GRAMBLING — After watching Grambling State University’s football team play last year, it wouldn’t have taken a seasoned recruiter to realize one of the priorities for the Tigers’ 2013 signing class.

’Dogs put win streaks on TAC floor tonight

in

Two names on the University of Texas-San Antonio roster have been resonating with the coaching staff at Louisiana Tech University this week:
Kannon Burrage and Michael Hale III.
They’re two of the top five scorers in the Western Athletic Conference this season and of primary concern to Head Coach Michael White when his Bulldogs set up on defense in tonight’s 7 p.m. league game at the Thomas Assembly Center.
“We’ve got to stop those two, for sure,” White said. “They’re of major concern to us. They’re two guards who have really been shooting the ball well for UTSA this year.”

The City of Grambling will meet for a public hearing on the long awaited “sagging pants” ordinance, along with two other issues to be addressed before the council conducts its regularly scheduled meeting on Thursday.
Although Grambling Police Chief Tommy Clark brought the indecent exposure issue to the council’s attention in November, the issue was put off until the February meeting to accommodate the students of Grambling State University. If passed, those exposing their undergarments will be subject to fines or jail time if found to be in violation of the ordinance.

Slim down from Super Bowl snacks

As everyone knows, the Super Bowl was this past Sunday and as many watched some super-sized football players run up and down the gridiron, too many of us downed (pun intended) some super-sized snacks. And, we definitely didn’t burn off any calories shouting at the referees, while waiving your Ravens’ towel or jumping up and down in your 49ers’ miners hardhat.
