Sports on Call: Preview of the Football State Championship

Northwestern State University and the City of Natchitoches will host the Louisiana State High School Football State Championship games at Turpin Stadium on the Campus of NSU December 27-30. The games were moved from the Superdome in New Orleans to Natchitoches because of Covid related attendance restrictions in the City of New Orleans.

Dr. Chris Maggio, President of NSU and Demon Athletics Director Greg Burke were instrumental in attracting this exciting event and incredible economic opportunity for Natchitoches and the surrounding area. Natchitoches will host 18 teams over the four day span of scheduled games. Teams from each region of Louisiana will participate and the fans, bands, pep squads and support staff from each team will descend upon this area and enjoy the magical Christmas Season that Natchitoches is known for nationally.
