Baton Rouge, Louisiana native and Capitol High school graduate Oliver Lafayette is finding himself gracing Houston billboards all over the city. Lafayette, a senior and guard, is one of the star players on the University of Houston basketball team. The billboards are a part of the schools annual campaign to bring attention to the Cougars men’s basketball team. The sociology major has been one of the stand out players at UofH since he arrived at the school. Congratulations Oliver on a job well done!
(Note: By the way, Baton Rouge is The Insite’s hometown and Oliver is a protege of one of The Insite’s good friends Patrick Green.)
