Louisiana Ragin Cajuns cornerback and return specialist Eric Garror again received honors for his Special Teams work by the Louisiana Sportswriters’ Association today.
Garror, a Mobile native, returned a punt 69 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter against South Alabama this past Saturday at Cajun Field. The return put the Cajuns up 7-0 early, however, they would fall 20-17 on a game-winning field goal by Diego Guajardo.
The special teams touchdown was Garror’s third of his career, which tied him for the program record with former Cajun Todd Scott. It was also Garror’s second punt return touchdown in 2022. The fifth-year senior is already the school’s record holder for punt return yards.
This is the fourth LSWA honor this season for Louisiana, with Chandler Fields and Garror being honored in Week 1 while linebacker KC Ossai was honored in Week 2.
Garror and the Ragin Cajuns will return to action on Wednesday, October 12 when they travel to Huntington, West Virginia for a primetime Sun Belt matchup with Marshall. Kickoff for that contest is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
