Local DB Visits Cajuns

The Northside High football program has had a history of producing quality athletes from the Lafayette area. Which athlete is the latest to visit Louisiana's Ragin'Cajuns.

The Northside program lost seven All-District athletes from last season's playoff squad; including current Ragin'Cajun defensive back Adrian Breaux. But this season's team has several college prospects, including LB Jacarde Carter and DB Quincy Willis. The 6-0,185-pound Willis recently visited UL unofficially during the Kent State football game. The Cajun RedZone spoke to the Northside senior about his unofficial visit.

"I was supposed to arrive around 4 pm and meet up with my grandfather, but he was late and it was running pretty hard," said Willis. "We were going to meet with some of the other athletes coming in before the game, but my grandfather was late and we didn't have time to meet up with the others."

Quincy played with current Cajun DB Adrian Breaux last season, what has he told Willis about the Cajun program?

"I haven't spoken to him much, because we don't see each other or speak because of football," stated Quincy. "But I've seen the indoor practice facility, weight room and the new playing turf at the 7-on-7 camp this summer."

Willis missed the Ragin'Cajun prospect camp, but did attend one local football camp this summer.

"I couldn't make the Cajun camp this summer, but I did attend the Tulane camp at STM," said Willis. "I didn't run that well at that camp, but I did some other things pretty good."

What does Willis think about his hometown university and its football program?

"UL is a quality university academically and the football program is improving. I really like the facilities, but I haven't talked much with the coaching staff about the program."

How would Quincy Willis describe his style of play in the secondary?

"I think I'm more of a physical defensive back, I love to hit people. We don't use the safeties to get after the quarterback, so we are usually in a cover two or cover three."

Quincy Willis currently has a 3.2 GPA, but has not taken the ACT yet this year.
