The young child, wearing pigtails and her school uniform, has a rope noose around her neck. A second woman is holding the rope up to a limb of the tree while a crowd of the young girl’s classmates looks on.

Dwyer special in victory

His numbers for points scored, rushing yards and all-purpose yards are all new single game marks for the Cougars’ program.
“When he’s got the football in his hands, he’s a special player,” said head coach Corwyn Aldredge. “He’s what you call a warrior. He’s the type of player who is always wanting to help the team in any way he can. In the second half, he was over there trying to get coach Adams (Jason, defensive coordinator) to let him play on defense.”
It was Many’s defense who had to deal with Dwyer and, by game’s end, it turned into a futile situation.

Newspaper should reflect your life

It isn’t just the campus environment that I loved so much during my four years at Tech; it was the entire area.
The city of Ruston hosts the university and its employees and students with pride and kindness.
Even as my career took me to other parts of the state, I always considered Ruston a great place to return to, if the opportunity arose.

RPAR, Ruston growing as one

“We’re getting run over. It started in the spring with soccer, and, I mean, we didn’t even have enough registration forms,” Barton said during an interview earlier this month. “This time we had enough registration forms — we were ready for that — but all of our programs are drastically up, not only (these) but also our contracted programs.”
