Former TE Billy Truax To Enter NOLA Sports Hall of Fame

NEW ORLEANS – Former LSU All-Southeastern Conference tight end Billy Truax is one of four inductees into the 2019 class of the Allstate Sugar Bowl’s Greater New Orleans Sports Hall of Fame in August.

The ceremony is set for Aug. 10 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

If you’re looking to confirm the high level of success achieved at every step of Truax’s football career, consider this: He was all-prep, all-state and All-America at Holy Cross, and in 1959, the Times-Picayune four-sport Athlete of the Year at Holy Cross; a 1963 first team All-America at LSU, and a second-round NFL draft choice who went on to a 10-year pro career winning a Super Bowl VI championship with the Dallas Cowboys.
