In conjunction with the most historic athletics capital campaign in Louisiana Tech history, the University has launched an official “Quest for Excellence” website at www.quest4excellence.com.
The website is geared towards providing Tech alums and fans a vehicle for accessing all of the information on the $20 million campaign which is centered around the construction of a 90,000-plus square-foot multipurpose facility in the south end zone of Joe Aillet Stadium. Commitments have already been made for $9 million.
Following the official announcement on the “Quest for Excellence campaign,” the website is completed and live as it contains the official press release, renderings of the facility, naming opportunities, messages from Tech President Dan Reneau and Athletics Director Bruce Van De Velde, bios on the Leadership Team which consists of Steve Davison, former Bulldogs’ quarterback great Terry Bradshaw and Drake Mills as well as a link where individuals can make donations towards the project.
Hunters and campers will pay no sales tax on firearms, ammunition and hunting supplies during the Louisiana Second Amendment Weekend Sales Tax Holiday Friday through Sunday. During these three days, eligible purchases are exempt from the 4 percent state sales tax and all local sales taxes.
The exemption applies to a wide range of supplies, including:
• Shotguns, rifles, pistols, revolvers or other handguns;
• Ammunition intended to be fired from a gun or firearm;
Louisiana Tech went through its second set of two-a-days practice Monday with an early morning practice on the Tech practice fields and an evening practice in Joe Aillet Stadium.
The change of venue in the evening practice led to a change of schedule as the team went through 1-on-1, 7-on-7 and the team (11-on-11) periods first before going into individual offense/defense workouts.
The team’s offensive line continued to stand out in terms of hard work and consistency, despite some movement around the depth chart due to minor injuries.
