Mississippi State football should keep an eye on these opposing players
Southeastern Louisiana isn’t as talented as Mississippi State, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t players that the Bulldogs shouldn’t have to account for. The Mississippi State football team should still watch out for some Lions.
Like these three guys. MSU should watch out for these three guys:
Keep an eye on these three Southeastern Louisiana Lions
- Eli Sawyer – He’s not the most proven quarterback ever. He’s far from being the most dynamic quarterback ever. But Eli Sawyer was pretty good for Southeastern Louisiana in 2022. He didn’t take all of the Lions’ snaps, but Sawyer threw for over 1,600 yards with 11 touchdowns and just a single interception. On top of that, Sawyer completed 62% of his passes and averaged a pretty respectable 7.7 yards per attempt. He managed all of that as a freshman. That’s not bad.
- Rodeo Graham Jr. – This man’s name is incredible. Just simply and truly incredible. Also worth noting, it seems like he’s going to get some interesting opportunities this season. The Lions lost a lot of their production at running back, so Graham should likely get a few more carries this season. The 6-0, 205-pound running back will be interesting to watch as he faces the Bulldogs. Mississippi State has a stout defensive front and there’s a lot of talent in the trenches for the Bulldogs.
- Maurice Massey – Someone is going to be catching passes for Sawyer and it’s likely going to be Maurice Massey. At 6-3 and 195 pounds, Massey is far from being undersized and he could actually have a frame that causes problems for the Bulldogs. Massey is young, but he’s a big target and caught 40 passes for 525 yards and four touchdowns a season ago.
