Creek, Ruston lead way on All-Parish grid team

in
FootballParish.jpg

Cedar Creek quarterback Mark Van and Ruston quarterback Ben LeBlanc are best friends off the field, so it’s only fitting that the pair were two of the top award winners on the 2013 All-Lincoln Parish team as announced by the Ruston Daily Leader.
Van had the numbers to edge past his friend to become the first team signal caller on the All-Parish team and the Bert Jones Offensive Player of the Year Award winner, but LeBlanc’s tenacious play, including a game in which he led the Bearcats to a win after being sick all week, earned him the nod as the 2013 Kyle Williams Spirit Award winner.

Each year, the flu kills more than 36,000 Americans.

Wiley Hilburn will be missed

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

“The spoken discourse may roll on strongly as the great tidal wave; but, like the wave, it dies at last feebly on the sands. It is heard by few, remembered by still fewer, and fades away, like an echo in the mountains, leaving no token of power. It is the written human speech that gave power and permanence to human thought.”
Albert Pike wrote this, but it could just as easily have been written by Wiley Hilburn. Wiley has now passed on. I, along with many, will truly miss him.
