Louisiana Tech sophomore quarterback Ryan Higgins is in a tough duel as a frontrunner to become the starting quarterback for the Bulldogs along with senior transfer Cody Sokol.

New Lady Techsters basketball coach Tyler Summitt is hoping to watch his team hit a lot of big field goals this season.
Last week he watched his Lady Techsters hit their first big goal of serving the community as they shared their gift of love by visiting the residents of Princeton Place, a rehabilitation center and nursing home in Ruston.

And yes, I’m probably old school — pun totally intended.
It just doesn’t seem quite right. There’s still 43 days of summer left. We’re into only the second week of August, but by Friday some of our parish students will start the new school year.
