I used to love me some Junius.

He doesn't really look much like Junius did in High school, but that was over thirty years ago and my memory is getting fuzzier and fuzzier, about faces in particular. I'm trying to find out info now but I'm pretty sure he's not his kid. Not a really common name but not peculiar, either, in this area.

If I can find anything else out, I'll let you know.

Wasn't his nickname, "urnge"?

Probably because of his size, Junius didn't get much press. He proved to be too fragile for the RB position (really for any position at LSU, he was hurt his freshman year and never really panned out) which he played in high school. In his junior and senior year in HS he led the state in rushing (I have no way to verify that via the web). In his junior year (1979) that means he out gained Johnny Hector and his senior year he out gained (barely) Billy Cannon Jr. Interestingly enough, if my memory serves me correctly, both Hector and Cannon snubbed LSU for aTm.

Never heard anybody call hi "urnge", I'm assuming that was a feeble attempt at racist humor.

That would be correct.

Cannon Jr. wound up only having daughters and his youngest is named Billie.. I guess they really tried to keep the name going.

Junuis had the nickname Pim since his day at Judice. 1978 as a Jr he did out rush Hector. And he was hurt in the NISH game and missed a game or 2.
Not sure if he didn't miss a game in 79.
Number 33 will always be remembered as Acadianas 1st great Veer runningback. Aaron Cluse was the 1st good one. Junuis started a good run of great ones.

Does anyone know what Junius Dural is doing now?

I have been following LSU football since the 1970's and really had to think to recall him.

Pretty sure Dural is a relatively common name in Acadiana. For example, Buckwheat Zydeco's real name is Stanley Dural, Jr.

A quick google search also turned up a Carolyn Dural, professor at ULL.

Junius is retired from the Navy. Pretty sure he is in Corpus Christi Texas. He is in the medical field.
Dural is not a very common name in the Acadiana area.
HHaven't seen him since like 1990.
