The signature sounds of the fall season, band music and the clash of football players, have been in evidence on the NSU campus as the Spirit of Northwestern Marching Band and the Demon Football Team put on the final polish for the home opener against the Grambling State University Tigers Saturday, September 8th.

The Spirit of Northwestern Band has been delighting audiences for over 100 years with their superb halftime shows at every home football game. In addition to the musicians, the band’s 320 members include a flag line, dancers and color guard. One can hear the rehearsals all over Natchitoches each morning during the football season, truly one of the nicer things about life in our city!

The NSU Demon football team was likewise hard at work preparing for Saturday’s home opener. Under the watchful eyes of Head Coach Laird and his staff, the players ran drills and prepared. On the field, in the weight room and in the classroom, these exemplary young men are putting in the hard work that leads to true excellence.

The Natchitoches Parish Journal extends its best wishes to the Northwestern State University family for a successful season. Fork ’em Demons!
