The annual tournament raises funds for the James Oliphant Endowed NSU Football Scholarship established in 2008 in honor of the beloved teacher and coach who succumbed to ALS in 1988. Mr. Oliphant was a Scholar and All-Star NCHS athlete, graduating with honors in 1973, and was well-respected by his classmates, teachers, and friends. Jimmy’s love for young people and all forms of athletics led him to Northwestern State University, where he earned a B.S. degree in Physical Education in 1977.

While attending NSU, Jimmy sought to serve humanity both socially and intellectually. He was a charter member of the Theta Lambda Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc., and he taught in Natchitoches Parish schools serving as a football, basketball and track coach until his retirement in 1987.
