Local football stars shine
Football victories this past weekend compel me to move this column into the world of sports.
Several weeks ago your writer shared some thoughts along the lines of “don’t give up” and words to that effect when it came to supporting the Louisiana Tech Football Bulldogs. If one will recall, we had several games that were nail biters, and several times we came up on the short end. We almost beat nationally ranked Southern Mississippi. We had the weird “instant replay” during the Hawaii game that took about a half hour and disrupted our momentum. We had Houston on the ropes and came up short. We took Southeastern conference Mississippi State to overtime before we came up short. At least three of those four games could have been victories for the ’Dogs, but we came up short. But the fans, coaches and players refused to quit.
