We are so excited about this Gator on the Geaux because we were able to talk with the man behind the Gator, Dave McCarty! He owns the insurance office where the Gator stands and just so happened to be inside the Sunday we stopped by to take our pictures. He told us the Gator is wearing the Louisiana State University football uniform with the number 74 on the jersey because it’s based off of him! That was his jersey number when he played football there. He failed to mention however that he was on the 1958 undefeated National Championship team! So impressive!!
Mr. McCarty was so kind and helpful and even posed for a picture with his Gator look-a-like! His Gator on the Geaux can be found at 2108 Oak Park Boulevard in Lake Charles.
