Spotlight on Former Athlete - List of Honorees

Our rich athletic traditions were entrusted to the vision, hope, loyalty, and dedication of those former athletes. Each will forever be owed a debt of sincere gratitude. May God bless each of them and their families.

Anyone with information, materials, pictures, memorabilia, etc., about the university's former athletic program participants is requested to contact Ed Dugas at athleticnetwork@louisiana.edu  Thank you.

The Photo Gallery Link located on the left side of the home page at www.athleticnetwork.net contains over 12,000 pictures of former and current athletes and support groups. Just click on photo gallery and when the menu appears, click on the sport or support group you wish to view. The years of pictures posted for that team or group will appear and you may click on the year you wish to view. One click on a thumbnail picture or narrative and it is enlarged; a click on the enlarged photo and it reverts back to the thumbnail.

The Athletic Network seeks to post pictures of each team and support group for each year they represented the university.

The stories of the previous honorees featured in the Spotlight on Former Athletes have been moved from the News Page to the Archived News Page. Please click on the title of any current news story, then the Archived News link in the upper left to go to the Archived News Calendar.

The Spotlight on Former Athletes announcement has also been placed in the profile of each honoree, excluding the pictures and the story in posted in the Archived News in the month and year of the honor. Click on the headlines of any news story and when the story appears, click the Archived News link in the upper left. Once on the Archived News Page, click on both the month and year of the story, then click on the headlines for the full story, including any photos posted.
