Wildcat players enjoy working with ASU youth program

June 21, 2007

 Albany - The South Georgia wildcats may have a week off but two of the players are busy with their other job.

Wildcats quarterback Julian Reese and defensive back Roland Cola are working at Albany State's NYSP summer program for kids.

Reese is coaching football and Cola is coaching soccer where we are told he is just as talented in European football as he is with the American game.

Most of the Wildcat players are working jobs in Albany during the Arena 2 season.

Reese and Cola say the love the fact they have a chance to make a difference in the lives of the kids they are coaching.  

Julian Reese said "Alot of them want to play different sports and to be athletes. We have to explain to them that school comes first.

Roland Cola said "You are doing stuff that is dealing with outdoor sports. And that is something that you have been doing all of your life. You can help these kids better their life by getting into sports."

The South Georgia Wildcats next game is next Saturday in Manchester, New Hampshire.
