GRAMBLING, La. – Grambling State University fifth-year head football coach Broderick Fobbs and his staff are welcoming 95 players to campus for preseason training camp on Thursday.
The players will report on Thursday with orientation and a team welcome meeting, before spending Friday with position meetings in the early afternoon. The Tigers will hit the field for their first practice of training camp under the lights on Friday at 8:45 p.m. at Eddie G. Robinson Memorial Stadium.
Friday’s practice is open to the media, while all practices are closed to spectators.
Grambling State returns 14 starters from last season’s Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) Championship season, but with the addition of a promising recruiting class, a handful of transfers and returning players with significant playing time from last season, the Tigers enter the season hungry and with a lot of momentum.
The final scrimmage of preseason camp will be Saturday, Aug. 18, beginning at 9:30 a.m. Following lunch for the players, Grambling State will hold Media Day inside Eddie G. Robinson Memorial Stadium.
The Tigers begin the 2018 season on Saturday, Sept. 1 in Lafayette, La. against Louisiana. Kickoff from Cajun Field is set for 6 p.m.
