Albany duo will stay teammates in college

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Indians duo Bre'On Robinson and Quontavious Broussard have played sports together their whole lives.

"I really started playing sports because of [Quontavious.] He came to me and was like, 'You ought to start playing football and baseball and everything,'" Robinson remembers. "We just started playing sports together ever since we were young."

Now the two will stay together as they head to play football for LaGrange College.

"Really I was going to go by myself at first," says Broussard. "Then I talked and persuaded him to go and we just decided to go together."

Both say they loved every part of the Panthers' program, from the coaches and players all the way down to the team's new uniforms.

LaGrange didn't establish a football team until 2006, and Broussard and Robinson say they look forward to the challenge of helping advance a young program.

"I'm very interested," Robinson says. "I'll do everything it takes."

"You're able to be a part of something new," says Broussard. "You can be one of the first people in history to do something there."

LaGrange is coached by Matt Mumme, the son of former Valdosta State head coach Hal Mumme.
