Larry Wright:
“When you got off the bus at Grambling with Coach Eddie Robinson and coach Fred Hobdy they let you know right from the start hat first of all you got to go to church, secondly you got to go to class, thirdly you’re going to graduate from Grambling with a degree and fourthly you’re going to play basketball or football or whatever that was and he meant that.”
