Texas Back Has Cajuns on List

The Cajun football staff has been recruiting Louisiana and Florida hard, but Texas remains fertile ground for college football prospects. Hidden gem in Texas has Cajuns on short list.

Joseph Maxey's 2008 season was cut short by a hurricane, but the 5'10, 185-pound back still found a way to rush for over 500 yards and collected 200 yards in pass receptions. Maxey spent much of the summer working on his strength and speed, while showcasing his skills at college football camps.

First heard of Louisiana…

On visit to Louisiana….

Current academic status…
