As area schools begin to gear up for the new academic year, their football teams are doing the same.
And several are looking for your support to help kick things off.
Ruston High School, Louisiana Tech University and Grambling State University are all set to hold football meet and greet sessions Saturday to allow fans and friends to come out and personally get to know the teams they’ll be cheering for this season.
Just as the start of the school year has begun to near and preparations for fall activities have cranked up, so has the heat.
Heat advisories have been in effect for our area over the past few days and today looks no different with high temperatures expected to reach the 100-degree mark right in the middle of preseason football workouts and band practices.
