Grambling fans stood to their feet as the G-Men played their hearts out and defeated Alcorn State University, in a repeat of last year’s SWAC championship. After quickly shifting momentum at half-time to gain the lead, the Tigers captured the SWAC title 27- 20 against the Braves.
When the clock finished ticking, Grambling’s head coach Broderick Fobbs cried tears of joy, realizing that all the hard work his team and Grambling had done, had finally paid off.
“Well, what a difference a year makes,” Fobbs told The News Star. “We’ve been in tough spots before, but we never stop believing.”
