Albany - In Arena Football League, offense is the name of the game.
The South Georgia Wildcats are expecting to give scoreboards in the AF2 a workout this season with offensive coordinator Rickey Foggie.
A ten year arena veteran as a player, Rickey Foggie has been named the top assisant coach in the Arena 2 league for the last two years.
He joined the Macon Knights in the middle of the 2006 season and the team averaged 55 points a game under his direction.
Two years ago, Foggie teamed with quarterback Julian Reese and receiver Chavis McCollister in Amarillo here the Duster offense also averaged 55 points a game.
Coach and players are back together in the Wildcats training camp where both Reese and McCollister are battling for starting jobs.
Foggie says it is the players and not any grand scheme that has resulted in all of the offensive output for the last two years.
Rickey Foggie said "I don't think it is more about my system. I think it is more about the players that I have been able to surround myself with in that system. I try to keep it simple as possible.
Get the ball to those guys and let them make plays."
Rickey Foggie says he will keep the offense very simple in Saturday night's scrimmage at the Albany Civic Center against the Alabama Steeldogs.
The regular season opener is March 31st at home against the Arkansas Twisters.
