McNeese's Bronson Out For Season

Just about everything has gone right for the McNeese State football team this season.

Until today.

Today, McNeese confirms that senior safety Malcolm Bronson, the Cowboys' best player and vocal leader, will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Bronson hurt his left knee during the third quarter of McNeese's win over Weber State last Saturday.

He had to be helped off the field and did not return to the game. His younger brother, Ryan, played the rest of the game at Malcolm's position.

Bronson was the Cowboys' most valuable player in 2011, making three interceptions and leading the team with 90 tackles.

A first-team all-Southland Conference performer each of his first three years, Bronson was expected to become just the sixth player to make the first team four straight years.

Now Bronson will have to lead from the sidelines, and his teammates will have to win without him on the field.

Bronson was KPLC's Sports Person of the Week less than a month ago.

    If Trump's tax plan is implemented, certified tax attorney, Rusty Stutes of Lake Charles, says it will mean a lower tax bill for businesses, big and small. "That has the potential to be one of the biggest game changers in American tax history, because if you started to allow small businesses to only be taxed once and be taxed at a 15% rate, the potential for unleashing economic growth with something like that could really be extraordinary," he said. As well he says th...
