Kincade’s journey continues as former Ole Miss QB leads Grambling to SWAC Championship

HOUSTON, Texas — Quarterback DeVante Kincade’s journey from Skyline High School in Dallas, Texas to Grambling State University was not a direct route down Interstate 20 like one might assume. Instead, Kincade made a stop along the way in Oxford, Mississippi at Ole Miss, where he had visions of doing whatever he could to help lead the Rebels to both SEC and national championship glory.

But as sometimes happens, life has a way of sending one down a road less traveled. In DeVante’s case, he went down a path that would eventually lead to championship glory—just not at Ole Miss as he originally planned. The key to this story, however, is that Kincade is a unique young man who has never met a stranger in his life.

Wherever he stops, he makes friends. Let me rephrase; he quickly makes friends.

SWAC Champion

In front of 24,917 at NRG Stadium in Houston on Saturday, Kincade helped lead his Grambling State University Tigers to a 27-20 win over Alcorn State University in the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) championship game.

The win marked the 25th conference title for SWAC-powerhouse Grambling, ending Alcorn’s improbable bid for three consecutive conference titles.
