Coach Artigues on Swamp People????

Coach Artigues & Bruce
 Recently SLU coach Jay Artigues ran into Bruce from the show "Swamp People" in Hammond.  Maybe if coach lets Bruce throw out the first pitch at The Pat one game, Bruce will let coach ride in his boat and wrestle an aligator one episode.

The Numbers Do Not Lie...SLU One of the Top Programs
