RHS takes high-tech angle in game filming

The Bearcats’ Class 5A Louisiana High School Association program has gone high-tech with its postgame and game-week analysis.
Prior to this season, the Booster Club and Lincoln Parish School Board provided the necessary funds for the team to purchase the $18,000 software program called Webb GAMEDAY.
Considered the “Cadillac” in its field, the program is designed to analyze on-the-field action, evaluate schemes and strategy, scout opponents and peruse techniques used by players and teams during the course of a game night.

Prep teams face ‘second season’

The mission is clear for all teams now suiting up for season No. 2: win or else.
“It’s one or done now,” said Bearcats’ coach Billy Laird. “Now is the time when you’ve got to bring your best game.”
RHS, Creek and Grambling hope to keep the parish’s representation in postseason play alive into next month, when the LHSAA stages its annual Superdome Classic.
Last year, the Cougars had the deepest advance into the playoffs of any parish program, going until the quarterfinal round, where they fell to District 2-1A rival Ouachita Christian 49-13.

Community calls forth vision

Muriel Butler, a resident of Ruston’s south side who sat at the Adams Street table, chatted with nearby residents about education and transportation.
“I was highly motivated to come see what this was all about,” Butler said of Community Visioning Day. “I want to see new ideas and change coming from the meeting.”
