The University of Louisiana's National Championship Weightlifting Teams
by Warren Perrin
About the Book
Perrin's account of the University of Louisiana weightlifting tradition is a wonderful story and should appeal to anyone interested in the local and state history of Louisiana and weightlifting lore. What makes it especially valuable is the anecdotal and first-hand content. It is also well-written with lots of detail and side-stories to keep reader interest. I especially enjoyed the special coverage devoted to Red Lerille, Boyer Coe and Walter Imahara. The text has a clarity and richness, which adds to the fine piece of research that Perrin has compiled into an interesting narrative. Thanks to Perrin for writing this enlightening story.
