Over the past few years Breaux Bridge LB Korey Louis has lived in the shadow of big brother Lamar Louis at LSU. But this summer, Korey is well on his way to creating his own path to playing college football by attending a number of prospect camps. His latest camp experience was right here in Lafayette with the Ragin’ Cajuns and after impressing the staff was offered by Louisiana Head Coach Mark Hudspeth.
“I wanted to come to camp and show them what I can do,” Louis stated. “I wasn’t sure what they were thinking, I just focused on just trying to do my best in every drill and compete. I felt I had a good camp, but you never know what coaches are thinking. After the camp Coach Stringer was just kind of messing with me and he asked me to go over to speak with Coach Hudsepth for a few minutes. Coach told me he would like me to become a member of the Ragin’ Cajuns family when he told me about the offer. It was great to get that offer from them right here in my own backyard.”
Korey Louis’s summer won’t end here in Lafayette, he has several more camps in mind along with playing 7-on-7 football with his teammates.
“I will probably attend a camp at Mississippi State,” Korey said. “And I’m going to attend a LSU camp in July as well. We started playing 7-on-7 at STM every Tuesday against other schools like Acadiana High, New Iberia High and STM. We also are doing our summer workouts at school during the week, so its been busy for me this summer.”
“I attend one of Louisiana Tech’s camps in Denham Springs,” Louis stated. “I’ve also been to one of Tulane’s camps and Coach Johnson keeps in touch with me. The LSU coaches keep up with me as well and I speak to them with I hang out with Lamar sometimes. I’m interested in seeing how the camp with go at Mississippi State if go up there.”
The Cajun Redzone will follow Korey Louis through the summer and during the football season.
