A lot of excitement is going on in Natchitoches on Friday and sometimes Thursday nights, now that high school gridiron action is happening. Natchitoches Leadership Through Athletics Committee (NLTAC) has started the annual Player-of-the-Week with Raising Cane’s Restaurant citing outstanding players each week according to statistical data from Lakeview, Natchitoches Central and St. Mary’s High Schools.
