ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany High football star Carl Turner will continue to pursue his dream of playing college football at prep school in Atlanta.
Lineman Carl Turner is headed to the Atlanta Sports Academy.
Albany High head coach Felton Williams says the Atlanta Sports Academy will field its first ever football team this fall.
The schedule this season includes other prep schools and the Valdosta State and Fort Valley State junior varsity teams.
Turner will be able to play football and improve his academic standing in order to qualify for a division one scholarship.
"They really talked to me and gave me details about the school. It's a preparatory school first year and they really liked me so I really wanted to go up there" said Turner.
Coach Williams says Georgia State and Tennessee State are among the teams interested in Turner.
