Bralen Trahan did everything for the Acadiana' Wreckin' Rams in 2016, and now he has a chance to shine in his hometown.

Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns took interest in Trahan, and rightfully so. Trahan was a star on defense, he broke huge plays on offense and special teams, and he even punted the ball at times for Acadiana. He did everything imaginable on the football field of the Wreckin' Rams, and he earned himself an opportunity to make plays in front of his friends and family.

After the end of his senior season, Trahan decided to take his talents to the Ragin' Cajuns, where he has the chance to become a big time defensive back. He took to Twitter to state his commitment.

"First, I want to thank GOD for allowing me an opportunity to compete at the next level. Secondly, I want to thank my parents, family, high school coaches, recruiting coaches, and ALL OF RAM NATION for the continuous support throughout these years. I've decided to continue my education and play football for the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. #HomeTeam #RaginCajuns #GeauxCajuns"


MVP honors at the I-10 Bowl All-Star Game, where he picked off two passes and returned a fumble for a touchdown. He's a star among stars, and he has a good chance of seeing the field early for Louisiana.

Whether it's on offense, defense or special teams, Trahan knows how to impact the game. He has a nose for the ball and a propensity to make something happen when his team needs it most. At the next level, he projects as a prototypical cornerback or safety, depending on how the Ragin' Cajuns want to use him.

Trahan joins other local stars like Erath's Elijah Mitchell and Catholic High-New Iberia's Ziyon Hill in the class of 2017. When talent like that stays at home, everybody wins.

If you never watched Trahan play, just take a look at his highlight tape. Plenty of coaches were drooling over his talents, but the Ragin' Cajuns locked him up.
