With all the honors and accolades he’s received, Ruston Daily Leader executive sports editor O.K. Buddy Davis could have easily hit the big-time press circuit years and years ago.
But big city lights aren’t what makes the Ruston High and Louisiana Tech product happy. He’s much more comfortable at home, basking in the “Friday Night Lights” of Ruston or Grambling, where he’s written about sports for the Daily Leader for nearly 50 years.
Davis, sports editor of the Daily Leader since 1970, suffered a stroke on July 5 and remains hospitalized at Northern Louisiana Medical Center.
We are so excited to add many new people to our faculty. Welcome to Hillcrest. Kim Anderson, Mallory Montgomery, Jeanetta Roberson, Carolyn Jones, Lakellee Hunter, Marie McClinton, Diamond Mitchell, Shelly Pearson, Penny Boyd, Chasidee Baker and Tiffany Hill.
