Catching up with the Cajuns-Harry Peoples
As a college athlete, Harry is used to having to workout. But he is doing something extra in preparation to become a Cajun.
"I am doing a lot of extra running trying to get faster. I am also catching a ton of punts and kickoffs to make sure I never put one of the turf. I am also running all the routes to get precise in and out of my breaks. I have been talking to Coach Johnson, Coach Stringer, and Coach Hud...all the offensive coaches really."
Harry got a chance to watch his future teammates in action at the UL spring game.
"I love the spread. You can tell we are going to be wide open. They were getting the ball to a lot of people and I love that. The coaches tell me I am going to play in the Slot, at Tailback in the read option, return punts, and return kickoffs. I can't wait. I graduate this Friday and plan on trying to be in Lafayette June 1st."
Harry has a message for the Cajun Nation.
"I am going to work my rear end off to be one of the most exciting players you have ever seen. I have been compared to Reggie Bush in the past, but I will make sure that you guys are proud of me and see a leader on and off the field."
Peoples was named First Team NJCAA All Region XXIII and First Team All-State as a return specialist after accumulating nine touchdowns in 2010 at Holmes CC… Averaged 30.5 yards on kickoff returns with one TD (long of 89) and averaged 19.7 yards on punt returns with two scores (long of 86)…Caught 35 passes for 380 yards and two scores and rushed for 236 yards and four TDs on 60 carries.
