Brian Inducted Into LSU Hall of Fame

Zachary’s basketball legend takes place among the most famous to have ever played turn that student-athletes of the “Greatest Generation” would have to deal with. In fact, it had affected LSU during that 1942 season as some players had to report to duty in World War II. Coach Harry Rabenhorst had been gone for over a year, serving in the United States Navy. Brian was inducted into the U.S. Army on Nov. 27, 1942, but was allowed to finish the school term

Call him one of the difference makers of LSU Basketball in the 1940s. Call him the next great LSU star since the days of the program’s first All-American Sparky Wade in the 1930s. Call him an NBA All-Star and NBA Champion. Finally, call Frank Brian an LSU Athletic Hall of Famer. For Brian, the admittance into his school Hall of Fame completes a state triple crown having been elected to the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in Natchitoches in 1986 and the Louisiana Association of Basketball Coaches Hall of Fame in 1987. Frank Brian was also the first inductee into the Zachary High School Hall of Fame. Brian, a high school standout from Zachary, lettered in men’s basketball at LSU from 1942-43 and 1946-47 as a guard. His college career was interrupted by military service in World War II, serving in the US Army from 1944-46. He was named All-Southeastern Conference in basketball in 1942-43 and again in 1947 after returning from the war. Brian also participated in the 1943 SEC Track and Field Championships in four events. He went on to have a stellar professional basketball career, earning National Basketball League Rookie of the Year honors in 1948 for the Anderson Packers, NBL All-Star honors two times and NBA All-Star honors two times. He played in the 1955 and 1956 NBA Championships for the Fort Wayne Pistons and scored 6,663 points during a 10-year career. Brian is retired and living in Zachary. Brian played at LSU at a time when admission to basketball games at LSU was just 55 cents. But his years at LSU both before and after the war marked good times for the

at LSU, including the remainder of basketball season. On May 16, 1943, Brian left for Camp Beauregard, the U.S. Army reception center near Alexandria, La. By Sept. 4, he had been transferred to Glennan General Hospital where Private First Class Frank Brian found a unit with a strong camp team, the Glennan Generals. See BRIAN on page 10

program. LSU went from fourth to second with his appearance in 1943 and finished second in 1947. It was written in the papers of the day of Brian: “Ten years ago in a small Louisiana town a nine-year-old boy tracked the high school dirt court with his bare feel as he sharpened his eye for the basketball goal. So small was he could hardly shove the ball up to the hoop. “For seven years that fellow played on that same dirt court in Zachary. In his senior year in high school a gym was built, and he transferred his talent to the hardwood. Then last year he came to the University where he starred on the frosh cage outfit (1941). This year (194142), he did the same thing on the varsity team.” Brian averaged 14 points in 1943 in earning All-Conference honors, third in the SEC in scoring. The “slim youth with plenty of speed was strong in the SEC Tournament, getting 12 versus Auburn and 18 against Alabama in LSU wins. But Brian’s career would take a

4-H Trail Ride set for September 28

By James Ronald Skains

“Our Trail Ride on Saturday, September 28 is to raise money for our local 4-H Chapters to ensure that we will have monies available for prizes, ribbons and trophies,’’ Chris Pellerin of Zachary told the POST. “Our plans are to rendezvous at the back arena of the 5-D Western Store on Plank Road in Zachary. We want the wagons and riders to be rolling by 9 AM.” “Our route will be north on Plank Road to the Pride/Plains Road, then go right till we reach Tucker Road and then go south on Tucker. Some place along Tucker Road we plan to stop for lunch. The Trail Ride will end up back at 5-D Western Store on Plank. Afterwards, we plan to have a party for the participants and 4-H kids back at our house on Arleen Street off Blackwater Road.’’ Tom and Betty are full brother and sister palomino mules about 4 years old that Chris and his wife Shelly have been working for three years on trial rides, pleasure jaunts, and at “plow days.” Plow days are popular in the Florida and Feliciana Parishes where farmers and young people with an eye on farming methods of yesteryear come together for a fun day, highlighted by good hearted competition of plowing ground

originally from Duson, Louisiana explained. “My dad was a big trail rider and horse rider, and especially loved mules. His best friend, Kenneth Landry, whom I consider as my uncle, is into trail rides and horses and mules, also. Through Kenneth’s help after my dad died, I was able to acquire Tom and Betty primarily to pull our covered wagon.’’ “My dad and Kenneth Landry made the 200th Bi-Centennial Trail Ride in 2003 that originated in Natchez and crossed Louisiana following the Old El Camino Real. I personally wanted to make that trip in 2003, but I just couldn’t take that much time off from work. It was all filmed and we are having DVD’s made of the Bi-Centennial Trail Ride.” Pellerin is no stranger to horses and cattle having helped his dad as a teenager take care of 300 mama cows on their ranch in the Duson area. However, it was the Bi-Centennial Trail ride that got the Pellerins interested in mules. “Murle Cheatwood who lives in Saline, Louisiana is the real mule man. Murle and his wife Diane helped organize the 2003 Trail Ride across Louisiana. My dad had a camp in the piney woods near Saline where he got acquainted with

Tom & Betty Ready to Pull the Load or other items that needed transportation from point A to point B before automobiles became the mode of transportation around the country for all but special events. Those participating on the “prep ride’’ back in August were, in addition to Chris Pellerin, Kenneth Landry, Kinslee Pellerin, Kyra Greely, Annalyse Greely, Billy Amastopoulous, David Desormeaux, and John Langlinois. Kinslee Pellerin is Chris and Shelly’s 8 year old daughter whose special 4-H project is a show pig. It is a variety of the white belt Hampshire pig but with a larger white belt. Billy Amastooulous is Chris Pellerin father-in-law who now lives in the Shreveport area. Billy and family, along with daughter Shelly, grew up on her grandfather’s wheat ranch near Wichita Falls, Texas. “It was a big change for Shelly going from being on a wheat ranch to marrying a guy who is into livestock. It didn’t take long for Shelly to begin to really enjoy being around livestock,’’ Pellerin related. “We are slowly building up our livestock “herd”, adding a few cattle, some chickens, pigs and horses and mules,’’ Pellerin acknowledged. “Our little boy who is only two, is already a big fan of Tom and Betty, Kinslee’s pig and our horses.’’ Pellerin’s “day job” is in management with McConnell Brick Company on Choctaw in BR. Shelly works for a downtown law firm; however, their passion is for their family in-

Murle and his mules, and trail rides. As a kid growing up, it was always exciting to ride in a trail ride, so now Shelly and I are doing what we can to let kids experience the camaraderie of a day on the trail.” “We have a 40 foot float that has been donated for our use on the 28th of September, so we will have plenty of room for 4-H kids who don’t have horses to ride or wagons to ride in for the event. Trail Rides and all 4-H activities are truly family affairs. It also teaches the kids responsibility and team work.’’ “There is plenty of room left for kids to register to participate. Also, we are thankful for the sponsors we have but could use a few more sponsors,” Pellerin emphasized. “We are planning on this being the first of many annual 4-H Trail Ride that we are part of.’’ This writer first met Tom and Betty and the Pellerin group on a Saturday morning a couple weeks ago on Blackwater Road. Pellerin was “prepping” the Palomino mules for the September 4-H Trail Ride. They were journeying down Blackwater Road at about a 5 miles an hour pace. The Pellerin Covered wagon was pulling a rubber-tired trailer on which several kids were riding, sitting on hay bales. Other kids along Tom and Betty’s route were running out to the road in order to get a better look at this scene from yesteryear when horses and mules were common sights pulling wagons filled with people, produce,

Ride, contact Chris Pellerin at or by calling 225.588.8044 (cell). Remember, wagons roll at 9 AM on Saturday morning, the 28th of September.

In fact, Brian’s game didn’t suffer because of the war, it may have gotten better. He was able to find time to continue his love of the sport while serving as a medical technologist at the hospital. In fact, in 1945 he was named the most outstanding player of the annual Eighth Service Command Army Service Forces RoundRobin finals, the last of three consecutive tournaments he won MVP honors. Today, Brian would say that his playing during the war years “enhanced his basketball skills and allowed him to stay a part of the game.” He would later be transferred first to Tilton General Hospital at Fort Dix, N.J., where he played for the Tilton General Hospital team in August 1945 where he was stationed for the final part of his service time, being discharged on April 1, 1946. Just prior to his discharge, Brian was promoted to Master Sergeant. In his recommendation for Frank’s promotion to Master Sergeant, 2LT. Thomas A. Bello said of Brian: “He is in direct charge of the supervision of 20 instructors, including three field supervisors. In this capacity, he supervises and corrects work in the gymnasium, at the Main Hospital, and on the wards at the Annex. He is a most competent physical instructor and an excellent leader. He is efficient, energetic, and a capable organizer.” The maturation of Brian and his

was compared with LSU’s first All-American, Sparky Wade, who led LSU to its mythical national championship in 1935. His ability was tested to the fullest on Feb. 21, 1947, when LSU and Tulane would meet in the Parker Ag Center on the LSU campus. Part of the story that night was the crowd of 11,500, the largest crowd to make the turnstiles click for a basketball game this side of the Mason-Dixon Line, and the other was that LSU took care of the Wave 55-40. Coach Rabenhorst after the game paid Brian the ultimate compliment. “That Brian – he an All-American if ever there was one. Did you see anything like it before? Yes, he’s one of the best players we’ve ever had. Sparky Wade was a different type. A better ball handler and dribbler and perhaps a better longdistance shot, but this Brian, he can do anything – and good.” The respect Rabenhorst showed to Brian was reciprocated by Brian to Rabenhorst: “He was tough but fair,” Brian said of his fellow Hall of Famer. Above: Former Zachary High School Prin- “The players on the team during cipal Jerry Boudreaux officially inducting game would have suggestions on Frank Brian into the Zachary High School needed plays that in their opinion Hall of Fame several decades ago. would help advance the team to a win. Coach Rabenhorst was open to Tigers showed during his return for suggestions which would help the the 1946-47 season as Brian showed team as a whole.” Brian averaged 16 points in he was one of the most poised and polished players ever to don the conference play and the pro scouts LSU garb, despite being away from knew all about him. With a wife the college game for three long and family and some seven years playing the game in college and the years. It was at that time that Brian army, the money for the future of

his life and family was more than he could pass up. He signed with the Anderson Packers of the National Basketball League. For two years he played in the NBL with the Packers, starting in April 1947, shortly after the college season ended. By the end of the 1947-48 season, he was an NBL All-Star and the NBL Rookie of the Year at 11.3 points per game. The next year, he led the Packers with just under 10 points a game, was a First-Team All-Star and the league champions. The NBL folded and the Packers moved to the National Basketball Association, where Brian was the No. 3 scorer in the league with a 17.8 points per game average. When Anderson fell out of the league, he would move to Tri-Cities where he averaged 16.8 points and 3.9 assists. He would be in the top 10 in NBA scoring a third straight year in 1952 with a 15.9 average. Over seven seasons, Brian would average 12.3 points and 2.6 assists, finishing his career with the Fort Wayne Pistons. He was two-time NBA All-Star and his team played for the NBA title in 1955 and 1956. The truth was basketball was a different game when Frank Brian played. Because of World War II, so was life for people of his age. But he starred in a time and era when his silky-smooth style of game allowed him to shine. His star will grow even brighter on Friday when he becomes just the eighth men’s basketball player (including teammates Joe Bill Adcock and Bobby Lowther) in the LSU Athletic Hall of Fame.
