    39 < > 41



    Can anyone think of a former Ragin Cajun who wore number 40?

    OKay guys this is the Boomer

    --came to UL after being recruited by Coach Blanco---was a kicker for my first year and later played the rest for the remaining 3 years

    --fell in love with the whole deal and later coached for a number of years---Boomer name came not from football but when I used the name in the Natchez Blues festival playing and singing a lil NO R and B

    -I was born in 1945 and for me the original Baby Boomer!!!---I think that this university can become one of the great schools of the South---I will support and love it and back it till the day I die!!!

    -see you dudes at the Swamp!!!!

    Roy Williams wore # 40 from 1974 to 1976. He was a scatback from Orange, TX and was part of Augie Tammariello's first recruiting class. Was was extremely fast and also returned kick-offs for the Cajuns. I remember a play in 1975 at home against Northwestern were a ball was pitched to him on a sweep, he bobbled it, reversed his field and went 70 yards for a touchdown. I think Roy still lives in the area.

    Flew with the Thunderbirds once he finished playing at SLI (pretty sure it was after).
