2012 Media Guide

Experienced Demons on the Hunt for Southland Title, Playoff Berth

Preseason Depth Chart

College football requires intense, year-round work by players and coaches, culminated by a week (or more) of preparation for 11 game days that, if handled properly, pave the way for more chances to play. Likewise, for some of Louisiana’s more famous citizens, there’s a lot of preparation leading up to a relatively short season. After spending the other 11 months scouting, for just 30 days each year, Troy and Jacob Landry prowl the marshes and wetlands of the Atchafalaya Swamp, trying to exhaust their supply of state-issued tags during alligator season. Troy’s feverish trademark command “Choot ‘em!” is nationally celebrated by the vast audience of the History Channel’s hit series “Swamp People,” now in its third season. The Landrys visited Natchitoches last December for the always spectacular Natchitoches Christmas Festival, and crossed paths with several from the Northwestern State football program, including quarterback Brad Henderson, head coach Bradley Dale Peveto and offensive coordinator and associate head coach Todd Cooley. There was common ground discussed, mutual admiration expressed. The Landrys, and the Demons, are looking for their best season yet in 2012. With lots of proven experience on hand, there’s reason for optimism. Henderson will play a pivotal role as the triggerman for the NSU football team, along with two-time AllAmerica linebacker Derek Rose and NFL Draft prospect Jamaal White, as focal figures in Peveto’s fourth season as head coach. Rose, on the Buck Buchanan Award watch list for the second straight year, has displayed a knack for gamechanging plays all over the field and especially in the red zone. He has stacked up 220 tackles in the last two seasons. White, an acrobatic and big-hitting safety, hopes to significantly add to his seven-interception total over the past two years after being listed as one of 10 FCS Defensive Backs to Watch by The Sports Network. They will spearhead a Purple Swarm defense which will be strong at the back with White and fellow safeties Bert White, Brashard Booker, along with crafty veteran nickelback Cortez Paige and a shooting star from spring Senior LB Derek Rose is looking to the second football player in ball, Calvin Morton, who has flashed in the fall previously. become NSU history to be an All-American three Up front, nose tackle Lesley Deamer emerged last times. year as one of the Southland’s better interior players, while Anthony Gilbert is a rising senior after a breakout junior campaign.

2012 SEASON OUTLOOK

Northwestern State Demons

tutored by Peveto. Calling the defensive signals will be first-year coordinator Gary DeLoach, who has been in that role for three decades, including highly successful stretches at Stephen F. Austin (where he gave Peveto his first full-time coaching post) and North Texas. The Demons’ special teams play was noteworthy last year and the stars are back for their senior seasons in 2012: honorable mention All-America kicker John Shaughnessy, explosive kickoff return specialist Phillip Harvey, and highly efficient punter/YouTube personality Nic Russo. Special teams coordinator Brendan Farrell drew praise from LSU’s Les Miles, no special teams slouch himself, last season for the performance of the Demons in that phase of the game. Shaughnessy will carry a school record of 12 straight made field goals into the season, finishing the season 14 of 16. The first-team All-Southland performer also is noted for the height and accuracy of his kickoffs, which has helped the Demons defend kickoffs as well as anyone in the league. Harvey and Henderson are at the forefront of Cooley’s plans. Henderson earned the Demons’ respect before the first play of his first season as a junior college transfer, and in the first game, he came off the bench to earn a spot in the NSU record book with 13 consecutive completions as he sparked a comeback win over Delta State. He started the remaining 10 Phillip Harvey looks to be a prime target games and set school records for pass- for quarterback Brad Henderson ing aim (61.6 percent) and completions (178-289) while posting the fifth-best season pass yardage total (1,853) and the sixth-ranked total offense (2,057) yardage haul. Harvey is on the verge of becoming NSU’s career kickoff return leader, and is averaging 23.7 yards per return in three seasons. He’s taken it long distance to the house as a runner (45 yards last year vs. Texas State), returner (99 yards last year vs. Southeastern Louisiana) and as a receiver (66 yards in 2010 vs. Stephen F. Austin) and had his best spring in 2012, issuing notice he’s ready to shine this fall. The addition of offensive line coach Allen Rudolph, the former of-

fensive coordinator and O-line coach at conference rival Southeastern, has resulted in significant change up front. The Demons should have depth and good competition for the first time in 6-7 seasons, even with two-year starting guard Destry Hesskew shifting to his original position, defensive tackle. Four transfers are among the top 10 linemen on the depth chart entering preseason camp. Four players who started at least twice in 2011 return, including both starting tackles, Blayne Cole and Tchissakid Player, who will man the right post in 2012. Isaac Puapauga dropped 20 pounds and moved into the starting slot at right guard after starting twice last fall. Returning all-conference selecJohn Shaughnessy looks to continue his school record 12 consecutive made FGs tion Larry Calcote, who has started since his freshman season, is an anchor at left guard and was a spring stalwart. Center Caleb Stanfield has turned heads and earned the No. 1 center’s role in spring ball with toughness, execution and grit. Transfer Warren Jones helped East Mississippi CC to national junior college championship. All-America tight end Justin Aldredge graduated, but his understudies have experience. Tucker Nims steps up to the No. 1 spot. Chris Dever proved explosive in his true freshman year. Outside, Harvey has plenty of company. Louis Hollier has been productive for two seasons. Clifton Brown developed nicely in spring ball, showing playmaking ability. Oklahoma transfer Sheldon McClain, a Hurricane Katrina victim now back home, is an intriguing addition. Trevor Goodie stepped into a significant role last year. The wild card could be highly-regarded redshirt freshman Rod Davis. Behind Henderson, sophomore Don Canyon has a command of the offense and has slimmed down by 20 pounds while increasing his arm strength on already-accurate throws. Sophomore Keenon Gibson and redshirt freshman Grant Chiasson could get spot duty in Cooley’s multiple sets and are capable backups. Two-year starter Brant Legendre holds down the fullback slot, giving the Demons a pair of soft hands and stout run and pass blocking. Junior transfer Rob Walker zoomed into the No. 1 tailback slot after spring ball, ahead of proven veterans Sidney Riley and Rumeall Morris. Even with last year’s leading rusher, D.J. Palmer, sitting out the 2012 season, there’s ample talent on hand at tailback, and ample reason to expect a breakout season for the Demon offense with improved team speed and a fast tempo and relentless effort.

DEMON COACHING STAFF

Northwestern State Demons

Bradley Dale Peveto Head Coach SMU, 1986 • 7th Season at NSU • 4th as Head Coach He’s a captain of enthusiasm. He’s a human energy burst. He’s a passionate leader. He’s a documented coaching whiz on defense and special teams. He’s all in, for the long haul. And he’s going to do it the right way. Those qualities have all been evident from the time Bradley Dale Peveto strode to the podium in front of 250 people on Dec. 22, 2008 to shake the hand of Northwestern State director of athletics Greg Burke before making his first remarks as the Demons’ head football coach. He’s known as “Coach Peve” to many - “Big Daddy Peve” to others - and is a fast-bonding friend to anyone who crosses his path. A pair of Texas couples visiting Natchitoches encountered him at lunch in a local restaurant. They came away feeling they had met the local Chamber of Commerce president, so detailed and effusive were his tips on places to visit, things to do and dining recommendations. That personality has contributed to a long-recognized knack for recruiting. It’s been borne out at NSU both with players and coaches. The Demons’ 2009 signing class, put together in six weeks after Peveto was hired, was ranked No. 1 in FCS by Rivals.com experts. The 2010 class was rated No. 4 nationally among FCS schools in the Rivals.com rankings the day after National Signing Day. In 2011, apparently resulting from complaints by FBS programs, Rivals.com stopped ranking FCS signing classes - but Peveto and staff didn’t stop signing highly-recruited prospects. Looking through his coaching staff, Peveto has blended accomplished NSU assistants with top-quality newcomers to Natchitoches such as former UCLA and Texas A&M assistant Gary DeLoach, former Southeastern Louisiana offensive coordinator Allen Rudolph and former Central Arkansas offensive coordinator Todd Cooley. His staff has followed his lead and is very active and visible in the community and with NSU alumni and supporters. Peveto is a former LSU co-defensive coordinator whose highly-successful 24-year college football coaching career includes the Tigers’ 2007 BCS national championship and Northwestern State’s FCS semifinal playoff season of 1998. Along with his head coaching duties, Peveto is the Demons’ linebackers coach. His expertise is undeniable. Senior Derek Rose has been an All-America selection in 2010 and 2011, with Peveto’s guidance undoubtedly speeding his progression. Peveto’s development of players at that position was critical to the success of the LSU Tiger defense that ranked among the top five in the nation in 2005-07. In 2007, linebacker Ali Highsmith earned first-team All-America honors from CBSsports.com, while also being named a second-team All-American by the Associated Press. Highsmith earned first-team All-SEC honors in 2006, while junior Darry Beckwith was a second-team All-SEC pick. While coaching a position keeps Peveto engaged with the defense and gives him good perspective, he hangs his hat just as much on developing the character of his players and emphasizing academics. Not a day passes without an inspirational message. Daily Great Tradition • Brighter Future

2012 Media Guide

The Bradley Dale Peveto File in preseason camp and regularly throughout the year, the Demons go through “Character Education” sessions with speakers providing advice on life and the pursuit of excellence. His focus on academic achievement is relentless. That showed up right away and was Years at NSU: Seventh (3rd since 1998) reflected in NSU posting one of the most improved Academic Progress Rate scores among Birthdate: Dec. 28, 1962 (Beaumont, Texas) any FCS football program in his first year, 2009-10. That 42 percent jump was reported in Wife: Melissa Payton, Jake the May 2011 APR release by the NCAA and ranked seventh among the 117 FCS programs Children: High School: Orangefield (Texas) in Division I. SMU ‘87 Peveto is the 13th head coach in the 102-year history of intercollegiate football at College: Northwestern. He was defensive coordinator for the Demons from 1996-98 under the Playing Experience school’s winningest head coach, Sam Goodwin. SMU (defensive back) Northwestern won the Southland Conference championship and reached the FCS play- 1982-86 offs in 1997 and 1998, going 12-2 in the SLC and 19-7 overall in those seasons. The 1998 team, outright SLC champions, finished with a No. 3 national ranking after reaching No. 2 at the outset of the national playoffs, hosting three postseason games in Turpin Stadium before a fourth-quarter rally by eventual national champion Massachusetts halted the 11-3 Demons in a semifinal game. The 1997 Demons shared the SLC title by winning six straight games after a 2-3 start, capping the run with a stirring 38-21 homefield triumph over rival Stephen F. Austin, denying the Lumberjacks a co-championship and a postseason berth. Peveto has also been defensive coordinator at Middle Tennessee State and Houston, where he was also assistant head coach in 2002. He has also been part of coaching staffs at Arkansas, Southern Mississippi, Stephen F. Austin and Trinity Valley Community College. The Orangefield, Texas, native played in four bowl games from 1982-86 at SMU, where he was a safety, special teams star and team captain while the Mustangs went 43-14. With Peveto on the sidelines as co-coordinator and linebackers coach in 2008, LSU’s defense ranked 17th in the nation in rushing defense (110 ypg) and 32nd in total defense (326 ypg). In his three previous years with LSU, Peveto held a dual role, serving as the special teams coordinator and coaching the Tiger linebackers. As LSU’s special teams coordinator, Peveto had both his punter (Patrick Fisher) and placekicker (Colt David) earn first-team All-SEC honors in 2007. It marked the first time in school history that LSU had the All-SEC punter and kicker on its roster in the same season. Fisher averaged a league-best 44.5 yards per punt in 2007, while David kicked a school-record 26 field goals and led the SEC in scoring with a league record 147 total points. In his three years as LSU’s special teams coordinator, the Tigers returned two punts for touchdowns and a pair of kickoffs for a score. They also blocked six kicks, converted 49-of-71 field goals and 165-of-167 extra points. In 2005, Peveto’s impact was immediate as the Tigers fielded some of the best special teams units in the country. LSU ranked first in the SEC and fifth in the nation in net punting (39.0 average). The Tigers were also first in the conference in kickoff coverage (45.5 net average) and second in the league and 12th nationally in punt return average (14.1).

Four of his players earned All-America honors. In addition, four Demon players were selected in the NFL draft, three after the 1998 season, including current Washington Redskins safety Mike Green. Under his direction, the Demon defense also set single-game records for fewest yards allowed, fewest rushing yards allowed, and most quarterback sacks. NSU also set school season records for most defensive touchdowns scored. In addition, the “Purple Swarm” also set season records for quarterback sacks in two of his three seasons, accumulating 52 in 1998 and 122 in the last three years.

FCS TITLE GAME

Northwestern State Demons

FCS Championship Game The NCAA Division I Football Championship Committee has announced that the 2013 NCAA Division I Football Championship Game will be played at noon, CT, on Saturday, Jan. 5 at FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco, Texas. A sellout crowd of 20,586 attended last year’s game, which was won 17-6 by North Dakota State over Sam Houston State. This was the first year of the game being played on Saturday after historically being played on a Friday night, including 2011 in Frisco. Eastern Washington defeated Delaware 20-19 in that game, which was the first of three scheduled championship games in Frisco. The championship game will again be hosted by the locally based Southland Conference, the City of Frisco and the Hunt Sports Group.

2010 Champs Eastern Washington (left) and 2011 victors North Dakota State (right) each took home the trophy from a title game that was played in Frisco and hosted by the Southland Conference.

The Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) is comprised of the conferences and institutions that compete in the NCAA Division I Football Championship - Big Sky, Big South, Colonial Athletic Association, Ivy League, Mid-Eastern Athletic, Missouri Valley Football, Northeast, Ohio Valley, Patriot League, Pioneer, Southern, Southland and the Southwestern Athletic. The Ivy League and Southwestern Athletic Conference choose not to participate in the football championship. The FCS embodies a tradition of excellence through high level competition, student-athlete character and sportsmanship throughout the regular season and the championship experience. Tickets for the 2013 championship game will go on sale later this summer. The game will be televised by ESPN2 HD.

Robert Crew 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 campuswide 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 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 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.

UNIVERSITY ADMINISTRATION

Jerry Pierce

Northwestern State Demons

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 48th 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 22nd 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 NSU Athletic Council as vice president, he oversees university operations in athletics, alumni and development, public and media relations and assists Jody Biscoe (Chair) President Dr. Randall J.Webb in governmental affairs activities. Lyn Christopher Many of those duties were his since the 1970s as he worked Dwight Epperson under four previous presidents as Northwestern advanced from Kelee Grimes NAIA to NCAA College Division to NCAA Division I athletic Marcus Jones status in 1977. Jennifer Kelly A 1961 graduate of Northwestern, Pierce served as trainer for the Demon football team during his college years, workMelissa Kelly ing closely with legendary coach Jack Clayton. After earning Natalie Laurence Tara McKenney (Student) his journalism degree, Pierce went to work for the New Orleans Times Picayune, serving as a reporter and editor. He was Dr. Charles Pellegrin named executive sports editor at the age of 24. Dr. Pat Pierson In 1965, he chose to raise his two sons in Natchitoches and Kristi Simms returned to NSU as sports information director. He was proDr. Mark Swanstrom moted to news bureau director two years later and assumed additional responsibilities in athletics, alumni affairs and other Ed Ward areas through the years. Will Watson (Student) He founded, in 1972, the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame facilDr. Randall Webb ity in Prather Coliseum on the NSU campus, providing a home for an entity created in 1958. He established annual induction Ex-Officio Members activities that remain in place nearly four decades later, and Greg Burke served as director of the Hall for 19 years until his promotion Carrie Crowell to vice president forced him to step aside from the volunteer Dustin Eubanks post. He helped guide Northwestern into three athletic conferRoxanne Freeman ences (Trans America, 1979; Gulf Star, 1983; Southland, 1987) Dr. Patrice Moulton and NCAA Division I status in 1977. He is a past president of Dr. Vicki Parrish the Southland and has served the conference through other ofJerry Pierce fices 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 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, 22, and Miranda, 11, and two stepchildren, Nicholas and Natalie.

Greg Burke

Director of Athletics The Burke File

AGE: 55 (Born Oct. 22, 1956) • HOMETOWN: Alliance, Ohio • HIGH SCHOOL: Marlington ’74 • COLLEGE: Mt. Union ’78 (cum laude) POSTGRADUATE: Kent State ’86 • BEFORE HE WAS A.D.: Sports writer, Alliance (Ohio) Review, 1972-78; director of news and sports information, Hiram (Ohio) College (1978-85); administrative intern, NSU athletics, 1985-86; director, NSU Athletic Association, 1986-92; director of athletic development, University of Akron, 1992-96. BIG FAN OF: Cleveland Browns, Indians and Cavaliers • INTERESTS: Working out, watching ESPN and VH1 Classic, family outings.

At the outset of his 17th 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 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. 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).  He was also among four winners chosen to be involved in a Street and Smith’s SportsBusiness Journal panel discussion on current Division I athletics issues. Joining NSU’s Burke were Purdue’s Morgan Burke (no relation), Samford’s Bob Roller and Lee Fowler of North Carolina State, with the transcript of their discussion distributed to national media by the Sports Business Daily.  Burke just completed a term as the 2010-11 president of the Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association. Burke’s 16 years as athletic director include 32 Southland Conference regular-season or tournament championships, 54 All-American and Academic All-American student athletes, and three U.S. Olympic competitors. Seventeen NSU teams have taken part in NCAA or WNIT postseason competition. Under his guidance, Northwestern State has led all 13 public institutions in Louisiana, and all 12 Southland Conference institutions, in the NCAA’s Academic Progress Rate and Graduation Success Rate reports. The school’s athletic facilities have undergone nearly $7 million in improvements in the past four years. 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 generated a $2 million series of sponsorships for new scoreboards installed for 2008-09 at all NSU athletic venues and spearheaded the $700,000 Second Century Circle fencing project for athletic venues.  Burke has displayed a remarkable ability to hire dynamic head coaches, including several whose success at Northwestern State has 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. The NSU soccer program was the first one in Louisiana ever to reach the NCAA Tournament and remains the only one with multiple appearances. Volleyball set attendance records and has 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, and moved among league contenders in 2011. 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. While on-field success by Demon and Lady Demon teams has been a source of pride for NSU supporters, Burke is equally proud of the tone which has been set within the NSU athletic program as it relates to 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 remained at that level in 2010-11. 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. In June 2006, he was a featured speaker and panelist at the National Association of Collegiate Athletic Directors convention in New Orleans, addressing members of the College Athletic Business Managers of America and also participating in a panel discussion of “Fundraising from an Athletic Director’s Perspective” speaking to the National Association of Athletic Development Directors. Since 2007, Burke has been a member of the prestigious NCAA Championships/Sports Management Cabinet, a 49-person panel which makes recommendations to the NCAA Board of Directors on key issues facing Division I athletics. 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. Since his committee term expired, 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.             In 2004 and 2011, NSU received the highest possible rating, “fully certified,” from the National Collegiate Athletic Association, affirming that Northwestern operates its athletic program in substantial conformity with operating principles adopted by the NCAA Division I membership. 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. He and his wife, Susu, is a Natchitoches native, NSU graduate and an elementary teacher. Their 18-year-old daughter, Catherine, graduated from St. Mary’s High School in May of 2012 and will attend Louisiana Tech.

Courageous comback carries Demons to victory

Second-ranked LSU looks first rate

pleting a school record 13 straight passes to spark a huge second-half rally from a 17-point deficit as Northwestern State prevailed 24-23 over Division II power Delta State on Sept. 1 at Turpin Stadium. Henderson replaced starter Paul Harris and guided the Demons (1-0) back from a 17-0 halftime deficit with 24 unanswered points, scoring on four of their first five possessions after halftime and fumbling away another chance inside the visitors’ 30. Delta State (1-1), last year’s Division II runner-up and No. 2 in the division this season, missed a chance to win the game with 10 seconds left on a failed two-point conversion pass. Northwestern won its 499th all-time game with its second-biggest rally since moving into Division I in 1977, topped only by a second-half rally from a 23-0 deficit to win 27-23 in the 2005 opener at Louisiana-Monroe. Henderson completed his first 13 passes, including a 32-yard touchdown to senior tight end Justin Aldredge less than two minutes into the second half to get NSU on the board. The Demons drew within 17-14 on a 10-play, 61-yard drive capped by a 2-yard Sterling Endsley run, and took the lead on a 3-yard Endsley run set up by a Cashas Pollard interception at the Statesmen’s 41-yard line.

The Demons dipped to 1-1 after losing their first matchup with LSU since 1942, with a first-ever contest at SMU ahead next Saturday night. The Tigers went 2-0 heading into their Southeastern Conference opener next Thursday at Mississippi State. The home opener throng at Tiger Stadium, including well over 4,000 NSU fans, was the largest crowd to watch a Northwestern football game, surpassing the previous high of 86,520 at Georgia’s Sanford Stadium in 2002. In that game, the No. 4-ranked Bulldogs dumped the Demons 45-7, and that NSU team went on to reach the FCS playoffs. LSU went to 11-0 all-time against Northwestern but gave up points for the first time ever. John Shaughnessy drilled a 44-yard field goal one minute into the second quarter to draw the Demons within 7-3 and ultimately become a historic footnote. The Tigers’ defense overwhelmed the Demons afterward as the outcome was resolved. LSU held Northwestern to only 95 total yards and just six first downs on 56 snaps.

Northwestern State Nicholls State

Sept. 17 2012 • Ford Stadium • Dallas, TX • 20,083 SMU overwhelms Demons 40-7 Northwestern State coach Bradley Dale Peveto was impressed with his alma mater’s football team on Sept. 17. Trouble is, his Demons were playing against that team, and the SMU Mustangs dominated as running back Zach Line ran for a school-record five touchdowns in a 40-7 victory at Ford Stadium. SMU (2-1) corralled the Demons (1-2), holding them without an offensive score and to only 126 total yards. The Mustangs rolled up 530 offensive yards, 416 on 26 completions, and scored on five of their first six possessions to post a 26-0 halftime lead. Line (16 carries, 85 yards rushing) found the end zone on runs of 1, 4, 9, 16 and 5 yards to top an SMU scoring record by 11 players including Eric Dickerson and 1948 Heisman Trophy winner Doak Walker. The other Mustangs points came from field goals of 29 and 27 yards from Chase Hover, attoning for a miss on the first extra point of the night. The Demons’ defense played tough near the goalline to force the short field goals by Hover, and that effort produced NSU’s only points – a schoolrecord 93-yard fumble return with 1:41 remaining by senior safety Phil LeBlanc. Northwestern had only one turnover and was penalized only three times. Along with LeBlanc’s fumble return, junior safety Jamaal White had two interceptions, returning them for a combined 91 yards.

Northwestern State Demons

SLC Champions- 1988 • 1997 • 1998 • 2004

The 500th victory in Northwestern State football history had little mystery on Sept. 24 as the visiting Demons dashed to a three-touchdown first quarter lead behind quarterback Brad Henderson on the way to NSU’s first shutout triumph in 53 games, 34-0 over Nicholls. It was a regionally-televised Southland Conference opener for both teams. Northwestern (2-2 overall) followed losses at LSU and SMU with a dominating performance, outgaining Nicholls (1-3) by 396-212. Henderson had TD throws of 9, 2 and 48 yards in the opening period while finishing 13 of 19 for 187 yards, and adding 44 yards rushing. The triumph moved the Demons to 500-418-22 in 102 seasons since their first intercollegiate game in 1907. A goalline stand late in the first half, with the Demons stopping the Colonels at the 3, preserved the first shutout for Northwestern since a 9-0 victory at Nicholls in 2006. Northwestern converted short fields for scoring drives of 48, 44 and 41 yards, blending an explosive running game with effective passing, keeping the Colonels on their heels with play action. The balance was reflected in 114 rushing yards and 116 in the air at halftime. Nicholls had only 104 total yards, most of that on a 69-yard drive behind backup quarterback Beaux Hebert, who entered the contest for an ineffective LaQuintin Caston. Hebert guided the Colonels down to the 3 where a fourthand-1 was slammed shut on a tackle for no gain by the Demons’ defensive interior, with the stop credited to All-America linebacker Derek Rose.

Demoms fall 20-18 to Cowboys

Second-quarter spark jolts Demons by Cardinals

turn touchdown with 14 minutes remaining on Oct. 1, and a pair of failed two-point conversion tries by Northwestern State, made the difference in the visiting Cowboys’ 20-18 Southland Conference football victory over the Demons. Narcisse batted the ball into the air just past the line of scrimmage, caught it and dashed down the left side to score with 14:07 left, moving McNeese ahead 20-12 after Josh Lewis’ conversion kick. The Demons responded quickly, on a 5-yard run by Sidney Riley with 11:42 remaining, but their second two-point attempt of the game failed. The game ended with the Demons unable to convert a 47-yard Hail Mary pass on the final play, with the ball bounding upward in the end zone but falling to the turf. McNeese (3-1 overall, 2-0 in the Southland Conference, ranked No. 15 in the FCS Coaches’ Top 25 and 18th in the Sports Network FCS Top 25) beat Northwestern (2-3, 1-1) for the seventh straight year. The Demons missed a first-half two-point try on a pass by kicker John Shaughnessy that was tipped away by a diving McNeese safety, Malcom Bronson. Northwestern led 9-6 at that point 9:03 before halftime, and added a 22-yard Shaughnessy field goal to go ahead 12-6 with 6:52 left after an interception by defensive tackle Anthony Gilbert at the Cowboys 9.

for a short period in a 37-17 Southland Conference football on Oct. 8. Northwestern kicked into gear with a 20-point second quarter, scoring three touchdowns in the final 10 minutes before halftime. The Demons had 200 yards in the second period alone and a 27-7 halftime advantage. That burst contained the greatest jolts in an elegantly efficient 290-yard, three touchdowns, and 26 of 34 with no interceptions passing performance by Brad Henderson, and effectively carried NSU to a 2-1 league record and a 3-3 overall worksheet heading into this Saturday night’s homecoming game against Southeastern Louisiana in Turpin Stadium. Lamar, which rallied past SLU 4838 on the road a week earlier, dipped to 3-2 overall and 1-1 in the conference. The start of the game was delayed for 90 minutes due to the power outage and the stall continued in a first quarter with 120 combined yards, 71 by the visiting Demons. But NSU rode Henderson’s arm and an explosive running game into a commanding lead, then held off a second-half comeback bid by the Cardinals, clinching the outcome with a wonderfully-run 54-yard screen pass and run by sophomore tailback D.J. Palmer into a blitzing Lamar defense on third-and-10 with 3:20 remaining. Sidney Riley had two of the Demons’ four first-half TDs, on runs of 1 and 5 yards bookending two Henderson scoring passes, 5 yards to Trevor Goodie and 19 to Phillip Harvey. NSU got its last two tallies in the final four minutes of the opening half.

Oct. 15 2012 • Turpin Stadium • Natchitoches, LA • 10,285 Demons roast Lions for Homecoming in blowout

Oct. 29 2012 • Bobcat Stadium • San Marcos,TX • 14,473 Gritty Demons hold off Bobcats in road win

With Lamont Simmons’ 24-yard fumble return and a 99-yard kick- off return by Phillip Harvey, Northwestern State scored the first time it touched the ball in both halves on Oct. 15 while smashing old rival Southeastern Louisiana 51-17 in Southland Conference football. Simmons scooped up the fumble and scored on the game’s first play. Harvey took the second half kickoff back for a touchdown, lifting NSU up 34-3, on the way to tying a school record for kickoff return yardage (193 yards on three attempts). The Demons, heading into an open date and celebrating homecoming in front of 10,285 at Turpin Stadium, led 17-0 less than five minutes into the contest and 27-3 after the first quarter. They won their second straight, improving to 4-3 overall and 3-1 in the conference, while the Lions (1-5, 0-3) fell for the fourth straight time. Northwestern cracked the 50-point barrier in a Southland game for the first time since routing Sam Houston State 59-3 in 1998. It was the highest point total by the Demons since a 63-12 romp over Division II Southeast Oklahoma in 2008 and the most points against a Division I team since 2004 and a 52-6 romp over Texas Southern. Northwestern got its first career 100-yard rushing game from sophomore D.J. Palmer, whose 15 for 102 yards output included an 82-yard touchdown just 4:25 into the contest for a 17-0 lead.

Northwestern State Demons

SLC Champions- 1988 • 1997 • 1998 • 2004

The Northwestern State Demons weren’t at their best the afternoon of Oct. 29, until they had to be. Then they came through with flying colors, recovering two fumbles in the red zone before a previously-stymied offensive unit mounted an 80-yard drive capped by Justin Aldredge’s clinching 33-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter of a gritty 23-10 non-conference football victory at Texas State. NSU (5-3 overall) came off an open date and handed former Southland Conference rival Texas State (5-4) its first homefield loss under coach Dennis Franchione, the former TCU, Alabama and Texas A&M coach in his first year in San Marcos. Northwestern got fumble recoveries at the 12 by Wade Williams, after Lamont Simmons knocked the ball loose, and at the 4 by Ricky Isaac after a big hit by All-America linebacker Derek Rose to preserve a precarious 17-10 lead coming down the stretch. The Demons never trailed but after dominating the first quarter for a 14-0 lead, they spent the rest of the day holding the Bobcats at bay. Texas State’s frustrations included three missed field goals (46, 42 and 36 yards) by true freshman Will Johnson, and losing the ball on downs at the NSU 13 with 3:31 to go. The Bobcats outgained NSU 330-290 as their unconventional triple-option attack carved out 247 yards rushing on a defense allowing only 125 per game.

Nov. 5 2012 • Turpin Stadium • Natchitoches, LA • 9,156 Second half eruption by Bears dooms Demons

Ignited by a 20-yard fumble return for a go-ahead touchdown on the second half kickoff, nationally-ranked Central Arkansas erupted to post a resounding 45-20 Southland Conference road victory over Northwestern State in a showdown for second place in the league standings on Nov. 5. UCA (7-3 overall, 6-1 in the Southland) outscored Northwestern (5-4, 3-2) 35-0 after halftime, beginning with Al Lasker’s touchdown return. After being outgained 232-130 but hanging within 20-14 at halftime, the 25th-ranked Bears posted a telling 134-3 yardage advantage in the pivotal third quarter before 9,156 at NSU’s Turpin Stadium. On the second-half kickoff, NSU’s Jeremy Lane returned the ball to the 25 before a gang of UCA tacklers met him, dragging him back near the 20. Lasker stripped the ball loose as Lane was going to the ground, scooped it up and ran 20 yards for a stunning score which pushed the Bears up 21-20 just 14 seconds into the third period. Central Arkansas took control with its next possession, driving 73 yards on seven plays and scoring on a 25-yard Dominique Croom catch and run from Nathan Dick on fourth-and-6 for a 28-20 advantage. While the Demons were stymied offensively, the Bears pounded out another 73-yard march on nine snaps, the final one on third-and-goal at the 1 when Dick found Thomas Hart open across the field for a touchdown with 2:40 left in the third period to open a 35-20 lead. UCA picked up a 25-yard Eddie Carmona field goal on its next possession and added a 55-yard interception return for a score with 42 seconds left to play by Marcus Peters.

Nov.12 2012 • Bowers Stadium • Huntsville,TX • 6,643 Bearkats whip Demons, capture outright title

Third-ranked and unbeaten, Sam Houston State looked every bit the part of the Southland Conference’s outright football champion Nov. 12 while whipping visiting Northwestern State 43-17. Tim Flanders and Richard Sincere each scored two touchdowns while Brian Bell threw for a pair of scores for the Bearkats. Meanwhile, the Demons’ offense couldn’t find the end zone against a speedy Sam Houston defense until D.J. Palmer rammed 1 yard to score with 5:11 remaining. That tally provided the second of two positive footnotes for NSU. The Demons’ 17 points are the second-most allowed by Sam Houston, who has held all of their other eight FCS foes to 14 points or less, and all but one to just one TD. Three of the Demons’ total came from junior kicker John Shaughnessy, who extended his school record for consecutive field goals made to 12 with a 34-yarder midway through the third period. The outcome dropped NSU to 5-5 overall, 3-3 in the SLC, hoping to post a winning season next Saturday afternoon at home against old rival Stephen F. Austin. The Bearkats claimed their first outright Southland football title in 24 years of conference membership while rising to 10-0 overall and completing their league slate at 7-0. They play a non-conference game at Texas State next week, then await their FCS playoff assignment, likely a first-round bye into a home game. Even though the Demons recovered two fumbles, they couldn’t slow down Sam Houston’s running game. Flanders became the first back to run for 100 yards against NSU with 145 on 20 carries, and his teammates added 98 more on the ground. Bell threw for 200 yards on 10 of 14 aim. Sincere caught three passes for 102 yards and ran for 75 more on 11 tries.

Stephen F. Austin Northwestern State

33 0

Nov. 19 2012 • Turpin Stadium • Natchitoches, LA • 4,563 SFA defense overwhelms Demons

Stephen F. Austin embellished its No. 1 national ranking in sacks and tackles for loss Nov. 19, holding Northwestern State to 100 total yards and pulling away by scoring on its first four series after halftime for a 33-0 season-ending Southland Conference football win. The Lumberjacks led just 7-0 at halftime but took command by scoring on its next four possessions, posting 17 third-quarter points while holding the Demons to a net of 6 yards in the period. The outcome gave SFA its fifth straight win and kept the visiting Lumberjacks in possession of sports’ largest trophy, “Chief Caddo,” a 7-foot-6, 320-pound wooden statue of a mythical Native American that pays homage to the shared heritage of the two universities. The Demons lost their third straight while posting their lowest total offense in a Southland Conference game since joining the league in 1987. It was the first shutout in the 87-year-old rivalry since a 52-0 Northwestern win in 1991, and SFA’s first shutout of the Demons since a 10-0 victory in 1963. With unbeaten Sam Houston State poised to move into the No. 1 ranking in FCS after last week’s No. 1, Montana State, was drubbed Saturday, the Demons will have played against the No. 1 team in the three largest NCAA classifications. LSU whipped NSU 49-3 on Sept. 10, Sam Houston State beat the Demons 43-17 last week, and Delta State, which reached No. 1 in the Division II rankings, opened the season falling 24-23 to NSU. SFA entered the game with FCS-best averages of 3.9 sacks and 9.5 tackles for loss per contest, and in its four wins before NSU, averaged 7.25 sacks.The Lumberjacks posted 8 sacks and 16 tackles for lost yards against the Demons, giving up a net of 6 rushing yards while throwing Demons’ quarterback Brad Henderson for 58 lost yards. A 42-yard touchdown strike between quarterback Brady Attaway and Cordell Roberson 11:35 before halftime broke a scoreless tie. SFA drove for touchdowns on its first two series after halftime, then added two short Jordan Wiggs field goals to clinch the outcome before a closing 10-yard pass from Dalton Williams to Ryan Gambel with 4:57 remaining.The Lumberjacks failed on a two-point conversion pass following their final touchdown. Game Captains: Brad Henderson, Derek Rose, Nic Russo Players of the Game: Offense - D.J. Palmer; Defense - Jamaal White; ST - Phillip Harvey & John Shaughnessy Scout Team Players of the Week: Justin Evans, Rakheem Mitchell, Luke Turner Big Stick: Chris Dever and Jamaal White

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.

Hired June 9, 2000 to succeed the retiring Sam Goodwin, Roberts posted two straight winning seasons and steered the 2001 Demons to the Division I-AA playoffs. Last-minute wins in 2000 at LouisianaLafayette and against McNeese State, and an overtime victory at bowl-bound TCU in 2001, highlighted his tenure. Roberts was 2-0 against instate rival Southern while at NSU.

2002-2008 43-28-0(.530), 7 seasons

Two FCS Division playoff appearances in his seven seasons, highly regarded recruiting classes and record-breaking performances were among the highlights in Scott Stoker’s tenure as head coach at his alma mater. The Demons were nationally ranked four seasons and the Purple Swarm defense has finished rated 15th, 9th and 3rd, respectively, while leading the SLC in 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2006. 319 Total Points

Demon Football Traditions Demons in the NFL Draft

There have been 34 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). Offensive lineman Demetrius Bell was the latest Demon taken in the draft - selected in the 7th round by the Buffalo Bills in the 2008 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

nsudemons.com

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 Demons

FOOTBALL TRADITIONS

Northwestern State Demons

The Ole Redhead, 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. The “Ole Redhead” 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, Jackie Smth making NSU the only program to have two “Mr. Irrelevants” in the 29-year history 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 Mike Green awarded the first Gale Sayers Humanitarian Citation in 1988. Stephens was the choice of a committee headed by 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 ultiTerrence McGee mate. 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. 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

Flaming N logo

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.

Fight song

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 @NSUDemonsFB

How Vic became Vic

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.

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.”
