LAFAYETTE — After completing record-setting senior seasons, a pair of Louisiana-Lafayette teammates have accepted invites to play in one more college game before taking on the next level.
Quarterback Terrance Broadway and defensive lineman Christian Ringo will both participate in postseason bowls with the goal of enhancing their stock with NFL talent evaluators. Broadway will play in the Medal of Honor Bowl this weekend, and Ringo will play in the College Gridiron Showcase in Arlington, Texas, on January 31.
Broadway is currently going through practice in Charleston, South Carolina, for the Medal of Honor Bowl, which will be played at Johnson Hagood Stadium on the campus of The Citadel.
A starter for the majority of the last three years for the Ragin’ Cajuns at quarterback, Broadway said he is working exclusively as a quarterback at the Medal of Honor Bowl.
Broadway finished his career as the Cajuns’ all-time leader in total yards, passing Jake Delhomme in the Cajuns’ loss to Appalachian State in their home finale.
He was also named the Most Valuable Player of the 2014 New Orleans Bowl in the Cajuns’ 16-3 win against Nevada, throwing for 227 yards and a touchdown while completing 83.8 percent of his throws.
Ringo set the Cajuns’ single-season sack record on the second-to-last play of the New Orleans Bowl, when he brought down Nevada quarterback Cody Fajardo to give him 11.5 sacks on the year.
He was named a First Team All-Sun Belt Conference player after leading the SBC in both sacks and tackles for loss (20.5) this season.
Ringo and teammate Corey Trim signed with New Orleans-based NFL agent Martin Fischman. Fischman also represents former Ragin’ Cajuns Justin Anderson and Darryl Surgent.
