Meet the Cajuns----Effrem Reed
What's the one thing you are going to miss about playing for Dutchtown HS?
"Friday nights. Everybody always say Friday nights are amazing and that's the truth. I am going to miss my town and my teammates. We have been playing together since we were about 6 years old. I am really going to miss my team."
Do you have a favorite pro team?
"Yeah, I like the Pittsburgh Steelers."
Do you have a player you model your game after?
"Yes sir, I really liked to watch Emmitt Smith when I was growing up. He wasn't the biggest player either, but he got the job done. That's the way I am. It's all about heart with Emmitt, and its all about heart with me."
Do you have a favorite artist or song right now?
"I am listening to Drake a lot right now."
What is your favorite food?
"Chitterlings, I just love Cajun Food."
Have you decided what you are going to Major in yet?
"Yes sir, I am majoring in Kinesiology."
What was your favorite thing about your visit to UL?
"Coach Hud. I had heard so many good things about him. Then when I got down there everyone was on the same page. The guys on the team told me that they have not worked that hard since they have been there. I want to be a part of that."
If you had one message for the Cajun Nation, what would it be?
"I am coming down there to work hard. I am going to work hard everyday on and off the field to make you proud. I am going to work hard to get us to a bowl game and maybe even further than that. I am going to do everything I can to get better everyday."
