Simoneaux’s squad two weeks away from opener

The Louisiana Tech University baseball squad is pushing forward as preparation for the new season continues with the Bulldogs set to begin the second week of official practices with exactly two weeks remaining until the start of the 2013 season.
With a mix of conditioning, practice and intrasquads, Head Coach Wade Simoneaux and his staff is keeping the veteran squad busy in order to prepare the players for the grueling schedule ahead.
“We have to get everybody healthy,” Simoneaux said. “We are nicked up from all the running, weights and conditioning that we do. We stretch 27 of our 37 guys, so we are missing 10 right now, but they will be back and ready to go by the time the season starts. We have to really push them on the weekends to have them ready for the grind that is in front of us.”
Two weeks remain until the Diamond ’Dogs begin the campaign Feb. 15 against UT Arlington on the road and the battle for starting spots come opening day has already begun among the players.

Gosh, has it been 25 years since that memorable day in San Diego, Calif.?
Yes, 25 years.
It was a day that all of us, regardless of how we might have grown up or what our beliefs might be, had to pause for a moment and simply admire and appreciate the path that Doug Williams had traveled to get there.

Sometimes even when everything bad imaginable happens, fate smiles on you and bad turns to good. For Casey Young, who hunts his family property in Concordia Parish, the good couldn’t have been better on the afternoon of Tuesday, November 13 as he stood over the fallen form of a huge 18 point buck sporting lights-out headgear.
With a score of 205 6/8, the buck currently sits atop the non-typical archery category in the Simmons Sporting Goods big buck contest.

Different people coming together

At the beginning of the year, I was invited, along with others, to share my New Year’s resolution to be put in the Ruston Daily Leader. Part of my resolution is to do more writing. I never imagined that yet another invitation from the Ruston Leader would come asking me to write a monthly column. But, alas, it did, and so here I am writing and sharing with you, and fulfilling part of my resolution. And so my prayer is that my words will lead our thoughts and lives toward God and each other.
