Vic Dalrymple and Don Shows at the Bayou Jam Media Day
Oak Grove Football Head Coach from 1981-2012
Coach Dalrymple is what you might call the "Founder of the Feast." This thing that we have built, Oak Grove Football, is bigger than him but it definitely would not be the same without him. The difference that he has made in this program is immeasurable. Sure, there have been people before him and there will be people after him, but no one has put their mark on this place like he has. The numbers speak for themselves...
...still not in the Hall of Fame.

On a personal note, this man means so much to so many people in Oak Grove. He's touched the lives of so many young men, including myself. He showed us how to work, not to give up, and to push ourselves to do WHATEVER IT TAKES to get the job done. This man held me accountable, gave me tough love, and reached out to me when i was down. I would personally follow this man to the gates of hell to do battle. I will always be grateful....
Thanks Coach. - Ray Butler
