Wildcats owner turns coach for a day

July 13, 2007

Albany - There are many ties between the National Football League and the Arena Football League.

Arthur Blank, Jerry Jones, John Elway and Mike Ditka are just some of the owners of AFL teams with ties to the NFL.

The South Georgia Wildcats have a few current and former NFL players among their owners.

One of them is veteran offensive guard Edwin Mulitalo.

Mulitalo is visiting Albany for a second time this season only this time he brought an NFL Films crew with him.

NFL Films is documenting the link between the two leagues through Mulitalo who will attend Saturday night's game against Texas.

During Friday's walk-through practice, Mulitalo was took some time to offer a few pointers to the Wildcats offensive linemen.

Edwin Mulitalo said "I kind of feel a little uncomfortable that I am still playing football and at the same time they are asking me pointers. If it helps them, then I am going to help."

Wildcats lineman Kentrell Blatcher "Just giving us tips and being there as an offensive lineman. Somebody that can actually relate to us and plays on the highest level in sports."

The South Georgia Wildcats have allowed only nine sacks in 489 pass attempts this season.

Edwin Mulitalo is switching teams. After eight seasons in Baltimore, where he won a Super Bowl ring, Mulitalo will play for the Detroit Lions this year.
