After graduating from Foxcroft Academy, Lou earned a B.S. in journalism from Boston University and served two years in the United States Army. He covered local sports as a reporter for the Piscataquis Observer and Eastern Gazette for many years and authored two books on the history of Foxcroft Academy football. Lou’s name has become synonymous with high school sports in Piscataquis County, and in 1994 he received the “Media Award” from the Maine Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association.
