Dave "Boo" Ferriss Statue Fund

Coach Dave "Boo" Ferriss Statue Fund

Delta State University and the Department of Athletics are erecting a statue in honor of Coach Dave "Boo" Ferriss due to his commitment to both. The life-size statue, created by renowned Mississippi artist Kim Sessums, will feature Ferriss in his Delta State uniform and it will be placed behind the newly renovated grandstand next fall.

Most people simply know him as "Boo." He is Dave "Boo" Ferriss, Boston Red Sox Hall of Famer and legendary coach of the Delta State University Statesmen. Ferriss retired following the completion of the 1988 season, but he continues to be a tireless supporter at all levels of baseball throughout the state and especially his beloved Statesmen.

Ferriss earned several honors for his coaching accomplishments. You can read more about his accomplishments and honors here.
