EIGHT CAJUNS ON ALL-SUN BELT FOOTBALL TEAM

December 06, 2005 – Matt Hebert, Sports Information –

NEW ORLEANS � Winning a share of the Sun Belt title produced eight Ragin’ Cajuns on the 2005 All-Sun Belt team, as announced by the league office on Tuesday. It marks the most all-conference selections for Louisiana-Lafayette since 11 Cajuns were named to the 1995 All-Big West team.

The Sun Belt Co-Champion Cajuns were led by three players on the first team. Greg Hodges and Brandon Cox were each named first team offensive lineman, while Michael Desormeaux was on the first team in the all purpose slot.

Hodges and Cox led a Cajuns offensive line that produced a school-record 2,797 rushing yards and 34 rushing touchdowns. UL’s 254.4 rushing yards per game is seventh in the nation and the best average in school history. The Cajuns averaged 291.4 rushing yards per game in Sun Belt Conference games � crushing the league record of 245.1.

Desormeaux was elected in the all purpose slot for his combination of talents. The redshirt freshman began the season as the Cajuns #2 quarterback and as a regular on the Cajuns punt, punt return and hands teams. When an injury to starter Jerry Babb occurred in the Cajuns fourth game of the season, Desormeaux stepped in to run the Cajuns offense. In four starts, Desormeaux threw for 368 yards on 36-of-69 passing (52.2%) and ran 48 times for 351 yards (7.3ypc) and two touchdowns. He finished the season with 597 yards passing and 487 yards rushing.

Three players earned second team honors, true freshman running back Tyrell Fenroy, sophomore offensive lineman Jesse Newman and senior defensive end Eugene Kwarteng.

Fenroy was also honored as the Sun Belt’s Newcomer of the Year. The New Orleans area native took over as the Cajuns starter in the third game (only 16-58 yards through first two games). He was the catalyst for the Cajuns season-ending five-game winning streak, posting 622 yards and 10 TD’s (5.7ypc, 124.4ypg). Fenroy became the first Cajuns running back to ever gain 1,000 yards. His 12 rushing TD’s are the third most rushing scores by a true freshman in the nation. He is the only true freshman in school history to post at least two 100(+)-yard rushing performances � doing it five times. Fenroy finished second (Patrick Cobbs) in rushing ypg in conference play, with 109.4 ypg and 11 touchdowns.

Kwarteng won the Cajuns Top Defensive Point Award for defensive production in 2005. He tied for the team lead with four sacks (all in conference play) and led the squad with seven tackles for loss (6.5 in conference play). Kwarteng had two of the Cajuns school-record nine sacks at Middle Tennessee. He ranked sixth on the team with 43 tackles, 32 of which came in SBC play.

Junior defensive end Anthony Hills and junior cornerback Michael Adams landed honorable mention honors.

Hills tied for the team lead with four sacks and third with 4.5 tackles for loss. He led the squad with two forced fumbles.

Adams was fifth on the team in tackles and led the team with two interceptions, while adding a fumble recovery. He blocked two kicks, a field goal vs. FAU and an extra point at #2 Texas.
