Northwest Area athlete and Athlete Leadership Council member, Channing Ewing reflects on this past weekend’s State Summer Games: “I really enjoyed hanging around all of the dignitaries and sitting by New Orleans Saints Fullback, Jed Collins at Opening Ceremonies. I even got to say the Athlete Oath in front everybody which was cool. I thought the bands that played before opening ceremonies and at the dance were amazing and wonderful!!!! I even thought that the cars at the Golden Oldies Classic Car were awesome!! I really liked getting to meet the football players.”
If you attended the recent State Summer Games, what are your thoughts?
As most of you know our 2012 State Fall Classic took place this past weekend in Carencro, LA. Close to 400 athletes from all across this state of Louisiana participated in aquatics, horseshoes, and softball!
When asked what his favorite part of the weekend was, Channing Ewing, an athlete from our Northwest Area, stated “I really enjoyed meeting former NFL quarterback Jake Delhomme. I thought Jake was great honorary coach! He even had a little humor when he mentioned that the officials were NOT replacements!! I really liked Jake because he played for the Saints and the Ragin Cajuns!!! I really enjoyed talking sports with him.”
