Catching up with the Cajuns-Qyen Griffen
Like many of the Cajuns, the "5-11", 225-pound Qyen is working hard in the weight room and on the track to prepare to be a Cajun.
"I have been working very hard on and off the field and in the classroom. I am doing all the workouts the coaches said to do and plan on reporting in the best shape of my life."
One of the knocks on Qyen was in the classroom but Qyen wanted to clear up some rumors.
"I have been working very hard on my grades. I made my ACT scores and I am really close on my GPA. I promise you I will keep working hard and I can't wait to get down to Lafayette and start everything new and fresh. This is a new start for me and I plan on taking full advantage. I am 100% Ragin' Cajun."
The Cajuns have been keeping a close eye on Qyen and know where he stands.
"I talk to Coach Saunders and Coach Hud all the time. They know I can't wait to get down there and get on the field. I will definitely be there the first summer session. I want to let all the Cajuns fans know that I definitely feel a Championship coming on real soon."
In 2010 Qyen rushed for 2,670 yards and 40 touchdowns. He was named Mississippi's Mr. Football, 1st team All-State and was selected to play in the Mississippi/Alabama All-Star game. He helped lead his team to back to back 6A state titles and the 2010 National Title. He was named 1st Team All-State and 6A offensive player of the year by the Mississippi Association of Coaches.
