Offense Working To Find Consistency

Offense Working To Find Consistency

Southern Miss went through a tough Tuesday work-out as the continue preparations for Louisville. The Eagle offense has had some good moments, but has struggled to find overall consistency. After practice we caught up with Austin Quattrochi to talk about the offense and what they need to do to get on track.

Austin Quattrochi is looked upon as a leader by his coaches and teammates. In this current three game losing streak, he is one who they are counting on to help lead the way.

Practice this week, Quattrochi points out, is critical to getting things moving in the right direction.

"Practice went good today, we had a good physical Tuesday," he said. "We mainly just focused on the Louisville schemes and how best to exploit those and how we can be successful."

Success comes with being able to string drives together, something the Eagles have really struggled with so far this season.

"I think the most important thing is us all coming in and being on the same page," he said. "We have to listen to the quarterbacks and allow them to settle in and get in the flow of things.

"Really I have been trying to keep everyone positive. I'm letting them know we have a chance at this thing. Minus a couple of guys we still have a championship team in this locker room. There is nothing to panic about yet, and we still have the bulk of our conference schedule left to play."

Louisville comes in with a defensive minded coach who has done a great job in recruiting as well.

"Charlie Strong has done a great job," he said. "They give you a lot of looks. They are always blitzing and slanting. It is going to be a huge challenge for us to get a hat on a hat against these guys.

"We have four seniors up front and we are really trying to take the offense on our backs and give the quarterbacks more time to throw or creating more running lanes," he said. "We are just trying to take the team and lead the way. That is what we need to do at this point." Recommended Stories
