Alabama A&M head coach Connell Maynor gives remarks about his quarterback Aqeel Glass at the Southwestern Athletic Conference's media session for the coaches. Glass set the Division 1 passing single game passing record of 462 yards against Texas Southern University in Houston, TX.
"He went over 3,000 yards in only nine games this season, and he had another great game. He just continued to be Aqeel Glass. You know, he got some great weapons to get the ball to and offensive line is still improving.
They, they continue to get better and when they give them time, he can pick you apart with those weapons that he has. And he threw his 100th career touchdown Saturday night. So he joined an elite club of quarterbacks that throwing for 100 touchdown passes in the career.
And that's a great milestone and I'm glad we was able to get a W once he accomplished that, that, that milestone. So he's had a tremendous season and tremendous career, and we're gonna hate to see him go."
