No. 3 Dray Joseph, Southern (2010-13)
Like no. 5 on our list, no. 3 hails from Edgard, La and left Southern University as the school’s all-time leading passer. The thing that separates the two is the ring! Joseph made his first career start in 2010 against Alcorn State and passed for 394-yards on 26 completions and completed passes to 10 different Jaguar receivers. The Jags would drop the contest to Alcorn 27-20 but the world was put on notice about Dray Joseph.
Joseph would pass for 1,544 yards and 13 touchdowns while splitting time with JP Douglas as a sophomore in 2011. In 2012 Joseph was given sole control of the Jaguar offense and all he did was lead the conference in passing yards (2,511), passing touchdowns (25), and passing yards per game (228.3). As a senior, Joseph would absolutely assault defenses in the conference as he led the conference with 3,573 yards passing, 30 touchdowns, and averaged 274.9 passing yards per game while leading Southern to the 2013 SWAC Title which would be the school’s first since 2003.
Joseph was named the FCS Player of The Year by Heritage Sports Radio and was the BOXTOROW Offensive MVP. He would finish his career at Southern with 8,745 passing yards and 73 touchdowns.
