ULM football brought out its big gun to serve as honorary team captain Saturday at Southern Miss.Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, the former ULM star quarterback and defending Super Bowl champion, was in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, to support the Warhawks and the team made it worth the trip as it delivered a 21-20 victory. "I pitched it to Coach Viator and we got in touch with the right people and we pulled it off," said Pederson, who joined the Voice of the Warhawksin the radio booth at halftime for a quick interview. "No matter where his hectic schedule takes him, Pederson said he makes watching ULM football games each week a priority. "With ULM going back and reconnecting and tapping that resource of former athletes with the logo and color change, it kind of brings it full circle," Pederson said.
