McLeroy: Tech XX was like ‘family’
Reggie McLeroy couldn’t have been blamed had he wanted to file for adoption papers with Tech XX, the beloved mascot for Louisiana Tech University who passed away recently.
The bulldog simply stole the heart of the Ruston artist, just as he had done with so many others who had come to know and befriend him.
“I felt like the passing of Tech XX was just like losing my own family,” said McLeroy.
Probably more than anyone else outside of caretakers, the former Ruston High School basketball player had seen the bulldog during the final eight months of his life.
