Lake Charles in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana — The American South (West South Central)
Louisiana High School Hall of Famer, R.S. Killen, coached from 1924-1950. In 1944, this stadium was named Killen Field in his honor. The name was revoked in 1953 due to a state law barring naming public structures after living persons. This stadium embraces endless memories for people who remember this time in Lake Charles High School history.
