Sloan, Laura.jpg

I can’t remember ever having a bad teacher — at least not before college. Sure, there were ones that I did not particularly care for, such as my third-grade teacher, who yelled a lot and punished children by making them sit up on their knees on the hard floor. Then there was my fourth-grade teacher, who declared I could not leave the lunchroom until I had sampled everything on my plate.

One game.
That’s what it comes down in determining whether or not Ruston High has another “season.”
Win over Pineville High on Friday night at L.J. “Hoss” Garrett Stadium at James Field and the Bearcats are in the Class 5A Louisiana High School Athletic Association playoffs.
Lose and then it’s an “iffy” situation, pending on what might happen with other teams in a similar situation as the Bearcats.
