“If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”
In anticipation of State Fall Classic this weekend in Carencro, LA, we thought we would share a picture from way back…7 years ago in 2007! We hope you enjoy this blast from the (near) past and hope we will see you this weekend!
On Saturday, November 8th, Special Olympics College Programs LSU and Alabama will meet in a Unified flag football rematch on the campus of LSU. Last year, SO College LSU won with a 19-7 score and are ready to defend that victory on home turf! The public is invited to attend the game which will take place at the LSU Student Recreation Complex (directly behind the UREC Building) with kickoff scheduled for 9am.
Half time will feature the SOLA Cheerleaders, the LSU Tiger Girls and a fun surprise! Upon conclusion of the game, awards will be distributed to each team.
