11/13/17 - (ILB) - Bull Barge, Jr, 5-10, 225

Seven of Barge's stops came in the opening half as USA limited the A-State offense to only 118 yards and eight first downs before the break, while his efforts helped the Jaguars hold the Red Wolves to 66 yards rushing - one more than their season-low total coming into play - and less than half their season scoring average of 40.4 points per outing. - Sun Belt Football

Garvin's 39-yard touchdown pass to Sam Harris to put South Alabama (4-6, 3-3 Sun Belt) ahead 17-6 before the end of the third quarter. Hansen countered and led a quick, 79-yard drive in four plays that ended with an 18-yard touchdown toss to Christian Booker before the quarter ended to pull within 17-12. Each team scored TDs in the final quarter for the final margin. Hansen threw for 285 yards and two scores but had four interceptions. - AP College Football


10/23/17 - (FS) - Jeremy Reaves, Sr, 5-11, 205
OCT 23 SUN BELT CO-DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Jeremy Reaves, South Alabama (Sr., DB)...Senior defensive back Jeremy Reaves shared team-high honors with eight total stops in the victory over the Warhawks, and he had a hand in both USA takeaways that ended their first and last possessions of the contest. ULM advanced to the USA-1 yard line on its opening drive and was poised to tie the game when Reaves picked up a fumble and returned it 92 yards, setting up a touchdown and 14-0 lead instead on the Jags' ensuing snap. Then, with South up 10 points in the fourth quarter, the senior picked off a pass at the USA-33, allowing the Jaguars to run out the final six minutes of play and clinch the win. Reaves is now the sole leader on South's career interception list - the pick was his seventh since the start of the 2014 campaign - while the fumble return was the longest in school history. - Sun Belt Football

He later added his first career interception and chipped in a career-high-tying three tackles on defense to help USA record its first shutout since Oct. 16, 2010, and the program's largest margin of victory ever against an NCAA Division I opponent while giving up just 172 total yards. - Sun Belt Football


09/17/17 - (QB) - Dallas Davis, rJr, 6-1, 215

Gavin Patterson put the Jaguars on the board midway through the first quarter with a 19-yard field goal. Filling in for the injured Cole Garvin, who is out with an ankle injury, Davis finished 9 of 12 for 255 yards, including a 66-yard touchdown throw to Sa'Mory Collier. Davis also had a TD pass to Jahmmir Taylor. The Jaguar defense held Alabama A&M (0-3) to just 172 total yards and recorded its first shutout since 2010. - AP College Football


07/12/17 - (FB) - Maaseiah Francis, Jr, 6-2, 225
2017 Preseason John Mackey Award Watchlist: Maaseiah Francis, South Alabama,...Francis is projected to start for the Jaguars this fall, his second season at South. Last year, as the Jags' primary option at the position behind eventual NFL Draft selection Gerald Everett, Francis finished with 18 receptions for 261 yards and two touchdowns; both scores came after he led all players with seven catches for 146 yards at Idaho. That performance was one week after he replaced an injured Everett and made a game-high five catches for 36 yards as USA defeated Presbyterian. Francis - who hails from Lithonia, Ga. - also had two receptions for 28 yards at Arkansas State while posting a 26-yard catch in a win over Nicholls in the opening month of the season. Francis has been named preseason second-team all-Sun Belt Conference during the offseason by both Phil Steele Publications and Athlon Sports. - South Alabama Football


01/25/17 - (TE) - Gerald Everett, rSr, 6-3, 239
2017 SENIOR BOWL, TUESDAY: Another potential early-round pick who, unfortunately, did not measure up as well as expected was South Alabama tight end Gerald Everett, who came in at "just" 6-2 3/4 and 227 pounds after being listed at a more traditional 6-foot-4, 240 pounds for the Jaguars. Worse, Everett tied with the smallest hands of any pass-catcher invited to this year's game with his mitts measuring just 8 1/4 the same as San Diego State running back Donnell Pumphrey, who is just over 5-foot-8 and 169 pounds. - Rob Rang & Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

2016 ALL-SUN BELT HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES/MEDIA): Xavier Johnson (South Alabama, Jr., RB/RS),...In his third year with the program, Johnson continued to cement himself as one of the top all-purpose players in the Sun Belt. After appearing in 11 regular-season games, the Tampa, Fla., resident picked up honorable mention all-league honors for the second consecutive year after leading the Sun Belt in all-purpose yards (122.7) and ending the regular season just outside the top 50 nationally in that category. The 5-foot-11 running back is sixth in the SBC in rushing with 71.5 yards per game. Johnson averaged 5.4 yards per carry, which was tied for second-highest tally among the top 10 running backs of the league. - South Alabama Football

Jackson recorded a season-high 12 tackles during week three of the season at Louisiana-Lafayette. - South Alabama Football

The 6-foot-2 senior linebacker ranked in the top 20 in the league in both tackles for loss (18th - 9.0) and total tackles (T-20th - 80). Of his 80 tackles, 50 were of the solo variety, while Buchanan also recorded three pass break ups, one interception and one forced fumble to go along with being credited with a quarterback hurry. He was selected as the SBC Defensive Player of the Week after USA's season-opening win at Mississippi State. Buchanan will end his career ranked second on the program's tackles chart as he currently has 256 during his four-year career. - South Alabama Football


12/26/16 - (P) - Brandon McKee, Sr, 6-1, 194

Of his 44 punts, 24 were downed inside the 20-yard line (54.6%), while 14 went for 50 or more yards. McKee recorded a season-best punt of 74 yards against Troy and was twice selected as the league's special teams player of the week during the year earning the honor after South's wins over Presbyterian (11/21) and Georgia State (10/31). The senior currently holds the program's single-season mark in average and his 24 punts inside the 20 are second-most in a season, just four shy of the current mark. - South Alabama Football


12/26/16 - (WR) - Josh Magee, rSr, 5-10, 184
2016 ALL-SUN BELT SECOND TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): Josh Magee, South Alabama, Sr., WR, Communication,...Magee, who also earned second-team honors during the preseason, was the Jaguars' second-leading receiver closing out the regular season with 668 yards on 44 receptions for an average of 15.2 yards per catch. Magee also tied Everett for second on the Jag roster with four touchdown receptions. His 60.73 yards per game were third-most in the Sun Belt this season. - South Alabama Football


12/26/16 - (FS) - Jeremy Reaves, Sr, 5-11, 205
2016 ALL-SUN BELT FIRST TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): Jeremy Reaves, South Alabama, Jr., DB, Sports and Recreation Management,...After earning preseason first-team accolades, Reaves lived up to those expectations as the junior defensive back posted 77 total tackles, including 5 ˝ for loss, which was third-most on the club.
