Tech 'true winner' of Poinsettia Bowl

in

The Louisiana Tech players, coaches, fans, band, cheerleaders and Regal Blues were the true winners of the Poinsettia Bowl events.
We might not have won the football game in points, but more importantly, our Dawgs are winners of the game of life.
A tremendous amount of class, talent, spirit, generosity and sportsmanship was shown all over San Diego.
The Louisiana Tech University  Alumni Association did a wonderful job of planning entertaining events. Thank you for the effort and success. We are proud to be Dawg fans. Dawgs rule.
