People often have many questions for the blind, but never ask. The best way to find the answers is to talk to a blind person.

Four coaches at Bishop Dunne played football together at Louisiana Tech University, and two in the athletic program are former NFL players. The four football coaches not only attended college together, but are like brothers on the Dunne campus, and their children all attend the on-campus day care created for teachers, housed in the former convent, St. Mary’s Hall.
