Albany - Albany High coach Reginald Mitchell is a very patient man.
And that patient will likely pay off for the Indians football program down the road.
After a winless campaign in Mitchell's first season, the bad news is that the Indians will be even younger this year with only eight seniors.
The good thing is that three of those seniors are talented linemen Ryan Jackson, Lorenzo Hampton and Jatavius Campbell.
The offense will be led by sophomore quarterback Barry Diamond and junior running back Rayshon Mathis and sophomore Dontavious Brown.
Coach Mitchell knows his young team may have a few bumps on the road this year but he reminds everyone of the long term plan for the Albany High program.
Reginald Mitchell said "I tell the coaches all the time we are building for the future. Of course, you want to win right away but as a I tell them. We build for the long haul and the program will stand the test of time."
Albany High opens the season at home on August 31st against Lanier County.
