Albany -  Members of the South Georgia Wildcats would love the chance to play on the same field with NFL stars like Seattle Seahawks receiver Deion Branch.

The Wildcats got a chance to share a lane with the former Super Bowl MVP on Monday.

Deion Branch joined the Wildcats for their weekly bowling night at the AMF Bowling Center.

The weekly bowling session is a great way for the first place Cats to unwind before they get ready for their next game.

Wildcats defensive back Pierre Lee "It carries on to the field.  We come in here and have good time together and carry it on to the field and play as a team."

Wildcats receiver P.J. Berry  "Just to have fun like I said away from football it is a great time.  Like you said bond because it is not football.  It is something else."

Deion Branch  "It is a big thing. They are doing a great job.  Hopefully, in the future these guys will be able to make a real big push in the playoffs."

The Wildcats go for their sixth straight win Saturday at Peoria.

Deion Branch leaves for training camp with the Seattle Seahawks in less than two weeks.
