Eddie G. Robinson Sr. loved football, but his legend, a much-deserved one, runs much deeper than that.
Coach Rob was about much more than football — one of his biggest ambitions was working with young people and coaching the game of life.
And don’t doubt that on Saturday morning, as the seventh annual Eddie G Robinson football camp was held at Greenwood Park in Ruston — the first camp since the death of Eddie Robinson Jr. last fall — both Sr. and Jr. were looking down at the proceedings and smiling, proud that their legacy is living on.

On Sept. 12, area folks will have the opportunity to experience a brand new event in Ruston — the first Ruston Makers Fair.
The North Central Louisiana Arts Council is so pleased to let people know about this free-to-the-public festival that’s been organized by Joshua Mitchell, a regional furniture maker. We asked Josh to tell us a little about the event so everyone will know what to expect and why they should come shop.
