Northwestern State University honored the late Jerry Pierce by naming Section C of Prather Coliseum after the former vice president of External Affairs who passed away last November. Pierce, who once served as NSU’s Sports Information Director and whose administrative division included Athletics, served the university for nearly six decades, held season tickets in Section C and was a devoted Demon fan. His daughter Natalie Ducote and her family were present for the announcement of the designation at the Feb. 16 men’s basketball game.
