Louisiana Tech University head golf coach Jeff Parks’ message every day to his Bulldog players is simple: focus on the next shot.
Parks, who is in his third season as LA Tech’s head coach, doesn’t want his players living in the future and reliving the past. It’s a mindset that he wants engrained into his team’s collective thought process during practice and during events.
However, as the coach, Parks has the luxury of looking further into the future.

In the whole swirling political/media uproar over Trayvon Martin’s shooting, only two things are indisputably clear: A 17-year-old boy is dead, and George Zimmerman shot him.
Nothing we can do can bring Trayvon back. It’s clear from all versions of this event that Trayvon did not deserve to die.
