    Dave Simmons back at NSU

    Former Tech star and former Tech assistant coach, and most recently, the HC at McNeese, Dave Simmons, is together again with former Dawg Opie.

    Simmons as a player at Tech:

    Simmons’ 89 percent free throw aim at Louisiana Tech in his senior year (1980-81) is best in school history by a player with over 75 makes. His career 81.8 percent rate at the line ranks fourth. Simmons is featured on a banner in the concourse of the Bulldogs’ Thomas Assembly Center and is a member of the Louisiana Basketball Hall of Fame, enshrined in 2007 for his playing days as an All-Southland and All-NABC District 23 performer.

    Dave Simmons is on my all-time Tech Men's All-Star Team. He was very, very good. Great shooter, smooth ball handler. Great defender. Much under-rated and under-appreciated in Tech basketball lore.

    Now...he also played for Deridder High and we (Rummel) beat them for the state championship. They entered 41-0 and we fans were chanting before, doing, and afterwards "41-1! "41-1!" That Deridder team also had that Sanders kid who played for UCLA. Great team! But only 2nd best in the state, hah!

    Most importantly Dave Simmons is a great guy.

    I am sure those stats were accurate at one time...

    But, the first one was superseded this year.

    Jacobi Boykins shot .915 from free throw line this past season making 97 of 106 attempts.

    Oh yeah, right. Still, Simmons held the career mark for some 40 years, or close to it!
