Natchitoches Jr. High School JAG was afforded the opportunity to job shadow the coaches of Northwestern State University April 23. Coach William Lewit worked diligently with JAG sponsor Jacquelyn Rainwater to arrange the event.

Coaches taking time out of their busy day to accommodate the group include Coach Mike McConathy who discussed the business of basketball, expounding on the importance of good character, Coach Lewit discussed community service, Coach Moore talked about recruiting, Coach Spielbauer discussed camp/fundraising and Coach Simons discussed academic monitoring and the role of an assistant coach.

JAG members played 5-on-5 with the basketball players.
