2017 OUTLOOK In hopes of keeping its recent run of success, the Northwestern State baseball team turns to a familiar face in 2017. Former All-Southland Conference first baseman Bobby Barbier begins his head coaching career at his alma mater, looking to build upon back-to-back 20-win seasons in the Southland Conference. Doing so will test both the Demons and Barbier’s mettle. “We had three teams in the top 51 of the RPI last year,” Barbier said of the Southland. “Lamar and UNO were up there, too. It shows how good our league is. Every weekend, you see someone knocking off a Power 5 team.” Barbier, the first former Demon player to skipper the squad since Johnnie Emmons in 1989, is far from the only new face around Brown-Stroud Field this season. The Demons’ roster is stocked with 16 newcomers, including a handful of pitchers who could fill a number of roles on the NSU staff under first-year pitching coach Chris Bertrand. Junior-college right-handers Dan Hlad, Cole Langdon and John Carter Sanner join freshmen Emile Lege and Evan Daigle as newcomers. Bertrand also has experienced seniors in right-handers Evan Tidwell (10 career wins) and Tim Winders and left-hander Devin Bear (3.05 ERA, 21 appearances in 2016). Talented sophomores Nathan Jones (2-2, 3.10, 5 saves) and Austin Reich (3-2, 2.78, 1 save) are primed for larger roles after strong debut seasons. Sophomore Jesse Fruge (1-0, 2.25) was solid in his first collegiate season and gives Barbier a second left-handed option out of the bullpen. “It will be nice to see how those new guys react to it,” Barbier said. “We lost Adam (Oller). We lost Chase Hymel. We lost Jeff Stovall. We lost guys we can count on to go out and eat innings. We’ve got very talented arms. This year, as much as any year I’ve been here, we have arm talent.” The loss of Oller (8-1, 1.23), a second-team All-American and 20th-round draft pick (Pittsburgh), opened up the Friday starter’s role for the first time since the first half of the 2014 season. The ripple effect carries into the bullpen where Jones and Reich split time as the team’s closer in 2016. “Roles are still developing,” said Barbier, NSU’s pitching coach for the past two seasons. “We like to let it play itself out, especially the bullpen guys. I think you can put a lot of pressure on a guy by labeling him.” Offensively, the Demons have to replace a pair of draftees -- center fielder Nick Heath (16th round, Kansas City) and catcher Daniel Garner (32nd round, Philadelphia) -as well as the 2015 SLC Hitter of the Year (Cort Brinson) and 2014 draftee Bret Underwood. Despite those losses, the Demons return several veterans in the lineup, including second-team All-Southland Conference second baseman David Fry. Fry batted .264 with a team-best seven home runs while starting all 57 games in his sophomore season. Fry enters the season having started NCAA Regionals: 1991 • 1994 • 2005

102 consecutive games. Barbier said he plans to deploy Fry in more of a super utility role this season. “David’s a tremendous player, very versatile,” he said. “He’s going to play probably three to four different positions. He’s played second and third. He has the potential to play first, and he’s worked behind the plate some. Offensively, he gives you a competitive at-bat. He’s the guy conference opponents will have circled on the lineup card.” The Demons infield has a mix of experience and projectability. Seniors Matthew Alford and Spencer Goodwin were key components of an NSU defense that turned a school-record 71 double plays in 2016, and fifth-year senior Regan Kaufman had a pair of game-winning hits a season ago. Freshman Caleb Ricca enters with plenty of eyes upon him, earning preseason SLC Freshman of the Year nods from Perfect Game USA and D1Baseball. com. Junior catcher Kelsey Richard emerged from his redshirt season to hit an even .300. He is joined behind the plate by junior college transfer Hunter Uzzle. Richard is, in many ways, similar to junior outfielders Kwan Adkins, Miller Parker and Cade Jones. All four waited behind established veterans before earning playing time. “Our team is made of a lot of guys like that,” Barbier said. “Guys who worked themselves into good players. Guys who aren’t necessarily given a lot when they get here, but they work themselves into the players they are.” Adkins was named the No. 5 draft prospect in the Southland by D1Baseball, which also tabbed Fry as the league’s No. 18 prospect and Langdon at No. 20. Adkins’ tools include plus speed that should be an asset in center field. Senior Matt Valdez, who hit .273 with three home runs after transferring from Temple College, gives the Demons a solid left fielder while Barbier expects to see Parker fight for time in right field along with newcomers such as Tyler Smith and Lege, a two-way player. As is customary at Northwestern State, the Demons will face a tough non-conference schedule that includes 2016 College World Series participant Oklahoma State and super regionalist LSU. NSU also will take a five-game trip to face Big 12 foes Kansas and Kansas State in March. “Good teams expose flaws,” Barbier said. “You become better as a team when you know what your flaws are. We’ll have an idea before we get started, but when you open against a team like Cincinnati, every arm they run out there is going to be good. Every hitter’s going to be competitive in the box. You can get away with a few things when you play teams that don’t expose your flaws. “ We put our players in tough environments, in tough situations, so when it comes time for conference play, they’ve been there already. Its a good schedule that will challenge us.”

Great Tradition • Brighter Future


Bobby Barbier Head Coach Sixth Season at Northwestern State (First as head coach) Northwestern State, 2006 “One of the most respected and revered players in school history” is how Northwestern State Director of Athletics Greg Burke describes the 12th baseball coach in Demons history. Former Northwestern State Academic All-American and All-Southland Conference first baseman Bobby Barbier took over the Demons baseball program on June 21, 2016, following a two-year stint as NSU’s pitching coach. Barbier spent the 2015 and 2016 seasons helping the Demons craft two of the lowest ERAs in recent Northwetern State baseball history. The son of former Nicholls football coach Darren Barbier was an easy choice to succeed Lane Burroughs. “Bobby was born to be a coach and is the son of a coach,” Burke said. “He has the work ethic, interpersonal skills, baseball knowledge and, as a Demon baseball alumnus, a unique level of passion for the program, which will enable him to sustain and even enhance the team’s success level.” In addition to helping guide ace Adam Oller to a pair of All-American selections, Barbier’s tutelage led the Demons staff to a 3.01 ERA that ranked ninth nationally. Barbier directed Oller to a season in which he went 8-1, posted a 1.23 ERA (third-lowest nationally) and earned Southland Conference Pitcher of the Year honors, along with All-American nods from Louisville Slugger/Collegiate Baseball magazine and the American Baseball Coaches Association. In his first season, Barbier helped the NSU staff post a 3.55 ERA while Josh Oller became the program’s first 10-game winner in 11 years and Brandon Smith tied the program record for single-season saves (10). The overall ERA marked an improvement of more than one run from 2014 and was the lowest mark since 2002 (3.54). Forming successful pitchers stood in opposition to what Barbier did while wearing a Demon uniform. Barbier, the 2006 Southland Conference Scholar Athlete of the Year, played four seasons for the Demons, finishing his career ranked in the top 10 in eight offensive categories. He remains second in NSU history in hit by pitches. Upon his arrival in Natchitoches in the summer, Barbier began implementing and imparting his pitching system that will debut at Brown-Stroud Field this spring. After spending the 2007 season as a student assistant and the following two seasons as an assistant coach, Barbier joined former NSU head coach Mitch Gaspard’s staff at the University of Alabama, where he spent five seasons as the Crimson Tide’s third base coach. While at Alabama, Barbier coached five All-Southeastern Conference selections, including Academic All-American Taylor Dugas. Twelve Alabama players were selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft during Barbier’s Crimson Tide tenure. Barbier was part of a Crimson Tide coaching staff that led Alabama to four regional appearances from 2010-14, including the Atlanta Regional championship and a berth in the 2010 Clemson Super Regional. Barbier’s responsibilities at Alabama included coaching outfielders, assisting with catchers and infielders, directing camps and scouting and being heavily involved in recruiting. Barbier also was the staff’s academic coordinator. Barbier was a key contributor on the field as Alabama’s defense set a school record for fielding percentage in 2011. During his first stint as a Demons assistant, Barbier coached NSU infielders and hitters as well as acting as the team’s base running coordinator. Under his tutelage, NSU led the Southland Conference in stolen bases with 99. Barbier also coordinated travel, nsudemons.com // @NSUDemonsBsB

field mainteance and team academics as an NSU assistant. In his Demons playing career, Barbier epitomized the term student-athlete. In addition to being awarded the Southland’s top individual academic honor, Barbier was a 2004 Academic All-American and a part of the 2005 Southland Conference All-Academic Team. On the field, Barbier saw the majority of his playing time at first base, earning honorable mention all-conference accolades in 2004 and first-team All-Southland honors in 2005, while helping lead NSU to the 2005 Southland Conference title and a berth in the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional. Even though his playing career ended nearly a decade ago, the left-handed-hitting Barbier still ranks in the career top 10 in hit by pitches (2nd, 44), RBIs (4th, 130), games played (7th, 209), doubles (T-10th, 33), hits (10th, 181) and total bases (10th, 267). During his college career, Barbier laid the foundation for his future career, coaching American Legion ball for three years (2005-07) in Natchitoches and in his hometown of Lafayette, directing each of his teams to regional tournament berths. Barbier earned his bachelor’s degree in health and human performance from Northwestern State in December 2006. He is married to the former Kody Sprout and the couple has one daughter, Landry.

First-year head baseball coach Bobby Barbier (third from left) poses with former Northwestern State President Dr. Jim Henderson, Barbier’s wife, Kody, and Director of Athletics Greg Burke (far right) after being named the 12th baseball coach in school history in June.

“Bobby has many of the qualities you would like to see in a successful head coach. He has a clear plan and vision for the direction of where he wants to take the program, and he will deliver a continued message for the players to follow. During his time with me as both a player at Northwestern State and coach at Alabama, Bobby has always been a tremendous communicator. This will take effect in the way he molds his program with the community, administration, coaches, players and recruits. Being the son of a coach, Bobby displayed elite leadership skills at a very young age in his playing career for me. “I feel one of the top qualities a person can have is being ‘trustworthy.’ In my years of being a head coach Bobby was one of the most trustworthy players and coaches that I have had in my 27 years in the profession. I have no doubt that everyone in his program will develop an endless trust in his words and actions that will lead to success both on the diamond and in real life.” - Mitch Gaspard, associate head coach Kansas State, former Alabama and Northwestern State head coach NCAA Regionals: 1991 • 1994 • 2005

Chris Bertrand Assistant Coach First Season at Northwestern State Louisiana College, 2005 After spending four seasons as the head coach at Texas-Tyler, Louisiana native Chris Bertrand begins his first season as the Northwestern State pitching coach. In his four seasons at the helm of the Patriots, Bertrand guided UT Tyler to a 11969 record, three American Southwest Conference championships and three NCAA Division III Tournament appearances. “Chris has been a part of championship programs at every stop and will help us develop that championship culture here at Northwestern State,” head coach Bobby Barbier said. As the Patriots head coach, Bertrand mentored six all-region players in his final two seasons, including four in 2015, led by American Southwest Conference Newcomer of the Year Jaime Paxton. For their efforts, which included a 34-12 record and ASC regular-season and tournament championships, Bertrand and his staff were named the 2015 ASC Coaching Staff of the Year. Bertrand’s Patriots teams were familiar with success on and off the diamond. In his first season, Bertrand had 13 players named Academic All-ASC while 12 of his players earned All-ASC East Division honors, including East Division Player of the Year Kevan House. House was a first-team All-Region selection that year while teammates Chance Cotton (second team) and Isaac Tijerina (third team) also earned all-region honors. In all, Bertrand coached 41 all-conference and eight all-region selections at UT Tyler. In addition to coaching at UT Tyler, Bertrand was the athletic department’s director of external marketing where he enhanced the game day experience for all Patriots athletics and enhanced the exposure and aesthetics of the UT Tyler athletic facilities. Prior to his tenure at UT Tyler, Bertrand spent seven seasons as the pitching coach and associate head coach at LSU-Shreveport, helping the Pilots reach the NAIA World Series in back-to-back seasons (2011, 2012). His 2012 staff held the school records for shutouts (13) and ERA (3.10) until 2015. It still owns the school mark for strikeouts (476). Bertrand helped coach right-hander Jared Mortensen, a current Houston Astros farmhand, to first-team All-America honors in 2012 and tutored 10 first-team all-conference pitchers in his LSUS tenure. Bertrand also spent the summer of 2010 as the pitching coach for the Alexandria Aces of the Texas Collegiate League and three years as an associate scout for the Kansas City Royals. Bertrand is a member of the American Baseball Coaches’ Association, the Texas Baseball Coaches Association and the Louisiana Baseball Coaches Association. He has spoken at the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association Convention and the Southern Baseball Association Baseball Recruiting Seminar and has published the article, “General Pitching Mechanics,” for www.insidepitching.com. Bertrand played two seasons of baseball at Bossier Parish Community College before finishing his career at Louisiana College where he earned his bachelor’s degree in business administration. He earned his MBA from LSU-Shreveport in 2007. An Abbeville native, Bertrand is married to the former Lori Quigley of Shreveport and the couple has a daughter, Rayleigh (5), and a son, Callen (2).

NSU A COACHES’ PIPELINE TO SEC

Northwestern State baseball has enjoyed a tremendous run of success in the past three decades, molded by head coaches and assistants who have climbed the ladder to the highest levels of college baseball. Entering the 2017 season, four of the 14 head coaches in the Southeastern Conference, widely regarded as the toughest conference in college baseball, spent part of their careers on the Demons staff. Additionally, former Demons skipper Jim Wells helped build Alabama into a national power, leading the Crimson Tide to the 1996 College World Series championship game and was succeeded by Mitch Gaspard, who is now the associate head coach at Kansas State. The four current SEC coaches with Northwestern State ties have combined for four College World Series appearances at their current schools. Van Horn led Nebraska to back-to-back CWS appearances in 2001 and 2002 before taking the Arkansas job between the 2002 and 2003 seasons.

Well into its sixth decade of service, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achievement as it celebrates the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions and approximately 4,200 student-athletes. Having commemorated its 50th anniversary in 2013, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 13 member universities in three states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into the 21st Century. The successful transformation continues, as the Southland Conference welcomed four additional members in 2013: Abilene Christian University, Houston Baptist University, the University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio, and the University of New Orleans. In addition to its newest members, the Southland also consists of the University of Central Arkansas, Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. An original Southland member from 1963-73, Abilene Christian rejoined the league as one of the most decorated athletic programs in NCAA history, and the addition of Houston Baptist, UIW and New Orleans gives the Southland a regular competitive presence in the key metropolitan areas of Houston, San Antonio and New Orleans. Southland cities encompass approximately 14 million people, and six of its television markets rank among the top 100 in the U.S. All told, the membership of the Southland encompasses nearly 140,000 current students and an alumni base of nearly 800,000. Famous alums from current Southland Conference schools include former CBS news anchor Dan Rather (Sam Houston State), NBA executive Joe Dumars (McNeese State), ABC news anchor Robin Roberts (Southeastern Louisiana), Major League Baseball star Wade Miley (Southeastern Louisiana), NBA legend Scottie Pippen (Central Arkansas), and track and field Olympians Kenta Bell (Northwestern State), and Bobby Morrow and Billy Olson (both Abilene Christian). Other notable alums from current members include Grammy Award-winning musicians Frank Ocean (New Orleans), Don Henley

The eight men’s sports include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. The women compete for nine championships in basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball. The conference earns automatic qualification to NCAA championships in baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s cross country, football, men’s and women’s golf, women’s soccer, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, and volleyball. The Southland Bowling League, an affiliated Conference sport, originated in 2015, and four of its members filled out half of the eight-team bracket, with Stephen F.

BROWN-STROUD

Field

H O M E O F T H E N O R T H W E S T E R N S TAT E D E M O N S BUILT IN 1939... Brown-Stroud Field has been home to nine Southland Conference titles since 1991. Named after the first two baseball head coaches in school history - C.C. Stroud (1912-1930) and H. Alvin Brown (1949-1966), the ballpark has undergone significant changes in the past few of years with the addition of chairback seating, extended bleachers, an awning covering to protect the new seating, expanded dugouts, new landscaping, new field turf to the infield, and new for this season, a state-of-the-art sound system. Year in and year out, the Demons have faced some of the top teams in college baseball including College World Series teams LSU, Alabama, UL Lafayette, Nebraska and Missouri State. Other top-notch opponents stepping foot in Brown-Stroud Field have been Arkansas, Baylor, TCU, Missouri, Houston, Kansas State, Oral Roberts and Iowa State just to name a few.

Cracker Brown (second from right) is one of the stadium namesakes for Brown-Stroud Field. He is standing with three other namesakes (L-R) Walter P. Ledet (track complex), Harry Turpin (football stadium), H. Lee Prather (basketball coliseum)

DEMON BASEBALL... A HIT SINCE 1912 All-Americans. Conference championships. NCAA Regional appearances. All of the above have been part of the tradition that is Northwestern State baseball, a program that has made its share of headlines and memories in the last eight decades. NSU’s baseball tradition dates to 1912, when the first incarnation of the Louisiana Normal nine won 7 of its 11 games. With the exception of a 18-year gap from 1930-1948, the diamond Demons have written a legacy of success for the better part of a century. Individual accomplishments have blended into team success, creating a program that has enjoyed a run as one of the best in the Southland Conference in the last three decades. Numerous All-Americans have donned the Purple and White, beginning with Danny Turner in 1967 when the Demons competed at the NAIA level. Darryl Woods bridged the gap between the NCAA and NAIA eras, earning All-American honors after belting a school-record 19 home runs. Outfielder Terry Joseph was a two-time Academic All-American (1993, 1995) and ranks 9th in career batting average. Pitcher Reggie Gatewood was named a second-team All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association in 1994 after posting an 11-3 record and a 2.14 ERA. Shortstop Ryan Anholt earned third-team All-American honors from the American Baseball Coaches Association in 1998 when he batted .417 with 15 home runs and 71 RBIs in his junior season. Three Demons pitchers have earned Freshman All-American honors – Kyle Broughton and Dereck Cloeren in 2005 and Adam Oller in 2014. One of the most decorated runs in NSU baseball history began with its entrance into the Southland Conference, a league the Demons have called home for the past 27 seasons. In that time, the Demons have accumulated 49 first-team All-Southland Conference selections, seven Coach of the Year awards, four Pitcher of the Year honors, two Hitter of the Year awardees, eight Newcomer or Freshman of the Year winners and one Relief Pitcher of the Year. As a team, the Demons have captured 10 conference championships. Included in that grouping is a run of three straight SLC titles (1993-95) that has been accomplished by just two other Southland school. Perhaps more impressive than the sheer volume of championships is Northwestern State’s three NCAA Regional appearances during their Southland Conference membership. Each time the Demons have advanced to NCAA postseason play, they have done so as an at-large team, speaking to their ability to put together impressive regular seasons. In 1991, coach Jim Wells’ Demons earned the first NCAA Regional berth in school history and were placed in the NCAA South II Regional in Baton Rouge. The Demons fell to eventual national champion LSU, 11-2, and were edged by UL Lafayette, 11-7. Three years later, Wells’ Demons earned another at-large bid and were placed in the Midwest I Regional in Stillwater, Okla. After dropping the opener to perennial national power Cal State Fullerton, 11-3, NSU earned its first NCAA Regional victory, as Gatewood overpowered Illinois State, 8-2. NSU fell to Memphis, 14-9, ending its season with a school-record 45 victories. Wells’ success led him to become the head coach at Alabama, ushering in a flood of NSU coaches who took control of Southeastern Conference programs. Currently, former NSU coaches are head coaches at Arkansas (Dave Van Horn), Mississippi State (John Cohen), Ole Miss (Mike Bianco) and Texas A&M (Rob Childress). The Demons’ decade of dominance continued in 1996 with two wins at eventual national champion LSU. Two years later, NSU notched its sixth Southland title and fourth 40-win season of the 1990s. NSU closed the decade with a 38-21 campaign in 1999. Included in that season were wins against LSU and UCLA. The Demons closed the decade with a .658 winning percentage, which ranked 23rd in the nation. The 2000s brought continued success with a seventh Southland title in 2001. That season, NSU defeated LSU, 10-8, in front of a record crowd of 4,214 screaming Demons fans at Brown-Stroud Field. NSU repeated as Southland champions in 2002, winning 43 games in Gaspard’s first season. The Demons cracked the national top 25 for the first time in school history, reaching No. 23 in the Collegiate Baseball poll. NSU’s 2005 season was simply overpowering, as the Demons racked up 22 Southland wins and won the conference by five games, the largest margin in Southland history. NSU earned the third NCAA Regional trip in school history, traveling to Baton Rouge where it fell to nationally ranked Rice, 7-3, in its opening game before recovering to beat Marist, 4-3. NSU fell to state rival LSU, 12-4, in its next regional game. In 2010, NSU tied its school record for conference wins with 22 and added victories against nationally ranked Southern Mississippi and Texas A&M. Four Demons earned first-team All-Southland Conference honors and the conference named Chad Sheppard its Relief Pitcher of the Year. The next three seasons were uncharacteristically trying for the Demons, who nevertheless had three players drafted in 2012, including second-round pick Mason Melotakis (Minnesota). The hiring of Lane Burroughs, a Mississippi State assistant under Cohen, signaled a return to form for the Demons program. After going 16-40 in his first season, Burroughs engineered a remarkable turnaround, winning 17 more games in his second season. NSU also authored the largest single-season turnaround in Southland Conference history, increasing its conference win total from 5 to 19. The follow-up season included another improvement as NSU bumped its winning percentage from .559 to .574 and saw outfielder Cort Brinson earn Southland Conference Hitter and Student-Athlete of the Year honors. In what turned out to be Burroughs’ final season, NSU added to its All-American legacy in 2016 as righthander Adam Oller was tabbed by both the American Baseball Coaches Association and Collegiate Baseball magazine. Oller was one of three Demons drafted (Nick Heath, Daniel Garner) from an NSU team that won its final 10 Southland Conference games of the year, setting a school record for consecutive conference victories, one that remains active entering the 2017 season.

Dr. Chris Maggio

Acting Northwestern State President

Chris Maggio is a competitor for all seasons. Northwestern State’s acting president was an all-sports athlete in high school, a college distance runner at NSU, and a high school football, basketball and track coach. He became a college coach in track and field for the Demons and Lady Demons. He even spent a few years as a high school basketball referee. Today, you can find him making early-morning runs, and you might see him on the tennis courts. He’s made memorable putts at Demon Hills Golf Course. His zeal for competition makes him a dynamic recruiter and fund raiser for NSU, and his ability to mentor staff U N I V E R S I T Y A D M I N I S T R AT I O N members and students comActing President: bined with his warmth and . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Dr. Darlene Williams Dr. Maggio was appointed as acting president of Northwestern State effective January 1. He succeeded Dr. Jim Henderson, whose dynamic tenure spearheaded significant growth and achievement in two years as president. Henderson was named to run the University of Louisiana System, which includes Northwestern and eight other state universities. The appointment of Maggio, a lifelong resident of Natchitoches and long-time faculty and staff member at Northwestern State, will run through the spring semester and into June as the Board of Supervisors for the University of Louisiana System conducts a national search for Northwestern State’s president. Maggio is a candidate for the post. Maggio was named vice president for the student experience at Northwestern State in September after serving as interim vice president for just over a year. He will maintain his role as vice president for the student experience while serving as acting president. When the NSU Student Services building opened a couple of years ago, designers had a lovely office location for Maggio on the second floor. He asked instead for the room just inside the front door to the building, not connected to any administrative wing, but envisioned as a conference space. His reasoning: Maggio wanted to see everybody who walked in the door, and providing the ability to immediately engage them or at least be easily accessible for anyone who needed help. As vice president, Maggio has led the Dean of Students and the Offices of Admissions, Recruiting, Financial Aid, Student Activities and Organizations, First Year Experience and Leadership Development, Judicial Services, Counseling and Career Services, Student Life, the Student Activities Board, Student Government Association, Student Support Services, and Greek Life. Northwestern State has recorded enrollment increases for the past two years. Enrollment for the Fall 2016 semester was 9,819 students, a seven percent increase over the previous fall, the highest growth rate of any University of Louisiana System institution. Maggio served as assistant vice president of external affairs for university advancement from 2013 until 2015, when he was promoted by Dr. Henderson. He has nsudemons.com // @NSUDemonsBsB

been a staff member at Northwestern State since 1988, when he joined the track and field coaching staff. After several years as director of admissions and recruiting during record-setting enrollment for NSU, Maggio was selected as director of alumni affairs in 1999, director of alumni and development in 2003, executive director of the NSU Foundation in 2005 and Dean of Students and assistant provost for student success in 2007. During his career at NSU, Maggio also served as director of enrollment services. Under Maggio’s leadership, the NSU Foundation completed its first capital campaign in Northwestern’s history, exceeding a campaign goal of $18.84 million and raising $31 million to support the university. He has also been a faculty member in the Department of Health and Human Performance for more than 20 years as an instructor, assistant professor and associate professor. Maggio came on board the NSU staff in 1988 as assistant track and field coach, then became head women’s coach a year later. After a very successful five years in that capacity, in 1994 Maggio moved into administration as the fundraiser for NSU Athletics before quickly being snapped up to become the university’s director of admissions and recruiting. Maggio is a 1985 summa cum laude graduate of Northwestern State. He won Gulf Star Conference All-Academic honors in track and field. As a senior, he was elected Mr. NSU by his fellow students. Maggio earned his master’s of education at NSU. He received a doctorate in developmental education from Grambling State University. His parents helped run a family business in Natchitoches. His father, Buddy, was honored as a “Natchitoches Treasure” this past fall by the City of Natchitoches. As a young boy, Maggio became playmates with future Basketball Hall of Fame member Joe Dumars, whose home was near one of the Maggio’s stores. Dr. Maggio’s wife, Jennifer, is on the NSU staff as Coordinator of Adult Education Initiatives. They have three children, Melanie, Scott, and Emily. Emily is a high school student at St. Mary’s Catholic School of Natchitoches, while her older siblings attend other colleges.

Jerry Pierce

Vice President • External Affairs Only a handful of people have served Northwestern State as long as alumnus Jerry Pierce has, and nobody has done so in a more understated manner. In his 51st year on the university’s staff, Pierce’s impact on NSU and the city of Natchitoches is indelible. He’s never wanted or gotten top billing, but consistently, he gets results to benefit the university. He is in his 26th year as vice president of external affairs at Northwestern. A significant aspect of his job is oversight of intercollegiate athletics. Pierce works closely with athletic director Greg Burke and all NSU coaches and staff members to keep Northwestern athletics competing at a championship level week after week, month after month and year after year. Pierce, an avid tennis player, has been a member of USTA teams that have won more than a dozen state championships, five regional titles and one national championship. Well before moving into the executive position, Pierce had already served his alma mater, adopted hometown and state with distinction. In his role as vice president, he overNSU Athletic Council sees university operations in athletics, alumni and development, public and media relations and assists President Dr. Jim Henderson in governJody Biscoe (Chair) mental affairs activities. Many of those duties were his since the 1970s as Hall Adams Kwan Adkins (Student-Athlete) he worked under five previous presidents as Northwestern advanced from LaCarsha Babers NAIA to NCAA College Division to NCAA Division I athletic status in 1977. Brittany Blackwell A 1961 graduate of Northwestern, Pierce served as trainer/manager Angela Bolton for the Demon football team during his college years, working closely with Sid Hall legendary coach Jack Clayton. After earning his journalism degree, Pierce Natalie Jaeger (Student-Athlete) went to work for the New Orleans Times Picayune, serving as a reporter Aaron Johnson and editor. He was named executive sports editor at the age of 24. Lori LeBlanc In 1965, he chose to raise his two sons in Natchitoches and returned Chris Lyles to NSU as sports information director. He was promoted to news bureau diDr. Charles Pellegrin rector two years later and assumed additional responsibilities in athletics, Christie Price alumni affairs and other areas through the years. He founded, in 1972, the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame facility in Ex-Officio Members Greg Burke Prather Coliseum on the NSU campus, providing a home for an entity creatDustin Eubanks ed in 1958. He established annual induction activities that remain in place Roxanne Freeman nearly four decades later, and served as director of the Hall for 19 years Betsy Nohavitza until his promotion to vice president in April 1990 forced him to step aside Dr. Patrice Moulton from the volunteer post. Dr. Vicki Parrish He helped guide Northwestern into three athletic conferences (Trans Jerry Pierce America, 1979; Gulf Star, 1983; Southland, 1987) and NCAA Division I status in 1977. He is a past president of the Southland and has served the conference through other offices and committee positions. In 1994, he was named one of Louisiana’s 20 most influential sports figures by the Times-Picayune. Also on the list were New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson, LSU athletic director Joe Dean and basketball coach Dale Brown, and Grambling football coaching legend Eddie Robinson. His salesmanship and managerial skills were instrumental in convincing Tri-Star Productions to film the 1989 smash hit movie “Steel Magnolias,” with an all-star cast including Julia Roberts, Sally Field and Dylan McDermott in Natchitoches and on the NSU campus. The movie’s impact on tourism in Natchitoches continues to resonate nearly three decades later. Pierce is regarded as one of the most effective legislative liaisons for Louisiana’s higher education system. He is also a sought-after dinner speaker and master of ceremonies who has spoken at hundreds of events since 1965. In addition to his administrative responsibilities, Pierce is a tenured member of the Journalism Department faculty. He is the author of one book and editor of two others and has written thousands of editorials, columns, features and other articles for newspapers and magazines. Pierce and his wife Regina, a recently retired teacher, live on Cane River Lake in Natchitoches. He has two sons, Randy and Rick, both NSU graduates; and three grandchildren, twins Evan and Amanda, 27, and Miranda, 16, along with two adult stepchildren, Nicholas and Natalie. He’s a doting “Poppy” to Natalie’s preschool daughters. NCAA Regionals: 1991 • 1994 • 2005

Greg Burke

Director of Athletics The Burke File

AGE: 60 (Born Oct. 22, 1956) • HOMETOWN: Alliance, Ohio • HIGH SCHOOL: Marlington ’74 • COLLEGE: Mt. Union ’78 (cum laude) POSTGRADUATE: Kent State ’86 • BEFORE HE WAS A.D.: Sports writer, Alliance (Ohio) Review, 1972-78; director of news and sports information, Hiram (Ohio) College, 1978-85; administrative intern, NSU athletics, 1985-86; director, NSU Athletic Association, 1986-92; director of athletic development, University of Akron, 1992-96; director of athletics, Northwestern State, 1996-present. BIG FAN OF: Cleveland Browns, Indians and Cavaliers • INTERESTS: Working out, watching ESPN and VH1 Classic, family outings.

In his 21st year as director of athletics at Northwestern State, Greg Burke is highly regarded due to the work he’s done in his adopted hometown. Burke, a native Ohioan still beaming about the Cleveland Cavaliers’ NBA title, has been the Demons’ athletics director since Aug. 29, 1996, when his first day included speaking at the annual NSU/Independence Bowl Kickoff Luncheon. Burke is the longest serving AD at any Louisiana or Southland Conference institution. He has steered NSU athletics to many of its greatest accomplishments while overseeing a program that has fielded championship caliber teams in a dozen of the school’s 14 NCAA Division I sports. Highlights in Burke’s two decades as athletic director include 41 Southland Conference regular-season or tournament championships, 67 All-America and Academic All-America student athletes, and three U.S. Olympic competitors. Twenty-five NSU teams have taken part in NCAA or other postseason competition. All of the school’s athletic facilities have undergone over $7 million in improvements in the past few years. Burke spearheaded a $2 million series of sponsorships for new scoreboards installed for 2008-09 at all NSU athletic venues; the $700,000 Second Century Circle fencing project for athletic venues; a $500,000 softball grandstand project; and a $600,000 upgrade of chairback seating at Turpin Stadium for the 2016 football season. Fundraising initiatives reached new levels in 2015-16. Formalizing the endowed giving program, branded as “Perpetually Purple,” generated an influx of over $100,000, while overall revenue generated by donations and sponsorships cracked $2 million. Competitively, milestones continue. One of the biggest under Burke: NSU in 2004-05 became the first (and remains the only) Southland Conference member in the league’s five decades of history to sweep football, men’s basketball and baseball championships in the same athletic year. It’s been done only once in Southeastern Conference history, by Alabama in 1933-34, and only four times in Big Ten Conference history, the last time by Michigan State in 1979-80. Those accomplishments have come with one of the more modest athletic budgets in the state and conference. Burke’s management skill and fundraising ability have been pivotal. Burke has a remarkable ability to hire dynamic head coaches. Anchors of the department are current head coaches Mike McConathy, Louisiana’s all-time career basketball wins leader; softball coach Donald Pickett, and track and field coach Mike Heimerman, a trio with nearly 50 combined years on staff at NSU. Two former student-athletes in Burke’s tenure are now NSU head coaches: third-year tennis coach Olga Bazhanova, and first-year baseball coach Bobby Barbier. Numerous Burke hires had great success at Northwestern State that propelled them to national prominence in subsequent positions. Over 100 former NSU student-athletes, coaches and support staff members, most of them here with Burke as AD or assistant AD (1986-92), are working in college athletics at some level. Former Demons are head coaches in the SEC, Big XII, ACC, Mountain West Conference, Conference USA, SWAC, and Southland Conference. Five others hold Associate AD positions in the SEC, PAC 12, and American Athletic conferences. From his first day on the job, Burke has stressed the importance of having a balanced athletic program. Tremendous competitive strides have been made in women’s athletics under his guidance. Just in the past three years, Lady Demon basketball (2014, 2015), softball (2013, 2014), tennis (2013, 2015) and volleyball (2015) have reached NCAA Tournaments. Burke established a high standard for NSU Athletics in academic achievement and community service. The academic accomplishments are reflected annually in the NCAA’s APR and GSR studies. Community service by NSU student-athletes, coaches and staff more than doubled to over 5,000 hours in 2009-10 and has remained at that level. The Southland Conference created the “Southland Strong” Community Service award to recognize the member institution whose student-athletes compile the most service hours each year. NSU won the inaugural prize in 2014-15 and was second in 2015-16. Burke spearheaded the adoption of the slogan “Great Tradition, Brighter Future” for NSU Athletics, and the creation of NSU Athletics “Cornerstones” for student-athletes: “Academic Achievement, Personal Responsibility, Competitive Success … Every Minute, Every Hour, Every Day!” During Feb. 2013, he was presented the “Outstanding Contributions to Amateur Football Award” by the North Louisiana chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame. Six years ago, he was included among 29 winners of the Under Amour AD of the Year Award presented by the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA). Burke was the 2010-11 president of the Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association. He serves on the year-old NCAA Committee on Academics, a 20-person group replacing the Committee on Academic Performance, which included Burke.
