Russell proves to be warrior for Bulldogs

It's been a long week and a long year for Mississippi State University senior quarterback Tyler Russell, but Bulldogs head coach Dan Mullen still believes he's a gamer.
After Russell's performance Saturday at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, Mullen thinks others should believe it, too.
Russell completed 18-of-28 passes for 263 yards with two touchdowns and an interception in MSU's 24-17 overtime victory over Southeastern Conference rival Arkansas. He only threw one day last week in practice, Mullen said, due to a shoulder injury, and he left Saturday's game after he took a hard shot and hurting his other shoulder while standing in the pocket and getting a pass off downfield.
"I don't know. People have probably given him a hard time this year," Mullen said. "It just shows what type of kid he is, how far he's come, who is in this program, what he's meant to this program and what he gives to this program is pretty special.
"For a guy to come out like he did and perform the way he did under the circumstances he did, I thought, was fantastic."
