Pat Strother Stadium
The story behind Pat Strother Stadium
Pat Strother was a Coushatta native who played football at Louisiana Tech. He and Fred Willis, who played at Centenary College, came together and decided that Coushatta High School needed more than just a dirt field to play football. Strother, who was the soil conservationist for the parish, met with civil engineers in order to design a football stadium for Coushatta High School. Strother headed the design and got the funding together for the building of the stadium. After building the stadium, Strother was the Voice of the Coushatta Choctaws. Strother was the announcer at the football games at the stadium during the 60s. After Strother's death in 1971, the community began the process to honor the late Mr. Strother by naming the stadium after him. In the early 90s, it was deemed the Pat Strother Memorial Stadium.
