|Faircloth to be honored at Bayou Jamboree|
Former Vidalia High head football coach Dee Faircloth will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Bayou Jamboree at Louisiana-Monroe Saturday.
Each year, the jamboree honors two high school football coaches and inducts them into the Jamboree Hall of Fame.
Faircloth and the late Moose Munyan will be honored.
"It's quite an honor and certainly to be honored with Moose," said Faircloth, a graduate of Mangham High.
Faircloth posted a record of 249-187-6. His 249 wins ranks 19th in Louisiana. Vidalia High's football stadium was named after Faircloth in 2005.
Faircloth's 249 wins ranks third to J.T. Curtis of John Curtis High and Vic Dalrymple of Oak Grove in number of wins among coaches in Louisiana who coached at only one school.
The fifth annual Bayou Jamboree is set to invade Malone Stadium on the cmpus of ULM.
"I'm in some great company with people like Charlie Brown, Chick Childress, Ray Gambino, Red Franklin and Levi Washington.
This year the annual high school kick off event will host three games and feature several D-1 prospects. Regardless of the player's rankings there are always a few surprise performances.
The games will begin at 4pm with 1A Oak Grove taking on 2A Jonesboro-Hodge.
Last season's game between these two Tigers saw current ULM Warhawk Rob'Donovan Lewis break a 50-yard around end scamper. In the end it was the Oak Grove Tigers that prevailed with a 25-14 win.
Next the Rivals.com nationally ranked West Monroe Rebels taking on the Rayville Hornets. The Rebels enter the contest as the No. 7 nationally in the Rivals 100, but should not be considered easy favorites in the contest.
Rayville has a solid defensive presence with 3-Star DT Gerrand Johnson, a ULM commit, and DE/LB Quinton Griffin.
The duo will have their hands full though with a pair of standouts in Tyler Cain and Paul Turner, a 3-Star LSU commitment.
Closing out the night will be the defending 4A state champion Neville Tiger taking on district rival Bastrop.
The Tigers lost MVP Taylor Burch after graduation, but the defense looks to carry them this season as they have 3-Star defensive tackle Demarcus Hodge, an Arkansas commitment, and LB/DB Andrew Jackson. Jackson will look to contain Ram receiver DeAndre Seller.
Louisiana Army National Guard NFL Pepsi Punt, Pass, and Kick: the fun begins at 11:00 a.m., with check-in beginning at 10 a.m.; Brown Stadium on the ULM Campus. Entry is free, open to boys and girls ages 8 -15 (as of December 31, 2010).
