Jenkins provides power for Cedar Creek offense

092213 Creek Jenkins Run c.jpg

It’s no secret that Cedar Creek can throw the football when it needs to.
But it’s also a proven fact that the Cougars like to run it more than put the ball in the air.
And it certainly helps your ground attack when you have one of the top rushers in the state, and he’s only a sophomore.
That’s the case for the 9-3 Cougars as they head toward Friday’s Division IV showdown at Vermilion Catholic.
Donald Jenkins has proven to be Cedar Creek’s workhorse and ended regular-season play as the state’s eighth-ranked rushing leader with 1,507 yards and 19 touchdowns on 182 carries.

Head coach Teresa Weatherspoon and the Lady Techsters return to action at 11 a.m. today when they face Ole Miss at Tad Smith Coliseum.
It’s a relatively quick turnaround for a team that bused from Thibodaux to Oxford following Monday night’s game and that didn’t arrive at its hotel until 3:30 a.m.

Aldermen all on board for Amtrak

There’s no doubt about it, Ruston is a railroad town. The community was founded in 1883 after construction of the first rail line from Shreveport to Monroe.
Over the years, the coming of both freight service and passenger service helped Ruston grow until eventually it became the parish seat. At its peak, in the early 1900s, the young community sported six rail depots, several downtown hotels and a list of businesses that either began or flourished because of the railroad.
