The NSU Demons men’s basketball team joined forces with the Natchitoches Police Department in the inaugural Demons and Badges for the Win event, Wednesday, June 15 at the Ben D. Johnson Park’s basketball courts. The NSU ballplayers and police officers played basketball with about 25 area children.
The event is designed to further introduce the team to the community and to break down barriers between the police and the community’s young people.
Coach Gipson and his staff joined in the fun as did Mayor Williams and Councilpersons Petite and Elie. Staff members of the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame were also on hand to sign up youngsters for the upcoming Junior Training Camp to be held at NSU Saturday, June 25.
The hard working young men of the Demon basketball team once again showed themselves to be good sports and good role models to our community’s youth. NSU Athletics is a force for good on and off campus. Fork ‘em Demons!
