Sometimes the scoreboard doesn’t tell the big story — you have to look at the big picture.
Yes, Grambling State lost Saturday night, 31-21 to the University of Arizona. GSU head football coach Broderick Fobbs has said before he doesn’t believe in moral victories, but he shouldn’t feel bad about the loss to the Wildcats that left GSU at 1-1 on the season.
Not many people other that hardcore GSU fans expected the game to be close —Arizona entered the game as a 45-point favorite to defeat the G-Men.
On Tuesday night area residents will once again have the opportunity to remember those men, women and children who have lost their lives to domestic violence.
Domestic Abuse Resistance Team Community Advocate Terrie Queen Autrey said this year’s Candlelight Vigil will have two more women added.
“Right now we are at 30 individuals who have lost their lives to domestic violence,” she said. “We have a tendency to forget that these individuals were real people. By hosting the vigil we remember their lives and those people that were left behind.”
She will be returning for a second stint of duty as head women’s basketball coach at Grambling State University, having been announced for that position this past weekend following her resignation with the same responsibilities at North Carolina A&T University.
