Davis, Buddy 2015.jpg

Scanning over various sports topics on this last Sunday in February:
MOVING UP: Carlos Henderson knew he was making the right decision shortly after Louisiana Tech University ended its 2016 season.
The New Orleans native decided to forego his 2017 senior campaign and apply for the NFL Draft.
Good thing, because the Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year and Special Teams’ Player of the Year in 2016 is moving up among wide receivers and is projected as high as a late second round pick by various draft evaluators.

What I found over the river, through the woods

Asher.jpg

On a recent trip to the Dallas area, my family detoured from our Interstate 20 route to Henderson.
My grandmother, Grammy Asher, as she is known to those in our family, has been living there in an assisted living facility for the last year or so.
Since we weren’t able to see her at Christmas, we made a special trip to visit her last week.
We did not call ahead to tell her we were coming, just in case the visit had to be canceled for some reason.
