Dear Tech Students,

With three home games already in the books, our players and our coaches have been impressed by the support you have shown so far. This weekend is Homecoming, and we need your support Saturday when YOUR team hosts Idaho at 3 p.m. at Joe Aillet Stadium.When I came to Louisiana Tech back in January, I was told of the talent on our football team, of the great community that Ruston is and of the tremendous growth of this University. What I have been pleasantly surprised with was how great the student support has been for both my family and this football program.We have a lot to play for on Saturday. We’re in the middle of a tough conference race; we’re vying for a bowl game; and we host a challenging opponent that is ranked fourth in the nation in passing offense.More importantly, you have an opportunity to show our alums, our fans and everyone watching on national television what a loud, raucous, game-changing student section is all about. Our players feed off your passion, and it is that incredible school spirit that provides our team a true home field advantage.I can’t wait to see (and hear) each and every one of you Saturday. Get Loud, Be Proud and Wear Blue!

Your head football coach,

Sonny Dykes
