Cajuns Add Two Junior College Commitments
"I really liked what I saw during my visit, said Joseph." "The facilities are improving and I was familiar with Coach Jenkins. I had the opportunity to sit down and look at film with Coach Mason and I like the offense."
The 5-9, 170-pound Joseph earned All-Conference honors his first year in junior college and was also named the team MVP for the 2008 season as a wide receiver, punter, kicker and return specialist. Joseph had 35 receptions for 597 yards and 4 touchdowns on the year. But Andrew also returned punts and kick-offs later during the season.
"The coaches came to me during the season and asked me to return punts or kicks, Andrew said." "I wanted to do anything to help the team win. I worked really hard to improve my game during the season."
Joseph was contacted by several ACC programs coming out of high school, so why did he attend junior college instead of enrolling at a four year university?
"I needed to work on my academics and eligibility, Joseph stated." "I've worked hard to get myself in a position to leave school after this season. It worked out really good for me in the end.
The 6-2, 275-pound Tyrell Gaddies was a Katrina evacuee that prepped at Kennedy High in New Orleans before transferring to Eisenhower High in Houston Texas. Gaddies was named was named All-District 19-5A in 2006 before signing with Coffeyville Community College.
Tyrell finished his Freshman season with 4.5 sacks and 30 tackles from the DT position. Gaddies was also named Kansas Jay Hawk Conference Defensive Player of the Week for Oct. 25th, 2008. Tyrell had six tackles, 2 for loss, 2 sacks against Dodge City.
At press time, Gaddies is still short one class from graduating this fall and may have to wait until spring before completing course load to graduate.
