Robinson museum a winner

During his 50-plus years at the helm of Grambling’s football program, Robinson took his Tigers all around the world, serving as a goodwill ambassador for the game, Louisiana and his home.
Efforts have been underway for some time to raise the funding needed to create a museum that would chronicle the life story of Robinson and his effect on north Louisiana. But like many issues in our state, there were a mass of roadblocks that had to be cleared before approval was finally granted to provide the funding needed to get the museum started.

Cougars show off new look

The varsity Cougar performance included eighteen minute games against St. Mary and Holy Savior Menard, while the junior varsity lined up twice against Menard.
“We’ve got sixty kids out for football for the first time ever,” Aldredge continued. “And this is the first time ever in my career that I’ve tried playing kids one way. But while there may be times when somebody will have to go both ways, this is the way we’re going to go.”
The Cougars showed their mettle in the first showdown of the night, getting the best of St. Mary’s and finishing 20-6.

Nostalgia reigns supreme

I’m the same way. I pour over the stats on the Internet making predictions on what kind of numbers a player will have at the end of the season based on what he’s done to a particular point in the season.
I am, in the truest sense of the word, a baseball fanatic. I collect baseball cards, bobble head dolls, autographed baseballs and photographs. If you want to know anything about Mickey Mantle’s career or the history of the New York Yankees, just ask.

Commencement set for Saturday

For business management major Carter, though, her time away from Tech will not be long.
“I’m coming back here to grad school, so it’ll be a short reprieve,” she said. “I got accepted to the master’s program, and I should finish in a year.”
However, as excited as she is about graduation, Carter said it will be a bittersweet graduation.
“I’ll miss my friends,” she said. “They’re graduating and leaving.”

Bravo for 'Louisiana Cowboys'

Jones is also quick to credit the cowboys with whom he worked during his six months on the Gray Ranch, listing them by those exotic cowboy names — Coy, Clint, Boo, Dennis, Joe, Peanut, Johnny, Archie, Bobbie and Pete — and he relies on his daily experiences enhanced by their tales to draw his text.
