Golson confident in teammates, eager for A&M challenge

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze threw out a lot of names, some involving position moves, to replace strong safety Trae Elston in the first half against Texas A&M.

Cornerback Senquez Golson, who’s interception sealed the Rebels’ win against Alabama, believes more light will be shed on that topic in the hours to come.

“I’m not sure who’s going to be in his spot. Probably figure that out tomorrow at practice,” Golson said at Monday’s presser. “It will be a big adjustment, but I’m pretty sure whoever is going to be there we’ll have them ready to go.”

Golson says his confidence extends to guys like sophomore David Kamara and freshmen C.J. Moore, C.J. Hampton and Kendarius Webster.

All could be affected in the plan whether that’s moving to Elston’s spot or getting more playing time because someone else has moved there.

“Everybody in our secondary I’ve got complete confidence in. I’m sure they will be ready to play,” Golson said.

The Ole Miss defense had a solid game in holding Alabama to almost 200 yards below its average through four games and in holding the Tide’s offense to one touchdown.

Golson says A&M will represent the biggest test for the Ole Miss secondary.

“We’re excited to play a game like that, maybe 40 or 50 passes a game (for A&M). That’s about our first true test for the secondary. We’re excited about the challenge.”

Ole Miss leads the SEC and ranks third nationally with 10 interceptions. Golson has four.
