It’s a tradition that runs deep through the bayous and swamps of Southwest Louisiana. The rich history of pirates, contraband, buccaneers, and cannon fire can be found on street names, at festivals, and within the deep treasuries of local family tales and stories. And on Saturday nights during football season, that old familiar cannon fire comes alive with Cowboy fans, commemorating each and every touchdown in true buccaneer fashion.

Walking into the Richard V. Doland Athletic Field House at McNeese State University, it's easy to feel an overwhelming sense of pride for all things blue and gold. Looking at the trophies that line the cases and peeking into the Hall-of-Fame room, you get an amazing snapshot of the history and tradition of McNeese athletics. A huge fixture in this tradition is Sports Information Director Louis Bonnette. At the end of this month, this Pineville native and Louisiana Tech graduate will step down after 46 years on the job. Thrive recently sat down with Mr. Bonnette to discuss his career and his thoughts on his pending retirement.
