The NSU Football Team has been relentlessly focused on a singular goal, victory, since their first day reporting back to campus. This Sunday, August 22, marked their second scrimmage. The Demons came out 99 men strong to learn, prepare and get better under fourth year Coach Brad Laird and his staff. The team played game scenarios under “live” conditions, with the situation unfolding as it may, with officials calling as in an actual game.
The Demon football team has been putting forth a tremendous amount of effort into preparing for the upcoming season. In the weight room, team meetings and in the brutal heat of the summer sun beating on Turpin Stadium’s AstroTurf, the players are putting in the work necessary to succeed.
The Demons’ first game will be in Denton, Texas vs. the University of North Texas. Their home opener will be Saturday, September 18 at 6:00 against the University of Texas at Martin. Come on out and enjoy some hard-hitting Division I football, all in our local area. It is an amazing opportunity not every community enjoys. Take advantage of it!
The Natchitoches Parish Journal wishes to extend its best wishes to the Demons for a safe and successful season. Fork ’em Demons!
