 Kedon Slovis, Southern California, Player News


  It's from that realization that Slovis opens spring focused on finding his stride ahead of a third collegiate season that could be his last before the NFL comes calling. While Slovis still led the Pac-12 in passing yards (1,921) and touchdowns (17), his development was notably stunted by the circumstances of the pandemic. The shortened season ended on an especially difficult note, as Slovis had three passes intercepted in the Pac-12 title game against Oregon, the last of which ended with him sustaining a shoulder injury. That injury has since healed, and Slovis should have no limitations this spring. The pertinent question now is whether that confidence has returned. "Even though I felt good and I thought I got to a place [in 2020] that would be sustainable for football season, it wasn't really a place that I felt confident as a thrower," Slovis said. "I think more than anything, confidence is everything." So this offseason, Slovis set about rebuilding his own. After training with the same local coach since sixth grade, Slovis began working at the 3DQB training facility in Huntington Beach, where Tom Brady, Drew Brees and other top NFL quarterbacks have fine-tuned their mechanics. - Los Angeles Times

  Kedon Slovis threw an 8-yard touchdown to Amon-Ra St. Brown with 16 seconds left for his fifth passing TD of the game, and No. 16 Southern California rallied from an 18-point, third-quarter deficit to beat UCLA 43-38 on Saturday night. UCLA took a 38-36 lead with 52 seconds remaining on Nicholas Barr-Mira's 43-yard field goal, but USC (5-0) answered quickly. Gary Bryant returned the kickoff 63 yards to the Bruins 43, Slovis connected with Tyler Vaughns on a 35-yard reception and St. Brown caught his second TD of the game on the next play. Slovis completed 30 of 47 passes for 344 yards with two touchdowns each to St. Brown and Drake London. Vaughns caught eight passes for 110 yards and Vavae Malepeai ran for 110 yards in the 90th Crosstown Showdown. The Trojans clinched the Pac-12 South title earlier in the day when Utah beat Colorado. - USC/AP College Football

  Kedon Slovis was eager to get back on the football field after USC's victory over Utah three weekends ago. The Trojans had won, but Slovis wasn't fully satisfied with his performance. "Not my worst game in the world, but I felt like we left a lot out on the table as an offense," the sophomore quarterback said. "So I was really looking forward to that Colorado game." The Colorado game, however, was canceled due to a COVID-19 outbreak among USC's offensive line. So Slovis' return was delayed a week. But in the end, it didn't matter. Slovis put together his best performance of the season on Sunday night against Washington State.

He completed a season-high 78.1% of his passes for 287 yards and a career-high five touchdowns. "I think that carried over to this week," Slovis said after No. 16 USC's 38-13 win. "With our situation up front, we knew we were going to throw the ball and we knew the looks that we were going to get that we were going to throw the ball as well, so those opportunities kind of presented themselves." The performance was a good reminder of what USC's offense is capable of when its star quarterback is playing up to expectations. - Orange County Register

  Shawn Seaman has seen Kedon Slovis throw countless passes since taking him on as a budding sixth-grade quarterback. But when they started throwing sessions last spring, Seaman preferred to go slow with his star pupil's arm. Just three months earlier, Slovis had suffered an elbow injury from overtaxing that right arm; it was no exaggeration to suggest USC's season rested on its recovery. As they gathered at a park near the quarterback's home in Arizona, Slovis kept pushing it. His arm, he told Seaman, had never felt better. The coach could see for himself. Physically, Slovis had never looked bigger. There was an extra zip on his passes. "The ball was just popping out of his hand," Seaman said. So much so that the primary target of Slovis' passes - his father, Max - wore through a pair of receiver gloves.

Through three games of his sophomore season at USC, that extra pop hasn't always been palpable. Some passes have wobbled. Others have been off-target or thrown into danger, leading some to wonder if something isn't quite right with his arm. But Seaman, who works as an electrical engineer by day, is incredulous of any such suggestion. Slovis' elbow, Seaman says, is fine. So are his mechanics. And his confidence. And any other aspect of his game offered up as reasoning for a less-than-sharp start. Southern California linebacker Kana'i Mauga (26) reacts after making a tackle during the first half. "What I've seen looked pretty normal," Seaman said. "I didn't see anything that would make me concerned at all. I just think people have latched onto something, and it's much ado about nothing." It appears that way on paper. Slovis has completed 70.7% of his passes through three games, one percentage point behind his rate from last season but still good enough for sixth-best in the nation. Only seven quarterbacks are throwing for more yards per game than Slovis' 323.3. - Los Angeles Times

  The great Southern California teams were known for their confidence. On the road against Utah, these Trojans took another step toward restoring the program's past glory. "We played with a swagger tonight, especially on defense," coach Clay Helton said. Kedon Slovis threw for two touchdowns and No. 20 USC smothered Utah in a 33-17 victory Saturday. Slovis completed 24 of 35 passes for 264 yards for USC (3-0, 3-0 Pac-12), but the Trojans' defense took centerstage, forcing five turnovers to stay undefeated and move into pole position for the Pac-12 South title.

"All week, our guys talked about playing like this was a bar fight. We played with a lot of viciousness and everyone was zeroed in," linebacker Kana'I Mauga said. USC's game plan from the outset was to stop Utah's ground game. "At all costs, stop the run," Helton said. "Once we did that, our pass rush forced throws that were interceptions, got sacks and fumbles. We were in the backfield all night." Utah (0-1, 0-1) was the final major conference team to make its 2020 debut after coronavirus cases scuttled its first two scheduled games of an already-delayed season. - Southern California/AP College Football

  Vavae Malepeai bulled his way through multiple tacklers for an 8-yard touchdown run with 25 seconds left, and No. 20 Southern California beat Arizona 34-30 on Saturday with another late rally. USC (2-0, 2-0 Pac-12) was outplayed by Arizona State last week before scoring two touchdowns in the final three minutes to win 28-27. The Trojans again had two late scoring drives to win a game they were outplayed in for most of the afternoon.

Kevon Slovis hit Erik Krommenhoek on a 6-yard touchdown, but Arizona (0-1, 0-1) marched quickly down the field for a 6-yard touchdown pass from Grant Gunnell from Stanley Berryhill III with 1:20 left. Slovis, off target early, completed four straight passes for 68 yards and Malepeai capped the 75-yard drive by carrying several Arizona defenders with him into the end zone. Slovis threw for 325 yards and a touchdown on 30-of-43 passing. Gunnell threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns for Arizona, which played its first game in nearly a year after last week's opener against Utah was canceled due to the coronavirus. - AP College Football

  Kedon Slovis won't catch anybody by surprise the second time around at Southern California. And it's not just because the unassuming quarterback who took the Pac-12 by storm last year is a whole lot harder to miss now with his extra 15 pounds of muscle. "He went from a young man to a grown man in a year," USC coach Clay Helton said with a smile. Slovis is becoming more than the unheralded teenager who produced the best season by a freshman quarterback in USC's voluminous history last fall. When the No. 20 Trojans finally begin their regular season Saturday morning at the Coliseum against Arizona State, Slovis carries both the weight of his responsibilities and the heavy expectations that gather on this program's best players.

His enlarged frame makes the burden look lighter - and you'd never know it anyway from Slovis' perpetually cool demeanor. "We just want to give our guys the opportunity to make plays, and it starts with me," Slovis said. "That's really the most I can do at this point, and what I'm focused on." Slovis projects a calm belying his 18 years, but he spent the extra-long offseason lifting weights, eating well, poring over video and assuming a greater leadership role. All kinds of tangible growth has happened since his impressive debut season ended with an injury in the Trojans' loss to Iowa in the Holiday Bowl, according to the coaches most responsible for guiding his journey. - AP College Football

  Slovis was an unexpected surprise, earning Pac-12 Freshman Offensive Player of the Year honors after stepping in for starter J.T Daniels who was injured in the season opener. Slovis, who graduated from Scottsdale Desert Mountain, threw for 3,502 yards and 30 touchdowns with nine interceptions and was so good that Daniels decided to hit the transfer portal rather than return to Troy. - Arizona Republic

  His elbow had finally healed. His arm was finally back to normal. But for USC's Kedon Slovis, normal would last all of one mid-March practice, before a pandemic intervened. The rising sophomore quarterback has been home in Arizona ever since spring practice was abruptly canceled, trying his best to maintain a shred of normalcy during a crucial offseason expected to propel him to prominence. Slovis still watches film with offensive coordinator Graham Harrell over Zoom. He still works out three days per week, doing what he can without access to a home gym.

He throws at a local park on the days in between, with his private coach, Shawn Seaman, at his side and his dad, Max, as his lone receiver. "It's not exactly an ideal situation," Slovis said. But as he anxiously awaits a return to his college football routine, Slovis resolved to spend at least part of his quarantine embracing the circumstances of a new world. So, last month, on his 19th birthday, Slovis bought an acoustic guitar. "I always wanted to play," he said. "With sports growing up, though, I never had a chance for lessons. I always kept it in my back pocket." - Los Angeles Times

  With college sports shuttered, his Trojans stuck in isolation and the status of next football season in flux because of COVID-19, Clay Helton is trying to focus on the silver linings. Late-afternoon walks with his wife, Angela. Extra time with their three kids. Beautiful sunsets from his balcony. The work of teachers everywhere. The wonders of the Zoom app. "Everything has a silver lining," the USC coach said. The panic over the upcoming season remains pervasive, as hard decisions on how to proceed post-pandemic approach in the coming months. Pac-12 Conference Commissioner Larry Scott said this week he hoped decisions on the season's start date might be made by May 31, when the conference's suspension of team activities is scheduled to expire.

Helton wouldn't speculate on the future of the season when reached by phone Friday. But while he considered what a return to college football normalcy might require, Helton did suggest that his team would probably need a "minimum of four weeks" of ramp-up before safely proceeding with camp in the fall. That ramp-up period, Helton said, has been a point of discussion on recent conference calls with Pac-12 coaches. Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly suggested a similar timeline with reporters this week, while Scott mentioned the possibility of a "longer-than-normal" training camp "to somehow accommodate for the fact that we've missed spring." - Los Angeles Times

  The last two No. 1 quarterbacks at USC stood side by side, observing from behind the fray as the first deep balls of spring soared from the right arms of Matt Fink, the returning redshirt senior, and Brad Aoki, a 5-foot-8 converted quarterback wearing a yellow No. 36 jersey. As spring practice opened at USC, with no assurance it would continue on through next month due to the rapid spread of coronavirus, Kedon Slovis and JT Daniels, the two presumably vying for the starting job, both had injury questions of their own, on a roster short on other options.

For Slovis, any doubts were quelled just a few minutes later, as he rejoined USC's first team offense and laced several throws that reminded why he was named Pac-12 offensive freshman of the year. After injuring his elbow in the Holiday Bowl, there was some concern over how healthy he would be for the start of spring. "I feel better honestly," Slovis said on Wednesday. "If anything, I've been working a lot in the offseason and developing hip flexibility and mobility. It takes a lot of pressure off my arm. My arm was getting pretty tired." Just to be safe, USC will continue to monitor Slovis' reps throughout camp. But the rising sophomore quarterback said he finally felt at full strength early last week. - Los Angeles Times

  2019 PAC-12 OFFENSIVE FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR (COACHES): Kedon Slovis, USC,...Slovis, a freshman from Scottsdale, Ariz., ranks eighth nationally, and first among all FBS freshman, averaging 294.7 passing yards per game.

  Freshman Kedon Slovis passed for a school-record 515 yards and threw four touchdown passes in Southern California's 52-35 victory over UCLA on Saturday in the 89th edition of their crosstown showdown. Michael Pittman Jr. caught two touchdown passes and Vavae Malepeai rushed for two scores as the Trojans (8-4, 7-2 Pac-12) wrapped up their regular season with their 16th win in the last 21 meetings with UCLA. Drake London and Tyler Vaughns also caught TD passes, and a school-record four Trojans receivers topped 100 yards receiving while USC survived a tumultuous second half at the Coliseum and eliminated the rival Bruins (4-7, 4-4) from bowl contention.

Slovis carried the Trojans to the Victory Bell with another landmark performance in his impressive debut season. He surpassed Matt Barkley's single-game USC records against UCLA and against any opponent in the fourth quarter while the Trojans racked up 643 yards of offense, and he also surpassed the school record for yards passing in a freshman season. A year after UCLA's Joshua Kelley broke the crosstown showdown's rushing yardage record, Slovis broke its passing record while leading USC to its 10th win in UCLA's last 11 visits to the Coliseum. Slovis also had his third consecutive 400-yard passing game - another first in USC's lengthy history. Dorian Thompson-Robinson passed for 367 yards with TD throws to Demetric Felton, Devin Asiasi and Chase Cota for the Bruins, who will finish with four consecutive losing records for the first time since 1921-24, shortly after the school was established in 1919. Asiasi finished with a career-high 141 yards receiving. - AP College Football

  Freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis will return from an apparent concussion to start for Southern California at No. 9 Notre Dame on Saturday night. USC coach Clay Helton made the announcement Tuesday night after practice. The Trojans (3-2) have had three starting quarterbacks in their first five games thanks to injuries, and the 18-year-old Slovis has missed most of the past two games. After being medically cleared to return, Slovis will get the shot to lead USC against the powerhouse Irish in the schools' famed intersectional rivalry game.

"There's not that much more you can ask for," Slovis said. "It's Notre Dame and USC...They're a good team, obviously one of the best teams in the nation, but Coach Helton is going to put together a great game plan for us." Slovis got hurt on a heavy hit during the opening series of USC's win over then-No. 10 Utah on Sept. 20. He sat out of a loss at Washington on Sept. 28 for the Trojans, who had last week off. "He does not look out of form to me," Helton said of Slovis, who threw to receivers during the Trojans' week off. "He looks really good, and we'll continue through the week. Today, I thought he was very decisive with his decision-making. So hopefully that continues and he carries it to South Bend." - AP College Football

  Not many freshmen get to climb the stepladder, hold up the sword and lead the Southern California band in a postgame victory party at the Coliseum. No Trojans freshman quarterback has ever had a debut start like Kedon Slovis, who turned a tough matchup against Stanford into a celebration of his burgeoning talent. Slovis passed for 377 yards and three touchdowns in a commanding performance, and USC rolled to a 45-20 victory over the No. 23 Cardinal on Saturday night. Slovis went 28 of 33 and set the school record for yards passing in a freshman's first start as the Trojans (2-0, 1-0 Pac-12) rallied from an early 14-point deficit to beat the Cardinal (1-1, 1-1) for the third time in the California private schools' last four meetings. - AP College Football
