NSU’s Annual Summer Victory Tour 2015

JayThomasVictoryTourNorthwestern State supporters in and around Shreveport-Bossier gather Monday evening at Superior’s Steakhouse to hear from Demon football coach Jay Thomas and kick off the second week of NSU’s annual summer Victory Tour engaging supporters and friends around the state.

Superior’s Steakhouse at 855 Pierremont Road is the site Monday for a 6 p.m. reception, with Thomas, athletics director Greg Burke and others addressing the crowd midway through the two-hour party open to the public at no charge.

In his first two years as head coach, Thomas has led the Demons to their best back-to-back seasons since 2003-04, including record-shattering offensive numbers, wins over nationally-ranked FCS foes and last year’s 30-27 victory at old rival Louisiana Tech in Ruston.

All stops along the tour will feature a brief program in which Thomas and other Demons coaches will speak to the crowd. Each stop will last approximately two hours

The Vernon Parish Tour Stop follows on Wednesday at Mexico Lindo, 2503 McRae Road in Leesville, beginning at 6.

A night later, Rapides Parish and surrounding areas are the focus when the Victory Tour comes to Alexandria at 6 p.m. on Thursday at Buffalo Wild Wings (2711 South MacArthur Drive).

The Red River Parish Tour Stop will be held Friday at the home of former Coushatta mayor Tray Murray, 185 Army Road, beginning at 6:30.
