Hey UL students, you ever wanted to play football for the team but not have to worry about Coach Hud yelling at you? Well, have we got a deal for you!

All current Ragin' Cajun students will have the opportunity to participate in drills with the UL football team this Thursday, August 27th during the first ever Student Appreciation Practice at Cajun Field.

Gates will open at 3:00pm and all UL students will be admitted free with a valid University ID. The event is all part of Welcome Week, as classes start today.

Head coach Mark Hudspeth and the team invite students to watch practice from the sidelines and then participate in various drills and activities.

Students will get the chance to enter the stadium just like the Ragin' Cajuns entrance prior to all home games. They will also have the chance to participate in light drills with the team, including kicking field goals, receiving punts and kickoffs and catching passes.

This is a good time to remind students that they can get free regular season tickets to all Ragin' Cajuns home games. The home opener is September 12th against Northwestern State.
