Local Sports Reporter Buddy Davis Put Louisiana Tech In The Spotlight

Longtime Lincoln Parish sports reporter OK Buddy Davis passed away over the weekend at the age of 72. La Tech athletics director Tommy McClelland says Buddy Davis put Louisiana Tech athletics on the map with his stories that he began writing over five decades ago.

Davis also covered Eddie Robinson’s legendary football teams at Grambling State and received criticism for it, because he was a white man reporting on a historically black school.
