James: Deep athletic ties to state
Editor’s Note: This is the final part of a Louisiana Sports Writers Series of stories profiling the eight athletes and coaches to be enshrined in the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame Saturday night in Natchitoches.
Aaron James’ athletic career spans a wide spectrum — basketball player, coach and, eventually, college athletic administrator.
All along the way, though, James spent his career in the state he grew up in — Louisiana.
So it’s only fitting that James will be enshrined as one of the state’s sports greats when the 2012 Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame class is inducted Saturday night in Natchitoches.
