Collie J. Nicholson, Grambling's first sports information director, wrote the school right into the national consciousness and he did it with nothing more than a battered typewriter and a big heart. Nicholson served as Sports Information Director at Grambling for thirty years through 1978, forging a lasting identity for the country college and shaping the careers of countless young student athletes with his flair for descriptive writing.
