Athletes honored

Posted: Updated:

The National Football Foundation's S. M. McNaughton Chapter of North Louisiana honored local high school football players Thursday for their accomplishments both on and off the field.  Benton's Jordan Shaffer, Calvary's Zachary Kosin, Captain Shreve's Andrew Doughty, Cedar Creek's James Pipes, Ryan Downey and Nicholas Pratt of Byrd, Ruston's JOsh Owen, and Winnfield's Justin Johnson all received the Scholar Athlete and Scholarship Award.  Chapter President Leo Sanford believes it's important to honor these athletes' accomplishments both on the field and in the class room.  All of the athletes agree it's great to be part of a group that only a few can be in.  It's just another example of how much football has changed so many lives in the Arklatex.
