Southern notebook: Will Southern try to get Willie Quinn more involved? Yes, but it won't force it

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana -- In each of Southern's past two games, senior receiver Willie Quinn has been held in check.

How long will that trend continue? Maybe not long at all.

“Willie is always going to be targeted from us,” offensive coordinator Chennis Berry said. “We want to get him the ball, but (the other team has) coaches too. They’re going to try to take one of our better players out.

“We’ve got some things to make sure he’ll be able to touch it and get his opportunities.”

Lately, those opportunities have been reduced.

Alcorn State limited Quinn to season lows in catches (three) and receiving yards (60). The following week, Quinn managed just 20 yards on four catches.
