COACHES HONORED BY SETCA – CROUCH INDUCTED INTO HALL OF FAME
January 26 (Beaumont) – Several LCM coaches were recognized as “2022 Coaches of the Year” at the South East Texas Coaches Association banquet Thursday night in Beaumont. Awards went to Frank Snoddy (Girls Powerlifting), Johnnie Kay Harrell (Girls Golf), Brett Nicholson (Boys Tennis), and Dena Adkins (Girls Cross Country). Former Bear Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Randy Crouch (below) was inducted into the SETCA Hall of Fame. Crouch gave an impressive speech about how he grew up in Sulphur and played college ball at Louisiana Tech, yet football players and coaches from Southeast Texas always seemed to cross his path. Then as a coach, the relationships he made, and being at the right place at the right time, carried him from one position to another. “God had a plan,” he said. He got out of coaching at one point and was working in the insurance business when he got a call from David Williams who was the AD/HFC at LCM in 1994 and he would spend the next 26 years in SETX. Crouch moved back to Ruston with his wife DeWanna after retiring in 2020.
