Higginbotham honored with track award
Higginbotham, a legendary football and track coach at Ruston High who eventually became principal and superintendant, died less than a week before the meet due to a brief illness.
"His influence has gone from the classroom all the way to the central office," Ruston high head track coach Dave Anderson said. "He was always willing to serve. He was always around. Even up until the last couple of times he got sick, he was at every ball game and every track meet."
