What could have been?

There is no football at Independence Stadium this weekend. That's not all that unusual this late in December.

Actually, last year was the exception when the state football championships were moved here in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

The championships have returned to New Orleans, where they belong.

But we almost had football here this weekend at Independence Stadium.


If Texas High had defeated Copperas Cove in the Texas state playoffs last week, then we would have football in Shreveport. We would have had the Texas playoffs here for a second time in three weeks.

Alas, Texas High lost.

The stadium will be empty.

And we'll think about what could have been.
