Grambling ushers in new era of quarterbacks

GRAMBLING, Louisiana — Broderick Fobbs had about the closest thing to a set-it-and-forget quarterback during his first two years as Grambling's coach.

That's why there's a bit of an eerie feeling around the program in 2016 without Johnathan Williams, the 2015 Southwestern Athletic Conference Player of the Year who totaled 68 touchdowns during his two years as the Tigers' starter, 42 of which came last season during a 9-3 campaign.

"It's a different deal because Johnathan was more of a quiet assassin that played extremely hard and played extremely well and did all the little things the right way," Fobbs said Friday at the start of Grambling's fall camp. "Not that these guys aren't, but they've got a ways to go."

Grambling enters new territory this fall with uncertainty at the position. Junior DeVante Kincade, sophomore Trevon Cherry and redshirt freshman Charles Wright are vying for the starting job during camp.
