Jazz Fest evokes nostalgia

in
Boatright, T. Scott 14.jpg

Davis, Ok 2015.jpg

Short servings of sports with your Sunday morning coffee:
DANDY DEPTH: If the recently concluded spring drills offer any measuring stick, Louisiana Tech University has more than just one quarterback on its 2015 roster.
Ever since his transfer from the University of Florida earlier this year, Jeff Driskel has been marked down as the starting field commander for the Bulldogs this season.
The former Florida prep Gatorade Player of the Year will likely still have that label, but it may not be without a fierce battle from several others when preseason training kicks off in August.
