Today the Grambling State University Band Family lost our "Voice" today. Leon Thomas, III the longtime band announcer passed away this morning from complications with Colon Cancer. To the people on HBCU Sports Leon was a great and longtime friend to Kenn Rashad, MackG, myself, and Dr. Phreeze. MackG, Dr. Phreeze and myself grew up within a stones throw to one another and Leon.

For those of you wondering....Leon was the brother with beard at the Bayou Classic Battle of the Bands. He will be greatly missed.

MackG can tell you there were countless nights after GSU football games that we would go to his parents home and chop it up.

Please keep the Thomas Family in your prayers.
