Old-home week at Bossier Invitational

I popped into the Bossier High gym Thursday afternoon to shoot some mugs of Ruston players for our Area Preps pages.

While I was waiting I ran into a couple of familiar faces who both had impressive prep athletic careers.

Former Parkway High baseball and football standout Jarvis Larry is now a Bossier City police officer. He was working security. Apparently, his 7-year-old son is following in his footsteps, though dad says, "He's better than I was."

Bossier High assistant basketball coach Chris Thompson was a standout on an Airline High team that reached the Top 28 his senior year.

Then there's current Bossier High principal David Thrash, who built quite a baseball power up the road in Benton.

As someone from this area who attended a local high school, it felt like old-home week once again.
