More mature Lyles has command of JSU offense

JACKSON, Mississippi -- When you watch JSU senior quarterback Brent Lyles operate during practice, he’s perpetually in charge.

Like a traffic cop, he’s making hand signals and calling out orders — making sure everyone is lined up and the right protection is in place.

Once the ball is snapped, he has good speed, runs to daylight and can make all the throws.

It’s part of the reason he’s considered the front-runner to win the starting quarterback job, despite the crowded depth chart at that position.

The competition is fierce, but Lyles, Jarrad Hayes, Jordan Williams and freshman Tavis Williams are apparently taking it in stride.

“Off the field, we’re a tight group of guys,” Lyles said. “I think we’ve all taken the approach of just ‘May the best man win.’ ”
