Lane Kiffin shares meme of himself sitting alone in bleachers watching Quinshon Judkins play in high school
On his 19th birthday, Quinshon Judkins had a massive running game in No. 15 Ole Miss’ 31-28 victory vs. Texas A&M. The freshman rushed for 205 yards and a touchdown.
After the victory, Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin shared a meme of himself sitting alone in the bleachers watching Judkins play in high school.

Kiffin’s courtship and ability to land Judkins has paid major dividends for Ole Miss this season. The 5-11, 220-pound Judkins has rushed for 1,036 yards and 13 touchdowns, while averaging 5.8 yards per carry. The Alabama native has rushed for at least 100 yards in 6 games this season.
On Saturday, Judkins scored the final points of the game for Ole Miss in the fourth quarter on a 1-yard run with 7:18 to go. Ole Miss amassed 530 total yards and didn’t commit any turnovers.
The victory was especially sweet for Kiffin after Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher threw verbal jabs at him in February due to the NIL discourse between Alabama and Texas A&M. The motivation was sincere and not just fabricated.
“It’s real. I don’t do coachspeak,” Kiffin said via ESPN. “Most coaches would say no. But when someone attacks you personally and calls you and your buddy Coach [Nick] Saban both clowns, you take that personal. I’m glad we won.”
Next up for Ole Miss is a home clash against No. 6 Alabama that will play a key factor in determining the SEC West champion.
