Saints fans will watch their 2016 season come to a close Sunday as New Orleans plays at NFC Champion Atlanta.
But don’t think the Saints don’t have much to play for — both this season and next.

Amaya, Derek.jpg

On the fields of Eddie G. Robinson Memorial and Joe Aillet stadiums, there’s considerable history.
Named after Grambling State and Louisiana Tech universities’ legendary coaches, the stadiums represent a Lincoln Parish pastime — good ol’ fashioned American-made football.
But history of massive portions was made this past football season.
Never in Lincoln Parish history have both universities won a bowl game in the same season.
Low and behold, in the year of 2016, the Bulldogs and Tigers finally cemented that legacy into stone.
