Roberts, who was named the Lions’ 15th head coach in December 2011, will be joined by new Tulane head coach Curtis Johnson, LSU Coordinator of Football Relations and External Relations Charlie Baglio, O. Perry Walker head coach Emanuel Powell and former New Orleans Saints Pro Bowl performer Michael Lewis.
Roberts, who posted a 47-16 record in five seasons at Division II Delta State, will give an outlook to the Lions’ 2012 season that begins Saturday as Southeastern will open the season against SEC newcomer Missouri in Columbia, Mo.
Admission is $18 for members, in honor of Archie Manning's college jersey number and $25 for non-members. Membership for the season is $50 for 16 weeks, running every Monday from August 27-December 10, with the exception of meeting on Tuesday, September 4, due to Labor Day.
