Showing our support for BGCNCLA

The Boys and Girls Club of North Central Louisiana continues to provide residents with services needed for local youth.
But now is our chance, as a community, to give back to them as well.
The club has a couple upcoming events as well as a new volunteering program that will allow community members to give back.
First up is the Diaper Drive set from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday at Super 1 Foods. Last year, the drive brought in 1,700 packages of diapers and $700 in monetary donations, which the club turned around and gave back to LifeChoices.

The Army Black Knights feature a triple-option offense completely different than Louisiana Tech’s spread attack.
But there will still be two teams of similar mindset on the field as Tech and Army square off at 2:30 Saturday at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
Tech has lost two straight game while Army has dropped three straight since a 28-12 season-opening win against Morgan State. Army has then lost consecutive games at Ball State (40-12), against Stanford (34-20) and against Wake Forest (25-11).
