NEW ORLEANS, La. – The Loyola University New Orleans men’s basketball team visited Woodland West Elementary school in Harvey this past Tuesday.
James “Big Jim” McCafferty came to Loyola in 1938 to play football, but it was his accomplishments on the basketball court, as both player and coach, which will earn him a spot in the Allstate Sugar Bowl’s Greater New Orleans Sports Hall of Fame.
The Allstate Sugar Bowl and the Greater New Orleans Sports Hall of Fame named Ryan Brock as their Greater New Orleans Outstanding Male Amateur Athlete.
Ryan Brock was recently named the Greater New Orleans Amateur Athlete for the Month of March by the Greater New Orleans Sports Selection Committee, sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl.
