HBCU FOOTBALL KICKOFF 2019
The HBCU Kickoff for the 2019 college football season will take place in Atlanta, Georgia at Georgia State University this Sunday at 3:00PM on ESPN 2. We cannot be more pleased that Coach Clay Perry of Scout Trout Elite will be covering the match-up between Bethune Cookman and Jackson State University and Coach Trout has been studying immensely on the historical factors that reside at Bethune Cookman University. In this must see video below, Coach Trout talks about his experiences last year at the Grambling vs Southern Bayou Classic and more in-depth about the legendary figure Mary Mcleod Bethune, who has been an instrumental figure in our education system.
MEAC VS SWAC CHALLENGE
The MEAC vs SWAC Challenge in 2019 will be Bethune Cookman facing off against Jackson State University and we are extremely amplified beyond measures for this event. We will be covering the MEAC vs SWAC challenge for the 2020 NFL Draft at College Football Today, as Coach Clay Perry will be representing Scout Trout Elite & College Football Today on the sidelines.

HBCU KICKOFF 2018
The HBCU kickoff in 2018 seen PVAMU beat the piss out of NC Central and Dawonya Tucker emerged on our NFL Draft board at College Football Today. This kid is dynamite packed into a small bundle of straight up lightning when he touches the football field. We also have a old D1 commit at Scout Trout Elite named Jermaine Jackson out of Kentucky who is going to make a big impact this year for the Prairie View A&M football team. We recently were able to visit the PVAMU campus at Scout Trout Elite. Watch the video below, where Coach Trout smashes a 60 yard drop kick!
GRAMBLING STATE FOOTBALL
After this Grambling State football preview from last year, we will have more extensive coverage of the HBCU kickoff and MEAC vs SWAC Challenge, but respects must be paid at College Football Today.
Having been at the 2018 Bayou Classic where I got to witness most of the festivities of the events in New Orleans and with the big Grambling Tigers' win over Southern, I started researching one of the most winning college football teams of all-time. If Coach Fobbs can win recruiting battles against the likes of Nick Saban and the University of Alabama, well, I would have to say the resurgence of Grambling football, as well as HBCU Football is more alive than it has ever been. Maurice Robinson chose Grambling over the likes of Alabama, Florida and LSU, while also stating that he wants to play defensive back for the Tigers. This extremely bright young man was quoted saying,
“It was a hard process from the start,” Robinson told The News-Star Monday. “I had big colleges looking at me. All of that could get into your head if you don’t take care of the process the right way. It was an easy decision to make. I didn’t really fall into the light that they shined on me, I didn’t get into the hype they threw at me."
Well I guess this young man realizes his path to the next level involves playing time and a coach like Broderick Fobbs who shows compassion, understanding and an unfathomable amount of loyalty to the players he coaches. Who knows, maybe those D1 powerhouses were not giving him a choice to play at the position he desired, but offering him as the stellar dual-threat QB that he is. It really is not our job to speculate as thousands of scenarios could have led to this young man choosing Grambling and Coach Fobbs is a man who looks at the recruit, not the stars attached to their name. Maybe Robinson felt the sincerity of the Grambling program and also recognized the historic program that has existed at Grambling and is re-surging under Coach Fobbs.
COACH EDDIE ROBINSON LEGACY
Coach Eddie Robinson will have a long lasting legacy that is unmatched by any other coach at College Football Today.
Eddie Robinson is known as the greatest collegiate football coach of all-time by many in our industry. He was able to build Grambling State into a powerhouse during a very hard period of time for African American athletes in the southern states of America, as they were not allowed to play for southern programs. Coach Robinson retired in 1997 with 408 wins, 165 losses and 15 ties. Coach Robinson was inducted into the college football hall of fame in 1997 and was the most winning-est college football coach of all-time when the NCAA stripped Coach Paterno of 111 wins, only to return them to the scandal-ridden former Penn State head football coach. More than 200 of players that were coached by Eddie Robinson went on to the old AFL, CFL and NFL, as he set the standard for college coaches across the country on how to build a program.
Written at last years Bayou Classic in New Orleans by Scout Trout.
Coach Fobbs has the Tiger faithful dancing once again to the beautiful sound of the Grambling State band, who produces magic every time they get to perform, just as the football team did in 2017. Grambling was able to defeat "Air McNair's" alma mater Alcorn State with a score of 40-32 for yet another Grambling Tigers SWAC championship. Coach Fobbs should be the topic of conversation when you look at how he has been able to build Grambling State back to a point that would make the legendary Coach Robinson extremely proud. But after checking out this year's Grambling State team and how practices have gone so far, I believe Grambling will once again be hoisting the SWAC championship trophy and make a run in the FCS playoffs if granted the chance to compete. They will bring home another HBCU National championship, but why are they not talked about when it comes to the FCS playoffs. VICE News wrote a very good article on why SWAC and MEAC teams do not compete in the FCS playoffs, as we never truly get an FCS or 1AA National Champion, outright.
It's very intriguing that both 1AA Historically Black conferences have their own independent "Black College National Championship" and cannot compete in the FCS playoffs. That being said, we will be taking every team in 1AA into consideration when we crown our champion at the conclusion of the 2018 FCS Season. We also take into consideration that Grambling State has produced over 100 players that have gone onto the NFL and will continue to show resiliency, toughness and character moving forward under the new legendary figure, Coach Broderick Fobbs. When they say Geaux Tigers in Louisiana this season, remember the inept Ed Orgeron doesn't have a pot to piss in and the best coach in your state resides at Grambling State University, home of the Tigers!
