Cajuns Take Early Look at Sarazin

With New Orleans Bowl hero Brett Baer returning for his senior season as Louisiana's placekicker and punter, the staff is looking for a potential replacement in the 2013 Class. Dutchtown's Tyler Sarazin (6-4, 180) could be the multi-purpose kicker the Cajuns are looking for to replace him.

UL's 2012 Junior Day drew a large number of high school athletes at a number of positions. But kickers were not in large number at the annual event and Tyler Sarazin was the focus of Coach Rebowe and the staff. Sarazin talked to the Cajun Redzone about his impressions of the Ragin' Cajuns junior day.

"I really liked the coaches and the facilities over there," Tyler stated. "Coach Rebowe told me that they are going to recruit me because they need someone that is ready to replace Brett Baer, their senior kicker. They like my size at "6-4", and they want someone that can punt and kick. I plan on coming back in this summer to one of their camps."

Tyler was stuck behind a senior punter at Dutchtown last season, but he did put about 94% of his kickoffs into the endzone and nailed a 48 yard field goal in one game, garnering all district and all metro honors for the Griffins. The lanky junior talked about Brett Baer's game winning kick in the New Orleans Bowl.

"Yea, I watched that game and it was great," Sarazin noted. "From the camera angle, it really looked like he almost hooked it to the left, but it went through and that was exciting to see him run down the field afterward celebrating. It was a fun game to watch and a great win for them."

Right now, Sarazin has interest from Louisiana Tech, Tulane and UL thus far this spring. Those schools and other programs will have little to be concerned about in regards of his eligibility.

"I scored a 30 on my ACT test," Tyler stated. "I plan on taking it again because I want to keep my highest scores. I have a 3.9 gpa in my core subjects and I work hard keeping my grades up during the year. I hope that will help me get a few more looks from other programs as well."
