Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun football team, who went 9-4 for the second-consecutive year, including a second-straight win in the R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl, was honored at the annual Senior Awards Banquet on Saturday night at the Cajundome Convention Center.

A total of 23 awards were given out, including five co-Most Valuable Player awards.

Sophomore quarterback Terrance Broadway was named the Offensive Skill MVP, after throwing for 2,842 yards and 17 touchdowns this past season, while running for another 769 yards and nine touchdowns, all while replacing the injured Blaine Gautier, who started the year behind center.

Senior cornerback Jemarlous Moten was tabbed the Defensive Skill MVP, after finishing second on the team with four interceptions. Moten was named a first team All-Sun Belt Conference pick after the season.

Senior offensive tackle Jaron Odom was named Offensive Lineman MVP. Odom started every game at right tackle, and played all but three plays during the year, earning honorable mention All-Sun Belt Conference honors in the process.

Senior Emeka Onyenekwu was named the Defensive Lineman MVP, after picking up first-team All-Sun Belt Conference honors. Onyenekwu had 42 tackles and 6.5 sacks this season.
