Northwestern State Demon Football

Celebrating NSU’s First Southland Conference Championship 25th Anniversary of the “Road Warriors” It’s been 25 falls since the “Road Warriors” of Northwestern State earned a place among the best Demon football teams of all-time, despite having only two first-team All-Southland Conference selections.

Setting school single-season records for points, touchdowns and rushing yards, Northwestern was led by 17 players who received All-Southland recognition. The Demons finished with a No. 8 national ranking. All-Southland Conference Team First Team – WR Floyd Turner, LB Leonard Parker Second Team – QB Scott Stoker, RB Paul Frazier, TE Orlan Lockhart, C Jeff Steers, G John King, T Robbie Martin, DE Henry Sibley, CB Kevin Lewis, S Dennis Smith Honorable Mention – FB Mike O’Neal, WR Al Edwards, DT Mitch Rowe, DE Sidney Thissel, LB Freddie Wallace, CB Randy Hilliard Coach of the Year – Sam Goodwin Sports Network All-America Team CB Kevin Lewis (Second Team), WR Floyd Turner (Honorable Mention)

That oddity illustrates the strength of the 1988 Demons: their togetherness and tenacity. There were many more overachievers than awesome athletes on coach Sam Goodwin’s squad that stormed unbeaten through the Southland Conference, posting an overall 10-3 record and making NSU’s first ever Division I football playoff appearance. The “Road Warriors” earned that tag with a string of five straight Southland or playoff wins away from Turpin Stadium. Two of those victories came over teams, North Texas and Stephen F. Austin, which had been ranked No. 1 nationally. The season-ending 20-17 NSU triumph at SFA came in a showdown for the conference crown. No other Southland coach picked the Demons to beat top-ranked “Stephen F. Awesome” but NSU rolled up 437 yards against the nation’s No. 1 defense. The Demons won their first-ever playoff game in wintry weather, 22-13 at Boise State. A return trip to Big Sky country ended with a dramatic 38-30 loss at Idaho, capping a season that netted NSU’s most wins in 49 seasons.

HC Sam Goodwin speaks to the team after win over SFA.

Season Outlook

New Staff and New Pieces, but the Demons Have Plenty of Experience in 2013

There’s plenty of experience, including with the new coaching staff, on hand for the 2013 Northwestern State football team, but for the Demons to break back into the winning ranks, they must replace some productive players with a blend of veterans stepping up and newcomers stepping in. New coach Jay Thomas is not new to the Southland, having guided Nicholls to national rankings, Top 25 wins, a Southland title and the FCS playoffs in six hurricane-challenged seasons in charge of the Colonels. His coaching staff is filled with coaches who have worked together before with success. The Demons have 58 letterwinners and 16 starters, evenly split between offense and defense, back from a 4-7 team that was close to breaking a three-year losing skid in 2012. But gone is two-thirds of the offensive production, most by quarterback Brad Henderson; four of the top six tacklers, including two-time AllAmerica linebacker Derek Rose; and all of the specialists. Thomas Jay Thomas is in his first year as the Demons’ head coach after spending two believes his best assets are up front on both lines. seasons as NSU’s defensive line coach (2010-11). Northwestern State’s new offense has its conceptual roots in the rapid-fire, pass-happy scheme shaped by Cal offensive coordinator Tony Franklin, but Demons’ OC Robby Brown, who steered Valdosta State’s offense in a Division II national championship season in 2012, will aim for a run-pass balance using an ensemble group of ball-handlers. “You want a defensive coordinator to have to defend 7, 8, 9 guys who can potentially touch the ball and scare you,” said Thomas. “As an old DC, I know that makes it tough. It puts a lot of stress to have to decide which guys you really must defend. Coach Brown is a product of Tony Franklin and his system, but has his own spin. Ours will be more a 50-50 offense with the up-tempo approach.” Veteran linemen Blayne Cole and Warren Jones anchor the offense. To their outside is a formidable group of tight ends – Chris Dever, Tucker Nims and Corey Simmons – and a receiving corps topped by explosive senior Louis Hollier (team-best 28 receptions, 384 yards last year). Dynamic Daniel Taylor led NSU in touchdowns (5) and rushing (304 yards, 6.8 per carry) Replacing Henderson at quarterback is the biggest question to answer in preseason camp. Redshirt freshman Daniel Hazlewood had a fine spring practice. Junior college transfer Zach Adkins and freshmen J.D. Almond and T.J. Fleeton will contend to run the show. Junior Don Canyon is on the shelf until midseason after a shoulder injury. The Demons’ defensive scheme under coordinator Chris Boone is based in a 3-4 look but will also blend in four-man fronts in a system that emulates those used by the New England Patriots and Alabama Crimson Tide. The pivotal figure should be senior tackle Lesley Deamer, who had 42 stops last year fighting constant double-teams after making All-Southland as a sophomore. Linebacker Pat Black (88 tackles, 3 fumble recoveries) and safety Bert White (59 stops) are the top returning tacklers.Young but experienced corners Rico Albert, Imoan Claiborne and Fred Blayne Cole (above) will join Warren Jones to help anchor the offensive line, Thomas could be problematic for opposing passers. a group that Coach Thomas feels is very The one game-tested special teams figure is sophomore Ed improved. Eagan, who took a kickoff back 82 yards for a TD against Sam Houston last fall and averaged 10.4 on punt runbacks. A cornerback, Eagan emerged as a two-way player in spring ball, making a 49-yard touchdown snag at receiver in the 24th Annual Joe Delaney Bowl. Cutting down penalties and turnovers are primary goals for Thomas’s first Demon team, and 15 spring practices provided a very positive trend. “We’re really pleased first and foremost with eliminating the mistakes. We really improved in that area from the first scrimmage to the spring game,” he said. “Our guys responded to what we taught. Now we need to blend the veterans with a good group of new guys and get better day after day.”

Northwestern State Demon Football COACH THOMAS’ THOUGHTS ON THE DEMONS: Offense “Offensive line was probably the most improved group on offense. “Receivers got better at running routes and catching the ball. We will be counting on some contributions by newcomers at this position. “Our running backs are different guys. They all bring something different to the table and that’s what’s fun about it. “We feel very, very confident about the tight end position, which may be one of the strongest points of the offense. It’s a very talented group of guys. We have guys who can block, guys who can run routes, guys who can extend off the line of scrimmage. When you’re creating different personnel Pat Black (7), Bert White (10), and Lesley Deamer (93) groups, the defensive coorreturn as Northwestern State’s top defensive players. dinator can’t get in on where Deamer will anchor the defensive line, Black the linethe guy’s going to be – on backers, and White the defensive backs. the line of scrimmage, in the backfield, or flexed as part of the receiving group. “The biggest question we have is quarterback. We have some talented guys. Don Canyon got injured very early in spring, had shown some strong promise, but we may not get him back until midseason. Daniel Hazlewood stepped up and really improved throughout spring, and finished with a very good Delaney Bowl. He needs seasoning. Particularly at that position, it most often takes time. Grant Chiasson is more an option guy but showed he can run things. Certainly we’re looking for immediate impact from our signees, starting with Zack Adkins who comes from a system a lot like ours. He was very exciting to watch on tape. T.J. Fleeton is a very, very talented freshman. He was one of those “stumble into” and it was a good “stumble into.” J.D. Almond was our first commitment, he has purple blood coursing through him, and he’s an exciting prospect. “Coach Brown is a product of Tony Franklin and his system, but has his own spin. Ours will be more a 50-50 offense with the up-tempo approach. “You want a defensive coordinator to have to defend 7, 8, 9 guys who can potentially touch the ball and scare you. As an old DC, I know that makes it tough. It puts a lot of stress to have to decide which guys you really must defend. “We’ve got some questions in a couple of areas we need answered on offense and will get answers in our first two weeks of camp.” Defense “Our scheme is similar in a lot of regards to what was played here in the past four years. Coach Boone and I have worked together a lot in the past, and he’s been away from me for nine years and has tweaked the scheme to fit today’s game, with his own recipe. I’m still involved with the big boys inside up front, my boys, and that will be fun. It’s going to be a multiple defense, based in 3-4 personnel, but we’re sliding SLC Champions: 1988 • 1997 • 1998 • 2004

Robby Brown is in his first year at NSU as the offensive coordinator. He runs a rapid-fire, pass-happy scheme that earned a nation title at Valdosta St.

in and out of a three-down, four-down look. It’s more of an NFL-style defense, trying to complement our players on the field and get as much speed on the field as possible. We’re playing almost with a dime package. The Sam linebacker is what we call Slash, kind of a superman, in the box, out of the box, in coverage, blitzing, man cover guy, but he’s still got to be able to play a block by the tight end. Our weakside safety is like another cornerback. We’re playing with two safeties, but it’s almost like the safety’s inverted all the time. It’s a 3-4 concept very similar to what the New England Patriots are doing, to what Alabama is doing, and combining a lot of what we’ve done here in the past with the four-down concept, taking Ed Eagan is a sophomore that looks to advantage of the players we have here and have an impact on the Demons in 2013. He showed in spring practice that he our athleticism. could be a two-way player. “Our guys really got better this spring at fundamentals and learning what we needed to teach. “The defensive line is probably the strongest point of the defense. On both sides, at the line of scrimmage, we have a lot of older guys who are really going to benefit us. We have a mix at linebacker, and in the secondary, we’re pretty young overall but not inexperienced. “We like to play a lot of guys, but I believe the focal point up front will be Lesley Deamer. We’ll move him around at defensive tackle, at nose, at defensive end. We’ll get him into some one-on-one matchups to take advantage of his talents and showcase him, get him out of some of those double-team combination type blocks. It will benefit us doing that. “On the back end, the cornerback position was really, really impressive. It’s not easy being out on that island. We try to protect them as much as we can, but the way the game is played these days, we have to get up there and play press defense, be very aggressive. Man coverage is a big part of our scheme. We will be fundamentally sound in zone concepts and mix those in as well. “At safety, Bert White will head up that group. Ryan Sorrell has been moved back from corner, where he played a ton, and he’ll end up locking down a weakside receiver anyway in our scheme. “We have a long ways to go to be a dominant defense. Our team speed is very good. We will come out and chase you, we will gang tackle, and we like to have fun. We want to be sure we have them in the right positions, and we will be a thorn in the side of an offense. Special Teams “We have some very capable guys back who can get the job done, but they’re just not seasoned. We have some new players who could have immediate impact. We’ll have to determine that pretty quickly. Ed Eagan proved last year he’s an explosive player in the return game, and he’s a two-way guy on our team. We moved him to receiver late in spring and he will play on both sides, and he will be the guy to beat out for the featured return spot on punts and kickoffs.” The new defensive coordinator for the Demons is Chris Boone who comes to NSU from Jacksonville State.

Head Coach Jay Thomas

JAY THOMAS HEAD COACH

THIRD SEASON AT NORTHWESTERN STATE, FIRST AS HEAD COACH SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI ‘88 Jay Thomas, a finalist for national coach of the year honors in a 2005 playoff season, begins his first season as head football coach at Northwestern State. Thomas, 52, had been defensive coordinator and assistant head coach for the past year at Division II Missouri Southern in Joplin, following two seasons as the Demons’ defensive line coach and assistant head coach in 2010 and 2011. The Jay Thomas File Previously, Thomas spent 14 seasons at Nicholls State, the last six Years at NSU: Third (1st as HC, 1st since 2011) (2004-2009) as head coach.

His Colonels finished the 2005 season ranked 17th in the Sports Network’s FCS Top 25, and reached a school-record high ranking of 13th in 2007. During his tenure as head coach, Thomas instituted academic emphasis which resulted in the Nicholls team’s Academic Progress Rate improving from 746 to 930 over his five seasons. Thomas guided Nicholls to a pair of winning seasons and a .500 record in a third season in a program that had only one season of .500 or better in the previous seven campaigns. His three .500 or better seasons gave Nicholls three of only four at that level in the past 13 years. NSU athletic director Greg Burke said first-hand experience working with Thomas at Northwestern and watching his teams at Nicholls proved pivotal. “This certainly has been a lengthier search process than most, myself included, had anticipated and in the end, there is a high confidence level in handing the reigns of Demon football to somebody in Jay Thomas with whom I have an extremely high comfort level. Through and through, he is a football coach who has deep roots in Louisiana,” said Burke. “I really enjoyed building a relationship with Jay when he was an NSU assistant coach and look forward to now working side-byside with him as our head coach. “First and foremost, Jay will sustain Thomas with his wife Jan and daughters Hannah and Haley the very positive pieces that are in place

He brings a ton of knowledge, energy, and experience at the FCS level with a lot of success at two really competitive Ohio Valley Conference programs. He is a football guy through and through. He turns over every rock. He’s a good teacher. Our kids will enjoy playing for him. “His experience in successfully recruiting Mississippi and Alabama, and south Louisiana, makes him a really great hire in that regard. I know, because when I was the head man at Nicholls, he beat me on a couple of guys from Louisiana when he was at UT-Martin,” said Thomas. Playing Experience: Boone played at Southern Mississippi in 1995. At Jones County (Miss.) JC, he was a two-year starter and voted team captain in 1991-92.

In an era of considerable change in intercollegiate athletics, the Southland Conference continues to be a model of innovation, stability and consistent achievement as it celebrates a half-century of the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions. Commemorating its 50th anniversary in 2013, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 14 member universities in four 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 its five decades of existence. The successful transformation continues, as the Southland Conference welcomed the addition of Oral Roberts University in 2012-13, marking the league’s first entry into the state of Oklahoma. Also, on July 1, 2013, the Southland welcomed four additional members: 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 Conference 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, Abilene Christian rejoins the league as one of the most decorated athletic programs in NCAA history, and the addition of Houston Baptist, Incarnate Word 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 14.5 million people, and seven 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 and Rodney Crowell (both Stephen F. Austin), and Ronnie Dunn (Abilene Christian), television personality and actress Ellen DeGeneres (New Orleans), current NFL standouts Lardarius Webb (Nicholls State), Terrence McGee (Northwestern State), and Daniel Manning (Abilene Christian), professional golfers Shawn Stefani and Chris Stroud (both Lamar) and Colin Montgomerie (HBU), award-winning filmmaker Richard Linklater (Sam Houston State), American Idol winner Kris Allen (Central Arkansas), NFL Hall of Famer Jackie Harris (Northwestern State), former NFL standouts Bobby Hebert (Northwestern State), Gary Barbaro (Nicholls State), Wilbert Montgomery (Abilene Christian) and Gary Reasons (Northwestern State), former MLB stars Darryl Hamilton (Nicholls State) and Kevin Millar (Lamar), NCAA football coach Charlie Strong (Central Arkansas), TV personality Kathie Lee Gifford (Oral Roberts), actors John Larroquette (New Orleans), and Ricardo Chavira and Jesse Borrego (both UIW) and NFL coaching legend O.A. “Bum” Phillips (Lamar and Stephen F. Austin). Continuing its tradition of innovation, the league launched the Southland Conference Television Network in the fall of 2008 and has broadcast more than 160 events. The network has expanded its reach to roughly 13 million households throughout Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma in recent years, and has also gained national viewership through ESPN3 and Fox College Sports. In its first five years, the network has received recognition for its work, earning numerous College Sports Media and Telly Awards. The Southland Conference, in conjunction with the city of Frisco, Texas, and Hunt Sports Group, also serves as the host to the NCAA Division I Football Championship Game in Frisco, which has been home to the conference headquarters since 2006. The game is played at Frisco’s FC Dallas Stadium, and after a successful three-year run, the partnership was rewarded with a three-year renewal to serve as the national championship host site through the 2015 season.

Art Kaufman did a lot of good for the Northwestern State football program early in his coaching career, but Texas Tech’s new defensive coordinator did the Demons no favors in the Red Raiders’ 44-6 victory in the season opener for both football teams. Kaufman, a Demons’ assistant from 1983-87, inherited a Red Raiders defense that ranked last nationally against the run and was generally acknowledged as the key culprit in the first non bowl season for Texas Tech in 18 years. Saturday night, NSU managed only six first downs and 84 net offensive yards on 49 plays. While the Red Raiders were dominant statistically, they piled on 17 fourthquarter points to change the complexion of the contest. Quarterback Brad Henderson echoed his coach’s feelings. After Cortez Paige’s 49-yard interception return ended Texas Tech’s first drive and set NSU up at the Red Raiders’ 36, NSU had to settle for a 38-yard field goal, and setting a tone, it went awry, the first time in 13 attempts John Shaughnessy didn’t convert a threepointer. Later, a dropped pass inside the Texas Tech 10 and a sack that prevented Henderson from looping a pass to a wide open receiver inside the 5 proved costly. Shaughnessy rebounded with field goals of 47 and 46 yards early in the second and fourth quarters. Texas Tech posted 500 total yards, 321 passing including 122 in the fourth quarter by backup Michael Brewer with the Red Raiders expanding a 27-6 lead. The compelling stat, however, was third down conversions. Tech was 10 of 11 in the first half while moving ahead 27-3, and held NSU to a 1 of 6 rate. Northwestern was flagged eight times for 88 yards, with some costly infractions fueling first-half drives by Texas Tech. The Raiders’ first five scoring drives involved 16, 10, 12, 11 and 11 plays in the first three quarters.

After riding the backs of the defense, which scored on a pair of interception returns, the Northwestern State offense came through just in time to avoid an upset as the first carry of true freshman Daniel Taylor’s career was a 25-yard touchdown making the difference in a 31-24 win over Division II Arkansas-Monticello. Taylor’s burst over the left side with 5:41 remaining capped a 7-play, 80-yard drive from a struggling offensive unit after UAM kicker Reagan Wise was wide left on a go-ahead 22-yard field goal. Following the Taylor TD, NSU forced a punt with 3:47 to go and held the ball for the game’s last eight plays. Northwestern won its 18th straight over a Division II opponent, dating back to 1994, although the last three wins have all been decided in the closing minutes by a total of 11 points in the past three years. The Demons and Boll Weevils both had their season records go to 1-1. A 42-yard Brad Henderson to Phil Harvey pass play on third-and-10 from the Demons’ 20 was the pivotal one in the game-winning march by NSU. The Demons rallied to win after UAM scored early in the third quarter to go ahead 24-17. Northwestern got its second defensive touchdown of the night on an interception return to knot the game at 24-all when Cortez Paige dashed 52 yards on a pick-six midway through the third quarter. Just over a minute into the game, the Demons jumped up 7-0 on a 28-yard interception return by Imoan Claiborne, and five minutes later NSU was up 14-0 after needing to cover only 35 yards on its first series of the night. Hints of a blowout faded soon after. UAM took its only lead on its first series of the second half after blocking a 48yard field goal try and returning it to the NSU 30. The Boll Weevils got a 22-yard run up the gut by Damon Wicker on fourth-and-2 to go up 24-17.

Nevada 45

Huge offensive night not enough against Wolf Pack Northwestern State’s offense roared to life with its biggest yardage output since 2002, but Nevada’s hit another level as the Wolf Pack got a career-best 247 yards rushing from Stefon Jefferson and held off the Demons 45-34. A fumble lost at the goalline on NSU’s opening drive of the second half, with a 48-yard Jefferson touchdown bolt on the next snap, followed a 45-second touchdown drive covering 75 yards in the last minute of the first half to give Nevada the upper hand. But the Wolf Pack (2-1) never put NSU (1-2) away. The pivotal play came at the Nevada goalline, with Northwestern having moved 75 yards with the second half kickoff and second-and-goal at the 1. Demon quarterback Brad Henderson dove into the line, and after a pileup of a few seconds, suddenly Wolf Pack defender Duke Williams ran the ball out of the end zone and down the NSU sideline just past midfield. Demons coach Bradley Dale Peveto saw his offense erupt for 585 total yards as Henderson ran for a career-best 102 on eight plays, mostly quarterback draws. Henderson broke the school single-game pass attempts mark set by Don Guidry in 1966 with 53 tries, going 28-of 53 without an interception for 357 yards and two touchdowns, 68 yards to Phillip Harvey and 2 yards to Corey Simmons. Nevada’s biggest advantage was 38-20 with 12:07 left, but the Demons answered 2:43 later on a spectacular 40-yard reverse-the-field scamper by true freshman tailback Daniel Taylor. Harvey’s long bomb got NSU within 11 with 5:35 to go and the Demon defense halted a string of five long touchdown drives by Nevada with 3:31 left, but the visitors’ last series stalled at midfield with 1:41 left. The Demons took the ball to open the second half bolstered by their offensive eruption but stung by Nevada’s last-minute touchdown drive to post a 17-13 halftime edge. NSU had 265 yards, 198 passing in the first two quarters after limping in with a 177.5 game average of offensive output. It was defense that got Northwestern going. For the third straight game, nickleback Cortez Paige picked off a pass, this time on the game’s fourth play, running it back 11 yards to the Nevada 29. NSU stalled inside the 5 and John Shaugnessy chipped a 22-yard field goal for a lead less than five minutes into play.

Demons pull away to record victory over Delta Devils

Phillip Harvey’s 97-yard kickoff return put Northwestern State on top to stay as the Demons rode a stout defense and three Brad Henderson touchdown passes to a 45-14 nonconference football victory over Mississippi Valley State. Northwestern (2-2) wrapped up its non-conference schedule with the win over the Delta Devils (1-3) in the first-ever contest between the schools. It was the eighth win in nine tries this century over a Southwestern Athletic Conference opponent for NSU. Mississippi Valley managed only 241 yards and scored once offensively. Henderson threw TD passes of 23, 1 and 6 yards while going 19-of-25 with no interceptions for 127 yards. Harvey, a senior who became the Demons’ career kickoff return yardage leader in the season opener, posted his second career return TD with the third-longest runback in school history, the best since 1970. It answered a 23-yard fumble return touchdown on the previous play by the Delta Devils’ Javaris Fritz and lifted NSU up 14-7 with 6:39 showing in the opening quarter. Henderson’s first touchdown toss, a 23-yarder to Louis Hollier, came on NSU’s next series and made it 21-7. Henderson flipped a 1-yarder to tight end Chris Dever 3:38 before halftime for a 28-7 lead. Mississippi Valley opened the second half with its only scoring drive, a 9-play, 70-yard march wrapped up by Trey Bateaste’s 2-yard run midway through the third quarter to draw within 28-14. Northwestern scored on three straight series ending the third quarter and opening the final period to put the game away. The Demons drove 70 yards on seven plays, triggered by a 42-yard halfback pass from Rumeall Morris to Hollier, and netted a 27-yard John Shaughnessy field goal with 2:03 left in the third quarter to pad the margin to 31-14. They went 81 yards on seven snaps to go ahead 38-14 on the ensuing possession, with Morris pounding across from the 1 with 11:58 remaining. Two snaps earlier, Morris shook off two tacklers on a 58-yard run that came immediately after Henderson scampered 21 yards on a third-and-13 from NSU’s 16. Henderson capped the scoring with 5:59 remaining when he and Corey Simmons combined on a 6-yard touchdown pass.

Comeback falls short, Demons denied by Cowboys McNeese State dominated the first half and held off a comeback bid by Northwestern State as the No. 21-ranked Cowboys prevailed 30-22 in a Southland Conference football rivalry battle on Louis Bonnette Field at Cowboy Stadium. The Demons (2-3 overall, 0-1 in the Southland) did all their scoring after halftime but an interception by Ford Smesny at the McNeese 19 with 1:09 left to play stymied a bid to tie the game. It was the first interception suffered by Demons quarterback Brad Henderson this season, and it came after his pass skipped off the hands of a Demon receiver and downfield to Smesny. The Cowboys (4-1, 1-1) roared out to a 17-0 halftime lead, but weathered a rally as NSU shook off a poor first-half offensive performance with 262 second-half yards and three Henderson touchdown passes. He threw an 18-yard score to Clifton Brown three plays after Phillip Harvey ignited the Demons by bringing the second-half kickoff 60 yards to the McNeese 34. It was Harvey again making a dynamic play with a diving snag of a 41-yard bomb down the middle of the field from Henderson with 2:44 to go in the third quarter, drawing the Demons within 20-14 and more than answering a Josh Lewis 21-yard field goal less than two minutes earlier. Then with 5:58 remaining, after McNeese scored 10 points in less than a minute to seemingly put the game away, a Henderson TD pass and a two-point conversion set up a down-tothe-wire finish. Johvan Jilbert caught a medium-range sideline route, then danced through two Cowboys into the clear and exploded down the NSU sideline for a 58-yard touchdown. Henderson tossed a two-point conversion pass to Rob Walker to close the gap to one score and another two-point conversion, 30-22. The Demons seemed on the way to pulling it off. Taking over with 4:04 to go at their own 20, they drove 55 yards in nine plays, getting to the McNeese 25 on a 16-yard Henderson keeper on fourth-and-1 at the 41. Then, Henderson tried to connect with Trevor Goodie, but the ball skipped off his hands and Smesny snatched it at the 19, salting away the outcome, the 11th straight visit in vain by NSU to Lake Charles, and the eighth consecutive McNeese win in the series.

Demons make the plays to hold off Cardinals Robert Walker ran for 106 yards, including a key 3-yard touchdown with 6:46 remaining after Lesley Deamer’s sack, strip and fumble recovery at the Lamar 5-yard line as Northwestern State outlasted visiting Lamar 30-23 in a Southland Conference football game The Demons (3-3 overall, 1-1 in the Southland) opened a 27-17 advantage on Walker’s touchdown, then added a 20-yard John Shaughnessy field goal, his third of the game, with three minutes left. Lamar (2-4, 0-2) scored on an 8-yard Jordan Edwards reception from Caleb Berry with 36 seconds remaining, but an onsides kick was recovered by NSU’s Trevor Goodie to clinch the outcome. Deamer had a career-best eight tackles as NSU kept Lamar contained much of the night. The Demons doubled their season sack total with four, and came up with four turnovers, three fumble recoveries. The final 10-play drive by Lamar covered 78 of the Cardinals’ 285 total yards. Walker picked up his rushing yards on 23 carries. Receiver Phillip Harvey added 84 yards on seven carries, including a 26-yard run for an early 10-0 lead, and added a 66-yard punt return that set up Shaughnessy’s final field goal. Northwestern never trailed while remaining unbeaten at home in three games. Shaughnessy missed on his first field goal try, a 36-yarder at the end of NSU’s opening series of the game, for only his fifth misfire in his last 25 attempts. He pounded through a 41-yarder to end the Demons’ next possession for a 3-0 lead six minutes into the contest. Harvey’s TD run out of the wildcat formation came two plays after Damon Medcafe recovered a fumble forced by Anthony Gilbert at the Lamar 28, and put the Demons up 10-0 with 4:01 to go in the first quarter. NSU appeared to be heading toward a bigger lead when Tyrus McGlothen of Lamar forced a fumble that teammate James Washington scooped up and returned 62 yards for a stunning score 4:45 before halftime, drawing the Cardinals within 10-7. The Demons responded quickly, going 68 yards in eight plays including a 20-yard Harvey burst on the second snap, and going up 17-7 with 2:11 left in the half on a 4-yard Brad Henderson pass to Tucker Nims. Lamar took the second half kickoff and closed the gap on a 27-yard Kevin Johnson reception from Berry. The 14-play, 80-yard drive was ignited by accident, when Lamar punter Kollin Kahler fumbled the snap from his own 39, but picked it up and dashed 17 yards to sustain the series. NSU answered with a 42-yard Shaughnessy field goal at the 4:45 mark of the third quarter, moving ahead 20-14. Lamar’s Johnson raced 60 yards with the kickoff and a 15-yard personal foul penalty was tacked on, leading to a 28-yard Justin Stout field goal that brought the visitors within 20-17 with 2:20 left in the third period.

Southeastern Louisiana sacks Demons There were plenty of shortfalls contributing to Northwestern State’s Southland Conference loss as Southeastern Louisiana remained perfect in league play. The Demons missed an extra point for the first time this season. They had a punt blocked for the second time in 2012. They lost dynamic returner/receiver/wildcat back Phillip Harvey to a knee injury shortly after halftime, and by then, last week’s 100-yard rusher, Rob Walker, was already sidelined with a blow to the back on his second carry. They were down to only two starting offensive linemen. Picking up two early turnovers netted only three points. But the prevailing factor was the performance by the Lions (3-4 overall, 3-0 in the Southland), whose three wins have come in conference games over McNeese, Lamar and now Northwestern (3-4, 1-2). NSU trailed by double digits three times, but a 1:15-long, 62-yard hurry-up drive ending with quarterback Brad Henderson’s 8-yard keeper with 4:08 remaining brought the Demons back within five points. But in keeping with the Demons’ fortunes Saturday, an onside kick that wasn’t called happened. SLU had 10 players within 15 yards of the ball, and the kick was supposed to be chipped over the two lines of Lions, but Demons’ kicker John Shaughnessy hit it fat and the kick was fair caught by SLU. NSU started the day without its starting right guard and tackle because of injuries, and lost starting left tackle Larry Calcote midway through, just before Harvey was felled, taking away a player leading the Southland and 10th nationally in all-purpose yards (170 per game). Southeastern took charge with two straight long (75, 74 yards) scoring drives late in the first and early in the second quarter, going up 14-3.The Demons got a 4-yard Henderson pass to Corey Simmons 6:29 before halftime, but Shaugnessy’s PAT hit the upright and bounced back to leave it at 14-9. SLU drove for 12 plays to net a Seth Sebastian 22-yard field goal in the final minute of the half for a 17-9 advantage. Sebastian added a 30-yarder on SLU’s first second-half series. The Demons answered with a 92-yard, nine-play drive capped by true freshman Daniel Taylor’s 30-yard scamper on a throwback pass from Henderson, getting within 20-15. After the Lions rolled up 233 yards at halftime, nearly as many as NSU allowed in the entire game last week while beating Lamar, the Demons stopped most of the bleeding in the final two quarters.

Demons win wild Homecoming battle on Shaughnessy field goal John Shaugnessy kicked two fourth-quarter 42-yard field goals that made Jamaal White’s blocked extra

point in the first quarter the margin of victory as Northwestern State rallied past visiting Nicholls State 27-26 in a Southland Conference football nailbiter with five lead changes. The Demons (4-4 overall, 2-2 in the Southland) limited the Colonels (1-6, 0-4) to 49 yards after halftime and got the decisive Shaughnessy field goal with 8:57 remaining. Nicholls reached the Northwestern 41 with 1:44 left, but Cortez Paige sacked Colonels quarterback Landry Klann on the next play before two incompletions, the last broken up by true freshman Fred Thomas, handed the Demons the ball and allowed them to run out the game’s final 1:21. White smothered Nicholls’ first extra point, his second kick block this year, and he added his 10th career interception. The Colonels took their only lead by scoring 17 unanswered points in a 10-minute span from midway through the second quarter into the first 2:21 after halftime, but could not preserve it. Defensive end Cornist Broadway, who had two of the Demons’ four sacks, recovered a fumble forced by Wa’Derrious Sellers two plays after Shaughnessy’s first field goal drew Northwestern within 26-24 with 11:30 to go. A reverse pass by receiver Louis Hollier to Clifton Brown on the first play after Broadway’s fumble recovery got the Demons to the Colonels 25, setting up Shaughnessy’s game-winner six minutes into the final quarter. Broadway’s second sack blunted a Nicholls drive to the Demons’ 36 and led to a punt with 4:48 left. After the Demons got one first down, they punted with 1:53 left, and held off the Colonels to move their homefield record at Turpin Stadium this year to 4-0. The teams piled up points and yards in the first half that ended with Northwestern clinging to a 21-19 edge. Nicholls moved 96 yards on the game’s opening drive, cashing in on a 2-yard Marcus Washington plunge. The Demons answered with a 72-yard drive capped by the first of two scoring runs (2, 8 yards) by quarterback Brad Henderson. The Colonels marched 64 yards for a 28-yard Andrew Dolan field goal on their next series, then Northwestern jumped up 14-9 on a 55-yard dash by true freshman Daniel Taylor, his fifth score on his first 32 collegiate touches. Henderson’s second TD pushed the Demons ahead 21-9 13:13 before halftime. Dolan sliced the margin by three with a 22-yard field goal at the 7:19 mark. A half-minute afterward, Klann threw the first of his two scoring passes, a 29-yarder to Aldaro Russell on the first play following Dwayne Mitchell’s fumble recovery for Nicholls one snap after the kickoff. Nick LeBlanc pounced on a fumbled punt by the Demons at the hosts’ 9 and Jesse Turner broke three tackles on second down to complete a 9-yard pass from Klann as Nicholls moved ahead 26-21 just 2:21 into the second half. But the Colonels suddenly were unable to sustain drives as the Demons gradually gained control, post-

ing 151 second-half yards to follow 211 in the first two quarters.

Nov. 3, 2012 • Estes Stadium Conway, AR • 11,579 Bears Smother Demons, clinch SLC crown Central Arkansas quarterback Wynrick Smothers made sure history didn’t repeat itself when Northwestern State visited Estes Stadium Saturday night. His dynamic performance accounted for all five Bears scores, with the junior throwing for four of them and piling up 322 yards of total offense in a milestone 35-14 victory for the 13th-ranked winners. The Bears (8-2 overall, closing out their Southland season with a 6-1 mark) locked up the conference’s automatic FCS playoff slot and at least a share of the league title, their first since stepping up from Division II in 2007. The Demons (4-5, 2-3) lost to a nationally-ranked team for the sixth straight time since their 24-19 upset of the then 22nd-rated Bears on the same field two seasons ago. It was UCA’s 10th straight home win since that contest. NSU will host the Southland’s defending champion, No. 4 Sam Houston State, in a 3 o’clock game at Turpin Stadium next Saturday afternoon. The Bears got touchdown passes of 20, 33, 26 and 42 yards from Smothers along with a 57-yard run Smothers had 255 yards of total offense and was responsible for all four first-half touchdowns by the Bears, including a back-breaking 26-yard pass to Dominque Croom with 15 seconds left in the second quarter for a 28-14 advantage. Northwestern moved the ball impressively for the game’s first 20 minutes but ran out of gas after drawing within 21-14 on a 1-yard Brad Henderson scramble with 9:32 to go in the second quarter. The Demons netted just 13 yards on their last 11 plays of the half, notably failing to take advantage of the Bears’ first turnover, a fumble forced by Anthony Gilbert and recovered by Brashard Booker at the UCA 36 with 2:48 before halftime. UCA forced a three-and-out, took over with 1:56 left, and sharply moved 84 yards on seven plays, the last being Smothers’ third TD toss of the game. He opened with a 20-yarder to Brett Soft just 3:32 into play after a long punt return. Early in the second period, he laced a 33-yarder to Croom on the heels of breaking a 57-yard run for a score on the previous series, and the Bears were up 21-7. Northwestern moved the ball impressively for the game’s first 20 minutes but ran out of gas after drawing within 21-14 on a 1-yard Brad Henderson scramble with 9:32 to go in the second quarter.

fense throughout Saturday’s Southland Conference football contest at Turpin Stadium, rolling 52-17 after a 31-point tie-breaking second quarter. The Bearkats (8-2 overall, 6-1 in the Southland) claimed a co-championship in the conference with Central Arkansas, which locked up its share of the title last week with a 35-14 homefield victory over NSU (4-6, 2-4). Sam Houston, last year’s outright Southland champ and the national FCS runner-up, posted its seventh straight win since a 24-20 loss Sept. 22 at UCA. The Demons were held to just six first downs and 183 total yards, only 42 on the ground, while losing for the second straight week for the first time this season. The Bearkats posted 509 total yards (253 rushing, 256 passing) and ran 31 more plays than the Demons (81-50) while notching 26 first downs and holding the ball for 38:33 to NSU’s 21:27. Northwestern did get an 82-yard kickoff return touchdown by true freshman Ed Eagan that answered SHSU’s first score, a 55-yard run by Tim Flanders late in the first quarter, knotting the game at 7-all. The Bearkats scored on their next two possessions and six of their next seven to blow the game open. A 10-play, 55-yard drive netted a 34-yard Miguel Antonio field goal 21 seconds into the second period made it 10-7, and a 50-yard Brian Bell pass to tight end T.J. Jones on the first play after an ensuing NSU punt boosted SHSU ahead 17-7. Defensive back Bookie Sneed dashed 11 yards with an interception 7:54 before halftime to move Sam Houston up 24-7. It was the first pickoff suffered by Demons’ senior quarterback Brad Henderson in 115 attempts, and only the third interception he’s thrown this year. Bell laced a 38-yard bomb to Trey Diller 2:57 before halftime to cap a 68-yard drive and make it 31-7, then threw his third TD strike of the quarter with a 10-yarder to Chance Nelson 18 seconds before the half that ended a 10-play, 61-yard march moving the score to 38-7. Northwestern got the half’s last points on a 27-yard John Shaughnessy field goal at the horn, set up by a 53-yard Henderson bomb to Clifton Brown, who made a nifty run before being hauled down at the 10 with 3.7 seconds showing. Flanders, who posted his 22nd career 100-yard rushing game with 138 on 17 tries, powered in from four yards out midway through the third quarter, ending a 14-play, 80-yard drive for a 45-10 lead. Backup quarterback Chris Grett plunged in from two yards out with 8:09 left to play to wrap up a 12-play, 52-yard series. Henderson and junior receiver Louis Hollier hooked up on a pair of pretty pass plays, a sensational 30-yarder down the NSU sideline to the SHSU 5, then a fade route with Hollier making a twisting grab of a 4-yard TD lob with 5:47 left. That wrapped up a 63-yard drive by the Demons and gave them their only offensive touchdown of the game. With 21 NSU seniors making their final homefield appearance, the Demons missed closing out an unbeaten home slate and were assured of a losing season. Senior safety Brashard Booker had a career-high 16 tackles while two-time All-America linebacker Derek Rose, also a senior, also posted a career best with 14 stops, matched by junior backer Pat Black.

Final Standings

Nov. 17, 2012 • Homer Bryce Stadium Nacogdoches, TX • 8,341 Third-ranked Bearkats look the part in dismantling Demons Third-ranked Sam Houston State erupted in the second quarter and shackled Northwestern State’s of-

fense throughout Saturday’s Southland Conference football contest at Turpin Stadium, rolling 52-17 after a 31-point tie-breaking second quarter. The Bearkats (8-2 overall, 6-1 in the Southland) claimed a co-championship in the conference with Central Arkansas, which locked up its share of the title last week with a 35-14 homefield victory over NSU (4-6, 2-4). Sam Houston, last year’s outright Southland champ and the national FCS runner-up, posted its seventh straight win since a 24-20 loss Sept. 22 at UCA. The Demons were held to just six first downs and 183 total yards, only 42 on the ground, while losing for the second straight week for the first time this season. The Bearkats posted 509 total yards (253 rushing, 256 passing) and ran 31 more plays than the Demons (81-50) while notching 26 first downs and holding the ball for 38:33 to NSU’s 21:27. Northwestern did get an 82-yard kickoff return touchdown by true freshman Ed Eagan that answered SHSU’s first score, a 55-yard run by Tim Flanders late in the first quarter, knotting the game at 7-all. The Bearkats scored on their next two possessions and six of their next seven to blow the game open. A 10-play, 55-yard drive netted a 34-yard Miguel Antonio field goal 21 seconds into the second period made it 10-7, and a 50-yard Brian Bell pass to tight end T.J. Jones on the first play after an ensuing NSU punt boosted SHSU ahead 17-7. Defensive back Bookie Sneed dashed 11 yards with an interception 7:54 before halftime to move Sam Houston up 24-7. It was the first pickoff suffered by Demons’ senior quarterback Brad Henderson in 115 attempts, and only the third interception he’s thrown this year. Bell laced a 38-yard bomb to Trey Diller 2:57 before halftime to cap a 68-yard drive and make it 31-7, then threw his third TD strike of the quarter with a 10-yarder to Chance Nelson 18 seconds before the half that ended a 10-play, 61-yard march moving the score to 38-7. Northwestern got the half’s last points on a 27-yard John Shaughnessy field goal at the horn, set up by a 53-yard Henderson bomb to Clifton Brown, who made a nifty run before being hauled down at the 10 with 3.7 seconds showing. Flanders, who posted his 22nd career 100-yard rushing game with 138 on 17 tries, powered in from four yards out midway through the third quarter, ending a 14-play, 80-yard drive for a 45-10 lead. Backup quarterback Chris Grett plunged in from two yards out with 8:09 left to play to wrap up a 12-play, 52-yard series. Henderson and junior receiver Louis Hollier hooked up on a pair of pretty pass plays, a sensational 30-yarder down the NSU sideline to the SHSU 5, then a fade route with Hollier making a twisting grab of a 4-yard TD lob with 5:47 left. That wrapped up a 63-yard drive by the Demons and gave them their only offensive touchdown of the game. With 21 NSU seniors making their final homefield appearance, the Demons missed closing out an unbeaten home slate and were assured of a losing season. Senior safety Brashard Booker had a career-high 16 tackles while two-time All-America linebacker Derek Rose, also a senior, also posted a career best with 14 stops, matched by junior backer Pat Black.

This logo is on the field at Turpin Stadium in the location where Chris Waddell last stood before being fatally striken due to a rare heart condition on the day before spring practice, March 1, 2004. Each year on that day, the Demons perform community service projects in his honor. Former Associate SID Matthew Bonnette created the logo.

Prather was the first officially appointed head football coach. His best season was 1932, when the Demons went 7-1 and shut out five opponents. Prather is best known, however, as basketball coach at Northwestern (then called Louisiana Normal) for 36 years. He was 473-169 as a basketball coach and is the namesake for Northwestern’s basketball coliseum.

The Link “A chain is only as strong as its weakest link” The tradition of “The Link” traces back to the mid-1990s with Coach Sam Goodwin’s Demons. It is signified by “the link”- one piece of chain, worn hanging from a necklace, demonstrating total commitment of those players, coaches, and support staff involved in the team’s daily activities. Links are awarded to deserving team members as spring practice ends with the annual Joe Delaney Bowl spring game. They are also awarded to worth newcomers at the end of preseason camp in August. A concrete pillar that showcases a large bronze link is located at the end of the walkway the Demons take leaving their locker room and entering the playing field. At Turpin Stadium. All team members touch the link when they enter and leave the field, a sign of continuing commitment to “linking it up as Demons.” The pillar reads: “The Link” All NSU Demons who Have battled together On the field are Linked together forever Yesterday, today, Tomorrow and always. “Link it up”

SLC Champions: 1988 • 1997 • 1998 • 2004

Players throughout the decades of Demon football are embodied in the tradition of “The Link”

Demon Football Tradition

Demon Football Traditions Demons in the NFL Draft

There have been 35 Northwestern State players chosen in the NFL Draft, including 10 in the last 12 seasons. Three Demons have gone in the top five rounds since 2002 (Craig Nall, 2002, 5th round, Packers; Terrence McGee, 2003, 4th round, Bills; David Pittman, 2006, 3rd round, Ravens). NSU’s highest pick: RB John Stephens, 1988, 17th overall. The Demons’ first-ever draft pick: OG Walter Ledet, Eagles, 2nd round, 1939; The busiest round for NSU players: 2nd, with 7 Demons selected. The busiest year: 1999, when 3 Demons were picked (cornerbacks Kenny Wright and Jermaine Jones, defensive end Robert Daniel). Defensive back Jeremy Lane was the latest Demon taken in the draft - selected in the 6th round by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2012 draft.

Rookies of the Year

John Stephens

Two Demon greats have won pro Rookie of the Year awards. Tailback Joe Delaney was the 1981 AFC Rookie of the Year when he earned a trip to the Pro Bowl and was named Chiefs MVP after establishing a then-franchise record with 1,121 rushing yards, leading Kansas City to its first winning season since 1973. Seven years later, after breaking Delaney’s Demon career rushing record, tailback John Stephens won the Associated Press NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honor after running for 1,168 yards for New England.

Joe Delaney

Demons with NFL Longevity

Among the dozens of former Demons to play pro ball, there are an elite group whose careers stretched for many years. Topping the list is Pro Football Hall of Fame tight end Jackie Smith, who played 16 years (1963-78). Pro Bowl quarterback Bobby Hebert played in the NFL from 1985-96 (11 seasons) after three years starring in the USFL, getting a total of 14 pro seasons. All-Pro receiver Mark Duper spent 11 seasons in the NFL (1982-1992), as did offensive lineman Marcus Spears (1995-2005). Receiver Floyd Turner got in 10 seasons (1989-1998) as did safety Mike Green (2000-2009). Linebacker Gary Reasons played 9 years (1984-1992), as did cornerback Randy Hilliard (1990-1998). Receiver Al Dodd (1967-74) had 8 NFL seasons, ong with offensive guard Petey Perot (1979-85), cornerback Kenny Wright (1999-2008). Alltime AFL greats Charlie Hennigan and Charlie Tolar starred for the Houston Oilers for 7 years (1960-66), while Terrence McGee is entering his 10th season with Buffalo.

The Cajun Cannon, Bobby Hebert

Marcus Spears

He came to Northwestern in 1978 as a T-formation quarterback with a difficult-to-understand, thick Cajun accent. At the end of his redshirt sophomore year, Bobby Hebert was an honorable mention All-America. Injuries slowed him in his final two seasons, but he went from NSU to the fledgling USFL and became an instant star, winning the championship game MVP award for the Michigan Panthers. That launched an incredible 14-year pro career highlighted by eight seasons when he led the New Orleans Saints to their greatest success. Hebert was 49-26 (.653) as the Saints starting QB, leading the club to its only division title and its best ever record. Today, he cohosts the Big 870, WWL AM weeknights Sports Talk show in New Orleans and keeps close watch on his alma mater. Bobby Hebert

NFL Focused on NSU in the 1999 Draft

The 1998 Demons had three players (Kenny Wright, Jermaine Jones, Robert Daniel) chosen in the 1999 NFL Draft – more than were chosen from six of the Associated Press Top 25 major college teams, and as many or more than 12 of the AP Top 25, such as Penn State and UCLA. NSU led all Division I-AA programs and Louisiana institutions with three selections. No other college in the country, at any level, had both starting cornerbacks selected.

Charlie Hennigan

102

Legends of the AFL, Hennigan and Tolar When the American Football League was created in 1960, former Demon track star and football player Charlie Hennigan was teaching biology and coaching at JonesboroHodge High School, having been cut by the CFL’s Edmonton Eskimos. Demon All-America fullback Charlie Tolar was drafted by Pittsburgh, but cut in 1959. They were among 160 hopefuls who participated in an AFL tryout camp for the Houston franchise, and both beat the odds to make the team. Each became instant All-AFL stars who made the Oilers’ All-Time Team in the mid-1990s, voted by fans. Hennigan set pro records with 1,746 receiving yards in 1961 and 101 catches in 1964, marks that remained for 20-plus years. The 1,746 receiving yards still is third all-time, topped only by Jerry Rice and Isaac Bruce. Hennigan holds NFL records for consecutive 100yard receiving games (7) and most 200-yard receiving games (3) in a season, and ranks second all-time with 10 100-yard receiving games in a season. Tolar’s 5-6, 220-pound frame earned him nicknames like “Tank” and “The Human Bowling Ball” and his bullish style made him a hero to future NFL star Larry Csonka while earning him a pair of All-AFL honors. His colorful lifestyle earned him a line in a Willie Nelson song: “Men like Charlie Tolar, when they made him, they broke the mold.”

Northwestern State Demon Football Big Red, Jackie Smith

For a track standout whose hurdling skills made him most attractive to the Demons coming out of Kentwood High School, Jackie Smith made the most of his opportunity at NSU from 1959-62. His stats in football were modest in the run-based offenses of the early 1960s, but his size and speed interested pro scouts. Few 10th-round draft picks have worked out so spectacularly. Smith’s rugged style, combined with his speed and athleticism, redefined the positon of tight end in the NFL in the late 1960s. He made five straight Pro Bowl appearances for the St. Louis Cardinals from 1966-70 and retired after the 1978 season as the NFL’s all-time leading tight end with 480 career catches for 7,918 yards. He played in 121 consecutive games. In 1994, Kentwood came to Canton. “Big Red” was inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Last But Not Least, Mr. Irrelevant

Among the 34 Demons chosen in the NFL Draft, two hold a special distinction – they were the last players chosen in that year’s draft. Receiver Mike Almond was the 330th and last selection in 1979, going to the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers. Safety Mike Green went as the 248th choice in the 2000 draft, to Chicago. They were each the guests of honor for the “Irrelevant Week” celebration in Newport Beach, Cal., in June, making NSU the only program to have two “Mr. Irrelevants” in the 29-year hisJackie Smth tory of the festivities. Almond made it to the last cut but the Steelers had receivers Lynn Swann and John Stallworth, both in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Green not only made the Bears’ roster, he was their second-leading tackler over his last six seasons and before he was traded to NFC champion Seattle.

Rookie Star, Veteran Style

Along with winning the 1988 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award, former NSU tailback John Stephens was awarded the first Gale Sayers Humanitarian Citation in 1988. Stephens was the choice of a committee headed by Mike Green Sayers, the Hall of Fame running back who starred for the Chicago Bears. The award is given to the National Football League rookie demonstrating the most outstanding commitment of time and effort toward a personally designated charitable organization, which in Stephens’s case was the Roxbury (Mass.) Comprehensive Community Health Center.

The Turtle, All-Pro Terrence McGee

The Turtle came out of his shell in a big way. Cornerback Terrence McGee earned the nickname “Turtle” because of the way he wore his shoulder pads around his head until the last possible moment before preseason practices, to keep his head in the shade. McGee became a starter as a true freshman, and became a star a year later. He ran three punts back for touchdowns, broke the NCAA single-season record for punt return yardage and today stands as the Division I-AA all-time record holder for best career punt return average (17.6, 1999-2002). In his second pro season, 2004, he made the Pro Bowl as a return specialist and has emerged as one of the NFL’s better cover cornerbacks for Buffalo.

Demons on the SI Cover

For musicians, it’s the cover of the Rolling Stone. For athletes, being a Sports Illustrated coverboy is the ultimate. Two Demon greats have been there. All-Pro Mark Duper was the subject for the Nov. 19, 1984 issue showcasing the unbeaten Miami Dolphins, In the Oct. Terrence McGee 7, 1991 edition, Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert was on the cover illustrating the “Saints Alive” story saluting their best start ever. NSU products Jackie Smith, Joe Delaney and Hebert have been profiled inside the magazine, and in 2005, Marcus Spears provided the “Best Joke I Can Tell in Public” for SI readers.

Track and Football, a Demon Tradition

Dating back to the 1930s, football and track have been intertwined at Northwestern. The Demons’ first football All-American, Walter Ledet, was a track stalwart who became one of the great track coaches in state history, earning him a place in the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame. His powerhouse track programs attracted future pro greats Charlie Hennigan and Jackie Smith to Northwestern. Since then, many outstanding Demon football players have been two-sport stars, including track All-Americans and future pro players Joe Delaney, Mark Duper, Victor Oatis, Al Edwards and Ronnie Powell. Duper had never played football until Delaney and Oatis teased and prodded him into giving it a try for his junior season, 1980. Two years later, Duper was a second-round NFL Draft pick on the way to three Pro Bowls. In 1981, Delaney, Oatis, and Duper ran on the NCAA Division I champion 4x100 meter relay team. NSU remains the only FCS program ever to win an NCAA relay championship men or women indoors or outdoors.

Northwestern State Traditions

All-Americans

In 101 seasons of intercollegiate football, 42 Northwestern players have earned first or second-team All-America honors. Offensive guard Walter “Cajun” Ledet, later a highly-successful Demon track and field coach and assistant football coach, was the school’s first All-American in 1938. Only nine players — safety Al Dodd in 1965-66, tailback Joe Delaney in 1979-80, linebacker Gary Reasons in 1981-83, offensive tackle Marcus Spears in 1992-93, center William Broussard in 1998-99, safety Mike Green also in 1998-99, linebacker Jamall Johnson in 200304, defensive tackle Tory Collins in 2005-06, and linebacker Derek Rose 2010 and 2011 — won All-America honors in more than one season. Reasons became the first three-time All-American in Division I-AA history. In 1993, Marcus Spears became only the second I-AA player ever (along with Jerry Rice) to make the Football Writers Association of America All-America team. William Broussard and Mike Green, members of the memorable 1998 team which advanced to the national semi-finals for the first time in the program’s history, are the only two teammates at Northwestern to earn All-America status in consecutive seasons.

Chief Caddo

At 7 feet, 6-inches tall and 320 pounds, Chief Caddo is the biggest trophy in college football. The wooden Indian statue is awarded to the winner of each year’s Northwestern vs. Stephen F. Austin game. The stately Chief is symbolic of the kinship between the cities of Natchitoches and Nacogdoches, home of SFA. He was named “Chief Caddo” to honor the Indian tribe that not only first settled the two communities, but provided safety for the early white settlers in the area. The statue originated in 1960, when Northwestern and SFA decided the loser of their 1961 game would have a tree chopped down from its nearby forest to be sent to the winning school, who would have a statue carved. The Demons won that 1961 matchup 35-19 and SFA delivered a 2,000-pound black gum log to Northwestern. Harold Green of Logansport spent over 230 hours carving the statue. Since the Demons and Lumberjacks have been playing for Chief Caddo, Northwestern holds a 28-17-1 advantage in the series. In the 48 years of the Chief’s life, he’s spent 33 in Natchitoches. The two teams did not play each other from 1965-68 and in 1973. To those who know the Chief best, that comes as no surprise. Even an SFA coach admitted a few years ago that the Chief seemed to like Natchitoches, blaming it on meat pies and Cajun cooking. But veteran Northwestern followers know his allegiance goes even deeper. After all, if you were a wooden statue, would you want to spend time around a bunch of Lumberjacks? College Football Trophies

The distinctive Northwestern athletic logo was designed in 1984 by former Demon kicker Dale Quickel. The outline of Louisiana was added in 1999.

Conference champions

Since World War II, the Demons have won or shared 10 conference titles. Northwestern won Gulf States Conference crowns outright in 1953, 1962 and 1966 and shared the title in 1957-58. The Demons won the Gulf South crown in 1972, then shared the Gulf Star Conference championship in 1984. Northwestern won the Southland Conference title in 1988 with a 20-17 victory at No. 1-ranked Stephen F. Austin in the final game of the regular season. In 1997, the Demons shared the title with McNeese State. In 1998, NSU made it back-to-back championships winning the title outright with a 6-1 conference mark and in 2004, NSU shared the title with Sam Houston State after posting a 4-1 league mark.

The Delaney Memorial

ment, the Delaney Memorial Weekend is held during spring practice. It starts with the Delaney Bowl, an intersquad game, and features a scramble golf tournament. Over $200,000 has been generated for the scholarship fund named for the heroic Delaney, the 1981 AFC Rookie of the Year who died in a 1983 attempt to rescue three drowning children. One survived.

Demon dressing room etiquette

Whatever you do, when visiting the Demon locker room, watch where you walk. Don’t dare step on the white Demon head in the center of the room on the plush purple carpet. If you do, you risk the rath of the entire senior class.

The George Doherty Wing

The Demon football offices, as well as the offices for the track and baseball coaching staffs, are located on the second floor of the NSU Fieldhouse. On June 8, 1991, the area was named “The George Doherty Wing” in memory of the former Demon head coach and athletic director, who spearheaded planning of the ultramodern facility.

When Bill Brent’s Spirit of Northwestern Marching Band plays it, the music is called “Trio to British Eighth March” but the lyrics lend a distinct Demon flair: Go, ye Demons, take the field Northwestern Demons never yield So fight Demons, win tonight Victory is on our side Purple and White shall ever reign Filling the air with battle strain So Demons forever stand And fight for dear old Demon land! All Northwestern players learn the fight song during their first week of preseason practice as Demons. The team sings the song after each win.

How we became the Demons

In 1923, when Northwestern was known as Louisiana Normal College, President V.L. Roy and Coach H. Lee Prather held a contest, open to students, to choose a nickname for Normal’s athletic teams. A $10 prize, donated by the athletic department, was on the line. Names suggested included the Gridiron Knights, Daredevils, Boosters, Sharks, Cannons, Deers, Muskateers, Invicibles, Ground Hogs, Royalists, Cyclops, Bloodhounds, Professors, Cannon Balls, Wasps, and Rattlesnakes. A committee tabbed two: Braves and Demons. After a vote of the students, Aileen Ritter and Truett Scarborough split the $10 because each had suggested “Demons.”

Stadium Namesakes

At least four Demon coaches have stadiums named after them. NSU’s Turpin Stadium for football honors 22-year head coach Harry “Rags” Turpin. NSU’s Ledet Track Complex pays tribute to head track and assistant football coach Walter Ledet. NSU’s Brown-Stroud Field baseball stadium pays tribute, in part, to longtime assistant football and head baseball coach Alvin “Cracker” Brown. Louisiana Tech’s Aillet Stadium honors longtime head coach Joe Aillet, who grew up in Natchitoches, played for the Demons and was an assistant coach on the 1939

undefeated team before being hired as head coach of the rival Bulldogs. Brown replaced him on Turpin’s staff, which also included Ledet.

On September 22, 1984, the Demon mascot received his official name by means of another contest, sponsored by the Athletic Department. The contest was open to faculty, staff, and students. The objective to find a name for the Demon. Over 300 entries were submitted to the committee. The grand prize was an all expense paid weekend at the Louisiana State Fair Classic. Ray Carney, an alum of the University, was the official winner with “Vic” which is short for “Victory.”

Retired jerseys

Hundreds of players have worn the Purple and White in the nine decades of Northwestern football, but only five have had their jersey numbers permanently retired. Al Dodd (41), an All-American on the unbeaten 1966 team, was the first to receive this honor. Joe Delaney’s No. 44 was retired at halftime of his final game in 1981. Gary Reasons’ No. 34 was set aside after his career ended in 1983. Jackie Smith’s No. 80 was retired at homecoming 1994. In 1997, the familiar No. 12 jersey worn by Bobby Hebert was retired during halftime ceremonies of homecoming.

The State Fair Classic

Gone, but not forgotten. For 40 years, old rivals Northwestern and Louisiana Tech played in Shreveport during the first weekend of the Louisiana State Fair. After the game, players and fans from both teams often made their way down the midway, enjoying the rides and carnival games. The series ended when Louisiana Tech withdrew after the 1987 meeting, halting what at the time was the South’s oldest active Division I-AA rivalry. The teams played for “The Rag,” a banner displaying names and colors of both schools which hung in the Student Union of the winning team for the next year.

Trident Test

Each spring and before fall practice, the Demon players go through a series of strength, speed and conditioning tests. Since three aspects of athleticism are being tested, they were named “Trident Tests” by the coaching staff. Each player is awarded an overall grade based on his combined ranking among all team members in every test. The winner receives the Kirt Straughter Memorial Award, named in honor of the 1989 Trident Test winner who drowned that year.

Spirit of Northwestern Marching Band

Nearly 300 strong, the dynamic Northwestern band has never lost a halftime show under the direction of director Bill Brent. The band’s enthusiasm was a major factor, said Coach Sam Goodwin, as Northwestern’s “Road Warriors” won key SLC games at North Texas and Stephen F. Austin to capture the 1988 SLC title. At home games, it’s a treat to watch Brent’s game day rehearsals.

Media

Few events in Southland Conference history attracted as much attention as the Oct. 24, 1992, spontaneous scrap between Northwestern’s mascot, Vic the Demon, and Northeast’s Chief Brave Spirit. “The Tussle in Turpin” happened midway through the second quarter of the Homecoming game. KTBS-TV’s Sam Schaecter made it his “Play of the Day” and the footage was picked up by ESPN -who declared Vic the victor. Even Monroe’s News-Star newspaper and KNOE-TV conceded the decision to Vic, who rallied after the Chief knocked off his head. Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle called it “the fight of the year” and wrote, “Vic won a unanimous decision. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a fight where someone’s head actually gets ripped off -- and yet he rallies to win!” The footage made its way around the country, appearing on CNN Sports Tonight, ESPN College Gameday, NBC’s Today Show, KNBC in Los Angeles, WUSA in Washington, D.C., and many other TV outlets. USA TODAY featured the mascot melee in its Oct. 28, 1992 issue. At year’s end, the fight was named -by viewer vote -- fourth on CNN’s Plays of the Year” show. The frisky mascots met again, with plenty of fanfare but no altercation, when NLU visited for a Jan. 30 basketball game. Shane Clabaugh, the senior social work major who served as Vic, explained: “After he tore my head off, that was it. That goes against the code of ethics for mascots.” Clabaugh said he won: “I scored a takedown. I was mad because he knocked my head off. I wanted to take off his head -- his real one.”

Dr. Randall J. Webb Northwestern State President

Dr. Randall J. Webb stated when he became Northwestern State University’s 18th president in July of 1996 that his primary objective would be to help make his Alma Mater the best institution it could be. Beginning his 18th year, it’s clear that Webb is achieving that admirable goal. Enrollment has reached record levels during Webb’s tenure as president and exceeded 10,500 for the first time in history in the fall of 2004. Webb has also been at the forefront in recent years of moving the university toward higher admission standards, which has resulted in some enrollment declines but in the enrollment of students with greater academic potential

and aptitude. Retention has increased at the university, the average ACT score of students has gone up, and high school student leaders are enrolling in Northwestern in record numbers. There has been a substantial increase in the number of high school valedictorians and salutatorians among first-time freshmen at the university. External funding for NSU has also increased dramatically under Webb’s leadership. In the first capital campaign in its history, the university received $32.7 million to far exceed its goal of $18.84 million. That funding included the establishment of numerous endowed chairs and professorships to enhance academic programs at the university. In addition to the private funding, Northwestern has received more grant monies in recent years from state and federal agencies and private foundations than at any time since its founding in 1884. Webb has also expanded the university’s outreach by spearheading the development at NSU of the largest electronic education and distance learning network of any university in Louisiana. NSU offers courses and degree programs to students across the nation and world through Internet and compressed video. Millions of dollars have been obtained during Webb’s presidency for new and renovated facilities. A new $6.9 million Wellness, Recreation and Activity Center opened on the campus in 2005; and Morrison Hall, the Family and Consumer Sciences Building, and Williamson Hall have been completely renovated and restored. A new Student Services Center on the site of the former West Caspari Hall was completed in May 2012. Over $32 million in construction by a private company has added two modified residence halls to the campus in recent years. Funding has also been obtained to rebuild the East Caspari Hall and replace the underground electrical distribution system. Northwestern academic programs and athletic teams continue to receive positive national recognition. The Computer Information Systems program, for example, won five consecutive national championships in academic competition in systems analysis, and the NSU men’s basketball team defeated Iowa in the NCAA national championship tournament. A former center on the Northwestern football team, Webb is an avid supporter of the university’s athletic programs and has held positions of leadership at the national level in intercollegiate athletics. He has served as chair of the board of directors of the Southland Conference and has been a member of the prestigious NCAA Executive Council and the NCAA Division I Board of Directors that oversee all major policy decisions by the governing body for major college sports. He currently serves as the Southland Conference representative on the NCAA Presidential Advisory Group. A 1965 graduate of Northwestern in mathematics and business education, Webb earned a master of science degree in mathematics from NSU in 1966. He received a doctorate in education from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1971 with a concentration in mathematics and research. Webb was a member of the faculty of Longwood College in Farmville, Va, from 1966 until 1974. He served as Director of Higher Education and Teacher Certification in the Louisiana Department of Education from 1974 through 1976. He moved to Southeastern Louisiana University in 1976 and in 13 years there held positions as director of institutional research, EEO officer, registrar and member of the mathematics faculty. He became Dean of Instruction and Graduate Studies and professor of mathematics at Northwestern in 1989. In that position, he was responsible for campus-wide policy development, planning, advancement, and review of both graduate and undergraduate programs. While Webb was in that position, graduate enrollment increased by 35 percent, and internal funding for faculty research increased by 200 percent. As dean, Webb proposed the concept for NSU’s successful Freshman Connection Program and served as a member of the writing team for a grant proposal that resulted in a five year, $1.7 million Title III grant to improve student retention. He also chaired the steering committee for NSU’s Self Study for the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. He has been active in the community as a member of the board of directors of the Natchitoches Chamber of Commerce and as a member of the Association for the Preservation of Historic Natchitoches, the Natchitoches Historic Foundation, the NatchitochesNorthwestern Symphony Society, Rotary Club, and the First Baptist Church. Webb and his wife Brenda have two daughters, both honor graduates of Northwestern. Tamara and her husband, former NSU All-America baseball pitcher Reggie Gatewood, live in Long Valley,N.J., with their children Tyler and Ava. Lauren is married to former outstanding NSU baseball player Nick Simokaitis, and they live in St. Louis with their sons Nicholas and Benjamin.

Jerry Pierce

Vice President • External Affairs Only a handful of people have served Northwestern State as long as Jerry Pierce has, and nobody has done so in a more understated manner. Beginning his 49th 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 begins his 23rd 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 is an avid tennis player who 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 oversees university operations in athletics, alumni and development, public and media relaNSU Athletic Council tions and assists President Dr. Randall J. Webb in governmental affairs Jody Biscoe (Chair) activities. Many of those duties were his since the 1970s as he worked Kaymin Carter under four previous presidents as Northwestern advanced from NAIA Lyn Christopher to NCAA College Division to NCAA Division I athletic status in 1977. Catherine Faucheaux A 1961 graduate of Northwestern, Pierce served as trainer/ Cole Gentry manager for the Demon football team during his college years, workKelee Grimes ing closely with legendary coach Jack Clayton.

Dr. Mark Swanstrom He founded, in 1972, the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame facility in Ed Ward Prather Coliseum on the NSU campus, providing a home for an entity Dr. Pat Pierson created in 1958. He established annual induction activities that remain in place nearly four decades later, and served as director of the Hall Ex-Officio Members for 19 years until his promotion to vice president in 1990 forced him Greg Burke to step aside from the volunteer post. Carrie Crowell He helped guide Northwestern into three athletic conferences Dustin Eubanks (Trans America, 1979; Gulf Star, 1983; Southland, 1987) and NCAA Roxanne Freeman Division I status in 1977. He is a past president of the Southland and Dr. Patrice Moulton has served the conference through other offices and committee posiDr. Vicki Parrish tions. Jerry Pierce 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 more than two decades later. Pierce is regarded as one of the most effective legislative liaisons for Louisiana’s higher education system. He is also a popular 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 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 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, 23, and Miranda, 12, and two stepchildren, Nicholas and Natalie.

At the outset of his 18th year as director of athletics at Northwestern State, Greg Burke has received national acclaim for the job he’s done in his adopted hometown. Burke has been athletics director at Northwestern 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 nearly all of the school’s NCAA Division I sports. Last February, 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. Two 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. About to begin a term on the NCAA Division I Committee on Academic Performance, Burke previously served on the prestigious NCAA Championships/Sports Management Cabinet. He previously served a four-year term on the NCAA Division I Football Issues Committee (1999-2002) and concurrently served a term on the eight-member NCAA FCS Committee that administers the national playoffs. Burke has served as a site supervisor for Football Championship Subdivision playoff games across the nation and he is regarded as one of the country’s premiere advocates of FCS football. Burke’s 17 years as athletic director include 35 Southland Conference regular-season or tournament championships, 59 All-American and Academic All-American student athletes, and three U.S. Olympic competitors. Twenty NSU teams have taken part in NCAA or WNIT postseason competition. All of the school’s athletic facilities have undergone nearly $7 million in improvements in the past four 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; and a $500,000 softball grandstand project completed earlier this year. 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 displayed a remarkable ability to hire dynamic head coaches, notably current staffers Mike McConathy, Louisiana’s all-time career basketball wins leader; 2013 Louisiana softball coach of the Year Donald Pickett; Hugh and Stephanie Hernesman, who just led the volleyball program to its best season in the 31-year history of the program; and several whose success at Northwestern State propelled them to national prominence in subsequent positions. From his first day on the job, Burke has stressed the importance of having a balanced athletic program. To that end, tremendous competitive strides have been made in women’s athletics under his guidance. Along with the aforementioned volleyball surge, NSU’s soccer program was the first in Louisiana to reach the NCAA Tournament. Softball and tennis made NCAA Tournament appearances in 2013, the second in four seasons for Lady Demon tennis. Burke has 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. 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!” In 2005, Burke was one of three recipients of the All-America Football Foundation’s Gen. Robert R. Neyland Outstanding Athletic Director Award and that same year, was also tabbed as one of two Natchitoches Parish Cenla Newsmakers of 2005 by the Alexandria Town Talk newspaper’s editorial staff. He received the 2006 “Outstanding Alumni Award” from his alma mater, Marlington High School in Alliance, Ohio, recognizing his community service and professional achievements. Burke became one of only 21 alumni honored since the award was instituted in 1982. Burke is a past president of the Natchitoches Kiwanis Club and remains active in that civic group. He has also been part of the steering committee for the Natchitoches Christmas Festival and is a former president of the Natchitoches Area Jaycees. He is involved with the American Heart Association and was 2010 March of Dimes chairman locally. His wife, Susu, is a Natchitoches native, NSU graduate and an elementary teacher. Their 19-year-old daughter, Catherine, graduated from St. Mary’s High Greg Burke with wife, Susu, and daughter, Catherine. School in May of 2012 and attends Louisiana Tech.
