DEVILLE — In a game of old-fashioned, smash-mouth football pitting size against speed, it was the bigger and stronger team that won Friday night as Buckeye downed Cedar Creek 23-8.

RAYVILLE — Heading into Friday night’s contest at Rayville, Ruston High School was dealing with the loss of its primary offensive weapon — senior running back Juwuan Wright.
Fortunately for the Bearcats, they had plenty of firepower left in their arsenal.
Wright was injured in the third quarter of last week’s RHS win at Airline. While coaches hoped for the best, it was later determined that Wright suffered a broken fibula and he underwent surgery last Tuesday on the season-ending injury.

There will probably never be another quarterback like Tim Rattay at Louisiana Tech University.
Those come along rarely and when they do, they blaze a trail littered with highlight reel games and a U-Haul load of records.
Now a wide receivers’ coach for his alma mater, Rattay threw for Bulldogs’ single season records of 4,943 yards and 46 touchdowns and for a career-setting standard of 12,643 yards.
Before he starred at Tech, “Terrific Tim” led the nation’s junior colleges in passing with 3,526 yards and 26 touchdowns during his one season at Scottsdale Community College in Arizona.
