LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) – Saturday was the Ragin’ Cajuns last home game of the season.
And for some players it’ll be the last time they play at Cajun Field.
“This will be a game they’ll remember for a long time,” said Head Coach Mark Hudspeth.
Saturday, the Ragin’ Cajuns entered the field for their last home game of the season.
As the seniors ran out of the tunnel for the last time, they were greeted by their teammates as well as their family.
“Whether he has one tackle or 15 tackles we’re always proud of him,” said Sharese and Norman Lightfoot, parents of senior Tremain Lightfoot.
The crowed cheered, the seniors looked around one last time and they celebrated their last win at Cajun Field.
“Us seniors want to leave to this team that no matter what happens we’re going to go out there and fight and we’re going to give it our all,” said senior Linebacker Otha Peters, “I just feel overwhelmed with joy just that all the hard work we done put in is starting to show.”
As this chapter comes to a close, both the players and coaches know they will never forget this moment.
“It’s surreal that it goes by so fast,” said senior Quarterback Anthony Jennings, “It was a quick ride just for this season but it’s one I’ll remember forever. all these fans that rally behind this team and all these teammates and coaches youll never have this team together again. It feels good to get that W on senior night and go away with these seniors victorious.”
“This will be a game that they’ll remember,” said Hudspeth, “and our fans will remember and these seniors will remember. what a way to go out in your last game at Cajun Field against sort of one of your biggest rivals in a great college football game. I couldn’t be more proud of this group.”
