Usually the annual spring game marks the end of the spring season for a college football program.
That’s not the case for the Grambling State Tigers.
They’ve still got four more practices to go after playing the Black and Gold game on Saturday.
It’s a little unusual, but it’s hard to go against a coach who just won a national championship.
Coach Broderick Fobbs says he uses the final practices to clean up the product on the field.
Broderick Fobbs said, “We always like to practice four days after our spring game, and the reason why is we want to make corrections firstly, but then secondly we want ot make sure that we focus on situations. You know, all those different drills that are important to winning a football game is something we try to focus on during the last week of spring drills.”
DeVante Kincade said, “Well he wants to see how we respond off of like a big win or a big game, things like that because next year we play the Bayou Classic, and then the next week it would be the SWAC championship. So, he’s just using that to be prepared at any time.”
The Tigers are set to open the season September 2nd in New Orleans against Tulane.
