Baton Rouge in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana — The American South (West South Central)
A bulwark member of the White Team in LSU's three-platoon system, he was instrumental in the Tigers' 1958 national title run. Named All-American as an outstanding blocker on offense and incomparable down lineman on defense, his defensive work was exemplified by the number of goal line and fourth down stands the Tigers had during the glory years of 1958 and 1959.
