ULM hosted its season-ticket sale campaign and fundraiser event “2018 Kickoff with Doug Pederson,” Saturday, in Fant-Ewing Coliseum.

This event was part of the “Hawkfest,” all-day event that happened over the weekend.

Pederson is the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles. In his second year coaching the eagles, he led his team to a Super Bowl and win.

The former Warhawk was a three-year starting quarterback from 1988-90. He ranks among ULM’s all-time top 10 in pass attempts, pass completions, passing yards and TD passes.

Pederson discussed his journey from Ferndale, Washington, to his experiences as a student-athlete at NLU and later as a quarterback in the NFL.

He also shared his story of launching his coaching career at Calvary Baptist Academy in Shreveport and becoming a head football coach in the NFL.

Hawkfest featured several activities throughout the day.

Starting early in the morning, fans flocked to the grove and began tailgating for the day.

At noon, fans watched ULM baseball take on Appalachian State at Warhawk Field.

By 3:30 p.m., Malone stadium opened for the public, and students and community members began to enjoy themselves at the Alumni Crawfish Boil.

The spring football scrimmage happened later that evening.
