  Assistant AD/Sports Information Director

In charge of athletic media relations at his alma mater since January of 1989, Doug Ireland coordinates publicity efforts for Northwestern's 14 intercollegiate sports teams through local, regional and national media outlets in print, broadcast, television and the internet. He also serves in the volunteer role of chairman of the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame. Ireland assumed that post in April 1991. His 1992 Demon Football Media Guide won "Best in the Nation" in FCS Division from the College Sports Information Directors of America. A 1997 story on Joe Delaney, "The Guy We Called Joe D," won a national second-place award in a COSIDA writing contest. Ireland has won numerous awards as SID from the Louisiana Sports Writers Association. He was recently awarded the Distinguished American Award� by the S.M. McNaughton Chapter of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame. Several of his assistant SIDs and graduate assistants have advanced to prominence in media fields. Former NSU sports information staffers under Ireland include Bruce Ludlow, assistant commissioner of the Southland Conference for media relations; Bill Magrath, media relations manager for the Sports Business Daily; Mike Morrison, co-editor of the ESPN Information Please Almanac; Daucy Crizer, assistant AD and business manager at Lamar; Erik Cox, SID at Lamar; Dart Volz, former SID at Southeastern Louisiana; Melissa Reynaud, former assistant SID at LSU; Kenny Lannou, SID at Kansas State; and Troy Mitchell, SID at Henderson State. Dustin Eubanks, NSU's director of NCAA compliance, worked in the NSU SID office as a graduate assistant and for two years as the fulltime assistant. And Adam Jonson, NSU’s ticket manager, was a student and graduate assistant in the SID office. In 1981-82, while an undergraduate at Northwestern, Ireland worked as chief of the Shreveport Times Natchitoches Bureau, coordinating news coverage of an eight-parish region along the Red River. From 1982-85, he was assistant SID at Southwestern Louisiana, working with a men's basketball program that made three straight postseason tournament appearances. He won CoSIDA publications and writing awards while at USL. Ireland was the sports editor of the Natchitoches Times in 1985-86 and attended graduate school at Northeast Louisiana before joining the Alexandria Town Talk sports staff in 1987. In 18 months at the Town Talk, he covered both NSU and LSU sports and won 15 writing awards from the Louisiana Sports Writers' Association. In 2001, the LSWA presented its prestigious Mac Russo Award to Ireland for his contributions to the organization. In 1999, Ireland was awarded honorary membership in the Graduate N Club at NSU by the university's group of athletic lettermen for his service to Northwestern and its athletic program, and in 2003 he was given full membership. He was appointed by President Dr. Randall Webb to serve a two-year term on the inaugural University Planning Council in 1997-99. A member of the Blue Key National Honor Fraternity and a student government senator while completing a journalism degree from Northwestern, Ireland was editor of the student newspaper "Current Sauce" as a sophomore before going to work for the Shreveport Times. He was an all-district baseball player and the student body president at Jonesboro-Hodge High School, where he was a wingback for the Tigers' 1977 Class AA state football finalists coached by Don Shows.

Bonnette joined the staff in August 2003 after spending a year as sports information director at Henderson State (Ark.) and for former NSU legendary coach Sam Goodwin. Bonnette surpervises all layouts and design work for all media guides and game programs and is the primary media contact for the NSU baseball, women’s basketball and volleyball teams. A 2002 graduate of McNeese State University, Bonnette is no stranger to the SID field as he is the son of longtime McNeese SID Louis Bonnette, who is a member of the CoSIDA Hall of Fame, Southland Conference Hall of Honor, Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame, and the McNeese State Athletic Hall of Fame. Matthew's older brother, Michael, is the sports information director at LSU. While at McNeese, Bonnette served two years as the sports editor of the school’s newspaper. He also worked as both a volunteer and student sports information director while being employed at KPLC-TV as the commercial production manager where he won several advertising awards for his work.

2010 Season Preview

New leadership brings new attitude for ‘10 season A new era for Northwestern State volleyball gets underway this weekend when the Lady Demons, under the direction of new co-head coaches Hugh and Stephanie Hernesman, takes part in the Arkansas State Volleyball Classic beginning with Friday matches against Louisiana Tech and the host Red Wolves. After enduring a 3-21 record last season, NSU returns eight letterwinners and five starters while six newcomers join the team to provide added talent and depth. “We're in a learning mode right now, so there is a lot of teaching going on,” said Hugh Hernesman. “But I really feel like things are going well. “A coach that I have always admired once said that competition was a time to sit back and evaluate how effective your training has been and what direction you need to go for the coming weeks. There will obviously be teaching moments and opportunities to adjust our tactics early on. But without a real opportunity to scout our opponents and prepare like we will the rest of the season, we're going to have to make it work on the fly at times. We also believe that we've got a number of combinations and versatility in our lineups, so I believe that there will be an opportunity to see different combinations together as well as people in different roles.” The following is a list of position breakdowns for this year's Lady Demon squad. Outside Hitter -- Senior Taylor Deering returns to this spot where she played in 18 matches last season and knocked down 48 kills and had 29 digs. She'll be expected to be the team's best on the outside but will need to overcome some injuries. Junior Megan Manning and 10

Hugh and Stephanie Hernesman are in their first year as co-head coaches for the Lady Demon program.

sophomore Nicole Hajka also return from last season. Manning started in all 24 matches and was fifth on the team with 94 kills while ranking second with 240 digs. Hajka was fourth on the squad with 78 kills last season in 22 matches played. Newcomers Kourtney Adams and Jessica Guttierrez should battle for some playing time. Middle Blocker -- Laranda Spann and Sarah Jones, two of the top three hitters returning from last year's team, returns and will be joined by junior returner Brittany Fruge and newcomer Holly Moreno. Spann, who will be a senior this year, ranked second in kills last year with 183 and a 2.10 kills per game average. She was also third on the team with a .157 hitting percentage and second with 58 blocks. Jones, a sophomore this year, ranked third on www.nsudemons.com

the team with 122 kills and a 1.40 per game average. She was third with a .130 hitting percentage and 42 total blocks. Fruge added 46 kills and 10 service aces in 21 matches played while Moreno, a junior college transfer, should see a siginificant amount of playing time. Opposite/Right-Side -- Fruge seems to be the top choice at this spot due to her ability to hit multiple tempo sets. Other options for the position will be Spann, Deering, and Guttierrez. Libero -- Returning starter Zanny Castillo was injured on the first day of preseason practices and could miss some time. That will leave the libero position up for grabs among several players, including, who was second on the team with 208 digs and returning Great Tradition • Brighter Future

Laranda Spann returns as NSU’s top hitter.

letterwinner Lauren Peltier (103 digs). The newcomers of Sarah Gillis, Lexi Colvin, and Guttierrez are other options as Gillis could be the one to push for the starting position while Guttierrez could be the dark horse of the group. Setter -- NSU lost one of its all-time greatest setters when Megan Dockery graduated last year. That leaves the position wide open between Peltier, who was second on the team last year with 114 set assists, and newcomer Lauren Joyner. Joyner had an outstanding club season and could be the front-runner to be the opening day starter. “We've had quite a few highlights from camp so far,” said Hernesman. “I feel as though the group is really continuing to grow as they did the past spring. If I were to point out some individuals that have done it on a consistent basis so far, I would say that Kourtney Adams has probably raised her stock the most. Sarah Jones is Great Tradition • Brighter Future

another returner that has made quite an impression. Her strength has always been her athletic ability, but she is soaking up our system and her offensive game is improving almost by the practice. Lastly, I would say that Brittany Fruge has also left a great impression on the staff. She came into camp in great shape and that has helped a lot; but on top of that, she's been someone that has stepped into the offensive void created with the graduation of Yelena Enwere. We've got to find a way to replace all of those kills and I think that these three in particular have shown that they are up to the task. “We're real excited with the newcomers and their ability to contribute right away. Sarah Gillis has made a real impression. She's got a real natural touch and the things that I saw out of her this past club season are showing up in our gym. I think our fans will enjoy watching her play, as she's got a real knack for the spectacular play. “Jessica Guttierrez has also done a great job so far. Pretty much every team has the one 'run through a brick wall' type of player. That is Jess for us. But on top of that, she's a skilled defender and smart hitter. I believe that those qualities put her into the mix as both a libero/defensive specialist and an outside hitter. “Lauren Joyner battled a minor knee injury early in camp, but has also let a good impression. She is a natural at the setting position as well as a player with strengths in other areas besides setting.” The Lady Demons will start the season with 13 matches on the road before the Sept. 23 home opener against Stephen F. Austin. NSU will play in the Samford Invitational on Sept. 3-4 againg the host team, Tennessee Tech, Syracuse and North Texas. Following that, NSU will www.nsudemons.com

play at the McNeese State Invitational on Sept. 10-11 and will go up against Prairie View, Louisiana-Monroe and UNO. The next weeked puts NSU in Conway, Arkansas to take part in the UCA Sugar Bear Classic against UCA (a conference match), Jackson State and Memphis.

Senior setter Lauren Peltier will look to be NSU’s primary setter. 11

2005 and 2006 seasons, coached two ASC West Division Players of the Year, two league newcomers of the year, 10 ASC All-Conference selections, and a first team Academic All-American. He also guided his team to the 2006 ASC tournament championship and the program's first ever NCAA Tournament appearance. His 2005 team won the ASC West Division title and was an ASC tournament runner-up. His program won the AVCA Team Academic Award for the 200405 sports calendar year. "I think very highly of both Hugh and Stephanie," said John Neese, Director of Athletics at Hardin-Simmons. "Hugh is very well organized and knows where to look for recruits. He has a quiet intensity which makes him successful. Stephanie is very driven and also brings tremendous organizational skills. She related very well to our players. In fact, when the Hernesmans left for Ball State, the great relationship that they had developed with our players made their departure especially difficult." "They (the Hernesmans) turned Hardin-Simmons around mainly because of a tireless work ethic.....technically, they know their stuff," said Julie Jenkins, 25-year head coach at Trinity University and a Division III rival. After Hardin-Simmons, the couple moved to Ball State Great Tradition • Brighter Future

and helped coach the 2008 and 2009 teams to the MidAmerican Conference Tournament, where the Cardinals lost to the eventual champions both seasons. In two years, they coached two All-MAC performers as well as developed two players that were named to the 2008 All-MAC Freshman team. They also were a major factor in boasting Ball State's RPI from No. 254 in their first season in 2007, to No. 152 this past year. Hugh began his collegiate coaching career at WisconsinWhitewater in 1995 and helped guide the Warhawks to nine consecutive NCAA Division III Tournament appearances, including four Final Four appearances (1995, 2000, 2001, 2002) and the 2002 National Championship. His teams won six WIAC Conference titles and posted a 305-45 won-loss record. He also developed and coached eight AVCA All-Americans, including the 2002 National Player of the Year, 10 AVCA All-Region players, and 14 WIAC All-Conference athletes. Stephanie was a three-time AVCA All-American and AllRegion honors as a player at Wisconsin-Whitewater from 1995-98.

Said Stephanie: "We feel fortunate to have learned the lessons of successfully rebuilding programs and feel that NSU has the pieces in place that will allow this sort of program transformation as well. It will take a lot of work from the staff, the support staff and the current players, but it can be done. We've been through the highs and lows and understand what it takes - hard work in the gym and in the classroom, a detail-oriented recruiting plan and a tactical system to go along with solid opponent scouting."

Elaina Kakatolis Graduate Assistant Coach 1st season at NSU Ball State, 2010

Northwestern State co-head volleyball coaches Hugh and Stephanie Hernesman have announced the services of Elaina Kakatolis who will be helping out as a graduate assistant for the Lady Demons this season. Kakatolis comes to NSU after lettering four years in volleyball at Ball State where she earned her bachelor's degree in accounting this past May. As a player at Ball State, Kakatolis ended her career ranked 14th in the program history with 2,203 attempts; finished as one of the top blockers in program history, ranking 16th in block assists (227) and 18th in career total blocks (249); and her 127 sets played in 2008 tie as the 17th-best single-season total in the program. "Adding Elaina to our staff is going to be huge for our program," commented Hugh Hernesman. "For all three years that we were together at Ball State, Elaina was a leader and captain for the team. Her teammates gravitated to her and she has a nice, easy calm about her. As a three-year starter, Elaina's experience of playing within our unique systems of play is going make her a great resource for our players. The bottom line is that we are adding another coach that knows what we do as well as we do, that will step right in without any sort of learning curve. On top of that, Elaina is a very organized and responsible individual, which will be invaluable to the day-to-day operations of the program." "I'm very excited about the opportunity to continue my education and to be a graduate assistant for the NSU volleyball program and the Hernesmans," said Kakatolis. "I have played for them the past three seasons and am very happy to spend the next couple of years working with them and NSU." As a high school player at Franklin Monroe in Ohio, Kakatolis helped guide her team to a 16-7 record her senior year and a 63-26 mark over her career. She led her team to three sectional runner-up finishes and a pair of conference championships and was the conference player of the year as a senior. She tallied a school-record 298 kills as a senior to go along with a .443 attack percentage while recording 100 blocks and 125 digs. She was named all-area first team her final two seasons as well as first team all-district. She was also a three-time first team all-cross country selection. Born on Sept. 1, 1986 in Greenville, Ohio, Kakatolis is the daughter of Peter and Susan Kakatolis and has one sister, Kaitlyn.

University Administration Dr. Randall J. Webb Northwestern State President Dr. Randall J. Webb stated when he became Northwestern State University’s 17th president in July of 1996 that his primary objective would be to help make his Alma Mater the best institution it could be. It is apparent after more than 14 years that Webb is achieving that admirable goal. Under his leadership, Northwestern became the first public college or university in Louisiana to achieve 100 percent national accreditation of all eligible academic programs. 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. 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 and West Caspari Halls, 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.

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 Natchitoches-Northwestern 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 McKinney, Texas, 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.

University Administration DEMONS’ DECADE OF EXCELLENCE

Jerry Pierce Vice President/External Affairs Jerry Pierce is the Cal Ripken of the Northwestern State athletic program. Day after day, year after year, Pierce is in the lineup, fielding his position with aplomb, and delivering at the plate, knocking a ball out of the park from time to time but always taking an understated profile, seeing himself as a role player. Beginning his 46th year on the university's staff, Pierce's impact on NSU and the city of Natchitoches can't be measured as easily as Ripkin's Baseball Hall of Fame statistics, but they are equally indelible. He begins his 21st 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. NSU Athletic Council Pierce is an avid tennis player who has been a member John Ackel of USTA teams that have won more than a dozen state chamJody Biscoe (chair) pionships, five regional titles and one national championship.

After earning his Greg Burke journalism degree, Pierce went to work for the New Orleans Dustin Eubanks Times Picayune, serving as a reporter and editor. He was Jodie Heinicka named executive sports editor at the age of 24. Dr. Patrice Moulton In 1965, he chose to raise his two sons in Natchitoches and Dr. Vicki Parrish returned to NSU as sports information director. He was proJerry Pierce moted to news bureau director two years later and assumed additional responsibilities in athletics, alumni affairs and other areas through the years. He founded, in 1972, the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame facility in Prather Coliseum on the NSU campus, providing a home for an entity created in 1958. He established annual induction activities that remain in place nearly four decades later, and served as director of the Hall for 19 years until his promotion to vice president forced him to step aside from the volunteer post. He helped guide Northwestern into three athletic conferences (Trans 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 more than a decade 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, 21, and Miranda, 10, and two stepchildren, Nicholas and Natalie. 26

Two, basketball's Mike McConathy and soccer's Jimmy Mitchell, guided Northwestern in NCAA Tournament play in their second seasons and have been back to postseason since. NSU's 2006 basketball team scored one of the most memorable upsets in the history of March Madness, coming from 17 down to stun No. 15-ranked Iowa 64-63. Burke has selected head coaches who have subsequently been hired by Alabama, Florida, Missouri, New Mexico, Kentucky, Virginia, Mississippi State and Wichita State. 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. The NSU soccer program was the first one in Louisiana ever to reach the NCAA Tournament. Volleyball set attendance records and made its best-ever showings in conference play in recent years. In softball, NSU posted the nation's most improved win total in 2010 regular-season play under second-year coach Donald Pickett. The Lady Demons joined Stanford as the only women's tennis programs in the country in 2010 with only one regular-season loss, while sweeping Southland regular-season and tournament titles and making a first-ever NCAA Team Tournament appearance.

Athletic Administration Jody Biscoe Faculty Athletic Representative Faculty Athletic Representative Jody Biscoe is Associate Professor of Psychology and Addiction Studies at Northwestern State, where he is the coordinator for the undergraduate Addiction Studies, and Substance Abuse/Prevention concentrations. Since 2006, he has served as Faculty Athletic Representative for NSU. This role includes the chair of the NSU Athletic Council. Since 2006, Northwestern State University has made numerous paradigm shifts in how it addresses the needs of student-athletes; however, one thing has been consistent in that its student-athletes are winners on the field and in the classroom. All have heard about higher educational institutions being penalized by the NCAA for academic improprieties. NSU has attempted to be a model program of “Doing Things the Right Way,” by following the Athletic Department motto: Great Tradition – Brighter Futures. This past year, NSU was one of only four schools in the State of Louisiana that did not receive any penalties for low NCAA Academic Progress Rates (APR) with baseball, soccer, softball, tennis, women’s indoor & outdoor track, and volleyball rating in the top three in the Southland Conference. Among the 40 Northwestern State student-athletes and athletic staff members who graduated in spring 2010, 10 of the 20 receiving undergraduate degrees graduated either cum laude or magna cum laude. Graduation rates of student-athletes in soccer, volleyball, men’s basketball, baseball and football ranked in the top four of the Conference. These accomplishments could not have been achieved without the support and efforts of the student-athletes, coaches, faculty, and administration. Also, Jody is the Director for the Louisiana Addiction Technology Transfer Center at NSU. He has served on the National Addiction Technology Transfer Center's (ATTC) Practice and National Leadership Institute Committee. In addition, he has coordinated five nationally recognized leadership institutes for Louisiana, Texas and New Mexico and a member of the National ATTC Leadership Directors Committee. Recently, he was appointed to the NAADAC - National Addiction Studies & Standards Collaborative Committee. This past year, Jody was selected to serve on the United States Health and Human Services – Substance Abuse & Mental Health Service Administration Expert Panel concerning workforce issues. Jody's wife, Veronica (Roni), is an avid runner. Their 16-year-old daughter, Roxy, is a junior on the varsity cheerleading squad and Lady Tiger basketball team at St. Mary's High School. All are devoted Demon fans!

Dr. William Broussard Executive Director - NSU Athletic Association Associate AD for External Relations One of the most accomplished student-athletes ever at Northwestern State (see page 97), two-time football All-America center William Broussard returned to his alma mater in February 2007 as the Director of External Relations, coordinating fundraising activities through the Athletic Association and Demon Victory Fund. Known for his avid and tireless promotion of NSU Athletics, Broussard has represented the department as Associate Athletic Director of External Relations since 2007 and planned or helped organize hundreds of events to promote Demon Athletics. After re-branding the annual fund campaign the Demon Victory Fund (DVF) in 2007, the DVF enjoyed its most successful year up to that point. The 2008-09 DVF once again broke the annual record for total revenues, number of Athletic Association members, and Select 100 Members on the way to establishing a new benchmark for annual, unrestricted support of the NSU Athletic Department. Under Broussard’s guidance, the NSU Athletic Association has set four consecutive annual total attainment records, secured the largest scholarship endowment and largest planned gift in the history of NSU Athletics. In the 2009-10 year, the NSU Athletic Association established or tied several annual records under Broussard’s guidance, including annual records for total operating revenues, gift-in-kind donations, number of commitments to the Endowed Scholarship Program (9), and number of Select 100 members (197). Broussard also assisted in raising more than $100,000 in support for renovations to the Athletic Field House. Broussard represents Northwestern State as the Southland Conference representative of the National Association of Athletic Directors of Development (NAADD) and is also an Assistant Professor of Journalism at NSU. He is the author of essays and articles on the culture of college athletics and writes a bi-weekly sports editorial for local news magazine The Real Views. He is also the 2010 president of the Natchitoches Lions Club. Broussard is a 2000 graduate, with distinction, of the Louisiana Scholars’ College at Northwestern State University and a 2007 graduate of the University of Arizona, with his Ph.D. in Rhetoric and Composition. A native of Crowley, he is married to the former Kendra Peters, a Lady Demon volleyball player during the couple’s days at Northwestern.

Carrie Crowell Assistant Academic Advisor Carrie Crowell, a two-year Academic All-Southland Conference soccer standout for Northwestern State in 2005-06, from Arlington, TX, now serves as an academic coordinator in the Johnnie Emmons Athletic Study Center at NSU. Crowell served as an intern in the Academic Services and CHAMPS/Life Skills program in January 2009, while also completing her second season as a graduate assistant soccer coach and finishing work on her master's of science in sport administration. She was a magna cum laude graduate of NSU in August 2007 in business administration, and also was a key contributor on the Lady Demons' 2005 NCAA Tournament team that won the Southland Conference Tournament. Crowell is the academic coordinator for the sports of soccer, women's basketball, men's and women's track, volleyball, and freshman football. She also heads the Enhanced Academic Program which provides additional help for student-athletes and aids in maintaining a healthy and successful balance between academics and athletics.

2010 PRESEASON FIRST TEAM

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 the academic and athletic accomplishments of its member institutions. What began as a small gathering of college administrators more than 45 years ago, the Southland Conference has transformed itself into a dynamic and respected consortium of 12 member universities in three states. Beginning with a historic meeting of five institutions in Dallas on March 15, 1963, that included current members Lamar University (then Lamar State College of Technology) and the University of Texas at Arlington (then Arlington State College), the Southland Conference set on an extraordinary course that has proven successful well into its fifth decade of existence. On July 1, 2006, the Southland Conference commemorated another milestone as the league membership reached 12, marking the largest configuration ever for the organization. The addition of the University of Central Arkansas and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi expanded the Southland into the Little Rock metro area and into the eighth largest city in Texas. Central Arkansas and A&M-Corpus Christi enhanced the Southland Conference in innumerable ways, including athletic and academic successes, strong and principled leadership, and strong fan support and media coverage. In addition to its two newest members, the Southland Conference lineup also consists of Lamar University, McNeese State University, Nicholls State University, Northwestern State University, Sam Houston State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Stephen F. Austin State University, the University of Texas at Arlington, the University of Texas at San Antonio, and Texas State University-San Marcos. All told, the revised membership of the Southland encompasses more than 180,000 current students and an alumni base of approximately 920,000. Famous alums from Southland Conference schools include former President Lyndon B. Johnson (Texas State), former CBS news anchor Dan Rather (Sam Houston State), retired U.S. Central Command General Tommy Franks (UT Arlington), NBA executive Joe Dumars (McNeese State), ABC news anchor Robin Roberts (Southeastern Louisiana), country music star George Strait (Texas State), Major League Baseball stars Hunter Pence (UT Arlington), Kevin Millar (Lamar) and Ben Broussard (McNeese State), NBA legend Scottie Pippen (Central Arkansas) and actor Lou Diamond Phillips (UT Arlington). The cities of the Southland are diverse and progressive, ranging from international business and cultural centers such as the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, San Antonio and the New Orleans area, to the historical cities of Nacogdoches, Texas, and Natchitoches, La., to the home of the modern oil boom, Beaumont, Texas, to the unique Cajun French cultures found in the Louisiana cities of Thibodaux and Lake Charles. Southland Conference institutions also draw large numbers of students from the metropolitan areas of Houston, Little Rock, Baton Rouge, Austin, and Shreveport. The Southland sponsors 17 championship sports, all at the NCAA Division I level. 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.Southland Conference football ranks among the best Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) leagues in the nation, and enjoys an annual expectation of competing for the national championship with multiple teams advancing to the NCAA playoffs each year. In 2002 and 2003, McNeese State finished the regular season ranked No. 1 in the nation, and advanced to the 2002 national championship contest, the sixth such title game appearance since the league joined FCS in 1982. All told, Southland teams have played in 89 Division I playoff games in 27 years, winning 42 of the contests.
