Bufford, Tigers gain steam as SWAC tourney approaches

The Grambling men’s baseball team has been surging as of late. 

The team has won nine of the last 13 games after starting out 0-11.

A player that has stood out during the team’s resurgence is infielder Cameron Bufford. 

For the Tigers, Bufford’s batting has been a great constant for the team the entire season. 

Bufford is a sophomore from South Holland, Ill. 

He currently leads the team in home runs and RBIs. Bufford was named SWAC Co-Hitter of the Week for March 5.

The Illinois native said the recognition made him feel “really good” and believes his team will need it to continue racking up the wins. 

“I have been able to keep my level of play so high by knowing what I am capable of and performing it everyday on the field,” said Bufford.

During the team’s recent four-game winning streak, Bufford has registered as least one RBI in each game. 

“What has been the key to our recent winning streak is everyone playing their role. It doesn’t matter if it’s big or a small role everyone has been doing their job,” Bufford said.

As they sit atop the SWAC West, Bufford will be relied on to continue his great play.
