Garland Gregory

A native of Columbia, La., Garland came to Louisiana Tech as a freshman in 1938 and departed four years later as one of the University's finest football players ever. He became Tech's first Associated Press first team all-America selection when chosen in 1941 and went on to become an all-star on the U.S. all-service team on the West Coast. He then signed a professional contract with the San Francisco 49ers, playing two years and making all-pro both seasons. Gregory then decided to come back near home and enter the coaching field. He became a tremendously successful high school coach and guided El Dorado, Ark., high school to back-to-back state championships in 1958 and 1959. Garland joined the health and physical education faculty at Tech in 1966 and currently is the director of recreational facilities for the University.
