Former Bulldog delivers spiritual message

A blast from Louisiana Tech's past appeared on Wednesday night prior to the rules meeting for this week's Bassmaster Central Open on the Red River.

Former Bulldog baseball player Bobby Brasher, one of the fastest and best outfielders to play for coach Gravy Patterson during the early 1970's, gave his personal testimony to the 400-plus anglers during a pre-tournament dinner at the Summer Grove Baptist Church.

Brasher, subbing for buddy and Elite angler Jay Yelas, used a Noah analogy in talking to the competitors. Brasher attends the same Sunday School class in Tyler that Yelas attends.

"My wife and I would love to move back to Louisiana one day," Brasher said. Brasher retired as a high school coach recently and now works with troubled youth in Tyler.
