NSU slates Signing Day luncheon Wednesday at Prather Coliseum


Other than game days, there’s no bigger event in college football each year than National Signing Day, coming up next Wednesday, Feb. 1.

Northwestern State fans can get the first look at the Demons’ 2017 recruiting class and enjoy lunch at Prather Coliseum Wednesday for $20. Video highlights of each of the NSU football signees will be shown while head coach Jay Thomas and coaching staff members discuss the class.

Season tickets for NSU’s five home games in 2017 will go on sale at the event. The Demons have five Southland Conference home dates, including FCS playoff team Central Arkansas for homecoming on Oct. 21.

The annual NSU Signing Day Luncheon will also feature insight into the Lady Demon soccer recruiting class from head coach George Van Linder, the Louisiana Coach of the Year for 2016.

Each guest will get a package of credentials spotlighting each new NSU competitor. Door prizes will be awarded.

Food will be served beginning at 11:45. The program will start about 12:15 and should wrap up about 1.

The NSU football staff will be featured guests on the annual Signing Day Special Demon Huddle radio show from 4:30-6:30 on 100.7 FM KZBL, the flagship station of the Demon Sports Network. The show, co-hosted by Patrick Netherton and Dustin Cross, will originate from Cane River Grill in Natchitoches, with supporters welcome to attend.
