G-Men go west for next game

Coach Melvin Spears and staff will take the GSU football team to Seattle to face Washington State University at Seattle Seahawks Qwest Field for a 7 p.m. showdown Saturday.

The game will be another test for the Tigers as they take on a Division One PAC-10 team.

“What we need to do is stay focused and not let the fact that their conference is supposed to be better than ours worry us,” said Tommy Dural, a senior offensive lineman.

“We realize that they’re a Division One school, but scheduling Grambling will not be an easy task for them,” he said. “When we play them this weekend we will be representing the SWAC and black college football as a whole.”

The Tigers come into the game with a record of 1-0 and leading in the SWAC Western Division by blowing out Alabama A&M 44-0. The Cougars enter the game with a 2-0 record with wins over Idaho (38-24) and Nevada (55-21). Some key players for the Tigers are QB Bruce Eugene, HB Ab Kuaan, WR Henry Tolbert, and WR Moses Harris, and some of the key players for the Cougars of Washington State are QB Alex Brink, HB Jerome Harrison, HB DeMaundray Woolridge and WR Jason Hill.
