Arkansas State's new Head Football Coach Hugh Freeze returned to his hometown of Senatobia…
The Breakddown: Quintavius Burdette
Senatobia ended 2010 with a winning season (6-5), but the team was disappointed with a first round playoff loss to Shannon. Quintavius rushed for 1,235 yards and 16 touchdowns to go along with 10 pass receptions for 102 yards and another score. Defensively, Burdette had 24 tackles, six pass break-ups, one interception and one forced fumble. Like most elite high school players, Quintavius does a little bit of everything for the Warriors. In addition to being his team's leading scorer and rusher, Burdette handled most of the return duties where he found the endzone twice. In an effort to increase his impact on the game and increase his touches, the Senatobia coaching staff has Quintavius lining up at quarterback this fall. Burdette is doing just enough passing to keep the safeties honest, but his game is all about grinding it out on the ground. Quintavius has very good speed and is very tough to corral once he gets into the open field. His versatility is perhaps his best attribute. Burdette has the ability to step in at any number of positions at Arkansas State and he reports that he is willing to do whatever he needs to in order to help the team win.
