Fans from rival schools will always have their fun with their friends from that "hated" college, and some will even pick on the players that have given their verbal to attend that university, but sometimes things can go too far. And in the case, of Quay Evans, that is exactly what has happened.

"A lot of the fans from other schools are saying I can not read, and that simply is not true," added the matter of fact Quay Evans.

Jerrell Powe had been the subject of much ridicule when it was reported that he could not read, when in fact, he could. Now some are trying to put that label on Quay.

"Me and Jerrell might be comparable on the field, but as far as in the classroom, I excel in there too. My GPA is right at a 3.0, and I am taking all of my core classes. I am just a couple of points from being on the Honor Roll. I have actually been on the Honor Roll before, and I will be back on it again. For some of these people to run off on the internet and start making up lies about me not being able to read is hurtful, and I just wanted to get it off of my chest and tell everyone out there that it is simply not true."

Quay's dominance on the field is unquestionable as he was one of three Mississippians, with DT Isaac Gross and QB Jeremy Liggins being the other two, named to Max Emfinger 1st Team Sophomore All-American team this season. He was also one of two sophomore's named on the All-State squad by the Jackson Clarion Ledger for all classifications.

Evans recorded 104 tackles and 14 sacks on the season.
