Nearly 40 years.
That’s the gap that exists regarding Louisiana Tech University’s connection to the coveted Brian Piccolo Award winner.
Begun in 1970 to honor the late Chicago Bears’ running back by the same name, the prestigious award is presented to a rookie and veteran player on the NFL team. The Bears’ players vote amongst themselves for the rookie and veteran who best exemplify the courage, loyalty, teamwork, dedication and sense of humor of Piccolo, who was a running back for the Bears from 1966 until his untimely death from embryonic cell carcinoma in 1970 at the age of 26.

Visitors, stories from all around

Irby, Marna.jpg

We’re having some really crazy weather. A few nights ago it stormed for a couple of hours. When I say stormed, I mean for real. My niece from New Orleans, Jane Newman, came in just before it fell apart. In fact, we were warned to take cover as a small tornado dipped down over our area. We had to spend a little time hiding out in the bathroom as the gusting winds threatened  and the storm roared around us. On the third floor of my building, we watched the treetops bend and sway outside my balcony. I was amazed that the lights never went off, but there was a deluge of rain.
