Chandler Fields named starting quarterback for Cajuns

Louisiana football head coach Michael Desormeaux officially named Chandler Fields as their starting quarterback on Monday, Aug. 22.

Throughout the fall, Desormeaux mentioned how close the quarterback battle was between Fields and Fresno State transfer Ben Wooldridge.

Ultimately, Fields will lead the team against southeastern on Sept. 3rd.

Fields has been with the Cajuns since 2019 after a stellar high school career at Archbishop Rummel. The redshirt sophomore won the backup quarterback job in 2021 over Wooldridge and became Levi Lewis' understudy.

Now, Fields goes from behind the curtain to center stage, and he's ready for the spotlight.

“I've been practicing for three years,” Fields said on Aug. 4. “To be honest, I've never been the starter, so I'm stoked for this opportunity.”

“The competition was great all the way through it,” Desormeaux said. “He gives us the best chance to play good football. That's where we're at as a team, and we're going to move forward with Chandler.”
