Three full days of football made for a zealous fan

okdavis.jpg

Football overload.
Last weekend I watched games from morning until night. Both days.
It all kicked off on the Saturday with defending champ Grambling facing North Carolina A&T in the Celebration Bowl.
There was an obvious storyline in the matchup, that being Aggies’ Head Coach Rod Broadway having previously served as the Tigers’ boss.
Broadway’s current squad outlasted GSU, 21-14, using a spike play in the final minute to secure the victory.
After the Celebration Bowl, our remote clicker stayed busy, switching around to see portions of five other postseason attractions.

Cedar Creek marched its way a 11-2 record this season, earning the No. 2 seed in the Div. IV Louisiana High School Athletic Association playoffs as the Cougars blanked Hanson Memorial 42-0 before falling 40-34 in a hard-fought second round game against St. Mary’s.
That success shined a spotlight on a pair of Cougars who have earned Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Class 1A All-State accolades.
Cedar Creek senior defensive lineman Ben Slusher (5-11, 225) earned First Team All-State honors after totaling 77 tackles, two quarterback sacks and 11 tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

Peanut hulls almost foil chance at ‘Big Nasty’

in
Harris, Glynn.jpg

Trail camera photos of a mature buck in Jackson Parish revealed that he was a big deer. The fact that photos only showed him moving at night for the past two years, never showing himself during daylight hours, revealed the buck’s nasty attitude. Thus, members of Two Creeks Hunting Club in Jackson parish hung a moniker on him. They called him “Big Nasty.”
On Dec. 10, “Big Nasty” met his maker but came within a crunchy peanut shell of making his get-away.

Kamara could change the equation in Falcons-Saints rematch

in

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — For Saints rookie sensation Alvin Kamara, a rematch with rival Atlanta is all about unfinished business.
Kamara, who has 1,336 yards from scrimmage and a team-leading 12 touchdowns as both a runner and receiver, played little in New Orleans’ first meeting with the Falcons.
He was knocked out of the Dec. 7 game in Atlanta with a concussion during the Saints’ first offensive series and watched the rest of the game, which the Saints lost 20-17, on a television in the locker room.

The event gave area children an opportunity to share cookies and cocoa and take a picture with their pets and Santa. Pictured is 10-year-old Gracie Belle Jones, a fifth-grader at Cedar Creek School, getting her portrait taken with Santa and her dog Fred.

Plan plodding forward for lake as water source

in

FARMERVILLE — Farmerville Mayor Stein Baughman sees parallels between local efforts to use Lake D’Arbonne as a source of drinking water and the need for a fourth bridge across the Ouachita River to serve traffic needs in Ouachita Parish.
Both are things badly needed and not likely to happen anytime in the foreseeable future.
Baughman was part of a local delegation that traveled recently to Jefferson, Texas, to see how five counties and municipalities use Lake of the Pines as a source of drinking water.
