 Desmond Trotter, South Alabama, Player News


  Even without factoring in Bentley, South Alabama's roster contains plenty of Division I experience at the quarterback position. Trotter has started 13 games the last two seasons - including 10 in 2020 - passing for 2,737 yards and 19 touchdowns with just six interceptions. Trotter, a Birmingham native and the grandson of NFL great Ozzie Newsome, has taken mostly second-team reps this spring. In the Jaguars' scrimmages, he's a combined 20-for-35 (57.1%) for 241 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. "Desmond played the most of anyone in the room who is returning from last year, I have really seen him - especially in the last week - take off," Applewhite said. "We've been adding more stuff in our installation that fits his skillset, I've seen really seen him progress the last four to five days. I love his competitiveness; he has a good spirit and is a good teammate. There's a lot of work for all of us in the quarterback room to do, I can't wait to get around to June and July so we can take that next step." After his record-setting career as quarterback at Texas ended in 2001, Applewhite got his first big coaching break when Nick Saban hired him to be Alabama's offensive coordinator in 2007. - Birmingham News

  South Alabama has hired Indiana defensive coordinator Kane Wommack to take over its team. South Alabama announced the hiring of the 33-year-old on Saturday, making him the youngest current head coach in FBS. Wommack replaces Steve Campbell, who was fired six days earlier after a 4-7 season. Wommack, who is in his third season as linebackers coach and second as the defensive coordinator at Indiana, is a candidate for the Broyles Award given to the nation’s top assistant coach. He helped the Hoosiers lead the nation with 17 interceptions and rise to a No. 8 national ranking. - AP College Football

  Desmond Trotter tossed an 8-yard touchdown pass to Kawaan Baker with about seven minutes to play, helping South Alabama pull away in its Sun Belt Conference opener with a 30-20 victory over Texas State on Saturday. It was the Jaguars' first win at the new 24,450-seat Hancock Whitney Stadium, which was limited to 25 percent capacity. Trotter's TD pass gave the Jaguars a 27-20 lead. South Alabama (2-2, 1-0) forced a three-and-out on the Bobcats' ensuing series, and Diego Guajardo's 44-yard field goal with 1:09 remaining capped a 10-play, 4-minute drive.

Trotter was 18-of-22 passing for 187 yards. Baker finished with five catches for 43 yards. Carlos Davis ran for a season-best 113 yards for his third career 100-yard rushing game. Davis had a 1-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Jalen Tolbert had nine receptions for 91 yards and caught a 9-yard touchdown pass from Chance Lovertich that gave the Jaguars a 17-10 halftime lead. Brady McBride was 28 of 40 for 260 yards passing with a touchdown pass to lead Texas State (1-5, 1-2). - South Alabama/AP College Football

  South Alabama quarterback Desmond Trotter continues to recover from an early-season shoulder injury, Jaguars head coach Steve Campbell said during a radio appearance Tuesday. Trotter has started both games this season for the Jaguars, who are 1-1 heading into their Sept. 24 home game with UAB. The sophomore from Birmingham injured his shoulder in the season-opening win over Southern Miss Sept. 3, then aggravated it in the fourth quarter of last Saturday's 27-24 loss to Tulane. Trotter was pulled from the Tulane game at the end of the first quarter in favor of junior-college transfer Chance Lovertich, who helped South Alabama take a 24-6 lead in the third quarter. After the Green Wave cut the lead to 24-19, Trotter re-entered the game at the start of the fourth quarter, but re-injured his shoulder and left the field again. - Birmingham News

  Although nothing is yet official, all signs point toward sophomore Desmond Trotter winning the starting quarterback job over junior-college transfer Chance Lovertich. Trotter started the final four games of 2019 for the Jaguars, and threw four touchdown passes in a 34-30, season-ending win over Arkansas State. Campbell said that "Desmond is the 1 and Chance is the 2," though offensive coordinator Kenny Edenfield left open the possibility both could play vs. Southern Miss. "I like the way our quarterbacks are playing right now," Edenfield said. "I think Desmond and Chance both will play; they both had have a good fall camp. They're both ready to play and I think either one of them can get the job done for us." In three fall scrimmages, Trotter - the grandson of Alabama and NFL great Ozzie Newsome - has completed 23 of 41 passes for 281 yards and three touchdowns with three interceptions. Lovertich, who led Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College to the NJCAA championship last season, has completed 26 of 53 passes for 285 yards and three touchdowns with one interception. - Birmingham News
