 Ole Rebels interview from 2010

Ole Rebels:  Where did you grow up?

Coach Shows:  I grew up in Ruston, LA.  I went to Ruston High School and graduated in 1958.  I played for legendary coach Hoss Garrett.  We ran the Notre Dame Box.  I played tailback which is essentially the same as a QB in the “gun.”  I also ran track and played baseball.  I won 4 state championships in track.    

OR:  What was your favorite sport as a child?

Coach Shows:    I actually liked baseball and basketball the best.

OR:  Where did you go to college?

Coach Shows:  I attended La Tech from 1958-63 and graduated with a degree in Education.  I am certified to teach Science, Biology, and H & PE.

OR:  What’s your favorite TV shows?

Coach Shows:   I watch NCIS and The Closer.  She’s good!

OR: What’s your favorite ice cream?

Coach Shows:   Blue Bell Black Walnut

OR: Tell me about your family.

Coach Shows:  I am married to the former Dawn Ducote from Alexandria.  I have 4 children: Stephanie, Kim, Casey, and Haley

OR: What are your Hobbies outside of football?

Coach Shows:  I love to hunt and fish!  If it swims, runs, flies, or crawls, I’m after it!

OR: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Coach Shows:  I hope to be alive!!!!!!  (laughing)  I would like to be sitting in a deer stand or duck blind or teeing it up!

OR: What is your favorite Rebel moment?

Coach Shows:  I really enjoy watching other sports besides football doing well.  Loved seeing our teams playing and winning championships in basketball, softball, and baseball.  Seeing the track team improve.  Another thing I’m proud of is seeing our facilities improve.  We went from the worst to the best!  And there is a lot more to be done. 

My favorite football moment was when we were playing Shaw for the championship in 1997.  We were facing 4th and goal, down 19-14  with about a minute and a half left in the game, and Rodney Reed made a great adjustment on his block, Lane LaBorde made the right read, and Willis Britton followed Reed into the end zone for the win!  Beating Carencro in the 1996 state championship was incredible!  (Editors note:  WM was picked to finish last in District 2-5A that year.  They went undefeated in district for the first time).  And beating St. Aug. 1993 was awesome because no one thought we could but we proved a lot of people wrong that day!!!!!!
