Grambling football focused on finishing the race in 2016

GRAMBLING — Broderick Fobbs likes to use the word hangry, a mix between hunger and anger, to describe his Grambling football team.

Both words stem from an agonizing defeat in the Southwestern Athletic Conference championship game just three months ago, a hunger and an anger that will be a theme Wednesday during the Tigers' first spring practice of 2016.

"Basically, to get all the way there and to not obtain the goal is very, very painful and more painful than actually not having even been there at all," Fobbs told The News-Star on Tuesday in regards to Grambling's loss to Alcorn State. "Our guys are very determined and they're driven to complete the task from beginning to end."

Fobbs met with Grambling's returners Monday for a team meeting with the discussion centered around completing the race. The Tigers experienced a breakout year in 2015 by finishing 9-3 including a perfect 9-0 run through the SWAC until Alcorn handed them a blowout loss in Houston.
