Aldredge honored at NSU
NATCHITOCHES — Former Cedar Creek football standout Justin Aldredge has been awarded Northwestern State’s prestigious Jack Clayton Scholarship in recognition of his outstanding academic and athletic achievements in the Demons’ football program.
The Jack Clayton Scholarship, along with the Jack Clayton Plaza in the south end zone of Turpin Stadium, was created in 1999 by former players of NSU Coach Jack Clayton, whose teams won four Gulf States Conference championships from 1957-66 and whose 1966 team was undefeated and ranked No. 1 in the nation at the end of the season. The recipient of the Jack Clayton Scholarship should be dedicated to academics and must display Coach Clayton’s trademark characteristics of leadership, integrity, and work ethic.
