Gridiron Bulldogs focus on humility, hard work

in

Louisiana Tech head coach Skip Holtz has been challenging his team to stay humble, stay hungry and always keep working. That has been the message delivered to the team throughout spring practice including in the two-hour practice session at Joe Aillet Stadium Wednesday afternoon.
Last season’s mantra to the team was the faceless opponent where the Bulldogs needed to only worry about themselves and execute their game plan to find success. In nine instances it worked like a charm and delivered a divisional title and bowl trophy.

Harsch: We’re pretty pumped about it

Ruston will be having the ultimate throwback party from 9 p.m.- 3 a.m. on Saturday at The Revelry. The event, named Let’s Get Physical, will be a themed ’70s and ’80s Prom Night party.

I was going to talk about a story with each of the three seniors, Raheem Appleby, Michale Kyser and Kenneth “Speedy” Smith.
