The Louisiana Ragin Cajuns received a couple more honors on Monday with seniors Joe Dillon and Jasmine Thomas being named honored with the Park Place Surgical Hospital Student-Athlete Comeback of the Year Award.
Dillon, who missed the 2018 season due to a hip injury, worked his way back onto the gridiron and secured Second Team All-Sun Belt Conference honors and Honorable Mention All-Louisiana recognition as a redshirt junior. Appearing in all 14 games last season, Dillon finished the year tied for sixth on the team with 45 tackles and led the team with 8.0 sacks, tying him for the fifth-most in a single season.
Thomas dealt with not only one knee injury that sidelined her for the 2018-19 season but also suffered another injury this past season. She appeared in 17 games for the Ragin’ Cajuns and played crucial minutes in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, including a nine-rebound effort in the quarterfinals against Little Rock.
