Despite losing 31 seniors, Tech cupboard isn’t bare
122812 Dixon Run C.jpg

Kenneth Dixon and Johnny Manziel have two things in common.
Both had incredibly outstanding seasons as college freshmen.
Both will also have a bull’s-eye on the back of their jerseys this fall.
Such is what comes with success.
Sudden success, no less.
Dixon was an unknown shy, laid-back young man from Strong, Ark., when he walked into Louisiana Tech University’s fall training camp last August.

A cure for the holiday hangover

in
Sharp, Lacey.jpg

Uggghhh, I have a hangover. And it is not the one induced by alcohol. Although similar in nature — self-inflicted, sluggishness, bloated, feelings of guilt and remorse — it’s the holiday hangover and it usually takes a lot longer to get over than one induced by alcohol.
