NEW ORLEANS — The Greater New Orleans Sports Hall of Fame will honor Grambling State football coach Broderick Fobbs at its annual awards banquet on Aug. 8.
Fobbs will be recognized at the event as the 2014-15 recipient of the Eddie Robinson Award. The award is presented annually to an athlete, coach, team or athletic administrator in Louisiana who demonstrates the qualities most associated with Grambling legend Eddie Robinson. Those qualities include outstanding achievement in athletics, academics, sportsmanship and citizenship by maximizing the use of limited resources.
Fobbs is being honored after taking over the reins of the award's namesake's program and lifting it up to seven wins last season.
