Started from the bottom: GSU seniors eye SWAC title

GRAMBLING — Sometime this weekend, Justin Miller, Chad Williams and the rest of Grambling's senior class will walk out on NRG Field in Houston, take a deep breath and visualize their career path.

They started from the bottom. Now they're at the top. Saturday night, they hope the top includes the Southwestern Athletic Conference championship trophy the Tigers have chased for years.

"We stayed grounded through it all," Grambling wide receiver Chad Williams said. "It's just like now the tables have turned. Everyone looks at you like the little brother you used to pick on, but now we're looking at everybody like we're going to pick on you guys for a change."

To say Grambling was picked on in 2013 would be a nice way of putting it.

Seniors like Williams, Miller, Jestin Kelly, Verlan Hunter, Trey Goins and Trent Scott, to name a few, were either freshmen or redshirt freshman during a season most wanted to forget.
