Grambling Legends return to help induct 2016 class

GRAMBLING, Louisiana -- Grambling State is amid trying times both institutionally and as an athletic department with the revolving door of presidents that have come through the university of late.

The most recent news came when Willie Larkin resigned as president last month, a move that signified more uncertainty for the Grambling faithful.

This weekend, dozens of prominent former athletes will be on campus in hopes of providing a bit of positive reinforcement to the legacy of Grambling. A star-studded cast of the likes of Doug Williams, Willis Reed, Willie Brown and Shack Harris, to name a few, will all be in attendance Saturday to help introduce new members of the 2016 Grambling Legends Hall of Fame class.

"It's important we come together and try to have a positive reflection on Grambling regardless of what we're going through. If we remain strong, we got a chance of hopefully ending up with a stronger administration that can keep growing like it's been going since 1901," Williams said Thursday before he left for north Louisiana.
