Coordinator Tommy Spangler is hoping that a combination of seasoned veterans and wide-eyed youngsters bodes well for Louisiana Tech University’s defensive unit in 2010.
“I’m eager to see if two things can happen for us during fall camp,” Spangler said Monday, just a few hours before the Bulldogs kicked off their preseason workouts. “First, I’m hoping that our older guys remember what they did last year and continue to develop. At the same time, I’m hoping that these young guys who might not know what to do right now start blending in with the older ones.”
From all indications, based on personnel returning and the progress made in the spring, the Bulldogs’ defense has the potential to draw as much attention as the much-talked-about spread offense.

in

GRAMBLING — Polls may not mean anything at this time of the year, but they can be productive for bulletin board material.
Ask Grambling State University players.
The recently announced preseason poll for the Southwestern Athletic Conference has the Tigers finishing as runner-up again to Prairie View A&M in the Western Division and, thus, missing out on a trip to the league’s championship game.

Summer reading program enriches parish children

Each summer, thousands of children across the country take a break from all things school related and spend their days lounging by the pool and watching as much television as they can fit into their day.
However, at least a couple hundred school-aged children and teens in Lincoln Parish spent their days with their noses buried in books and hanging out at the library. This summer the Lincoln Parish Library encouraged people of all ages to pick up books, DVDs and audio books to nourish their minds. Featured programs were directed toward children, tweens, teens and adults.
These children, tweens and teens flocked to the library either for their love of reading or possibly their love of prizes. Either way, those decisions have given them a head start for the upcoming school year.
