What It Takes To Play Sports In College, Part 2

My story as a high school athlete is typical and easily relatable to most athletes. I came from a small school, no one really cared if I went to play in college, I didn’t have much support, and I surely didn’t have anyone to show me how to navigate the collegiate system. My first year I was Red Shirted (meaning I did not play). An athlete can be red shirted for multiple reasons such as poor grades, injuries, lack of maturity, weaker than expected skills, too many athletes to suit up, etc. With that said I excelled to be a record breaker, a record setter, and a record holder. So can you by choosing the right program. This is one of the most difficult things to do because your selection of programs depends on who has interest in you. Your race and religion will not matter to most coaches. The school you like may not like you as an athlete. The school that chose me didn’t select me because I was a prolific scorer or rebounder.

LA House Approves Bill to Purchase Team Gleason Foundation License Plates

A House committee approved a bill to let Louisiana residents buy Team Gleason Foundation license plates to help a former New Orleans Saints player in his fight against ALS.

Steve Gleason, one of the most beloved players in Saints history, was a safety from 2000 to 2008 and was diagnosed with ALS, also called Lou Gehrig’s disease, in 2011. He and his wife established the Team Gleason Foundation shortly after that to inspire and show other ALS patients they “can not only live but thrive.”

Most Saints fans recall his blocked punt against the Atlanta Falcons, which helped lead the Saints to victory, on the night the Superdome reopened after Hurricane Katrina.

Lady Tigers Fall Short in Semifinals

The Logansport Lady Tigers’ historical season came to an end in Sulphur at the hands of district foe LaSalle by a score of 12-5. The Lady Tigers, making their first ever trip to the semifinals, struck first in the opening inning scoring 3 runs. Leadoff hitter and LSUA signee Katherine Atkins got the game going with a leadoff single to left field. After a walk by Destini Briggs, Logansport had runners on the corners when Mara Lee Briggs laid down a beautiful bunt for a single to the second baseman that scored Atkins and moved her sister to third. Two wild pitches by LaSalle pitcher Taylor Snow advanced the Briggs sisters allowing them to score. In the bottom of the inning LaSalle answered back in a big way and scores 7 runs on 5 hits and 2 Lady Tiger errors.

Local Anglers Place in T-H Marine FLW Tournament on Toledo Bend

Boater Ken Smith of Dallas, Texas, caught five bass Saturday weighing 21 pounds, 12 ounces, to win the 2019 T-H Marine FLW Bass Fishing League (BFL) Cowboy division tournament on Toledo Bend. Smith earned $8,303 for his victory.

Due to a shortage of coangler participants, Smith had to fish in a boater-onboater format and was paired with River Lee of Nacogdoches, Texas. It was a successful day on the water for the duo, as Smith won the event while Lee finished the event in 12th place and won $431.
