Rebels top Ruston in jamboree, 12-3
“I saw some good things,” said head coach Billy Laird. “We got a chance to play in a game-type situation, in front of a good crowd and I thought we got a lot of good out of it.”
Ruston trailed only 6-3 at halftime, the Bearcats’ points coming on a 34-yard field goal by John Hinton with 1:13 remaining. Setting it up: a super, defender-dodging run of 29 yards by running back Kevin Caesar.
Junior defensive back Kenny Freeman gave the ‘Cats another chance as the first half seconds ticked down with an interception, but the clock ran out.
