Diamond In The Rough: Kam Aucoin, Iota High School

Kam is a 6’3”, 200 pound Junior from Iota High School in Iota, Louisiana. He is a ball hawking Safety that can also be aggressive in the run game. As a junior he led his parish with 5 TFLs the most by any player from the DB position. He has an 18 ACT score and a 3.2 GPA.

So tell me about yourself Kam, when did you start playing football?

I started playing when I was in 7th grade at False River Academy. I didn’t really play much before then.


Did you play any other sports growing up?

Yes sir, I played baseball and football


Tell me, what do you love about football?

I love being that guy, that’s running the show. I love making the play that puts us in a better position to win the game.


What have you learned from playing football, so far?

You should never be scared, and just go out there and have fun. It can take your mind off other stuff if you focus on football and try to not focus on some of the outside stuff that maybe going on around you.


What type of player do you see yourself as?

I like to think of myself as a leader, I try to lead by example. I think I’m the most vocal on the team about when it comes to being a leader.


What do you think your strengths are?

My size and speed definitely. I’m about 6’2, 6’3 and about 190, 200lbs. I ran a 4.6 40 too so that’s pretty good.


And your weaknesses?

I would like to improve my skills at quarterback, I don’t think I’ve reached my full potential there and I’d like to keep improving.


What kind of student are you? What would your teachers say about you?

I do all my homework and I’m attentive in class, my teachers would say good things about me I think, I don’t really get in trouble in class, and I do my job while I’m in there.

Have you attended any camps yet?

I haven’t been to any camps yet, no sir.


What would you like to major in in college?

I’m undecided about that right now, but I’ve been looking at radiology, because it seems like a good job, and I’d be helping people out a lot.


Are you looking forward to playing in the Louisiana Gridiron Football Bowl Game?

Yes sir, very much looking forward to it.


What would your friends, teammates, coaches say about you?

That I work hard, that they believe in me. That I’m trustworthy and have a great work ethic. We’ve put in a lot of work together and that they can put their faith in me. That when I say I’m going to do something I do it.
