LSU Coach Ed “Ba-Ba” Orgeron to be honored locally in February

LSU Coach Ed “Ba-Ba” Orgeron to be honored locally in February

A group of South Lafourche businessmen and former LSU and Tarpon football players have gotten together to hold Coach “O” Day for Ed Orgeron so his home town can proudly celebrate him being named head football coach of the LSU Tigers.

The event will be held at the Larose Civic Center beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday, February 17. There will be a banquet and program to honor Coach “O” and to also celebrate the 40th anniversary of the 1977 State Champion SLHS Tarpon football team. Members of that team are invited to attend the banquet and will be introduced while seated in a VIP section. During the program Coach Orgeron, who was an outstanding member of that 1977 team, will have his jersey retired.

Also, a special section has been set aside for LSU players and former players who will want to attend to cheer on their coach.

Plans are to have a time period set aside for Coach “O” to personally meet the businessmen and women who will purchase specially designated sponsor tables at the banquet. There will also be many celebrities from across the state representing business, political, media and athletic achievements who will want to meet & greet Coach “O”.

In the next few days individual ticket prices, sponsor table prices, and a full program of activities and invited celebrity guests will be released. For now, save the date, and make plans to attend an event that will long be remembered. Finally, we are proud to have a head coach of the LSU Tigers that we can understand!

All money made at this event will be donated to one or more non-profit organizations.
