Martez Carter Shows Toughness in Bayou Classic Win

November 26, 2017 - The Grambling State Tigers are back in the SWAC title game in part thanks to the play of Martez Carter in the Bayou Classic.

Carter had 21 carries for 92 yards and two total touchdowns, but the signature play came near the end of the game.

After returning from a rib injury Carter punched it in from 10 yards out to give the Tigers the lead.

Coach Fobbs says the display showed what kind of player Carter is.

Broderick Fobbs said, "Well Martez, he's built differently, and he may be built like his coach. He's tough, and for him to come back from a rib injury, and he's done that before for us. Anytime I ask him to make a play he steps up, and I think that has a lot to do with how good of a player he is and how hard he reaches down deep in order to get it done. It says a lot about his heart."

The Tigers will take on Alcorn State in the SWAC championship game Saturday in Houston at NRG Stadium.
