    Good: Logan Smothers, QB

    Giving the Gamecocks a spark on offense, Smothers’ ability on the ground has proven to be necessary as he continues to adjust to the offense in a passing sense. Smothers is as fast as they come and he appears to understand what the offense needs of him as he’s taken over.

    Great: Quae Drake, LB

    The UL-Monroe transfer has dominated at all three levels of defense for Jacksonville State. Drake is a bully when he rushes the passer and drops back incredibly well in coverage. Run defense is the name of his game, but he’s stepped up his play in every facet this season.

    Grand: Larry Worth, S

    Watch the film and you’ll spot Worth all over it on defense for JSU. He’s recorded two sacks, an interception, a forced fumble, and 16 total tackles from his hybrid linebacker/nickel alignment. He’s been all over the field.

    Wonderful: Clay Webb, LG

    The scouting notebook is full of highlights from Webb, both on the ground and in the passing game. Webb’s been immaculate in pass protection and an absolute mauler on the ground, clearing massive holes and wide-open rushing lanes.
