      did you know:
      Louisiana is home to
      Mardi Gras, one
      of the largest Carnival
      celebrations in the
      world. Held each
      February in New
      Orleans, the two-week
      party draws millions
      of tourists from around
      the world.


     Louisiana is the crawfish capital of the world, supporting a multimillion dollar-a-year industry.
     With speckled trout and large and small-mouth bass action that is unrivaled in the country, with clouds of
     ducks filling the skies most winters, with deer, rabbit and squirrels running wild, Louisiana is rightly named
     Sportsman’s Paradise. It’s a fisherman and hunter’s dream-come-true.

                                            “He’s the kind of coach that’s got a lot of energy, and he’s somebody that
                                            you can relate to on a personal level. He’s great at giving advice while being
                                            upbeat at the same time. There aren’t many coaches that will let you have
                                            fun while getting the job done at the same time. He has the ability to get
                                            that out of you.

                                            “Coach Dooley is such a bright person. He’s made me a better person on
                                            and off the field. He’s made me focus every day on every aspect of the
                                            game. As a coach, he makes you the best player you can possibly be. He’ll
                                            coach you like you’ve never been coached, and he’ll push you to your
                                            maximum potential. He is a phenomenal teacher.   ”

                                            “Derek was born to be a football coach, but not just because he is the
                                            son of a former head coach and grew up around it. He understands the
18                                          commitment it takes to be a winner at all levels. Guys like him just need this
                                            opportunity, and now it’s official, so watch out. He’ll have a lot of success.

    “I think Derek has an excellent presence about himself. He’s a very
    articulate, bright guy. He’s very well organized and very smart. He’s a
    good coach and a hard-working guy. He was always a very good recruiter
    when he was in college, which I think is paramount if you’re going to have
    success as a college coach. I think he’s got all the right stuff and ingredients
    to be successful as a head coach. ”

    a great man. He comes from a background of winning, and he represents
    what you expect in a coach. You can believe and fully trust him. He is a
    high-character man and a player’s coach. ”

    “Coach Dooley is a great guy and certainly someone I look up to. He has an
    extreme knowledge of the game of football, and I’m very excited to see him
    get an opportunity to be a head coach.
