No Easy Games: An Oral History Of The 1957 Sugar Bowl

Dec 28, 2018

The Sugar Bowl will return to the Superdome on New Year’s Day. To mark the occasion, we turn to star player and legendary coach Johnny Majors. Mr. Majors was an All-American halfback, finishing second in line for the Heisman Trophy in 1956. In this edition of NOLA Life Stories, Mr. Majors reflects on his experiences playing for the Tennessee Volunteers in the 1957 Sugar Bowl.

This NOLA Life Stories interview was conducted by Mark Cave for The Historic New Orleans Collection and produced for WWNO by Sarah Holtz.
