Fobbs, GSU shined in 2014

What a difference a year can make.
This time last year, Grambling State University football fans were lamenting a second straight one-win season and were wondering if the once-storied team would ever return to the level of success that made them considered to be the “Notre Dame of Black College Football.”
Today those same fans are celebrating the success of this season’s team and already looking forward to next year.
Grambling went 2-21 combined in the 2012 and 2013 seasons. Only five of the 252 Division I college football programs won as few games during that span.

Brian Warren is an entrepreneur and his latest endeavor is one that he hopes will leave Ruston a healthier place.
The name of his newest endeavor — Gibson’s Natural Grocer — came from Brian Warran’s grandmother.
“She lived to be 104,” Warren said. “If you asked her what her secret was, she would tell you it was eating from her garden and staying active.”
Warren’s grandmother passed away in 2011 and he said the Gibson name will die with his uncle because there were no sons.
