Thomas2-NSU signing day

Northwestern State supporters are invited to hear Demon football coach Jay Thomas and his staff, along with Lady Demon soccer coach George Van Linder, discuss their 2015-16 recruiting results during NSU’s annual National Signing Day luncheon Wednesday, Feb. 3, on the practice court at Prather Coliseum.

A buffet-style lunch costing $20 will be served beginning at 11:45 with the program expected to start about20 minutes later. Reservations are not necessary. The event has attracted up to 200 people in prior years.

Video packages on each football signee will be shown at the event, presented by NSU Athletics and the Demons Unlimited Foundation. Guests will receive biographical sketches with career highlights of all football and soccer signees.

Guests will also get an update on the plans to slightly adjust the reserved seating configuration at Turpin Stadium for the 2016 season. New chairback seating will be installed thanks to a $500,000 gift by former Demon football player Bryant Lewis and his wife Heloise. The enhanced seats will require a limited number of seat relocations, said associate athletics director Adam Jonson.
