Start Me Up South returns just 10 starters from last year's squad, the fewest since only seven came back from the program's first-ever bowl team in ; that fall, the Jaguars actually began the campaign with wins in three of their first five contests before falling one victory shy of returning to postseason action.
Entering Campbell's first season in charge of the program only one Jag offensive lineman had ever started a contest at the collegiate level, but this year USA is bringing back four-fifths of the group that opened the final six outings of including three individuals — Brian Ankerson, Hadon Merchant and Troy Thingstad — who started all 12 contests last year.
Mighty Minter With over 1, yards rushing the last two years rising senior Tra Minter enters the fall expected to carry the workload in the Jaguars' offensive backfield, but it's his versatility that has earned him more recognition — making three preseason watch lists and a trio of magazine's preseason all-Sun Belt Conference teams — than any other member of the program this summer.
In addition to closing in on 1, yards in kickoff returns in his career, Minter is the only USA running back to catch more than 20 passes since the program's inception, a feat he has accomplished each of the last two seasons after posting 23 for yards last fall.
Turner's Time Perhaps no Jag is more respected in the Sun Belt this fall than Turner, who is coming off a year that saw him set career highs for tackles 51 , stops for loss 10 and sacks four as he was a second-team all-league selection.
The rising senior was the top-rated individual from the program on SouthernPigskin.
Double The Fun Kawaan Baker has reached the end zone on 14 occasions over the last two seasons, which is not only most on the team during that span but the sixth-highest total on South's all-time list in the category. Baker, however, holds the distinction of being the only individual in program history to rank among the top 10 on the career record list in both rushing touchdowns sixth with nine and touchdown receptions tied for eighth with five.
Tested Thompson Arguably the most decorated high school recruit in the first plus years of the program's existence, Thompson has lived up to those expectations in some regard as he begins his senior campaign already tied for the school's career record with eight interceptions and the lone individual to ever return multiple picks for scores.
After sitting out , he came back last fall to set career highs with 34 total tackles and eight passes defensed. For more information about South Alabama athletics, check back with www.
