The Shreveport Times has launched its Athlete of the Week 32 ballot, and it features 15 talented student-athletes from greater Northwest Louisiana schools. These athletes were chosen based on their outstanding performance the previous week or due to a nomination from their coach.
Voting is now open and fans can support their favorite athlete at shreveporttimes.com under “sports”. Voting runs until Thursday night and the winner will be announced on Saturday.
The winning candidate will receive a duffle bag, a boxed lunch combo and some additional swag courtesy of Raising Cane’s. They will also get to enjoy a short story about their achievements in The Times.
The Week 32 ballot consists of Clayton Brandon from Airline baseball, Cade Bedgood from Calvary baseball, Tyler Nichols from Byrd baseball, Cody Snelgrove from Southwood baseball, Bradley Dick from Lakeside baseball, Meaux Carroll from Benton softball, Lillian Soto from Cedar Creek softball, Regan Davlin from North DeSoto softball, Selena Nunnery from Northwood softball, Bryn Danzy from Red River softball, Oshmar Hall from BTW track, Franklin Roemer from Loyola track, Bryan Madden from Ruston track, Jesus Cordova from Parkway track, and Jameka Hicks from Haynesville track.
The Shreveport Times Athlete of the Week program is sponsored by Raising Cane’s and the Shreveport-Bossier Sports Commission. It features high school athletes in Northwest Louisiana sports that are not football, such as volleyball, cross country, swimming and cheerleading.
Raising Cane’s is a fast-food company based in Louisiana, specializing in chicken strips and chicken sandwiches. They have over 500 restaurants worldwide and are committed to giving back to the community.
This year’s previous winners of the Athlete of the Week program include Jacob Kershaw from North DeSoto, Isabelle Russell and Tate Sellers from Benton, and Ernie Perry III from Airline.
The Shreveport Times encourages the community to support these talented athletes by voting for the student-athlete they admire the most.
