Ruston slated to host I-20 All-Star game in December

Ruston High School will have the great privilege to host the 2021 I-20 All-Star game on Sunday, December 19, at 2 p.m.

“It’s a great privilege to do it for the kids that get selected,” Ruston head coach Jerrod Baugh said. “Location-wise, it makes a lot of sense to do it in Ruston, and we enjoy it. I really hope to have a great crowd for the kids and to see a great game.”

Not only will the Bearcats be hosting that day, three key Ruston seniors have been chosen to take part in the festivities for the NELA team. Senior defensive lineman Dennis Williams and senior wide receivers Dawson Willis and Dylan Rhone were named to the team. Willis is listed as a starter, while Williams and Rhone are both alternates.

The Bearcats have won six games in a row and are in control of their own District 2-5A destiny. They face another tough challenge Friday night as the Alexandria Senior High Trojans will come to James Field at Garrett Stadium for a 7 p.m. kickoff. It will be the first time the Bearcats have hosted a home game in nearly a month.
