Football: Cajuns Start Out Fast In Opening Day Of Fall Camp - Practice Schedule Included
LAFAYETTE – Head coach Mark Hudspeth officially welcomed 105 players to camp as the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns football team reported for fall practice in the morning before holding its first workout on Sunday at the Ragin' Cajuns Practice Facility.
After players officially checked into the dorms and held team meetings, the Ragin' Cajuns hit the field for an energetic 19-period workout that saw a refresher course in the team's offensive and defensive packages.
"I can say this honestly, but today did not look like a day one," head coach Mark Hudspeth said. "I thought the energy level was the best we've ever had. There was some execution out there that looked like day one stuff, but if the energy and enthusiasm stays at the level it was at today, we'll correct the mistakes."
Jordan Davis and Andre Nunez took the majority of snaps during the opening day with Dion Ray and Jake Arceneaux also directing the offense.
"Jordan and Andre both threw the ball exceptionally well today," Hudspeth said. "Our wideouts had a good day, our running backs ran well and our defensive backs flew around to the ball. There were a lot of positives."
Louisiana will work out on Monday at 9:15 a.m. and work out in full gear for the first time beginning on Thursday. The Ragin' Cajuns will conduct three scrimmages during fall camp with full scrimmages set for Aug. 12 and Aug. 19. All practices and scrimmages are open to RCAF and Quarterback Club members at the $1,000 level or above.
The Ragin' Cajuns officially open the 2017 season on Sept. 2 against Southeastern Louisiana at Cajun Field. Louisiana will also play host to Sun Belt Conference opponents ULM (Sept. 23), Texas State (Oct. 12), New Mexico State (Nov. 18) and Georgia Southern (Nov. 25).
Season tickets are available by calling the Cajundome Ticket Office at (337) 265-2357 or on-line at RaginCajuns.com/tickets.
