his grandmother makes the best “ooey gooey cakes.”

He knows he can count on junior right tackle Skyler Prol to have his back, because he has stayed the night at the Prol family home.

“It’s like I know these guys — I personally know them,” Mosley said. “You can play for somebody when you personally know them, you know their background and where they came from.”

Mosley, Lee and left guard Jamal Boulden, all fifth-year seniors, have been playing next to one another — and starting — for most of the past three years. Prol is in his second year as a starter and his fourth year with the program.

“We’ve played a lot of snaps together, so we have good chemistry,” Boulden said.

The bond they’ve formed is showing on the field this season.
