The distinctive sound of clashing football players was in evidence throughout NSU’s Turpin stadium as the Demon football team held its first spring scrimmage Saturday Mar 16. The Demon team is looking to build on the success of Coach Brad Laird’s remarkable first year as NSU’s Head Football Coach. The intensity the players and coaches are bringing to that task is easy to see.
The NSU Demon football team is hard at work preparing for the upcoming season. Under the watchful eyes of second year Head Coach Brad Laird and his staff, the players practiced various game scenarios with actual referees lending further realism to the scrimmage.
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 home opener will see the Demons face off against the Midwestern State University Mustangs Saturday, Sep 7.
The Natchitoches Parish Journal extends its best wishes to the Northwestern State University family for a successful gridiron season. Fork ’em Demons!
