About 100 Louisiana firefighters spent three days at LSU Eunice learning skills from leadership to a fire fighting tactic that one of the state’s top trainers calls controversial. Dave Casey, director of the LSU Carrol Herring Fire & Emergency Training Institute in Baton Rouge, said training was for first-line supervisors.
The 200th-career victory pinnacle that Eunice High head football coach Paul Trosclair reached last season is one few coaches in St. Landry Parish have achieved. Trosclair (204-88) is only the fifth coach in parish history to have won 200 or more games along with Johnny Buck, Donnie Perron, James Waguespack and Larry Dauterive.
