PINEVILLE — Senior running back Qayshon Thurman has been great insurance for the Ruston High School football team all season long.
When starter Juwan Wright was lost for the season early on with a broken leg, Thurman moved over from the defensively secondary to use his quick feet on the offensive side of the ball.
Thurman again proved to be Ruston’s “Good Hands Man” Friday night as he rushed the ball 31 times for 205 yards to help lead the Bearcats to a 26-14 win over Pineville at Rebels Stadium.

And that’s what Cedar Creek did as the Cougars roared to a 31-0 win at Hornets Stadium.
Senior running back Wes Gresham was the catalyst for the offensive explosion, rushing for 238 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries.

Please pass the envelope.
Announcing: the recipients of the Coach of the Year award in the Southwestern Athletic Conference and Conference USA for the 2014 football season.
Is a vote really necessary?
Barring unexpected developments during the next several weeks, the winners will be:
Grambling State University’s Broderick Fobbs in the SWAC.
Skip Holtz in Conference USA.
How do I know that this will (or should) happen, even if only a few games still remain in both leagues?
Well, some of it has to do with just having a hunch.

Catching up with a NBA legend

110914 Willis Reed Wheaties C.jpg

It’s been five years since I last interviewed the great Willis Reed for a magazine story that is, until last week.
Looking for an interview for my Glynn Harris Outdoors radio program on ESPN 97.7, I was scanning my address book when I ran across Reed’s name and the cell phone number he had given me back then.
Wondering if he still had the same number and if he would agree to an interview, I called the number and was delighted when Reed answered the phone. When he learned the purpose of my call, he readily agreed to do an interview.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The magical run came to an end for Louisiana Tech Friday night in the Conference USA Tournament Semifinals as a late goal in the second half by Rice gave the Owls the 1-0 decision at Transamerica Field.
The combination of goalkeeper Kylee Seto and the defense had held strong through much of the contest, but in the 79th minute Rice’s Lauren Hughes was able to get behind and stay onside. Her initial shot was saved by Seto, but the follow-up deflection was an easy chest volley into the open net.
