Draft Scout Joe Southwick News
11/10/12 - Joe Southwick threw three touchdowns and backup quarterback Grant Hedrick rushed for another and Boise State easily beat Hawaii 49-14 on Saturday. Southwick threw for 209 yards, including touchdowns to Matt Millers, Aaron Burks and Holden Huff. Hedrick replaced Southwick in the fourth quarter, well after the game was decided. He led the Broncos (8-2, 5-1 Mountain West) on a 56-yard drive of more than 9 minutes, capping it off with a 4-yard touchdown run. Jay Ajayi and Shane Williams-Rhodes each added rushing touchdowns and Boise State's defense also scored on a 25-yard fumble recovery. Hawaii (1-8, 0-6) had its best play on special teams, with Mike Edwards returning a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown to tie the game at 7-7 in the first quarter. Quarterback Sean Schroeder of Hawaii was benched midway through the third quarter. He finished with 100 yards and an interception, while taking four sacks. - AP Sports
09/29/12 - Joe Southwick passed for 311 yards and three touchdowns and Timmy Smith knocked down a fourth-down pass with two minutes to go Saturday to help No. 24 Boise State beat New Mexico 32-29 on Saturday. Boise State (3-1, 1-0 Mountain West) led by 25 points at half time after turning three Lobos' fumbles into 18 points. New Mexico (2-3, 0-1) turned two Broncos' second-half fumbles into touchdowns to help close the gap. The Lobos did not throw a pass in the second half until its final play, but baffled the Broncos with their triple-option offense. After New Mexico forced Boise State into a 44-yard field-goal attempt that failed, the Lobos took over on their 27. Three plays left the Lobos facing a fourth-and-4. New Mexico brought in starting quarterback B.R. Holbrook for the passing situation, but Smith batted away the toss that was intended for Lamaar Smith. Jay Ajayi had 118 yards and a touchdown on six carries for Boise State. - AP Sports
08/31/12 - QUOTE TO NOTE: "He knows the stuff. He knows our system inside and out. And like we've said, there's a lot there. And we'll always pare our system to play to our quarterback's strengths and how much a guy can actually learn and assimilate will dictate our game plans. But mentally, we can do as much with Joe as anybody we've had at this point." -- Coach Chris Petersen, on QB Joe Southwick - The Sports Xchange
08/31/12 - No. 24 Boise State travels to No. 13 Michigan State for another marquee season opener -- but the first without quarterback Kellen Moore. The Broncos beat Oregon, Virginia Tech and Georgia in the last three openers. This one could be the most difficult because of the youth of this Broncos team. Junior Joe Southwick won the starting quarterback job, beating out three younger players. He was the backup the past two years and possesses a detailed knowledge of the playbook. "I don't think the stage is going to be too big," offensive coordinator Robert Prince said. "He's ready for it. He's got his teammates' backs and they're going to play for him." Southwick leads an offense that features a sixth-year senior tailback, eight offensive linemen with starting experience and a loaded crew of wide receivers and tight ends. His emphasis: avoid turnovers and sacks. He was named the starter Sunday. "It feels great," Southwick said. "To finally be named the starter, it's a great privilege. There has been a great line of quarterbacks here for a long time. To be one of those guys, next in line, is just a great privilege, a lot of responsibility." - The Sports Xchange
08/27/12 - Joe Southwick has been chosen to start at quarterback for No. 24 Boise State against No. 13 Michigan State. The junior will make his first career start after spending two seasons backing up four-year starter Kellen Moore, who started more winning games than any quarterback in major college football history. Southwick is 40 for 54 for 400 yards with two touchdown passes in his career at Boise State. Broncos coach Chris Petersen announced the decision Sunday. Southwick won the job after a four-way competition in the preseason. Sophomore Grant Hedrick is listed as the backup and redshirt freshman Jimmy Laughrea will start the season a third-stringer. Freshman Nick Patti is expected to redshirt. The Broncos open the season Friday night at Michigan State. - AP Sports
