Evans stepping down as trainer at NW State
Ed Evans, Northwestern State's head athletic trainer since 1989, is retiring and will be honored at a reception in Natchitoches at Prather Coliseum on Thursday, July 26.

Evans was a leader in the state's chapter of the National Athletic Trainers Association, serving six years as president of the LATA and six more years as secretary-treasurer. In 2004, Evans was named the regional "College Athletic Trainer of the Year" by the Southeastern Athletic Trainers Association.
