The Louisiana Tech Football team will make the hour trip west to Shreveport to host an open practice on Tuesday, April 18, at 6 p.m. on the campus of Captain Shreve High School at Lee Hedges Stadium.
“We are excited to take our spring practice to Shreveport,” head coach Sonny Cumbiesaid. “North Louisiana and Shreveport-Bossier are very important to us because of our recruiting and also our alumni and lettermen. We wanted to reach out to alumni and really give the kids of that community and the coaches of that area a chance to come see us practice and interact with us. It is a way for us to give back and say that we appreciate everyone in that area. We look forward to seeing them in the fall for our games and we are excited to see them at our practice.”
Attendance and parking for the practice are free. A food truck will be onsite for fans in attendance. There will be an autograph signing session following the event, where fans can meet and greet Bulldog student-athletes and coaches.
