Four key offensive players


ULM Hawkeye

T.J Fiailoa – OG

The offensive line will be Evans’ best friend this season and no one better to secure his safety than All-Sun Belt third team member and preseason All-Sun Belt Second-Team member, T.J. Fiailoa. Fiailoa is back for redshirt junior season after having a dominate redshirt sophomore campaign that saw him give up only 1.5 sacks in 373 passing plays.

Fiailoa even graded out perfect in three games.


Caleb Evans – QB

Senior quarterback, Caleb Evans, comes back for his final season poised to become a historic Warhawk. The Mansfield, Texas native is already in the top 10 in seven passing categories for the Warhawks, including passing yards, passing touchdowns and completion percentage. Coming off of a season that saw Evans pass for 16 touchdowns, 2869 passing yards on a 61 percent completion, the bar is set high for the season.


Brandius Batiste – WR

The biggest question mark on the offensive side of the ball is wide receiver ever since Marcus Green left for the NFL and RJ Turner transferred to Texas Tech. The receiver to step up for the losses is redshirt junior Brandius Batiste. The Roanoke, Louisiana native is coming off a season that saw him splitting time at both receiver and returner, Batiste even scored his first collegiate touchdown.


Austin Vaughn – RB

A balanced offense is the best kind of offense and like receiver, there’s a hole at running back after Derrick Gore left for the NFL, that hole will be filled by fifth year senior, Austin Vaughn. Vaughn was the third leading rusher for the Warhawks behind Gore and Evans. Beyond that Vaughn had the third most carries and touchdowns for the Warhawks this year.
