Stand United with Coach Black GoFundMe drive underway

NATCHITOCHES, La. - A devastating fire over the weekend has displaced the family of one of Northwestern State University's most
beloved athletic personalities.

Late Saturday night the blaze destroyed nearly everything in the home of Harris Wilson Jr., also known as Coach Black.  Wilson has been involved with all of NSU's athletic teams for over 20 years.

Wilson made it outside of the burning house, then when he realized his mother and niece were not out of the house, he went back inside.

The family made a narrow escape through a small window at the back of the home and were not injured.

On Monday Wilson and his relatives were preparing to relocate to a temporary home while NSU Athletics administrators and coaches were gathering clothing and setting up a GoFundMe account, managed by the Demons Unlimited Foundation, to assist "Coach Black" as needed with other important items.
