Demons soaking in history lessons as NSU-Tech series revival nears

They’ve seen videos, they’ve seen photos, they’ve heard talks.
 
The last few days have been a crash course in history and tradition for Northwestern State’s football players, not many who were born when the Demons last teed it up in 1994, against their ancient rivals, the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs.
 
Now, they’ve seen the T-shirt.
 
Demon fan Wayne James came to Wednesday’s NSU Quarterback Club Luncheon proudly wearing a colorful half-century old T-shirt from the 1963 State Fair Classic.
 
It was a souvenir of his favorite football game ever.
 
“I had a blind date to go to the ballgame with a pretty girl from Winnfield named Carrie Nicklas, and I wore this T-shirt,” he told the crowd. “This year, we celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary. I’d kept the shirt, and she cleaned it up. It’s a little tight now but that’s alright.”
