Jacques Doucet is a sports reporter for WAFB 9News. He moved to Baton Rouge in 2001.
Along with his work at WAFB, Jacques founded a nonprofit 501-C charity called Red Rock & Blue. The organization holds a major charity fundraiser each summer to benefit Louisiana military, consisting of three major events - "The Celebrity/Sorta Celebrity Softball Game," "The Red, Rock and Blue Charity Concert" and "The Doucet/Begnaud Softball/Kick Ball Invitational".
RRB gives primarily to local military charity organizations to benefit those who serve and their families. Such organizations are The Blue Star Mothers of Louisiana, Wounded War Heroes and Support Our War Heroes. RRB donated a total of $100,000 to charity alone over the last two years (2015 & 2016), with more big plans moving forward. We are proud to say it is becoming one of the state's fastest growing charities.
In 2016, over 80 teams participated in the softball/kickball tournament, while multi-platinum bands like Sugar Ray, Everclear, Gin Blossoms, Eve 6, LIT, Soul Asylum and Sponge have played the concerts.
The Celebrity/Sorta Celebrity Softball Game is always a great time, with many different sports greats and other well-known personalities participating. Simply put, Red Rock & Blue is a very good thing. For more information, please visit redrockandblue.com.

For the first time in my life, the death of a celebrity truly impacted me and left me totally bummed. Edward Van Halen - guitar god and innovator, creator of countless hard rock and pop anthems - passed away on Oct. 6 at just 65 years old.
While the atmosphere at Tiger Stadium has been raucous for nearly the last 20 years, things weren’t always good in Death Valley. WAFB 9sports anchor Jacques Doucet sat down with four former LSU players who played during the program’s lackluster years of the early 1990s.
The legendary former voice of the Tigers recently sat down with WAFB 9Sports’ Jacques Doucet to reflect on No. 2 LSU’s impressive 12-0, 8-0 SEC season ahead of their matchup with the Georgia Bulldogs in the SEC championship game on Dec. 7.
No. 2 LSU (7-0, 3-0 SEC) has a big hurdle to clear in the form of No. 9 Auburn (6-1, 3-1 SEC) before the Bayou Bengals can improve to 8-0 overall and start counting down to their date with No. 1 Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
No. 6 LSU kicks off the 2019 season Saturday night in Tiger Stadium against Georgia Southern as a four-touchdown favorite. The oddsmakers expect the Eagles to give up about 40 points to the new Tiger offense.
