Future looks bright

Northwestern State plays its biggest game of the year on Saturday against McNeese State. Win that one and the Demons are in the thick of the SLC race.

But win or lose, the future looks bright for the Demons.

Why you ask?

Simple, the Demons began the process of going younger at midseason. Instead of losing, they've been winning and staying in the SLC race. Thus, they're getting experience AND still winning.

Some of those young players will likely be even better next year. Freshman quarterback Germayne Edmond is a versatile threat who coach Scott Stoker says "will play more this week.''

The team's leading rusher, Byron Lawrence, is a sophomore.

And on defense, freshmen Gary Riggs and Josh Adams are starting and contributing right now.

So while the Demons will try to make this season memorable, they likely will be among the favorites and contenders for the SLC title next year.
