Oak Treehopper
I'm thinking it's a oak treehopper. It's a little hard to tell from this angle but I just found one just recently that was a oak treehopper and I live just a few Parishes above you in Caddo.

I might start by looking at
Platycotis vittata and relatives, but I don't know.

Oak Treehopper?

Another angle could be helpful.
