The Grambling State University football team, led by third year head coach Broderick Fobbs, will host the annual Spring Black and Gold Game Saturday (April 9) at 1 p.m. in the Eddie G. Robinson Memorial Stadium.
Also known as the G-Men, offensive and defensive players will go head to head on the field, showcasing their best athletic skills during the scrimmage game as they compete for positions and bragging rights.
The Black and Gold game will give alumni, students, faculty, staff, fans, spectators and the media an opportunity to see how Fobbs’ insistence on mental and physical preparation, teamwork, dedication and fundamentals of football has been instilled into the players while getting a sense of what to expect during the 2016-2017 football season.
“We graduated quite a number of guys in December and more are graduating next month,” said Fobbs, “but we have a good group returning, a good crop of transfers and some really good signees. I can’t wait to see what they can do on the field with some real football action.”
Returning this season and playing this Saturday are players to include defensive back Guy Stallworth and wide receiver, who have both shared the accomplishment of being chosen as an SBN Black College All-American. Fan favorite, running back and Richwood High School product Martez Carter will also suit up on the field to join the offense in an attempt to get past defenders to include defensive linemen Donovan McCray and DeVaughn Madise.
Admission is free and the event is open to the public.
