Savage eyeing move to AFL

July 21, 2005

Albany - The South Georgia Wildcats first season has been disappointing to say the least with just three wins in 14 games

. The silver lining in the dark cloud of the 2005 season has been play of former Westover High standout Antwone Savage.

The former Oklahoma Sooner had stood out since being moved to the offensive specialist position five games ago.

During those five games, Savage had caught 43 passes, nine of which were for touchdowns.

The good news for Savage and the bad news for Wildcat fans is that Antwone's good season means he may not be in a South Georgia uniform next year.

A spot on the roster of an Arena Football League team is the goal of every AF2 player and that includes Antwone Savage.

Antwone says there are several AFL teams are already interested in him for next season and when this year's AF2 season ends in two weeks, he will sit down and listen to them all.

Savage said "I have been getting some calls from different teams. I am just waiting to see which team is going to give me the best offer. Which team is going to give me the best offer is where I will be at."

Antwone Savage went to training camp with Austin Wranglers of the AFL before the 2004 season but was released before the first game.

The South Georgia Wildcats hit the road for the final time this season when they travel to Macon to play the playoff bound Macon Knights Saturday night at the Macon Coliseum.
