Football: Coach Russ Faulkinberry Tower Dedication Update - Photos and Dedication Remarks
On August 31, 2018, 5:30 P.M., family, friends, former players, athletics department personnel and fans gathered to dedicate the Ragin' Cajuns Tower to Coach Russ Faulkinberry, our winningest football coach.
Through the efforts of the Athletics Department, Lee Faulkinberry Granger, Jim Doyle, Brad Kemp, and Noah Morley, the Athletic Network is pleased to provide this chapter of Ragin' Cajuns football history so all may know about the outstanding coaches, players, and support staff who helped provide those wonderful representatives of the university - both on and off the field.

In Jim Doyle's remarks at the dedication, former players were reminded that Living Memorials are still being accepted and added to Coach Faulkinberry's Tribute. Those former players who have not yet done so are encouraged to email their LM to firstname.lastname@example.org so they may be part of Coach Faulkinberry's tribute.
Suggested captions for photos of the tower dedication (small groups) are sought and may be emailed to email@example.com - using either the Brad Kemp photo number or Dr. Ed Dugas number. Samples are in the photo gallery.
Additions to the Coach Faulkinberry Tribute are being processed and you will be notified of those. Thanks.
Please note the Spotlight Feature on the 1968 Championship Football team in the News Box and also the announcement has been added to the social media of Dupre' Library. Your assistance in sending this information to other Cajun fans and requesting that they email firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the Athletic Network newsletter email address list. Thanks.
