Redemptorist High Athlete Getting Looks

Redemptorist standout Deuce Coon created a lot of excitement for wolves from the quarterback position in 2008. But the 5-11,175-pound athlete will likely play the wide receiver at the next level.

Deuce Coon showed last season that he could be an elusive athlete in the open field; most of that threat came from behind center at quarterback position. Deuce will find himself behind center in 2009 once again for the Redemptorist Wolves, but his first offer has come at his projected college position wide receiver.

"Miami of Ohio offered me earlier this month," said Deuce. "They are my first offer, but I'm receiving interest from Illinois, Arkansas, Connecticut, UL and Arkansas St. as well."

Deuce recently attended the Scout.com/Fox Sports Combine in New Orleans to work against some of the top athletes from Louisiana and Mississippi.

"I wanted to attend the combine and show that I have the ability to play at the next level," stated Coon. "Some of the top receivers like Trovon Reed, Jarvis Landry and Levander Liggins competed at the combine, and I thought I was right there with any of those guys. Trovon Reed received most of the hype from the combine, but I thought I should have gotten more coverage then I received."

Deuce will have more opportunities to show off his athletic ability during summer, attending football camps and one more combine.

"I'm schedule to attend the Nike Rivals Combine in Houston next month," said Coon. "After the Rivals Combine, I'm going to schedule out some football camps like UL, Southern Miss. and some others that I'm looking at right now."

Deuce Coon knows a little about the Cajun football program, speaking with his teammate and 2009 signee Brandon Nash.

"Brandon told me some of the things he liked about UL football program," Deuce stated. "I haven't been to a game down there, but I've received their questioner and I plan on attending the prospect camp this summer."

Deuce Coon has maintained a 2.65 GPA in his core and took the ACT for the first time on April 4th. Coon is an athlete that the Cajun RedZone will continue to follow through the summer for Cajun fans.
