Adam Carlisle, 15, of Shreveport, finished first with a time of 18 minutes, 44 seconds in the 5K that wound through Squire Creek. He found out about the race through Butler, who was his cross country track coach at C.E. Byrd High School.
“I feel great,” Carlisle said. “It was a hard course, but I think I handled it pretty good. There were a lot of up hills, but you got to go back down them at the end. I was ready for (the hills) so when everyone was tired, I was ready.”
He also said he thought having a race to raise money was a good idea.

The Temptation of a lifetime

Born in Texas in 1939, this high school dropout eventually wrote an autobiography which led to the making of the NBC mini-series “The Temptations.”

“I don’t how much all of this would be valued and, really, the monetary part of it is insignificant,” Bradshaw said. “I guess you could log on to Ebay and find out, but as far as fans at Louisiana Tech are concerned, it’s a gift they can keep on enjoying in future years.
