Freshman Robby Price is a forward from Anacoco, Louisiana who was an invited walk-on to the Louisiana Tech men’s basketball team following the arrival of new head coach Michael White.

“I decided to come to Louisiana Tech because of the level of education I knew I was going to receive and the resources I would gain access to which would help me in my future after basketball,” said Price. “When I got the call from Coach [Dusty] May, I knew I could have a chance at the best of both worlds… being a student and an athlete at a Division I program.”

Away from the basketball court and the classroom, Price spends a lot of time with his roommates who are good friends from back home.

“We are all high school athletes so we all enjoy competition in any form, whether it be basketball, flag football or video games,” Price said. “We also go to Temple Baptist Church in Ruston together and travel back home together since we are from the same area.”

Price also participates in church activities associated with Temple Baptist and the Louisiana Tech Baptist College Ministry.

At Temple Baptist on Sunday nights he goes to a bible study which is followed by going to a fellow church members’ house to have dinner and then watch Sunday Night Football.

Price says he enjoys going to the BCM because they cater to the needs of college students with the different ministries they offer as well as a pretty good dollar Soul Food lunch they offer on Tuesdays.

He is a history major and plans to attend law school with the hopes of eventually becoming an FBI agent.


 

 

“Working for the FBI would be interesting because of having to deal with international crime and also having the opportunities to travel,” Price said. “I would use my law degree and my athletic ability and combine the two things I love into a job.”

Traveling is something that Price has done his entire life, having attended nine different schools and lived in 14 houses growing up as his family moved around because of his father’s military career.

He will get plenty of opportunities to travel starting this fall when the Bulldogs embark on their 2011-12 season which will include trips to Wyoming as well as the Western Athletic Conference sites.
