Injures are shaping the plans for Louisiana football’s spring game on April 21st.

Billy Napier said after Thursday’s practice that the Vermilion and White game’s format will be a modified practice with a scoring system, but coach wasn’t real sure of the details yet. Coach told reporters he’d have a better handle on injuries and his plans next week. He did note that he does plan to have a more traditional spring game in future years.

Also speaking Thursday after practice were juniors Ashton Johnson and Deuce Wallace. Wallace is a former St. Thomas More standout and the son of former Cajuns quarterback Don Wallace. Deuce spoke openly about the challenges many walk-ons, like himself, face.

"I think the worst part about it is self doubt, feeling like you’re always looked past. But, and I think I can speak for all the walk-ons, we just keep our head down. We have the attitude that we’re unworthy and try to find some value any way possible," he said.
