Southern wide receiver/return specialist Willie Quinn has been named the SWAC Special Teams Player of the Week.

Quinn did a little bit of everything Saturday against Alabama State, accounting for five touchdowns in the Jags 64-6 blowout against the Hornets.

The senior returned his 10th kick for a score on a 78-yard punt return, which tied the FCS record for most return touchdowns in a career.

He also had four catches for 178 yards and three touchdowns and added a 30-yard touchdown pass to top off an incredible performance.

Southern (1-2) travels to Huntsville, AL to face Alabama A&M (1-2)  on Saturday.
