As Coach Billy Napier and our Louisiana squad get things rolling with Spring Camp, the Cajuns will have their eyes set on winning another Sun Belt Conference title.

After last year’s spring camp got canceled due to COVID-19, there is newfound energy and appreciation within this Ragin’ Cajuns group.

Bringing in an influx of new coaches to Napier’s staff, all of the attention will be focused on the defensive side of the ball. With a new linebacker’s coach, cornerbacks coach, as well as a new safeties coach, there has been a huge shakeup on that end of the ball.

With Patrick Toney returning for year two as the defensive coordinator, it gives him the ability to teach these new coaches the ins and outs of what is expected from them each week.

Offensively, the Cajuns have replaced former offensive coordinator Rob Sale, who joined the New York Giants coaching staff last month. Coaches Michael Desormeaux and Tim Leger will serve as co-offensive coordinators for the Cajuns this season.

Ragin’ Cajun fans will get a glimpse of what is to come in the 2021 season on April 22 as our Louisiana team is set to play their spring game.

The Vermilion and White Spring Game will be held at Cajun Field with the kickoff set for 7:00 p.m. where fans will get the chance to see the adjustments our Cajuns have made from last season to now.

Veteran leadership will be on full display for the Cajuns as third-year starting quarterback Levi Lewis will be looking to lead Louisiana to another historic season alongside a multitude of weapons at his disposal.

One of Lewis’ key targets returning will be star receiver Kyren Lacy, who finished the 2020-21 season with 28 receptions, four touchdowns and 364 yards receiving. One of the most efficient receivers in the conference, Lacy made quite the impression during his freshman campaign, putting the country on notice. Lacy will look to follow his stellar true freshman season with an even more spectacular sophomore run.

Cajun fans will get their first look at Maryland transfer Lance LeGendre, who will be looking to earn the backup quarterback spot behind Levi Lewis.

LeGendre, a top ten dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2019, committed to play for the University of Maryland before entering the transfer portal after a short two-year stint with the Terrapins. The addition of LeGendre gives the Cajuns one of their largest recruits in program history as he was a four-star prospect coming out of high school.

With two star quarterbacks lacing up their cleats in what is set to be a thrilling spring game, Cajun fans have plenty to look forward to coming into next fall.

The Cajuns will have a revamped coaching staff to lead this team to another historic season as Levi Lewis looks to end his Ragin’ Cajun career in victorious fashion. With numerous talented players alongside him, Cajun fans are due for another incredible season in Cajun country.
