First of all, I want to make it clear that this web site is not about me. My friend pointed out to me that the people that view this site might want a little background on the web master. After careful consideration, I decided to open a small window into the reasons and the history of the site. My name is Ray Butler and I am a former Louisiana high school football coach of 19 years, but mostly I'm just a fan and historian of the game. I played for Vic Dalrymple at Oak Grove and won two state titles in football. My Dad, David Ray Butler, won two state championships as the head coach in baseball at Oak Grove. I am married to Lara Butler and together we have 5 children, Emma Beth, Raylee, Callie, Coda, and Will. Football is our life. I've had success in this game and have worked with some great coaches and coached some great kids. As of 2016, I've have been to Superdome Prep Classic 27 years and seen 143 state championship games, playing in two (1989 and 1991). In 2015, one my players died on the field at Franklin Parish. Tyrell Cameron #48 was a great kid and a great player. This game has been bitter sweet, but it was the life that I chose. After his death and the death of my Father and Grandfather, I decided to retire as a coach and spend time with my family and fulfill my dream to write a book. The purpose of this website was to put as much information and history of the game in one place so people could enjoy it.
Some of my former players that have went on to the next level.
