Not only did Louisiana Tech University fans get to celebrate a 27-20 win over the University of Texas-San Antonio on Saturday at Joe Aillet Stadium, they also celebrated the homecoming of one of their own Hall of Famers.
Former Louisiana Tech offensive tackle Willie Roaf will be enshrined into the College Football Hall of Fame 2014 Induction Class in December and was honored at midfield by Tech athletics director Tommy McClelland during halftime of Saturday’s game.
It’s the start of a new week, a new month, and for many, a new fiscal year.
And for Louisiana Tech University, it’s the start of a new era as Les Guice officially took over as university president this morning and Tech also begins its first day as a new member of the NCAA’s Conference-USA.
One of Guice’s first big moves as Tech’s new president will come in athletics as he begins the search for a new athletics director.
If students don’t learn to read effectively they will have trouble throughout their school career, which will then spill over into the rest of their lives.
Beginning later this month, more than 80 volunteers will be headed to local schools to help ensure Lincoln Parish second graders have a fighting chance at achieving their full potential. Approximately 40 students, who have been specially chosen by their principals, will spend 30 minutes per week with these volunteers reading.
One of the best kept secrets in the athletic program at Louisiana Tech University during the recently completed 2013 season was on the tennis courts.

Last weekend, it was announced that the Techsters’ Joanna Nalborska and Alexandra Starkova were chosen as second unit representatives on the All-Louisiana collegiate squad picked by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association.
