I am not the type of person who likes to reinvent the wheel. If I see something working elsewhere, I am more than willing to attempt it in my own business or my life. In that vein, I believe sports tourism is a potential revenue boost for our economy, and our government coffers.
As I look at the communities around me, I see multiple opportunities that they are seizing in the areas of sports tourism. Ruston is building a new sports complex ready to house large tournaments and bring thousands of people and millions of dollars into their community.
