The Leesville High School Alumni Association is honored to announce Greg Fontenot as the 2021 nominee for induction into the LHS Alumni Association Sports Hall of Fame. Greg is a 1983 graduate and the first baseball player to be selected for the Hall of Fame.


The alumni association celebrates Greg’s success as a varsity pitcher/letterman. He was a first-team All-District Selection as a pitcher three years in a row and was named All-State Honorable Mention as a senior. In his senior year Greg compiled a 7-2 record as a starter and concluded the season with a 1.22 Earned Run Average (ERA). As a sophomore and a junior, he also had enviable statistics, with 6-3 records as a starter and a breathtaking 0.84 ERA in his junior campaign. Greg was an outstanding all-around player and sported batting averages of .500 and .435 in his senior and junior years respectively, leading to his being named District MVP. Greg led his teams to the LHSAA State playoffs in his junior and senior years, and he was a crucial component in Leesville’s advancing to the state quarterfinals in 1982, when the team fell to eventual state champion Minden.


Coach Tom Neubert said about Greg, “As a pitcher, he was ‘The Master of Control,’ and a true clutch player. Having Greg on the team was like having an additional coach.” Coach Neubert reminded us that Greg earned more strikeouts than innings pitched and that he never lost to DeRidder.


In addition to athletic success Greg was an LHS honor graduate and the winner of the coveted American Legion Award.

As a varsity pitcher, first baseman, and team-leading slugger, Greg became the only baseball Wampus Cat to be awarded a scholarship by a Division I team, LSU, and the only Wampus Cat to be offered a signing bonus by the San Francisco Giants.


Greg became a member of Coach Skip Bertman’s LSU baseball team that won the 1986 Southeastern Conference (SEC) championship, the 1986 SEC Tournament and the 1986 College World Series (LSU’s first CWS win ever).


After graduating from LSU, Greg signed with the Kansas City Royals, but after hurting his arm decided to leave baseball for a career in the international pharmaceutical industry.


Greg and his wife, Renessa, a former majorette at the University of Arkansas, live in Baton Rouge. He is the father of three children, two girls, Elizabeth, who will shortly take the medical school admissions test, Juliet, a senior at LSU, and a son, Clayton, 13, who—you guessed it—is a left-handed Little League pitcher, and who works out with his father every day.


Greg will serve as Grand Marshal of the homecoming parade and will be inducted into the LHS Alumni Sports Hall of Fame just prior to the football game on Friday evening, October 1, joining members Kevin Mawae, Eddie Fuller, Ted Paris, Richard Reese, Robert Gaines, Terry Holt, Grant Westerchil, Holly Wentz-Reeves, T. Barrett Porter, and Demond Mallet.


Any alumni wishing to nominate a candidate for induction must fill out the form and mail or email it to the LHS Alumni Association before June 1st. Previous nominations must be resubmitted each year.
