Savage ready to return to the gridiron

April 7, 2005

Albany - Former Dougherty High star Adrian Cockfield is not the only Albany native looking forward to the South Georgia Wildcats first ever game Saturday night at the Albany Civic Center.

Former Westover High and University of Oklahoma standout Antwone Savage is also looking forward to playing in front of his family, friends and high school coaches.

Unlike Cockfield who is was one of the top receivers in the Arena 2 Football League last year, Antwone Savage hasn't played a down since in more than two years since graduating from Oklahoma.

He hopes playing for his hometown arena football team will revive his football career.

Antwone Savage said "I hope this is just a start over for me. Get my feet back in the door and get my name back out there. Come in Saturday and start off the season right and end it right."

Antwone Savage is also a teacher in the Dougherty County School System and his younger brother Aairon signed a scholarship to play football at Auburn.

Update: The Wildcats lost their inaugural game 52-41 to Macon on Saturday.
