Grown men can worship heroes, too
Davis, OK.jpg

There were many interesting aspects to the recent Shack Harris/Doug Williams Foundation event held in Shreveport/Bossier City, but none moreso than an interview I had with one of the celebrities in attendance.
And it had far more to do than just the sports world, either past or present.

When the 2011 season began, Louisiana Tech University had a preseason ranking in the low 80s for the CollegeFootballNews.com national poll.
And for a while, at the start of the campaign, it appeared as if the Bulldogs might do well to even rate that high.
Tech lost four of its first five games, but then recovered to take seven consecutive wins, capture a Western Athletic Conference title and play in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl.

HAYES.jpg

DES MOINES, Iowa — For a stellar collegiate career that was spent primarily setting records, Chelsea Hayes closed it on a disappointing note.
Still, finishing seventh in the nation in her second-best event is a pretty good result, even if it was disappointing only to her.
Hayes ran 11.58 in the 100-meter dash finals Friday at Drake Stadium to finish seventh in the nation at the 2012 NCAA Championships.

Doves of a different feather

I grew up with doves. Even as a youngster cutting my teeth down in Goldonna, hearing the soft cooing of mourning doves in June was as much a part of my life as walking out to the garden with a bucket to pick purple hull peas.
There was no dove season back then and hearing the gentle call of these timid gray birds was as natural as hearing the crisp whistle of a bobwhite quail along the back fence row.

Bowles: Gem for Eagles

Ex-GSU assistant brings solid resume to Philly
Bowles.jpg

PHILADELPHIA — If all goes according to plans, Philadelphia Eagles fans, Todd Bowles says Doug Williams is the man to thank.
If the Birds’ highly skilled, but till now vastly underachieving secondary suddenly comes together and starts living up to its billing, he says credit should go to the man back at the helm for his second stint at Grambling, and by extension the legendary coach who showed him the way.

PHILADELPHIA — From 1,300 miles away, you can hear the pride in Doug Williams’ voice over the phone when he discusses his friend and former teammate, Todd Bowles.
