Weldon is golden

One of the great things coming out of Louisiana Tech's spring football practices was the emergence of Bossier City's Weldon Brown as a potential defensive star for coach Jack Bicknell's club.

Brown is the kind of athlete that every coach loves to have. No matter where you put him on the field ... running back, wide receiver, slot, cornerback, safety, kick returns ... the kid just stands out.

Although Brown admitted on Saturday after Tech's Bone Bowl that he would rather be playing offense, he said it with a smile and with the attitude that he was willing to play wherever he had to play to help the team and to get on the field. Bicknell would like about 21 more Weldon Browns.

Brown was a lucky catch for the Bulldogs and Woodlawn senior Dennis Morris could have the same instant impact when he reports for fall drills in Ruston. With former Captain Shreve Gator Wes Day expected to see significant playing time at defensive end, along with Airline's Chad Beverage and Springhill's Brian White at linebacker, Tech's defense could have a lot of northwest Louisina flavor.
