Warren Theall

*Our boxer was Raymond "Cooking Oil" Hebert.  He won three district championships and in his only appearance at the state tournament won the state championship.  He attended LSU for a short time then enlisted in the Army Air Force.  He was stationed in the Philippine Islands when the Japanese attacked. Like all the other military personnel he wound up fighting the Japanese in the Bataan Peninsula.  When the Americans surrendered, he evaded capture and joined the Filipino guerrillas.  He lived and fought with them for a time but eventually a Japanese patrol caught up with him and killed him. (Paul Bergeron Comment)
