NBC 10 Sports has confirmed that a football player from Ruston High School has tested positive for COVID-19. As a result workouts have been suspended until July 13.

Bearcats head coach, Jerrod Baugh, spoke to NBC 10’s Chris Demirdjian on Tuesday.

“I talked to the young man’s stepdad, ” says Baugh. “Thought he had a sinus infection, went to the doctor … after a Thursday workout, I believe on the weekend, he started having some symptoms. He was out the entire week, all last week, while they were waiting on the test results.”

We’ll have more on NBC 10 Sports, Tuesday at 6:00 and 10:00.
