The noon event will feature the Demons' new head football coach Jay Thomas and NSU's director of athletics, Greg Burke.
Reservations are being accepted for the Kickoff Luncheon and can be made by calling the Independence Bowl office at 318-221-0712 or toll free at 888-414-BOWL (2695). The lunch will carry an all-inclusive charge of $20 per person, with three entrée choices, and attendees are asked to please pay with cash if possible.
"This is a tremendous event each year for Northwestern State University and for anybody who loves the spirit and excitement of Division I college football," said Burke. "When I was hired as director of athletics at NSU in 1996, this was my first official event as AD on my first day on the job. That's how important we consider the annual luncheon presented by the Independence Bowl, and the Shreveport-Bossier community."
Thomas will preview the Demons' 2013 season at the Kickoff Luncheon and discuss the team's progress during preseason camp.
Superior's Steakhouse is the home for NSU's in-season Shreveport-Bossier Demon Quarterback Club Luncheons held every Thursday at noon, beginning Sept. 5, during the football season.
