Kenny Beaugh honored at Acadiana High as a super fan

Often football stadiums are named after winning coaches and jersey numbers are retired, but something rare happened at Acadiana High on Oct. 16.
A seat in the Wreckin’ Rams’ stadium was retired in honor of the school’s super fan, Kenny Beaugh.
Kenny was a Eunice High School graduate and, as the son of Leon Beaugh, grew up with brothers Tony and Terry attending sporting events.
Kenny died on Oct. 11 of COVID-19 complications and it didn’t take long for Acadiana High to honor its top fan.
