The McNeese State Athletic Training Room: A History in the Making
Dowell Fontenot - In 1956, Dowell began his twenty-year career as the first Athletic Trainer at McNeese State College. In 1960, he attended Herman Hospital School of Physical Therapy. He returned to McNeese State College in his capacity as Athletic Trainer and Associate Professor. In 1975, he retired from McNeese and went into practice as the first private physical therapist in Calcasieu Parish, retiring from private practice in 1987.
Jim Murphy - Murphy replaced Fontenot and continued in that role until 1988 when he moved to El Paso, TX and opened a private practice.
Ricky Mestayer - Mestayer served as our Head Athletic Trainer from 1988 until 1994 when he became the Dean of Student Services on campus.
Jim Murphy - In '94, Murphy returned to MSU, and later helped develop the CAATE accredited Athletic Training Education Program in 2009.
Jake Duhon - Jake took the reigns of the program in early 2014.
