Louisiana Ragin' Cajun defensive lineman Justin "Juice" Hamilton is enjoying football, and life, right now.

The senior from Natchez, Mississippi is one of the top defensive linemen in the Sun Belt Conference on the football field, who is also more than capable of lassoing some cattle off of it.

Last year, Hamilton was named a second-team All-Sun Belt Conference selection.

Back in July, Hamilton was one of four Louisiana players named to the Lombardi Award Watch List, which is given out annually to the top lineman in college football.

Even better now, Hamilton is a proud father of a son this season.

A 6-foot-2, 310-pounder, Hamilton is part of a senior class that has won three-consecutive New Orleans Bowl games, and are looking for an even better 2014 season
