Wildcats welcome back another lineman

May 7, 2008

Albany - What South Georgia Wildcats head coach Derek Stingley considered to be a weakness at the start of the 2008 AF2 season, is now a strength.

The strengthened area of the Wildcats football team that is definitely better than it was in week one of the season is the defensive front.

The defensive wall is even stronger with the return of former Albany State star James Harris.

Harris missed the last four weeks after having surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee.

Harris started his AF2 career at linebacker but was moved to the defensive front last season.

Head coach Derek Stingley believes Harris' speed and strength will make him a pass rush terror.

Jame Harris said "Of course, you get a couple of more opportunities instead of playing linebacker because the linebacker don't blitz. Sometimes you get more opportunities at the end to rush the quarterback."  

After recording just two quarterback sacks in their first three games, the South Georgia Wildcats have eight in their last three.

The Wildcats host Tennessee Valley Saturday at 7-30 at the Albany Civic Center.
