RHS.jpg

Not many people would think a 31-0 game could be called a defensive struggle.
The packed house in attendance Friday for Ruston High’s homecoming game against Natchitoches Central knows better now.
That’s exactly the way things played out on James Field at LJ “Hoss” Garrett Stadium as the Bearcats rolled their record to 5-1 and recorded their first District 2-1A win of the season and their second straight shutout.
Natchitoches Central fell to 3-3 and 0-1.
So how does a team put 31 points on the scoreboard in a defensive struggle? If you blinked, you missed it.

The Cedar Creek Cougars were too much for district rivals Grambling Lab High School on Friday night.
Head coach Ben Haddox’s Cougars defeated the Kittens 53-28 at Cedar Creek Stadium in their first district game of the 2013 season.
The Cougars came our strong, intercepting the ball in the first play and scoring a touchdown on the second play of offense.
“I was really proud the way they came out of the locker room,” Haddox said. “We built our schedule to be difficult in the beginning to help us in district. For us to get a hardfought district win shows our hard work pays off.”

Grambling State interim football coach George Ragsdale has been asking his Tigers to start fast and fnish strong as they look for their first win of the season.
Such dreams were dashed in the first two minutes Saturday in Indianapolis as Alcorn State stormed to a 48-0 win over GSU in the 30th edition of the Circle City Classic.
Alcorn State forced a three-and-out on the first possession and blocked the punt to take over on the Grambling seven-yard line. On the next play John Gibbs Jr. hit Jordan Payne for a touchdown and the rout was on.

Enjoyed the attention, glad to be back home

“This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24.
I changed the words “let us” to “I will” — making it my personal mantra on rising each morning. To this I add a smile, even when I feel bad or just grumpy. You might try it. It’s a great kick-start for my days.
I’ve been sicker than I ever want to be again. I was in three hospitals in one day, but that’s behind me now. And am I ever glad to stop “sleeping around.” In fact, I’m back home finally.
I won’t give you an “organ” recital of all that went wrong, but it did bring the family all together.
