South Lafourche High School has a Wall of Fame that that has two plaques on it … Ronnie “Crockett” Estay and Ed “Bebe” Orgeron. Forty-six years ago “Crockett” was honored with a “day” in his honor for his outstanding accomplishments in football in high school, college, and the pros. His image and long list of awards is displayed on a bronze plaque at the school.
Last year, LSU Head Coach Ed “Bebe” Orgeron was honored to have a bronze plaque with his image and accomplishments placed on the SLHS Wall of Fame.
Both of these men have brought a lot of positive attention for the south Lafourche community by achieving great acclaim and success on the gridiron.
This past week a third person was selected to join “Crockett” and “Bebe” on the prestigious Wall of Fame. Bobby J. Hebert now has a bronze plaque with his image and accomplishments for the Wall.
Members of the Coach “O” Committee who held a banquet to honor Coach Bebe Orgeron last year decided it was time to recognize Bobby, the “Cajun Cannon”, for his impressive achievements on the football field. The list of accomplishments is long and impressive.
