Getting to know the other side
I can sit at a Ruston High football game, a Simsboro basketball contest or a Cedar Creek baseball matchup with rival Oak Grove and be content. While I’m there, I can tell you many of the tendencies, strengths and weaknesses of our best athletes here in Lincoln Parish.
In fact, in my relatively short period of covering sporting events, I’ve become quite efficient at analyzing game situations and our area teams. I have a gift in that area.
What normally doesn’t happen, however, is for me to truly get inside the mind of one of our high school athletes.
