With the Sammy Baugh Award winner and Biletnikoff Award candidate gone, it would only be expected that Louisiana Tech University could have a dropoff in their passing attack during the 2013 season.
But one area that is expected to be just as effective as last year’s march to the No. 1 ranked scoring offense (51.5 ppg) among Football Bowl Subdivision programs is the running game.
Ah, yes, that ground attack which was as vital to the Bulldogs’ offensive efficiency in 2012 as the more publicized passing schemes.
Remember, with the run, Tech averaged nearly 230 yards per game.

Dykes pulls surprise at scrimmage

in

BERKELEY, Calif. — Sonny Dykes’ debut spring game at the University of California recently featured a running back that wowed the crowd of more than 5,000 with his size and speed, but no one knew he had run out of eligibility.
On third down, a former Bear and current Seattle Seahawks running back took a handoff on third down and ran unscathed into the end zone to a rousing cheer. Of course, the defense was instructed not to touch him and when he pulled off his helmet, he received a rousing cheer.

NEW ORLEANS — Terry Bradshaw obviously knows football.
He knows horses, too.
When he and co-owner Steve Davison of Ruston first purchased Graydar, they were unable to get him on the track as a two-year old and only three times last year due to various illnesses and injuries.

RHS piling up baseball wins

For the past two years, Ruston High School’s baseball team has marched deep into the Class 5A Louisiana High School Athletic Association playoffs.
If nearly 25 games worth of action so far supplies any measuring stick, look for the Bearcats to make another major dent in postseason competition at the sport’s highest classification.
After completing a three-game series of two different opponents during Easter weekend, Ruston High has a 19-4 record entering a District 2-5A series against perennial rival West Monroe High later this week.

Degrie, Elizabeth (New).jpg

While I’m immensely thankful that I was lucky enough to find the man I would marry at such a young age (we met when I was 21 and were married when I was 25), I certainly never expected that to be the case.
