Quinshon Judkins Named Conerly Trophy Finalist

Oxford, Miss. – The finalists for the C-Spire Conerly Trophy were announced on Monday afternoon, and Ole Miss superstar freshman running back Quinshon Judkins is included on the list. The trophy is given yearly to the best football player in the state of Mississippi.

Judkins has set the college football world on fire this season, racking up 1,171 yards on the ground and notching 15 touchdowns. The 15 rushing touchdowns are a new single-season record set in Saturday’s 30-24 heartbreaking loss to Alabama.

Judkins is now just 141 yards away from setting the all-time single-season record, originally set by Kayo Dottley who had 1,312 yards more than 70 years ago.

The other Conerly Trophy finalists are:

Jarveon Howard, running back, Alcorn State University

Connor Fordham, linebacker, Belhaven University

Patrick Shegog, quarterback, Delta State University

Shedeur Sanders, quarterback, Jackson State University

Moise Tezzo, wide receiver, Millsaps College

Marcus Williams, running back, Mississippi College

Emmanuel Forbes Jr., defensive back, Mississippi State University

Ronnie Thomas, defensive line, Mississippi Valley State University

Jason Brownlee, wide receiver, University of Southern Mississippi.

An Ole Miss Rebel has taken the trophy each of the last two seasons, with Matt Corral winning it in 2021 and Elijah Moore taking the honor in 2020.
