Recruiting: Catholic-New Iberia’s Trey Amos QB commits to Ragin’ Cajuns
The UL Ragin Cajuns are gaining steam heading into the ’19 football season by adding to their future. The coaching staff has secured 15 pledges for the 2020 signing class, the latest coming from a standout in that region.
Catholic New Iberia’s Trey Amos is a read option quarterback ticketed for the cornerback position once he reaches campus in Lafayette.

The 6-foot, 173-pounder is a tremendous athlete who won the Class 2A state title in the long jump with a 22′ 9 3/4″ leap the past May. He also runs a 11.4 hundred meters and runs a leg on CNI’s 4 X 200 relay team.
Amos unofficially visited UL on July 31st to confirm what most figured he already knew – it was the place for him. He also attended Baylor’s camp and visited South Alabama on another unofficial visit. Amos considered offers from Nicholls, Northwestern State, Arkansas State, La. Tech, South Alabama, ULM and Southern.
Amos has shined as a dynamic signal caller who has had huge performances for the Panthers running the Wing-T offense including a 313-yard effort on the ground in a Division III semifinal shootout win at Country Day.
The defending state champion Panthers came up with the key plays late to prevail 57-54 before an overflow crowd at Wenzel Field.
As a defender, he is smooth in transition and shows good break on ball. His explosiveness and anticipation of the throw should serve him well. Amos will be a three-year starter this season at Catholic.
