Albany-- Albany State isn't giving up on it's goal of completing it's football stadium. Saturday the college held it's 2nd annual "Day at the Stadium."

ASU friends and alumni were encouraged to come out to the partially built stadium, meet the football team, and donate money to complete the project.

"We appreciate what anyone would do for us in our time of need ,so to speak, and it's important for us to know that the community is behind us," says ASU football player Uyl Joyner.

ASU has already collected about 250-thousand dollars in donations towards the 2 million dollar project.

The second phase of construction includes the visitor's stands and the press box. They hope to complete construction by August in time for the first home game.
