  1. Ken, thought you might like a little history on Voodoo receiver Hutch Gonzales. You may want to read this story about Hutch, While playing for Hal Mumme in College, Hutch played an entire football game with a broken leg. The same break Reggie Bush had recently. Hutch not only played but was the leading receiver of the game with 11 catches and a touchdown. Amazing story of courage and heart. Yes, he is my son, but even I was moved by his drive to play. I hope this link works. It’s a story from the Daily Star in Hammond.

    Ken, have you ever considered Hokie Gajan for induction into the Saints Hall Of Fame? He seems like a logical choice considering his time as a player, scout and broadcaster for the Saints. Jim Henderson should also be considered.
    Thanks,
