Another feather in NSU's cap

The Northwestern State Demons are not playing in the NCAA baseball regionals this year. That doesn't mean NSU fans don't have reasons to watch.

Head coach Rob Childress is a former Northwestern State pitching coach who has emerged as a magic man at A&M. Childress, who brought along Matt Deggs (another former NSU assistant) from Arkansas (under another ex-Demon mentor Dave Van Horn), has turned the downtrodden Aggies program back into a regional host in two years.

The Demons ties don't stop there. Five schools have coaches with ties to NSU. They are A&M, Nebraska, Southern Miss, Arkansas and Sam Houston.

For more extensive background on the coaches, check out NSU's Daily Demon blog here.

The bottom line is the Southland Conference has been a hotbed for coaching and playing prospects for years. And for one school to have ties to that many more is certainly an accomplishment NSU should be proud of.
