Our 2017 Hall of Fame Ceremony was a success! The event was held¬†at the Renaissance Hotel in Baton Rouge, owned by one of our 2017 honorees: Mike Wampold, Class of 1971. The event was sponsored by several other “Bulldog Businesses” in town including: Lundin Roofing Company, Giraphic Prints, Inolect, The Fabre Group (Infiniti/Subaru/Acura), and Postlethwaite and Netterville. ¬†Special thanks goes out to these sponsors as well as our many volunteers for the evening.

Seven BRHS alumni and two retired BRHS Coaches were honored with induction into our Hall of Fame. Congratulations to our 2017 Honorees. The Legacy of Excellence definitely continues through these amazing alumni.
