    Turbine,

    This guy had a pretty good career in the NFL.

    Todd Scott was an American football player who played defensive back for four different NFL teams. He went to the Pro Bowl after the 1992 season with the Minnesota Vikings.

    6th round selection by the Vikings in '91.

    Great that is the kind of info needed.

    I can't see him bumping Brian in 91 or Hollis in 92 but the Pro Bowl and a very good season happened in 93.

    So how do you see Scott and Brooks stacking up in 1993 or any other year?

    From what I remember, I don't think Brooks ever actually played much in the NBA. Scott definitely had a better American pro career than Brooks ever did.

    LOL. Lately it's been more like a sieve. Got a whole bunch of irrelevant stuff in there.

    BTW - I remember the first game at Cajun Field like it was yesterday. Then again, I have trouble remembering what I did yesterday.

    But I will be at the IPF on 2/4/2009 for the signing bash and hope to be at Lady Cajun Park on 2/6. That is relevant.

    If he led the league it was probably the ABA he had 427 assists in 74-75.

    Bo only played 1 year in the NBA and had 177 assists that year.

    I know do to losing the team may of our players went on to other schools. One was Fred Saunders, who played for the orangemen before a nice career in the pros.

    Believe Wilson went to Murray, can't remember the rest.

    THis is great. Has anyone ever did a lis of the major sports and UL athletics who played proffessional or were a metal winner in the olympics or disguished themselves such at Coach hennessey?
    NFL, NBA, MLB, WNBA. Hopefully it would include those who went on to another school based on circumstances. Red Cagle went to Army, (by the way he is from DeRidder and Chris Cagle the country singer is a decendant).

    One thing they I missed in one of my other posts, Ron Guidry did not graduate initially from U(S)L. So, again if someone compiles a master lists of sports figure, make that they attended here and were involved with our sports programs for a period of time.

    That was before my time. All his family lives or is from DeRidder. Chris Cagle, the singer, his Dad, Steve who i went to school with, his uncle, etc.

    Merryville, talk to Boomer about that DeRidder suburb. he goes there all the time.

    Born in De Ridder, Louisiana, he was one of eight children, including five brothers and two sisters. Cagle was named after an uncle, who in turn was named after the late Bishop Christian Keener of the Methodist church. He attended high school in Merryville, a small community about 20 miles southwest of De Ridder' According to local legend, he was known for getting off the school bus and racing it to school, a race that he quite often won. The football field at Merryville High School is named Keener Cagle Field in his honor.

    Turbine, guess we are both right. By the way I have a lot of snow i can sell you. have a great 2010.

    This is actually a pretty sweet who's-who quick reference. Acknowledging that you have already spent hours on the project, I have a suggestion. I think it would be even more interesting with a little more detail. Maybe the honorables could be taken out of the column and placed in small font under the main athlete for that year. With the extra column, you could separate the team from the accomplishment.
