Warren: Backyard path to stardom
GRAMBLING — Maybe it’s all of those backyard games as a youngster that is helping Frank Warren power his way to stardom for Grambling State University.
When the Tigers’ senior running back was growing up in Pleasant Grove, Ala., there was hardly a day that went by when a game wouldn’t be played in his family’s backyard.
“When I was little, we would be playing in the backyard all of the time, my five older brothers and myself,” Warren said. “They had a tough time tackling me, though. They would usually try and trip me because that was the only way they could stop me.”
