Three Dogs get their day

Posted: Updated:
RUSTON, La -

Louisiana Tech hit a rare trifecta on Thursday when the NCAA granted three players rare sixth years of eligibility.  Wide receiver Richie Casey. who missed the 2008 and 2009 seasons with knee injuries, fellow wide receiver Andrew Guillot, who also missed 2008 and 2009 with knee injuries and offensive lineman Andrew Grafree, who had missed one year of junior college with an injury then tore his Achilles and missed all of last season, all get sixth seasons.

NCAA rules say athletes have five years to play four, but all three Bulldogs showed they each had multiple injuries which kept them from being able to fit four years of play in a five year window and the NCAA agreed.  Head coach Skip Holtz said he was thrilled for all three.
