Charles "Hoss" Newman

Earned top freshman honors for the Louisiana Intercollegiate Conference in 1941 as a defensive end. Newman made all-conference in 1942, 1946 and 1947. He was captain of the 1947 team that won an LIC title. Newman was drafted by the Washington Redskins in 1948, but two weeks into camp, an injury ended his career. Within a year, the Ponchatula, La. native was coaching high school football and became one of the few coaches to win 200 football games in the Louisiana high school ranks. Along with a career record of 205-119-7, Newman's teams won 10 district championships and earned 13 playoff births.
