College basketball jerseys don’t have a “C” patch on them to represent a team captain.
If they did, Jacobi Boykins would certainly have one on his No. 0 uniform.
The 6-6, 175-pound sharpshooter who has never seen a three-pointer he didn’t like, returns as the lone senior for the 2017-18 Louisiana Tech Dunkin’ Dogs.
Boykins was originally part of a star-studded, five-person signing class in November of 2013. Three of them eventually transferred and the fourth is fellow teammate Joniah White who is a redshirt junior.

Everyone remembers their favorite teacher and how much of an impact he or she had on our lives.

While many education mentors can lay claim to the man I proudly am, none have been around as long as Metairie’s Ecole Classique School headmaster Sal Federico, better known as “Mr. Sal.”

While Mr. Sal was not a physically commanding figure, hovering a little above five feet, his presence demanded your full attention and required you to listen to every word he uttered. He was the type of person who did not want to have to repeat himself.

Celebrate 10 years of Adopt-A-School

The Adopt-A-School concept is simple. Pair up a local school with a local church, community service group, business or community stakeholder and work together to make the community a better place.
While it sounds great in theory, in practice, it’s not always so easy.
