Longtime West Monroe High School football coach Don Shows, a Ruston High School and Louisiana Tech University graduate, died this morning at the age of 75.
Shows, a member of the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame, took over the West Monroe football program in 1989 and guided eight teams to state titles in his tenure with the last coming in 2011.
He gained much of that football at Ruston High, where he played tailback in the Notre Dame box formation under legendary coach L.J. “Hoss” Garrett. He also played baseball for the Bearcats and was a four-time state track champion for RHS.
