Guidry joins PRCC elite sports group
A 1992 Morgan City High School graduate was inducted into the Pearl River Community College Hall of Fame this past weekend during homecoming festivities.
Greg Guidry, who attended the college from 1993-94, was one of four inducted during the ceremony.
Guidry said it was “humbling” to be inducted into the hall of fame. “It was just a great feeling,” he said.
Guidry, a two-year member of the Pearl River Community College Wildcats baseball team, was an All-Region 23 JuCo baseball selection in 1994.
Although a catcher, he did see time at third base and pitched.
During his sophomore season, he hit .415 with 13 home runs and 58 RBIs as Pearl River finished 34-24 with a runner-up finish at the state tournament.
He was both a first-team All-State and All-American selection.
He continued his baseball career for two more seasons at Louisiana Tech where he was a first-team All-Sun Belt Conference selection.
While he said he had some offers to continue his baseball career past college, he said he chose to begin coaching, first taking a position as a graduate assistant at Louisiana Tech and now is the head baseball coach at Dekaney High School in Spring, Texas, where he has spent the last seven years.
He also was named coach of the year in Louisiana at Zwolle High School in 1998 and took his team to the state tournament.
At Morgan City High School, he was coached on the baseball team by Gayle Robinson and Tim Hymel, where he pitched and played catcher and shortstop.
He recorded a 12-1 mark on the mound as a senior and an 8-1 record as a junior.
He is the son of Deanna Guidry of Morgan City and the late G.J. Guidry Jr.
